On July 16thLouise Lee (李司棋), Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Evergreen Mak (麥長青), Rebecca Chan (陳秀珠), and ex i-Cable anchor, Priscilla Wong (黃翠如), attended a costume fitting press conference for TVB’s upcoming drama, Heart Road GPS <心路GPS>. Produced by Lee Yim Fong (李艷芳),whose last TVB production was 1996’s One Good Turn Deserves Another <地獄天使>, Heart Road GPS is a light-hearted drama that centers almost exclusively on the lives of the employees working in a television station.

Ruco Chan stars as a young television director who lives with his mother, portrayed by Rebecca Chan. He soon discovers that his producer, portrayed by Louise Lee, is in fact his birth mother. Ruco, Louise, and Rebecca will share a heartfelt “mother-son” triangle relationship.

Priscilla Wong’s Debut Drama

Priscilla “Fish” Wong, who left her previous management, Sundream Motion Pictures, to join TVB in 2012, will star as Ruco’s assistant director. Priscilla is best known for her hosting gigs produced by i-Cable, and was once dubbed as “Stephen Chow’s personal host.” In 2008, she starred opposite Dicky Cheung (張衛健) in Sundream’s 2008 film The Champions <奪標>, and earned critical praise for her performance.

Although Priscilla had previous acting experience from the films Love Dog Doc <妙狗仁心> and The ChampionsHeart Road GPS will be her first television drama. Priscilla is thankful towards producer Lee, and described her feelings as “hitting the jackpot.” However, she added, “But I don’t have enough experience. I’m really nervous! I’m afraid that I will have a lot of outtakes.”

Ruco and Priscilla’s characters will share a hate-love relationship. Asked if he is worried about all the outtakes Priscilla will make, Ruco responded, “She’s filmed movies before! I actually learned a lot from her. I used to watch a lot of her travelogue programs, and she makes me realize that there are still many places that I haven’t traveled to yet.”

Priscilla stepped in and said, “I’m a newcomer! I’m afraid that I will slow things down. When my sifu, Sandy Yu (余詠珊) brought me to see TVB high executives, Catherine Tsang (曾勵珍) told me that I will be guaranteed a character with dialogue. I was not expecting it to be a lead character! I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot!”

Heart Road GPS will also star Evergreen Mak as a reporter and Yu Yang (于洋) as a television producer. The cast also includes Stanley Cheung (張景淳), Leung Ka Ki (梁嘉琪), Law Lok Lam (羅樂林) and TVB newcomer Hero Yuen (阮政峰).

    TVB is betting on new talent; Priscilla Wong’s anchoring background reminds me of Flora Chan.

    It will be interesting to see Ruco portray a director, although I would prefer that the show center around TV news anchors instead of production staff.

      Larry,
      “Heart Road GPS” indicates that this will focus on issues of the heart, mainly Ruco’s conflicts with his mothers and resolving his love-hate relationship with Priscilla Wong.

      While it is nice to see Ruco flex his range in comedies, he is much better as a dramatic actor in more serious fare.

        Agree. The best way to promote an artiste is not to ask him to act some small light-hearted series, but to act some serious characters with some kind of backgrounds.

        Chan Chin Pang has good acting skills, and should be able to handle some serious and dramatic characters.

        Sandcherry,
        At least Ruco is not appearing in another Amy Wong produced drama and is getting chances from other TVB producers.

        With his solid skills, he may become frequently utilized.

        I sense that Virginia Lok is halfway out the door. All her favorites are now filming in mainland China. It is interesting to see who will replace her.

        Unfortunately, TVB artists who have just started leading series, nothing is assured yet. Who the company decides to promote next may change depending on the executives and producers that rise within the ranks.

    There are so many new actresses being promoted by TVB to act 1st lead roles. Even Priscilla Wong and Leung Ka Ki get to act 1st lead roles. But why not Nancy Wu and Elaine Yiu? These two actresses are very good in acting and have been with TVB for so many years. It is not fair to them!

      Sandcherry,
      Maybe Nancy and Elaine will be promoted to lead actresses. Even Lai Lok Yi has been given a chance now and Matt Yeung’s career has been resurrected.

      TVB knows that it may lose popular artists who’s contracts will be expiring soon.

      Casting newcomers and promoting their supporting to leading roles is a very telling sign. This “promotion” is happening on all fronts, with new producers as well as artists.

        I surely hope so. I know Nancy Wu has been cast for a short 5-episode series, paired up with Oscar Leung and Vincent Wong. Nancy’s acting is way better than some of the top 5 fadans, and she should be promoted by TVB to act some drama series with someone like Bosco Wong, Michael Tse, Chan Ching Pang, or Ron Ng. Even Natalie got a 1st lead role to act with Wayne Lai in Detective Colombo.

        Nancy paires up with many male leads in Txb, but it doesnt mean she has leading role. So pairing up with who isnt important, just give the girl leading role.

        Even IF Nancy and Elaine are to be promoted to top status, we know it’s only because of the talent drain TVB is suffering these days. Some deflecting to other studios/stations, some expanding into the Chinese market. It’s a shame if the opportunities only come THEN, because they’re both deserving of the chance long before that. Even now. Even the last few years.

        Didn’t Nancy come from TVB’s acting class…? She’s clearly demonstrated her abilities time and time again, she’s put in all the hard work and no fast tracking. That’s the way it should be done. Oh, but TVB just loves to take the shortcut and be so blatant with their favouritism.

        Back on topic: I’m intrigued to see Priscilla’s acting.

    Actually im looking forward to see Ruco interacting with Rebecca and Louise both great veteran actresses far beyond current fadans.

    Hmm will this be a little like “a simple life”? Evergreen is great as always. Must be the weakest female casts ever, LOL.

      Agree. Both Louise Lee and Rebecca Chan are very good artistes. Chan Chin Pang is very lucky to interact with them in this drama series. He will learn a lot from them.

    So, TVB is in need of new faces. Good, but cast them in supporting. I would rather TVB promote their 2nd/3rd line artists. Srly, Nancy Wu is overdue for a lead role.

    And Ruco, it’s good that he’s leading now, but cast him in grand productions. TVB don’t really promote low budget series.

      In other words, Chan Chin Pang is NOT in TVB’s promotion list Even Jason Chan is being highly promoted with his green acting, paired up with Linda Chung in Blissful Ferris Wheels.

    • Hannah replied:

      I read in another article Priscilla knows the executives, and she met up with Catherine. So, Priscilla is leading because of connections.

      • sandcherry replied:

        It always works well through connections. I think Nancy Wu will have to make some “special” connections with TVB Senior Management or producers if she wants to get some 1st lead roles. Good acting skills do not get artistes anywhere.
