Ruco Chan, Linda Chung, and Edwin Siu at “Big Wheel” Costume Fitting

The costume fitting for new TVB drama, Big Wheel <巨輪>, was held on September 19. Since the drama is set in the 1990s, Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) and other cast members appeared in fashions from the period. Ruco and Edwin wore wigs, in which Ruco’s side-swept bangs were reminiscent of  Andy Lau’s (劉德華) iconic hairstyle from the period.

With the story of Big Wheel encompassing a two-decade period, the marked changes in Hong Kong entering the new millennium will be explored. Producer Amy Wong (王心慰) announced that the 30-episode drama will also film on location in Macau for one month.

Ruco Chan will be involved in a love triangle with Linda Chung and model-turned-actress, Ankie Belkie (貝安琪). Ruco was uncertain whether he will have any bed scenes with his female costars. “I feel very fortunate; I have a kissing scene with Linda in the drama, but it will not be too passionate. I also have a [kiss] with Ankie as well, which may go beyond simply kissing.”

Both Ruco and Linda were eager to collaborate together for the first time. Ruco praised Linda’s acting skills, which were able to move the audiences. Linda believes that she will generate good sparks with Ruco onscreen.

Linda will portray sisters with good friend, Leanne Li (李亞男). As the duo had once shared an apartment together, they were extremely close and understood each others’ personalities well. It will not be difficult for the women to portray sisters onscreen.

Edwin Siu said that he was envious that Ruco and Linda will portray a romantic couple. Edwin said, “I only have Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) in the drama. Kristal’s long-hair is very refreshing. I will portray my character from age twenties to forties.”

Other cast members in Big Wheel include Louise Lee (李司棋), Susan Tse (謝雪心), Louis Yuen (阮兆祥), Louis Cheung (張繼聰), Joseph Lee (李國麟), Gregory Lee (李泳豪), and Steven Wong (黃嘉樂).

  1. A brand new cast for TVB’s audience!

    Ruco Chan is a good actor, though Linda is a more popular actress acting more lead roles. I am sure they will have some new sparkles acting together as a couple.

    Good to see Edwin Siu acting more major roles. He is a very decent actor and should get promoted by TVB.

  2. Is Ankie Belkie a stage name? I hope so..

    Yay! Fresh couple pairing of Ruco and Linda! I’m guessing Leanne is paired with Louis then?

  3. Linda has good chemistry with her costars. I’m looking forward to see Ruco with her.

    Ruco has been filming a lot lately.

  4. omg im so excited for this. it brings back memories of the 90s dramas. but then therell need to be a lot of changes in the scenery and furniture and stuff like that…looks like they had a hard time finding baggy clothes in the costume fitting.
    yanoe i kinda wish they didnt film in HD and went to the old grayish hue to things. kinda miss that…..
    but there are so many things to consider that im guessing that this drama wont dwell in the 90s for a long time. tvb city is only capable of ancient dramas and 50s

    1. There shouldn’t be much change from the 90s, just go to someone’s grandparents’ house to film. Most grandparents don’t exactly change their interior from year to year.

      1. Nicole,
        “There shouldn’t be much change from the 90s, just go to someone’s grandparents’ house to film. Most grandparents don’t exactly change their interior from year to year.”

        Hilarious comment. Some grandparents’ homes here are worse, stuck in 1970s or 1980s decor, with pink wash basins!

  5. This series has a great costume and makeup director. They managed to bring back 90’s style.

  6. I see that fat tenant in the group photo. Haha, he looks cute as usual.

  7. LOL I was born in the 90s. It doesn’t feel that long ago, but I don’t find their looks too familiar to me. Seems more like the late 80s to me. Maybe I was too young to realize people’s fashion and style back then.

  8. OMG, Louise Lee looks just like her character Sin Yee in A Kindred Spirit.

  9. at first i thought what happen to ruco hairstyle look so similar with aaron kwok hairstyle back in 90’s. After reading the article just realize the drama is set in 90’s. Really look forward with Linda and Ruco pairing, my fave actor and actress..

  10. Wow i think this is the first 90’s theme tvb series. Cant wait for it!

  11. This show gives me a comedy feel already, LOL.

    Great that this show is made by mortals for the mortals i.e no goddesses who speaks greek *hurray* 😀

  12. I wonder if Ruco really meant it.. very fortunate that he can kiss Linda hahahaha. I think any male co-star would want to kiss young Linda 😉

  13. I thought it was gonna be a triangle been linda, Edwin, and ruco. It looks weird to pair Edwin w/ crystal. I thought she was gonna be w/ Louis yuen again.

  14. Gosh! Linda’s 90s look is awesome! So much sweeter than her usual image in the media.
    Don’t like Edwin pairing with Kristal, her looks more matured suits Louis Yuen more!
    I’m wondering what sort of theme is dis drama and what it’s like in the 90s. Hey TVB, any chances of a production with regards to the 50s/60s teddy girls/teddy boys?
