Hong Kong station, ViuTV, announced upcoming dramas which feature former TVB artistes. Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯) and Sunny Chan (陳錦鴻) will star in a new drama as a married couple. Amy Chan (陳秀雯) and Liu Kai Chi (廖啟智) are starring a separate series, tentatively titled Jiao Shu <教束>, in which they portray an assistant principal and principal respectively.
Although Sheren and Amy will not be working on the same series together, fans were glad to see the two actresses working under the same station again after a long absence. Fans recalled the two’s classic productions when they worked under both TVB and ATV.
Sheren and Amy’s first collaboration was in 1994’s Fate of Clairvoyant <再見亦是老婆>, where the two played a pair of best friends. Both having been billed as one of the top actresses at TVB in the 1990s, Sheren and Amy went from being best friends in the first collaboration, to being each other’s worst nightmares in TVB’s Files of Justice IV <壹號皇庭IV>. In Files of Justice IV, Sheren played the third-party in Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華) and Amy’s marriage.
However, their most noted and popular work together is ATV’s 105-episode classic The Good Old Days <再見艷陽天>, a series about the lives of the women who stayed at home during World War II. When the series aired, the show managed to capture an all-time high of 22-points in viewership ratings, successfully becoming ATV’s highest rated drama.
Although the two have not worked together since the 1990s, Sheren and Amy remained good friends. Surprising fans with a group picture in 2015, Sheren and Amy had dinner with the cast members from The Good Old Days, including Wong Wan Choi (黃允材), Anna Ng (吳沅儀), Gilbert Lam (林韋辰), and producer Yeung Siu Hung (楊紹鴻).
Keeping in touch with their friends back from Files of Justice IV as well, the two also shared a fun photo of the group last year. The dinner attendees included Bobby, Michael Tao (陶大宇), William So (蘇永康), Bowie Lam (林保怡), Eileen Yiu (姚瑩瑩), Flora Chan (陳慧珊), Felix Lok (駱應鈞) and Engina Lau (劉美娟).
