Synopsis of TVB Drama, “Presumed Accidents”

Starring Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿), Selena Li (李施嬅), Joyce Tang (滕麗名), and Raymond Cho (曹永廉), upcoming TVB drama Presumed Accidents <純熟意外> will begin airing on May 30.

Breaking out of his routine portrayal in gentle and professional roles, Lawrence will instead have many action scenes in the new drama. Although Lawrence and Sisley will develop romantic feelings for each other, his lingering feelings for his ex-wife, portrayed by Selena, will result in a love triangle.

Taking on the leading female role, Sisley’s character becomes an insurance investigator after losing her parents in a tragic accident. Due to her heartbreaking past, Sisley is wise beyond her years and begins an ambiguous relationship with Lawrence. The 25-year-old rising actress expressed her nervousness in filming a scene where she had to yell at Lawrence, “That scene was very emotional. I felt my heartbeat quicken and my hands were shaking. I didn’t think about anything. I just followed the script and went with it. This is what makes acting fun. Besides, based on previous experiences, although the senior actors seem stern and strict, they are actually are very nice people. I get along well with Lawrence and he often gives me pointers.”

Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) will portray a lawyer who steps on boundaries to win his cases. He suddenly disappears and leaves behind colleague sweetheart, Sisley. When Lok Yi reappears once again, Sisley and Lawrence have started to develop feelings for each other.

Presumed Accidents may also be a breakthrough for Selena, who will be portraying three different roles. Other than portraying Lawrence’s wife, she will also play the role of an insurance agent and another mysterious character. She expressed, “It’s like I’ve filmed three dramas! There was a lot of work involved. My voice and movements all had to be different. Luckily, all three characters were from different time periods, making it all very refreshing. Otherwise, I might become schizophrenic!” She candidly shared that the most difficult part was filming opposite of Lawrence. “I’ve collaborated with many lead actors before, such as Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Raymond Wong (黃浩然), and Vincent Wong (王浩信). They are all very similar to me. But Lawrence is on a whole different level. I was nervous filming with him. So nervous that I couldn’t even move my legs! It’s like I was a newcomer all over again.”

Meanwhile, Joyce and Raymond will portray a comedic couple. In the drama, Joyce is an investigator and is also Raymond’s boss. Joyce portrays a housewife initially, but due to problems in her marriage, she is determined to focus more on improving her physical appearance. Raymond’s character, on the other hand, was originally a smart and cunning man. However, he eventually became low-spirited and lost his ambition due to a painful experience.

    OMG! Not Sisley Choi again!! I seriously have enough of her and Grace Chan. Why are they always getting the lead roles? Are there no other senior actresses left in TVB? Selena Li has much more acting experiences than these 2 lousy actresses. I cannot stand Sisley’s voice! If I watch this series is only because Selena is in it.

    It’s frustrating that TVB continues to try to force their new actresses into these lead roles before they’re ready. Either Selena or Joyce would make a more appropriate lead. Not to mention, why are Lawrence’s female costars getting younger with each series? At this rate, for his next drama, he’ll be paired with an actress young enough to be his granddaughter!

    Slightly off topic, but I believe that MANY of these new actresses can benefit greatly from some voice training. Their voices are sometimes painful to listen to! Has anyone been watching that weekend ICAC series? One of the latest Miss HK placeholders (Carmen, I think her name is?) is in it, and her voice makes me want to puncture my eardrums.

        @isay I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks so! It’s such a shame because the rest of the cast has been fun to watch.

    If anything she wasn’t that bad in “Keeper of Darkness”, so I’m thinking her previous series that was shown this year was filmed pre – Keeper of Darkness.

    Well, tbh, I find Sisley performance better than Grace lately. Her performance in the fashion drama with moses is bearable. Hope she cut off her irritating voice and over react this time with a very veteran lead.

    I have not watched anything produced by any of this cast members but might just dare myself to watch this drama to see all the “hate” towards Sisley.

    I just can’t find myself being able to stomach the romance story between Lawrence and Sisley as Lawrence is like 20+ years older than Sisley (old enough to be her dad!). His pairing with Tracy in that one other drama was already so hard to stomach down as he literally can be both ladies’ fathers. o.o

      @riceball120 lawrence definitely looks like a father with his younger love interests. sisley’s acting in the drama is still bearable (until now).

        @janet72 maybe Sisley will be more loved in the future then lol. is she showing any signs of improvement? yes, Lawrence is too fatherly looking for these rather young love interests.

    Why do TVB like to cast Lawrence Ng in May-Dec relationship? His character has a May-Dec relationship with Kate’s character in ‘Tomorrow Is Another Day’ and now, in this series, his character has a May-Dec relationship with an even younger girl.
