Since tying the knot with Him Law (羅子溢) in 2016 and welcoming two children, Tavia Yeung (楊茜堯) significantly reduced her work output. Her last project with TVB was 2017’s Another Era <再創世紀>. With her children almost 4 and 2 years old, Tavia is looking to refocus on her career again. Invited by TVB to star in new drama Black Moon (黑色月光), Tavia is rumored to be taking on the role as the anti-hero and will star opposite Rosina Lam (林夏薇).
The drama is produced by Chung Cheng (鍾澍佳), who just completed News Queen (新聞女王) with Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼). Tavia expressed confidence in Chung Cheng’s work. “It’ll definitely be great. I’ll absolutely take on a project that I feel suits me well. I’m happy filming again, as it has been a few years since I’ve worked with TVB. I’m also familiar with Rosina outside of work. We previously worked on Momentary Lapse of Reason <收規華> together, so we know each other well.”
Asked who will be watching her children if she goes back to work, Tavia responded, “Him just finished work and is back home. If he is available, then he’ll take over watching the kids. We’re both comfortable with it. If the timing and character is suitable, I’ll consider coming back. Other than taking care of the kids, I also hope to put more effort into my career.”
When Him was approached for comments regarding Tavia’s comeback, he revealed the couple already has a consensus. “We both place our children as top priority. If my wife has work lined up, I won’t accept work at the time. Lighter jobs that don’t require a large time commitment are okay though.”
In addition to starring alongside Rosina, Tavia will also act with her sister Griselda Yeung (楊卓娜) for the first time. When reached for comments, Griselda replied, “Tavia briefly mentioned it, but I wasn’t sure if it would work out or not. This is the first time we would work together in a drama. We have never been in the same scenes before.” On whether she is against working with her sister, Griselda responded, “It’s not like I’m filming kissing or intimate scenes with her. I don’t know what the story is about, so I’m unsure how the characters will interact.”
