Kara Wai (惠英紅), Vincent Wong (王浩信), Phillip Keung (姜皓文), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), and Mandy Wong (黃智雯) gathered for the blessing ceremony for their new drama Detective Investigation Diaries <刑偵日記>. The drama will be a collaboration between TVB, Youku, and American company Imagine Entertainment. The drama will not be a sequel to The Defected <鐵探>, and TVB hopes to bring a refreshing take on the thriller genre.
Kara and Vincent play challenging roles as mother and son with multiple personalities. Vincent has three personalities and Kara has five to six. Vincent exclaimed, “I’m very excited to work with Kara! I’m giving myself lots of pressure because I want to perform to the best of my abilities. It is always challenging acting as someone with multiple personalities. I need to be able to store away my real personality first.”
This is Kara’s most challenging role to-date as her character often has hallucinations of varying levels and she possesses a different attitude for each of Vincent’s personalities. She joked that she has to ask Vincent each day which son he is. They often have to film scenes where they are arguing hysterically, and Kara had accidentally hit Vincent the other day on the filming set. She feels that this drama is more strenuous than working on an action film.
