Currently starring in comedy Coffee Cat Mama <貓屎媽媽>, Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) and Eliza Sam (岑麗香) will once again put their on-screen chemistry to the test in the remake of TVB classic Double Fantasies <無雙譜>.
Although Coffee Cat Mama received lukewarm reception, Bosco and Eliza’s fresh pairing still generated discussion. During filming, the two were often seen acting distant to each other to avoid romance rumors, something both easily attract. At Double Fantasies‘ costume fitting on January 6, Bosco emphasized once again that he sees Eliza as a younger sister and asked the public to give him some space to meet the right girl.
Split into three interwoven story arcs, Double Fantasies is a period fantasy drama that won acclaim in the early 1980s for its use of special effects. The series examines the human nature and moral dilemmas via creative storytelling. Cast members also took on multiple roles as both humans and supernatural spirits, inviting viewers to further consider their society’s double standards.
Rumored to star Tavia Yeung (楊怡) in earlier reports, TVB has decided to give the leading role to the heavily promoted Eliza after Louise Lee’s (李司棋) enthusiastic recommendation. Eliza will inherit Louise’s character, playing a bubbly carp spirit who falls in love with poor scholar Bosco who was abandoned by his money-hungry fiancee.
In addition, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Sonija Kwok (郭羨妮) will collaborate in a different story arc as husband and wife. Wayne becomes tired of his marriage and faces temptation to stray. He later becomes involved with a prostitute, played also by Sonija, and must decide where his heart truly lies.
Raymond Wong (黃浩然) and TV Queen Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) round out this strong leading cast to star in their own story unit. Kristal will play a pair of twin siblings, a brother and a sister. The sister will cross dress to help her brother escape serious criminal accusations. At the same time, she must try to keep her feelings for Raymond, a scholar, under control.
