Charmaine Sheh Invited to Star in TVB Drama with Tony Leung Ka Fai
Ex-TVB actress, Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), is currently in negotiations to star in an upcoming TVB television drama production with Tony Leung Ka Fai (梁家輝), Michael Miu (苗僑偉), and possibly Raymond Lam (林峯).
“We did preliminary talks,” admitted Charmaine through a phone interview. “I really want to work with Tony and Michael. However, it really depends on my schedule, but I will try my best to work around it.”
Eric Tsang (曾志偉), who is currently busy behind-the-scenes to prepare for TVB’s upcoming television drama Aerobic Girls, revealed last year that he had invited Tony Leung Ka Fai to return TVB to shoot a television drama. Although Tony had never formally starred in a TVB television series before, the four-time Hong Kong Film Award-winning actor was a graduate of TVB’s artist training class of 1981 with Andy Lau (劉德華), and had worked as a body double for Chow Yun Fat (周潤發).
According to Eric, Tony “immediately agreed” to star in the TVB drama. After achieving his fourth Best Actor win at the 32nd Hong Kong Film Awards earlier this month, Tony told Eric backstage, “Yes… it is finally time for me to return [to TVB].”
Michael Miu has signed on to costar alongside Tony. Raymond Lam is also said to be in final negotiations to star as well.
The modern drama, which will be produced by Chong Wai Kin (莊偉建), is slated to begin production in January 2014, and will shoot in Vietnam.
