Eric Tsang Invites Tony Leung to Film for TVB
While Eric Tsang (曾志偉) is busy preparing to launch the premiere of his Chinese New Year film I Love Hong Kong 2013 <2013我愛HK恭囍發財>, he also revealed to the media that Tony Leung (梁家輝) has intentions of returning to TVB to star in a drama. After all, Tony Leung is a graduate of the acting academy and “TVB Blood” still runs inside of him.
Eric said, “Tony asked me how TVB has been lately and I told him that it’s much better than before, so he asked me to help him arrange a good script and role. Tony signed with the Shaw Brothers after he graduated from the acting class so he never filmed a series before. He believes he owes TVB a favor.”
Veronica Yip (葉玉卿), who returned to Hong Kong from New York to star in “I Love Hong Kong 2013 “ may also have the opportunity to star in a TVB series. Eric shared that Veronica’s acting received rave reviews after a pre-screening preview and hopes that it will reignite her acting itch. Eric said, “It’s a shame if she decides to retire from the big screen. Before she came back to Hong Kong, she did say that she wanted to star in one movie and one series, but after the rumors broke about her financial troubles, I didn’t dare to bring it up again. In fact, there is a good script that I think is very fitting for her so maybe we can wait until her daughter is on summer vacation so she can spend an extended period of time in Hong Kong.”
Eric is definitely pulling all the stops and personal favors by asking his friends such as Andy Lau (劉德華), Tony and Veronica to return to TVB. Hopefully viewers will not have to wait too long for their favorite big screen actors and actresses to grace the small screen.
