Josie Ho and Vincent Wong Film “Battle of Tomorrow”
Josie Ho (何超儀) has returned to TVB to shoot the station’s upcoming prison drama Battle of Tomorrow <再戰明天>. It has been over thirteen years since the 39-year-old last filmed a TVB production; her last TVB drama was 2000’s At the Threshold of an Era <創世紀>.
The cast of Battle of Tomorrow participated in a costume fitting in TVB Studios earlier this week, and Josie was seen donning a prisoner outfit. She revealed that she will be portraying a single mother with two young boys and her main love interest in the drama will be Vincent Wong (王浩信), who portrays a correctional services officer.
Josie described, “My role is miserable. Many unfortunate things happen to her. She has never met a single good person in her life, except for Vincent Wong.”
Likewise, Vincent also portrays an unfortunate character. In his youth, his character almost gets involved in the triads and suffers from bad grades in school. The first time he meets Josie’s character is when he tries to rob the convenience store she worked at. Josie forgives him, and her actions influence him to become a correctional services officer later in life.
Asked if Vincent will get slapped again in the drama, he laughed, “I will get beat up. The story will talk about how I go to prison for Josie. Because I was once a correctional services officer, I get bullied in jail.”
Josie expressed that she is prepared for the laborious filming hours of TVB. She laughed, “I actually asked if I could only work for a few hours, but I don’t know if they will listen to me. Anyway, we will try to make concessions. I still have to film another drama at the same time.”
As for why Josie accepted to film a TVB drama, she said, “It’s because of my role. If there is an excellent role, it will push me to accept it. I don’t care how difficult it will be, but please do not push me into a dung pit!”
Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), Kate Tsui (徐子珊), and Kenny Wong (黃德斌) also star in the drama.
