Double Fantasies<無雙譜>, a classic TVB period drama filmed more than 30 years ago, is to be reproduced next year. Deemed to be one of the grand dramas, it stars Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Eliza Sam (岑麗香), Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), Sonjia Kwok (郭羨妮), and Raymond Wong (黃浩然).
Filming for the drama will commence in January. Bosco and Eliza will collaborate once again onscreen after completing Coffee Cat Mama <貓屎媽媽>, which premieres on December 23. Bosco admitted feeling a little nervous since viewership ratings may be affected due to the Christmas holidays.
Casting Eliza as female lead in Double Fantasies reportedly originated from veteran actress Louise Lee (李司棋), who starred in the original drama. Eliza has recently been accepting dramas in a nonstop fashion. Asked if she is worried about viewers being tired of her, she expressed, “My characters are different, but I’m still a bit scared. I do change my hairstyle for each role though.”
To make the cast more appealing, TVB decided to add newly crowned TV Queen, Kristal Tin, and renowned TV King, Wayne Lai. When asked if having Krystal in the drama is to help boost ratings, Wayne laughed and exclaimed, “Of course! Both our colleagues and the public named her TV Queen! I’m just going to be there to lead everyone along.”
This time, Wayne will take on the role of Chu Yi Dan, who was previously portrayed by Philip Chan (陳欣健). He revealed he never watched the old series, and is not planning to. Wayne expressed, “I don’t think there is a need, because I want to use a new method to carry out the role!”
