Kelly Cheung (張曦雯) is being highly promoted by TVB. During today’s promotional event for TVB anniversary series, “The Man Who Kills Troubles” (解決師), Kelly Cheung took the opportunity to reveal she will be playing a couple with Vincent Wong (王浩信) in “Legal Mavericks 2” (踩過界2). The first series which starred Vincent Wong, Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), Ali Lee (李佳芯), and Tracy Chu (朱千雪) earned rave reviews at the time.
Since Kelly Cheung and Vincent Wong will be playing a couple again, when asked if she felt it would be boring, she responded, “Don’t know yet. I’m very honored to be joining the sequel.” When asked if she was worried to be compared to Ali Lee, “I did think about it because she is my friend and a Best Actress. I don’t want to disappoint everyone.” Kelly Cheung also clarifies she is playing a new character and not replacing Ali Lee.
When hk01.com spoke with the producer of the sequel, Lam Chi Wah, he expressed, “We initially planned to start filming in the middle of December. Because we are collaborating with another unit, so I cannot reveal anything before everything is confirmed. As this is a sequel, Vincent Wong, Sisley Choi, and the other main cast members will be returning.”
As for Kelly Cheung replacing Ali Lee’s character, Lam Chi Wah expressed, “Kelly plays a new character in the series. She is not replacing Ali.” When asked if Ali Lee will be returning, he responded, “Don’t know yet. The company needs to answer that.” Ali Lee had actually revealed last year that she would be filming “Legal Mavericks 2” this year, it’s uncertain if she was removed once again due to her being frozen by TVB over her social media posts scandal.
Tracy Chu, who died in the first series, spoke to hk01.com on her return and said, “Don’t know yet, because I already died in the series, so I haven’t received any plans.” She also said she is busy lately so she will wait for the notice.
