After the success of 2017’s “My Unfair Lady” (不懂撒嬌的女人), popular on screen couple, Vincent Wong (王浩信) and Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) reunite as a couple in the new series, “The Man Who Kills Troubles” (解決師). It will be airing after “Barrack O’Karma” ends on October 14 and is promoted as one of the TVB anniversary series.
The cast attended a promotional event today to promote the series. On working with Vincent Wong again after “My Unfair Lady”, Natalie Tong expressed, “Working with Vincent after a few years, there has been a lot of changes. Because in the beginning of the series, we hate each other so I told him, ‘Let’s not talk to each other.’ Once I got to the film set, I didn’t speak to him at all or pay any attention to him.” Then Vincent Wong asked, “Not going to talk at all?”, Natalie Tong says, “Yes, we’re not even close!”.
Even though Natalie Tong plays a couple with Vincent Wong, she revealed the two actually don’t have much intimate scenes. She revealed, “Is it hard to imagine? It’s because our relationship is very complicated. It doesn’t allow us to be intimate. It was very hard for us to be together. I play a reserved music teacher with a triad background.”
When asking Vincent Wong if he’s prepared to get a Best Actor award again, he said, “I didn’t think about it too much. If the audience supports it, it’s already good enough.” On whether he feels the pressure of his series airing after “Barrack O’Karma”, Vincent Wong expressed, “Give us their momentum. I hope the audience will support us.” As the new series talks about the police, when asked if he was worried about it not being suitable to air with the current events, Vincent Wong explained, “This series has a lot of elements to it. I play two characters, a teacher and a solver. In Australia, we filmed about the darker side of things. I take orders from a triad boss and execute it.” He also expressed he’ll do his best as an actor and leave the rest up to the company to handle.
Kelly Cheung (張曦雯) plays Vincent Wong’s girlfriend, but only appears in flashbacks. She revealed, “I only have scenes with Vincent Wong.” On whether they have intimate scenes together, she revealed, “We have a make out scene on the streets. Actually, I had a kiss scene with Joe Ma (馬德鐘) in “Life on the Line” (跳躍生命線), but it was cut out. So this is actually my first on screen kiss that will air. It was very romantic.”
