Kenneth falling for Tavia will be interesting as they are both leads of the series, they should have more screentimes.

Damian has five wives: Mary Hon (1st), Idy Chan (2nd), Elena Kong (3rd), Tavia Yeung (4th) and JJ Jia (5th).

Mary Hon has confirmed this and it is said that the main focused character is Tavia in this series...

Ron Ng confirmed that "Prominent Family" will be filmed in early December. So this means the official costume fitting will be around mid or end of November 2011.

Due to health reason, Fala Chen will not film "Prominent Family". Someone will replace her role, confirmed only after the anniversary gala.

Because Fala is already going to film Triumph in the Skies II, I think it's a good thing that she won't be filming this series. I don't think she's a strong actress, especially not strong enough to lead grand productions.

That is not why Fala is not filming Prominent Family. Fala is currently ill; there are issues with her trigeminal nerve. So, Fala will leave after the awards ceremony and come back in May to film TITS2.

That's only if Tavia replaces Fala, but Tavia is already part of the cast.

The producer confirmed that Rebecca Zhu will replace Fala in PF (First, it was Laughing's movie. Now, PF. TVB tend to cast Rebecca as a replacement for Fala.)

Spoiler


[Ming Pao: Rebecca Zhu replace Fala Chen to film new series] Fala Chen faced health problem on her facial nerves. Unfortunately, she rejected filming grand production, "Prominent Family". Her role will be replaced by this year's Miss HK Champion, Rebecca Zhu". Tommy Leung said, "Although Rebecca is a newcomer, her acting looks comfortable. "Is she looking similar to Fala Chen?" He replied, "A little! But the main reason is that her temperament suits the series." Rebecca said, "I had met Tavia Yeung. We had a discussion before".

Rebecca Zhu Fills in for Fala Chen in New Series
Friday November 25, 2011 Hong Kong
Credits: to hyn5 @ http://hyn5-hyn5.blogspot.com/

Posted Image

Problems have arisen in Fala Chen's facial nerves; for fear of serious facial paralysis, [she] will be returning to the US in early December to rest for a month, helplessly pulling out of the grand production "Prominent Family". TVB anxiously looked for another candidate. It has been said that this role has already been confirmed to be filled in by this year's Miss Hong Kong winner, Rebecca Zhu. Director of Production Tommy Leung admitted: "Although Rebecca Zhu is a newcomer, her acting is quite comfortable. (Is it related to her resemblance to Fala?) A little bit! But mostly because her air is very suitable. This series is about the '20s and '30s".

Rebecca can be considered the representative Miss Hong Kong for the past few years. After gaining the crown, [she] has already been in a movie, and now [she] also has an opportunity to be one of the female leads, battling in acting with Tavia Yeung, so absolutely do not mind being 'second choice'. "The company has given me this good opportunity; I am very grateful and happy. I will work hard and appreciate it. As a newcomer, there is definitely pressure, but just met with Tavia; we chatted. She is a very good person...believe that, with her carrying me, it should be okay".

Caption 1: The grand production "Prominent Family" is a 40-episode long series. Because of health problems, Fala has lost out on a role that has much to do; she also feels helpless.

Caption 2: Rebecca is the representative Miss Hong Kong for the past few years. After gaining the crown, work has come one after the other. Entering the industry for four months, [she] has already had opportunities to film a movie and a series...heavily promoted by the company.

I think people should cut Rebecca some slack. We haven't even seen her act yet and people are already assuming she is bad. TVB is known for promoting Miss HKs and Miss International rapidly, so it is not like Rebecca is the first one.
But the difference is she has at least gotten some kind of training before this, as she went to an art/performing school at the age of 16. So I don't see why she doesn't deserve a chance to act in this series, when others who didn't even get basic training landed on big roles already from the beginning.
Besides, TVB is in short of below 30s first-line fa dans, the only one they have is Linda Chung and Fala Chen so I think it is reasonable that they are trying to recruit and promote the younger fa dans to the first line.

We have not seen Rebecca act yet. Maybe she's a natural talent in acting? Lets watch first before getting disappointed. Tiffany Lam's acting was quite natural in her first acting foray in 'Not Just a Pretty Face'.

Generalising and assuming its all Tavia fans?


Main reason why people making comment on Rebecca being casted into a major production is because she's taking over Fala's spot, who is now one the top fadans.

Alot artist work their way to top to get main roles like this but never get the chance. Its like she only recently won miss HK and already been casted as one the main actresses.

Look at all the list of "supporting" actors and actresses how long they have been in acting industry to be only having a "supporting" role and never main. ie. Nancy & sharon.

They could have even pushed JJ to Fala's character then Rebecca to JJ's, as JJ has more acting experience.. but thats TVB for you (Y) promoting Miss HK's

For all you know,Rebecca may be talented. All I can say is to reserve judgement until you watch her act. And about getting chances, why don't you look at the movie leading actresses. People like Stephen Chow cast new faces as his leading actresses all the time. If someone has charisma and screen presence, why not? Besides, just because she's taking on fala's character, doesn't necessarily means she will have the SAME screen time as Fala will have. They may have cut her role to something more suitable of her status? Anyway, Fala's role is not even main lead or even 2nd lead, she will have been supporting at best with Idy and Tavia here.

Besides don't you think Fala is the same way ? Fala has been getting prominent roles early in her career. But you yourself said "Fala is now one of the top Fadans". If Fala was never given chances in good roles, do you think she will be at the position she is? No doubt, fala still have tons to improve like all the current fadans, but her charisma and likability is undeniable. lIkewise, Linda is the same way.

I'm not saying that Rebecca will be good, but at least give her the chance. If she turns out bad, I'll bash her like the way i bash aimee chan, but right now, I'll wait and see.

Here is my fair thoughts on Rebecca......

1st of all it's not her fault that Fala drop out
2nd of all it's not her fault that she got casted to replace fala

I know everyone complaining how she's new and unfair to others actresses, but think about it rebecca is not the one to blame because she have no control over being promoted by TVB. Its TVB decision to promote whoever they wants and more will be coming.....

I won't judge rebecca just yet because i haven't seen her acting.... but by the look of it TVB will promote her heavily once she pass on her crown.... But thank god at least Rebecca is quite pretty... I think people should give her a chance before jumping to conclusion saying this and that......

To be honest i am quite anxious to see how her acting skills was cause i know that we're going to see her in alot of series in the future, so fingers cross.....and goodluck to her!!!!!
