this series is a remake of an old classic series that contains Louise Lee and it has three different stories in one series.

Oh noooooooooooooo not Bosco and Eliza again, I so want to watch a BoTa series!!


Yea but they are only in one story (5 episodes). Indeed, it's been a long time since Bosco and Tavia collaborated ... But no chance this time since Tavia will be filming another series around this month which will be produced by Lee Tim Shing.

Interesting, KUANGAI says there'll be another 2 first-line actress who will be the other two leads, I really do wonder who are the other 2 and the other 2 male leads though

since tsd90 mention there will be other 2 first line actresses. Here are the possible ones from the Tsang, co-tsang side

possible candidates
Ada Choi - possible.
Maggie Siu - possible.
Myolie Wu - possible. She don't have any jobs right now.
Kristal Tin - possible, she don't have any jobs right now after filming Semi evil Man.
Selena Li - possible, around that time, she should have completed the Singapore English drama. .

Awaiting confirmation
Linda Chung - Possible if she is not taking The Apostle, and that's if Charmaine Sheh recovers in time.
Mandy Wong - she will finish filming Housewife Madam around that time too. But maybe she will take a break.
Priscilla Wong - she will finish filming Housewife Madam around that time too. But maybe she will take a break.
Nancy Wu - She is taking a break

Out for sure
Tavia Yeung - Not possible. She will film for Lee Tim Shing during that time.
Kate Tsui - Not possible. She will be filming Battles Tomorrow during that time.
Sharon Chan - she will film The Apostle around that time.

Hint: One of the male lead is already married in real life, the other female lead is from beauty pageant last time.

the female one, I can only think of Selena, Linda, Myolie, Mandy

should be either of those four. Male one, Wayne Lai? Roger Kwok? Raymond Wong...?

Not super interested in any of the pairings, but it's been a while since we've had a spirit/magical-type of TVB drama so I'm interested in watching this.

TVB Remake of "Double Fantasies" Costume Fitting
Monday January 6, 2014 Hong Kong
Source: Mingpao
Translated by: aZnangel @ http://asianuniverse.net


Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image


Posted Image
(Louise Lee's 1981 version of Double Fantasies, still a classic today)


Yesterday Wayne Lai, Sonija Kwok, Bosco Wong, Eliza Sam and Kristal Tin attended the costume fitting for TVB new series Double Fantasies. Most of the cast has to play several different roles, while Bosco has it the easiest, he doesn't have to change costumes/makeup throughout the series. In the series, Bosco and Eliza are a pair once again. He said: "The story is about Eliza as the rich girl 'Lei Yu Ching' pursuing me, the poor scholar. We later get married after getting pregnant. (Fear there might be rumors again?) Nope. Please help out and don't write anything about us. She's a little girl. (You're the big brother looking after her?) Perhaps she looks after me." Will the two spark love after filming series together? Bosco joked they will first have sparks as on-screen partners and disclosed Eliza is worried about her ancient Chinese lines since she's not very good with Cantonese. "I told her to treat me more meals and I can teach her. Sometimes we joke around, but she doesn't understand." He expressed he will spend some time to help Eliza with the script, but warned everyone that if they spot them chatting later, it is because their studying the script and not because their dating. Is Bosco really afraid of rumors then? He smiled helplessly: "Frequently telling me to meet a girlfriend, then don't just push so many rumors on me. Give me some space, otherwise I really won't get a girlfriend. All I see lately are oysters, really not good."

Wayne appeared with a big belly, he explained because his character misunderstands that he has the ability to hatch eggs. In the series, Wayne and Sonija are a married couple, but because they've been married for too many years, it feels boring, so they wanted to do something interesting. The story reflects the relationship of modern married couples. "When we first meet, of course its good, but after years of being together, its a different story." Asked whether he's like that in real life? Wayne admitted: "I'm boring. All I do is go to work, and then go home. Also, I like to be at home. There is nothing that could happen. I have no interests. Sometimes I rather enjoy family time." Wayne expressed he likes to keep his life and the entertainment circle separate. He envies Chow Yun Fat's life because although he's an international superstar, he still can live life like a normal person. Wayne's goal is to live like Chow Yun Fat.

Its been a while since Sonija's been in a TVB series. In the series, she plays two characters -- as Wayne's wife and a prostitute. She expressed the advantage of staying in HK to film series is she can be at home to see her daughter. Sonija's daughter is 9 months old and is starting to get too attached. She disclosed lately she's been looking for a school for her daughter. She laughed and said she's absolutely isn't a strict mother: "I just do what an average parent would do. I applied to several schools for her, even well-known schools, but because I didn't have the time I couldn't go with her to two of the interviews. She's in pre-school now, which will really help her when she goes to kindergarten. My husband is responsible for playing and spoiling her."

^ I have to agree that it's kind of shocking how different Kristal can look, depending on her makeup and hair. And she does look different in long and short hair.

Totally agree, Kristal can look really different in both long and short hair. Although I feel she looks so much younger and pretty in long hair, she seems to prefer short hair in real life. I feel TVB should give her more roles with long hair since girls can just wear a wig.

This role seems really challenging with Kristal performing multiple roles and reincarnation.

I'm really excited for Kristal x Raymond Wong collaboration both are my favories as well besides Ruco Chan! They will be the only reason why I watch this!

My thoughts exactly, it's about time they release another serious fantasy/magical ancient drama. This reminds me of Dark Tales 1 & 2 since I'm think there are multiple stories. This is a remake of a classic so the script should be top-notch. Kristal said during interview that it will take at least 1 and half years just to complete the post production CG effects. Well hopefully the CG will be better than the usual fake effects by TVB.

THIS. I thought I heard wrong when I first heard this. I'm not a fan of special effects at all (not the really crappy tv ones, and not the really high end ones either just cause they don't impress me). I have to say that everyone involved has to ardently hope that no one leaves tvb during this period, if not the show might be the victim of really "creative" post production "censorship" exercises. (I'm thinking Ruse of Engagement, I guess). I think I just need the special effects to be serviceable, whatever that means.

On another note, I actually really like Kristal with short hair, even though I agree she looks younger and prettier with long hair. I think it gives her character.

I'm looking forward to watching Joyce Koi, it's been a long long time since I last saw her (then again, it may be my drama diet rather than how often she acts. But I happen to think it's the latter). And Raymond Wong. I have just (belatedly) realised that this drama has a huge cast. Again, I guess it's good and bad, because I normally don't like huge productions... But we'll see.

I'm looking forward to this one simply because it's been so long since we've had a good Chinese mythology/spiritual drama. Hopefully TVB will continue to make these in the future.
