TVB grand production Triumph in the Skies II (TITS2) is scheduled to start shooting in July. The 3 lead actors are Francis Ng, Chilam Cheung and Ron Ng. It was said rising Siu Sang Him Law joins the cast and takes on a significant role. Although Him is an artist under Filmko and not one of TVB’s ‘biological sons’, in the recent year, he's still heavily favored by the company and appears in one series after another.
Earlier Him was involved in the Lau Sing Ding's nude photo scandal. At first, Him lied and said he didn't know him, but it was later discovered that he actually met Lau a few years ago. Following last year’s incident where ex-girlfriend Theresa Fu exposed he was a four-timer and even beats her, Him’s damaged image deepens after this scandal. Fortunately his work at TVB was not affected and the company strongly supported him by casting him in several series post-scandal including Tiger Cubs, the just completed A Chip off the Old Block II, currently shooting Seasons of Love and will be joining the cast of TITS2, which starts in July. Also, it was said Him’s role is going to be quite significant. Nine years ago, aside from lead actors Francis Ng and Joe Ma, the S4 (Ron Ng, Bosco Wong, Kenneth Ma and Sammul Chan) gained much recognition and popularity and later went on developing a successful solo career. This time TVB arranges Him to be part of TITS2, the purpose is obviously to help him clean his public image. Him had always been seen as TVB's 'godson', and TITS2's producer Joe Chan admits Him is part of the cast. As to his role, it was will be announced later; Elena Kong is joins the cast as well.
Recently Ron Ng's fans were outraged by their idol's injustice, and attacked every discussion forum stating that TVB is demoting Ron. Producer Joe Chan is unsure of Ron's fans complaints, but he reassures fans, that Ron definitely has the leading role in TITS2 and takes up heavy screen time. He has not been demoted.
In regards to the Sales Presentation, where the initial TITS2 cast included Raymond Lam, Bosco Wong and Kate Tsui, the producer said the sales presentation casting is not official. Currently there are three lead actors Francis, Chilam and Ron; The lead actresses are Myolie Wu and Fala Chen. The cast is excellent.
