Last Friday (10/5), the TVB 45th Anniversary Lighting Ceremony was held. Most of the FaDans and Siu Sangs appeared to promote for the currently airing series The Last Steep Ascent, Highs and Lows and Come Home Love as well as the upcoming two anniversary series Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles (SSSS) and The Confidant. The lead actors from these series including Wayne Lai, Michelle Yim, Damien Lau and Tavia Yeung were arranged to stand in the front row. It was rumored, TVB has already decided internally to give the TV King award to Raymond Lam this year. The TV Queen race appears to be a battle between Tavia and Kate Tsui. At the ceremony, a preview of SSSS was shown, where Tavia (33 y/o), who plays the '4th Wife', had an intense lip-biting kiss scene with 63 y/o Damien Lau whose old enough to be her father!
Charmaine Sheh's gone and Myolie Wu got the award last year, it was said this year's TV Queen award will definitely land in Tavia's hands and that's why her series SSSS is scheduled to be an anniversary series. Basically the '4th Wife' role in SSSS was tailored for Tavia, and this series is just another version of those palace dramas that audience like to watch. In order to demonstrate Tavia's improvements on acting, TVB paired her up with veteran Damien Lau to help bring her into character.
However Tavia's 'car incident' with Him Law earlier damaged her image, therefore the result may change. According to an internal TVB employee, [he/she] reveals: "Although Miss Lok (Virgina) believes Tavia was drunk, but she and Him made the incident look so bad, so Virgina scolded her. Coincidentally Highs and Lows started airing around that time, many people praised Kate Tsui's good performance and her drug queen role has really made a breakthrough. So, [TVB] is considering to let Raymond Lam and Kate get the TV King and Queen awards together. However, we still have to wait for SSSS to come out first and see how audience react before a decision can be made."
