Wayne Lai accepted an interview on Timothy Cheng's RTHK radio program. He expressed he has confidence on his upcoming new series The Confidant and reveals TVB is making it a grand occasion. On October 31st, The Confidant premiere will be held at Elements HK Shopping Mall, where the first episode will be shown in advance. Recently Damian Lau has been very well-received by the audience for his performance in Silver Spoon Sterling Shackles, Wayne said: "Yes! I have also noticed that glamorous dancing scene of his." Wayne thinks it is a good thing that both anniversary series get good feedback. If he could defeat a strong opponent, then he'll be even happier.
Silver Spoon is doing well in the TV ratings, but Wayne believed The Confidant will also match the ratings. A magazine reported, in this series he's going to be a 'dog' again? Wayne clarified: "I'm not a dog. In the series, I start off as an eunuch and climb up from there. When I first entered the palace, I was bullied, which is similar to Chai Gau (Rosy Business) because he starts from the bottom and then works his way up to success." He joked and said The Confidant certainly doesn't have a "strong aftertaste" as Silver Spoon because there won't be any glamorous dancing scenes, but he does have a bed scene with Nancy Wu.
Would he want a sequel if there are high ratings? Wayne said: "Yes, because we didn't touch on Lee Lin Ying's later years in the series. If we have support from the audience, I hope to shoot a sequel and tell a story about Lee Lin Ying's later years where there is some violation between him and Empress Dowager, there will be great changes then." Reporter suggested he could depend on this sequel to fight for the TV King title next year? Wayne laughed: "Again? That's enough! It's hard to survive in TVB if get the award too many times, I will get kicked out the door!"
