Due to an arm injury, it's confirmed Charmaine Sheh won't star in upcoming TVB drama "Forensic Heroes 3."
The TVB actress has been filming in Mainland recently and was about to return to Hong Kong. When she was getting off a car at the airport, she slipped and her left arm elbow hit the ground first, which caused her joint to dislocate. She is expected to take several weeks off to treat her arm.
Charmaine talked about her current condition on the phone yesterday and sounded quite weak: "My leg started to numb, and doctors said nerves are being pressed. My hand hurts a lot. My waist can't stay in the same position for too long, so I didn't sleep well last night."
The 2006 TV Queen is disappointed that she couldn't collaborate with TV King Wayne Lai this time. She's upset that her accident affected the drama, which started filming already.
Producer of the drama Mui Siu Ching is in a rush to find someone equivalent to Charmaine. She stressed it's more important for the actress to be in good health.
"Even if she forces herself to work, her joint could be dislocated again easily. She might need to do physical therapy exercises after resting 6 weeks," she said.
Male lead of the drama Wayne was superstitious that he thought his bad luck might have ruined his chance to collaborate with Charmaine. As for who is his desired female lead replacement, he can't think of one yet.
"It's hard to say," he said. "But it's more important for her to be pretty, since I'm a handsome man in the drama."
In addition, it's said Maggie Cheung would take Charmaine's role.
