The return of the legendary character, Laughing!
The character 'Laughing Gor' in "E.U" (2009) is one of the most popular characters in TVB dramas. Not only it created a wave of following 'Laughing Gor,' it also brought fame to its performer Michael Tse. TVB even filmed a spin-off movie "Turning Point" just for the character and the movie was released the same year, rocking the summer box office.
Whether it sees the character still has potential, TVB to film a new drama "Lives of Omission" (<潛行狙擊>,) featuring 'Laughing' once again; but this time it would be 'Laughing Sir.' Actors from this upcoming drama attended to a costume fitting yesterday, including Michael, Fala Chen, Bosco Wong, and Kate Tsui. Michael disclosed 'Laughing' will return as a C.I.B. officer and develop a relationship with boss Fala, who actually plays his girlfriend in the 'Laughing' movie.
The death of 'Laughing' in "E.U." was huge when that episode was aired. Netizens were so upset that they even created Facebook groups to mourn their favorite character. Many of them even requested TVB to bring 'Laughing' back to life. This time playing 'Laughing' again, Michael expressed he doesn't know whether he has to "die" again.
"Unexpected events would happen in the drama. Only 6-7 episodes of scripts are finished. So far I don't know whether I need to die or not."
The other romance line is between Bosco and Kate. Bosco plays a cripple gangster who joined the gang for Kate. The two will have lots of intimate bed scenes. Bosco couldn't avoid being asked whether he is afraid Myolie Wu would be jealous, but he denied.
"Not afraid. It's just filming. I won't be embarrassed filming these scenes with Kate," he said. "I never see her as a girl."
