13 Jul – With his series, "Life After Death" nearing its end, Frankie Lam is finally saying farewell to TVB.
As reported on Mingpao, the actor who became the Vice President of Asian Television Limited (ATV) during the break between the filming of the TVB drama and the broadcast, thanked the company for years of cultivation, adding jokingly, "I hope that [TVB Deputy General Manager] Felix To won't refuse me entry when I return in the future."
Asked if this was his very last drama with the company, Frankie responded, "The future is unknown, but at this stage, this would be the last time I will set foot in TVB City."
As to whether he could "borrow" TVB actors to shoot ATV series, Frankie said that the two broadcasters are not direct competitors and that there is definitely room for cooperation.
"But we have to do things one at a time. ATV is expected to start producing programmes in the second half of the year. Variety shows are expected to start in August and September. I would rather focus on producing quality work rather than shoot ten sets of garbage," he said.
