19 Mar – TVB producer Mui Siu Ching has dismissed the notion that she cast Shaun Tam in "Forensic Heroes IV" because he is the son of legendary actor Ti Lung.
As reported on Mingpao, the producer who went on an interview with RTHK recently, stressed that she is not closely acquainted with the veteran actor, adding that she cast Shaun because her team was impressed by his performance in the ancient drama, "Justice Pao: The First Year".
"Everybody proposed that we look for a seasoned actor, but I thought that we should take a chance and give it a try," she said.
Sure enough, said the producer, Shaun really lived up to expectation and immediately received positive reactions from the audience.
In a previous interview, Shaun admitted that he had his reservations about working in the drama.
"I was very thankful that she gave me this opportunity. But initially, there were voices in my head saying that I should not do it, this fear that I would taint her [perfect record]," he said.
