18 Mar – Although she decided to replace Jacqueline Wong with Roxanne Tong in her drama, "Forensic Heroes IV" following the former's previous scandal last year, it doesn't mean producer Mui Siu Ching thinks that Jacqueline's career should be over.

As reported on Mingpao, the TVB producer who sat down for an interview on an RTHK show recently, stated that she really believed in Jacqueline's talent when she cast her in the said series earlier, having seen the actress' performance in her other drama, "Deep in the Realm of Conscience".

""She was sweet and not pretentious [in the previous drama]. I wanted her early on for "Forensic Heroes IV". She read the script well and understood what we wanted. It's a pity that the scandal happened. I was very surprised and heartbroken by it," she said.

However, Mui believed that Jacqueline must have already learned her lesson and that she should be able to try again.

"She is a very promising actress. People say that there is take two in life. She is still young. People should give her another chance," she added.

As for Roxanne, Mui said that there should be no comparison between the two of them, as they both have their own strengths and weaknesses.

"But she was able to fulfil the role within a few days of joining the team, so I was really satisfied," she added.
