New Series 《大太監》 "The Great Eunuch" Info

CREDIT IF REPOSTED


Temporary Chinese title: 《大太監》
Pinyin title: Daai Taai Gaam
Temporary English title: "The Great Eunuch"
Producer: Marco Law

- Filming will commence at the end of the year. In February, there will be location filming in Hengdian. There is said to be an investment of approximately 40 percent more than the budget and the resources of a typical series.
- Wayne Lai will play Li Lianying.
- Maggie Cheung will play Empress Dowager Cixi.
- Maggie Shiu will play Empress Dowager Ci'an.
- Ruco Chan and Raymond Wong will play eunuchs.

Personal Note: Not sure whether Maggie will actually film the series, since her contract with TVB will be ending at the end of the year, but guessing that she'll most likely take part, since Wayne said earlier that he would be collaborating with Maggie again soon.

Ruco and Raymond are playing eunuchs?! o_O

  1. OMGosh! What a waste having both Ruco and Raymond as eunuchs? Can't one of them be the king and another a general/official, or anything?

    Please change their roles.

  2. Haha, Ruco and Raymond Wong together again. They really do have fate. :P

    Love Maggie Cheung but cannot see her as Cixi. Michelle Yim totally fits the bill as Cixi, but alas that was just a sales presentation.

  3. Haha, we can safely guess no love stories among these cast members

  4. hmm I also think Michelle Yim fits the role better and her acting was already amazing in the sales clip! =/ oh well

    After Raymond Wong and Ruco being Eunuchs I'm surprised as well! but I for think it's alot more interesting this way! Just cause they're good looking doesn't mean they have to be a general or whatever. Plus the series is obviously focused on Eunuchs. Though I wonder if any one of them will be evil or be in competition with Wayne? I have a feeling TVB might add relationship for Raymond and Ruco showing the struggle they have to face.

  5. Since Raymond and Ruco are being Eunuchs I think the series might be about Eunuchs struggle in the palace. Maggie is quite young to be the empress

  6. wonder if tavia will be in this? or will she be filming prominent family?

  7. Actually, Maggie's age won't be a problem playing Cixi. If you guys remember, Susanna Au Yeung successfully played Cixi in ATV's The Rise and Fall of the Qing Dynasty in 1992, she was 44 years old at the time. Maggie Cheung is 42 now.

  8. Wow, Ruco and Raymond will be eunuchs? That will be interesting to see because they are both handsome actors! Haha! Will they be playing the same age as Wayne?

    I hope Maggie will confirm soon because it would be great to see Maggie and Maggie work together!

  9. That's awesome that TVB seems to be putting some more money into their series and is willing to film in location.

  10. Maggie Cheung's manager is good, ever since she started working with Siu Mei, she's doing movies, TV series, and gets offered good projects too. Even though Maggie is waiting for her manager to finalize the negotiation, it looks like she will stay with TVB and do the series since Maggie always talk about doing series with strong female characters.

    Siu Mei is also Aaron Kwok's long time manager.

  11. wow Siu Mei must be a great manager able to grab some good roles for Maggie! I remember before TVB didn't really treat her a well.

    Just the cast is already enough to make me watch especially with Raymond Wong and Ruco Chan! I hope the series will give them alot of screen then just focus on Wayne even though he's the main character.
