Problems have arisen in Fala Chen's facial nerves; for fear of serious facial paralysis, [she] will be returning to the US in early December to rest for a month, helplessly pulling out of the grand production "Prominent Family". TVB anxiously looked for another candidate. It has been said that this role has already been confirmed to be filled in by this year's Miss Hong Kong winner, Rebecca Zhu. Director of Production Tommy Leung admitted: "Although Rebecca Zhu is a newcomer, her acting is quite comfortable. (Is it related to her resemblance to Fala?) A little bit! But mostly because her air is very suitable. This series is about the '20s and '30s".
Rebecca can be considered the representative Miss Hong Kong for the past few years. After gaining the crown, [she] has already been in a movie, and now [she] also has an opportunity to be one of the female leads, battling in acting with Tavia Yeung, so absolutely do not mind being the 'second choice'. "The company has given me this good opportunity; I am very grateful and happy. I will work hard and appreciate it. As a newcomer, there is definitely pressure, but just met with Tavia; we chatted. She is a very good person...believe that, with her carrying me, it should be okay".
