TVB and Wong Jing will be collaborating on remaking the classic series "The Shell Game" from 35 years ago, inviting 'Sei Gor' Patrick Tse, who played gambler Law Sei Hoi back then, to partner Charmaine Sheh, Kenneth Ma, etc. However, Wong Jing feels that pre-modern series are not as popular as back then, so it will be a modern series that is 30-plus episodes, with a theme on casino heroes. Filming begins in April, with location filming in Hong Kong and Shenzhen.
Extraordinary Health, Not Afraid of Staying Up All Night
Patrick has agreed to film. He said that the role is suitable, and he has free time. He said that "The Shell Game", this type of gambling series, he was the first one to film it, so finding him is 'finding the right person'. This time, his role is similar to Law Sei Hoi, being a gambler. He hopes that it comes out with a breakthrough, and he is not filming for the salary. The 79-year-old Patrick said that he is extremely healthy, and is not worried about staying up all night.
This time, in the new series, his partners are Charmaine, Monica Chan, and Kenneth. Does Patrick have an impression about them? "Charmaine has a lot of screen time in the series, but it does not matter whomever I collaborate with. Because I am an actor, the most important is that the outcome of the series is good".
Charmaine Sheh: "'Sei Gor' Would Not Slap Me, Right?!"
Charmaine looks forward to collaborating with Patrick, believing that she would benefit a great deal. Charmaine laughingly said, "I am guessing that he would not slap me, right?!" From what she knows, she has more scenes with Kenneth. Kenneth said that he only filmed a telemovie with Charmaine. Her acting is good, and there were a lot of sparks in their collaboration. Regarding having never collaborated with Patrick before, he is his mom's idol. His mom frequently praises Patrick as being cool and handsome. It is his honour to have an opportunity to collaborate with him this time.
Personal Note: Ma Ming was pulled out of a gambling series to film a different gambling series?
