[Translated by Jaynestars.com] It has been 14 years since Idy Chan Yuk Lin last filmed a television series. Apparently, due to TVB’s persuasion, Idy will be returning to the small screen once again!
Idy will be filming a series with Damian Lau Chung Yan, Joe Ma Tak Chung, and Fala Chen. Entitled, “Thieves With Principles (lit.) 盜亦有道”, the series will film in October.
Idy commented, “Both TVB and ATV have been actively recruiting me to film for them. The details are not finalized yet! I will be leaving Hong Kong shortly. It really depends on how the schedule works out!”
However, TVB executive, Virginia Lok Yi Ling said, “We’ve very happy that Idy agreed to film for us!” (Did TVB offer Idy a hefty fee?) “No, Idy was unconcerned about the money. The more important thing was the schedule.”
Producer Chong Wai Kin revealed that Idy’s character will be a divorcee who falls in love with thief, Damian.
[I’m SO looking forward to this. I’ll continue to follow any future Idy’s news obsessively! HAHA! I’m neutral towards Damian, but I guess he’s one of the few veterans at TVB & matchable with Idy. Eye candy Joe Ma is a GREAT bonus. I yet haven’t seen any Fala Chen’s works, but I hope her character will be likable. I’m TOTALLY biased]
