Ever since it was announced “Forensic Heroes IV” (法證先鋒IV) was reshooting the scenes with Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎), her replacement has been a topic of discussion. TVB finally announced today they are replacing Jacqueline Wong with her good friend, Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯). She was at TVB today to see producer, Miu Siu Ching (梅小青), and went for a costume fitting. Miu Siu Ching expressed this was a birthday present to Roxanne Tong, who just celebrated her 32nd birthday on May 6th. She also says, “I wanted her to promise me one thing. That is to lose 10 pounds before we start filming on June 1st. She was willing to do it.”
Roxanne Tong was asked if she was afraid of taking Jacqueline Wong’s “leftovers.” She replied, “I am not afraid. I will take all the opportunities the company gives me. Having a good role to act in is already a good thing. I won’t concern myself with these things.” When asked if she is stressing about losing the 10 pounds before filming starts in June, she responds,” There is no stress. My weight is always yoyo-ing. There are times where I am skinny and times where I am heavier. It’s okay to lose weight. I am thinking about controlling my diet, exercising, and getting massages. I can probably come out with a diet book in the future.”
Roxanne Tong also says she is now focused on watching the prior series for research. Most of her scenes will be filmed with Raymond Wong. This is their first collaboration together.
