Yesterday new series Cousin, You Are Good costume fitting was held at TVB City. Joey Meng joins TVB as the lead actress of this series; This is the first TV series for Ivana Wong, Louis Cheung and Bob Lam; Wong Kwong Leung makes his comeback as Wong Cho Lam's father; Roger Kwok and Wong Cho Lam are the lead actors. Joey describes the atmosphere at TVB feeling like an elite school, so big and pretty. She often gets lost around the company, but she doesn't dare to trouble her partner Roger. She said: "Roger and I both have families, so to avoid any unnecessary gossips, I just ask Law Lan Jeh for help whenever I get lost." The two leads mutually impressed each other. Joey expressed she watched Queens of Diamonds and Hearts, while Roger said: "I also watched My Date with a Vampire!"
Joey was asked if she feels lucky to be able to jump from ATV to TVB and still be a lead actress? Roger, standing besides her, praised she has the ability, but Joey promptly said she must not be compared to Alice Chan. TVB produces many series and programs, they both have different directions. It was said TVB is currently lacking FaDans, so she's just here for the 'repair'? Joey laughed: "That's good!"
Ivana plays Roger's younger sister, and it is also her first TV series, Roger said: "Collaborating with newcomers, must try to fit in mutually. In this series, even the director is new." Ivana was frightened for several months when she first learned she's going to be in this new series, and had to ask Wong Cho Lam to be her psychologist. She'll be pairing up with Louis Cheung, but there aren't any kiss scenes. They both hope to portray their roles more realistically, and may request for a kiss scene.
The "father and son" Wong Kwong Leung and Wong Cho Lam "meets" and look very much like an actual father and son. Cho Lam praises that Leung is handsome, and the area that they look most alike is their noses. However, Leung thought Cho Lam was too short and asked if he had gone through puberty yet? It has been many years since Leung been in a TVB series, he joked: "I came back because I have no food to eat, there is food here at TVB, I don't have to worry about any of my three daily meals."
