Scriptwriter, Ella Chan Bo Wah (陳寶華) makes her comeback to TVB lately and invites Miriam Yeung (楊千嬅) as the female lead in the new drama, Wonder Woman (多功能老婆) despite her last TVB series is around 10 years ago. Earlier, they announced it together during a press conference and Miriam remarked it was a miracle and destiny: “My last TVB series was A Taste of Love (美味情緣) with Raymond Lam (林峯) in 2001. Sandy Yu (余詠珊) approached my husband, Real Ting (丁子高) when I was holding the concert in last December and Ella wished to invite me to film the drama as the role character has a strong resemblance to me.”
On 29th March 2018, a magazine reported that the role character belonged to Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯) initially and she expressed she had reserved her schedule and waited for the script from Ella. However during the press conference on that day, Sheren was shocked that the female lead was not her and returned empty-handed eventually. Based on the news report, Real opened a manager company in 2017 and kept persuading Miriam to join him. Hence, she approached TVB and hoped to maintain a good working relationship. Ella believed it was fresh to collaborate with Miriam and the ratings record was a guarantee so Sheren lost a good opportunity as a result.
Subsequently, Sheren expressed her desire to speak the dialogue in Cantonese all along during an interview with a magazine. She had been liaising with TVB and waiting for the script since she had arranged her schedule. In addition, Sheren explained others believed she might return to film TVB series during last TVB Anniversary Awards and she followed their thoughts.
Real accepted an interview from Apple Daily (蘋果) on 29th March 2018: “It is a ridiculous report and the whole incident happened in last December. Sandy contacted me that Ella will be releasing a new series and we had dinner together. Although it was the first meeting, but everyone was interested and elated and we continued our discussion. The terms and conditions proposed from TVB was sincere and excellent and we decided to give it a try. It has been a long time since Miriam films series and I believe it is a breakthrough for her this time. The series title is Wonder Woman in English which conveys the same message as Miriam’s concert.” He added that everybody commented the role character had a strong resemblance to Miriam after releasing the story: “I do know Sheren and feel sorry for her although it is unrelated to me. It is odd to see this ridiculous report all of a sudden.”
