Margie Tsang and Kenneth Ma were found to be spending romantic dates with each other on several occasions last year, sparking off rumours of an ‘elder sister’ relationship. Although they have both denied this, the rumours have been brought back to the forefront with details of Margie’s comeback series with TVB.
New series "Curious Detective" will begin filming at the end of next month and will star Margie opposite Kenneth, Roger Kwok and Sonija Kwok. Margie will play Kenneth’s elder sister in the series and have plenty of scenes with him, but of course no romantic scenes.
Margie left TVB ten years ago and faded out of showbiz soon afterwards. Although there were rumours of a TVB comeback over the past few years, Margie has opted for mainland series instead or refused on the grounds of caring for her son. Margie admits that agreeing to the project this time was purely down to chance: "People tell me that I am still looking good and it is tempting to return. When producer Cheung Kin Man asked me to do this series, it all fell into place. Although I have not filmed series for so long, I am still quite nervous."
As for rumoured boyfriend Kenneth Ma, she smiles: "I did not know before I took on the project. (Do you mind?) Not at all, it is a good thing! I don’t know my way around the new TVB City at all, so at least there is someone I know to show me around for free!"
Kenneth is also happy to be working with Margie, but complains that they do not have enough scenes together: "I only found out she was in it after I looked at the cast list, they should give us more scenes together! I know her quite well so the more scenes the better! (Margie bumps into you as soon as she returns?) She is lucky! Originally I was not going do this series, but TVB arranged it and we do seem to have an affinity!"
Asked if he was worried about more rumours, Kenneth says he is not afraid: "I don’t feel we need to avoid it at all, even if we sit together it is a normal thing! We will just read it like gossip as long as it is not too damaging. Earlier I was the brunt of everyone’s ‘Miss Tsang’ jokes, but I am usually the joker, so I don’t mind the tables being turned."
