Myolie Wu, Raymond Lam To Replace Tavia Yeung & Julian Cheung In Modern Dynasty Sequel
With its stellar cast and engaging storyline, Modern Dynasty was one of the most well-received Hong Kong dramas of 2022.
The show starred Tavia Yeung, 43, Julian Cheung, 51, Raymond Wong, 47, and Him Law, 38.
Last year, Modern Dynasty's producer Tommy Leung revealed that he plans to make a sequel with the same cast. He also shared that the second season will have a completely different storyline and will not be a continuation of the first season.
Now, we've some good news for fans of Modern Dynasty. The second instalment, which will be titled Jia Zu Ji Cheng Zhe (or Family Heir in English), is slated to start filming in May.
However, fans of Tavia and Julian will be disappointed to know that the two stars will not be part of the sequel. In their place are former TVB stars Myolie Wu, 43, and actor Raymond Lam, 43.
Previously, apart from confirming that Raymond will be the new male lead, Tommy did not reveal much about the cast of Season 2. He also added that Him will play a villain role this time round.
It looks like things are pretty much set in stone now.
Recently, Tommy shared a picture of him with the Modern Dynasty crew and cast, including Him, Raymond Wong and Toby Leung.
In the pic too were Raymond Lam and Myolie, which was what started the speculation that Myolie is the new female lead.
It was later explained that Tavia and Julian could not be in the sequel as they have other work commitments.
According to reports, some scenes will be shot in Malaysia.
TVB actress Kelly Cheung, who previously said that she'll be heading to Malaysia to film a drama in May, is rumoured to be part of the drama too.
