Sammul Chan Replaced by Raymond Lam in “Triumph in the Skies” Sequel

Sammul Chan ended his long-time employment at TVB and decided to focus his career in China instead. Sammul criticized TVB for compensating its artists poorly, citing its tendency to even bargain for $10 (HKD). Of course, TVB was unwilling to let one person sully its reputation and would retaliate! Since the successful broadcast of Triumph In The Skies "衝上雲霄" in 2003, TVB had wanted to film a sequel. Allegedly, TVB will film the Triumph in the Skies sequel at the end of the year, starring three members of the original S4 cast: Ron Ng, Bosco Wong, and Kenneth Ma. However, Sammul was ousted from the series and Raymond Lam will join the cast instead!

Adding in New Blood; Money Is No Problem

TVB regards the Triumph in the Skies sequel as an important drama for next year. TVB will film both a series sequel and a movie to boost the popularity of the Triumph in the Skies franchise. Aside from boosting its male lead cast, additional artists, such as Mag Lam and Cilla Lok will be added to the series. As for Francis Ng’s pilot character, TVB was considering seeking outside assistance. Not sparing production expenses, filming locations will include Europe and Southeast Asia.

Sammul’s manager was agitated in responding to news that he was ousted from the Triumph in the Skies sequel, “We no longer have a partnership with TVB. We decided to leave the company. When he still had a contract with TVB, Sammul had to film whatever role was offered to him. There’s no need to ask him to film the sequel now.” (Did TVB contact Sammul?) “Why would they contact us? Sammul still has three series to film. He has no spare time.”

No way? I can't believe they want to film TITS 2 without the original cast and now depending on Raymonds popularity they wanna add him to the cast as well. TITS did have an all star cast and I liked how the director took the risk to add S4 who were all relatively new to acting but I loved Francis, Flora and Joe Ma in the first one because their on screen chemistry was fab. And also I enjoyed watching the love triangle with Sammul, Michelle and Ron which kept us glued to the screen and not forgetting the comedy couple of Louisa and the guy who played Myolie's cousin were so funny to watch. I know in TVB there is way too much politics being played that's why more and more actors/actress are leaving them because they are all not treated fairly...just look at Sammul and Joe Ma. Very Happy
