Rumoured with TVB majority shareholder, Charles Chan (陳國強), tabloids claimed that Samantha Ko (高海寧) was groomed overnight by TVB and was featured prominently in many series this year.
The 25-year-old actress reportedly filmed 5 series this year and is comparable to the number of series filmed by the A-list actresses, Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣).
Samantha was cast in famed producer Lee Tim Shing’s (李添勝) The Last Steep Ascent and starred alongside with Moses Chan (陳豪) and Maggie Cheung (張可頤). Samantha was also being featured in TVB calender and photographed along with rising actresses, Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Eliza Sam (岑麗香) and Sire Ma (馬賽).
On the other hand, Kate Tsui (徐子珊) who was once rumoured with Charles Chan only has one series, Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒> this year. Samantha is reported to have replaced Kate in the TV station. Having a voluptuous figure, rumours have it that the production crew had addressed Samantha as the “lady boss” privately.

Samantha broke down in tears
Together with TVB Deputy Director of External Affairs, Tsang Sing Ming (曾醒明), Samantha dismissed the rumours. Although this is not the first facing scandalous reports, Samantha is still deeply affected by it.
Said Samantha, “I know that the reported party is my boss, but we have not even contact before. The reports have also affected my parents and caused them to worry. The rumour is making everyone unhappy”.
Responding to being addressed as “lady boss” within TVB, Samantha broke down in tears. “I feel so shocked and unjust. I do not know how to explain and feel so helpless,” said Samantha.
Samantha also said that although Kate was implicated into the report, she had even turned around to console her.
