Finally, the replacement for Charmaine was revealled and it turns out to be Maggie Cheung. Maggie tried out costumes and even had a new hairstyle for her new role. "Actually my hair could be shorter, but didn't want to go too far," explained Maggie.

Producer Miu is full of praise for Maggie's professionalism, "Maggie is really good, we are so rushed and she's still willing to help out, so professional!" However, Maggie was very humble and expressed her surprise at being asked to be part of the series. "I know they were in a huge rush. I'm also very familiar with Siu Ching and under this coincidental opportunity I accepted this series," Maggie explained. She also noted that [FH3] is her most rushed and most exciting series yet.
