  1. There was also Melissa Ng from Into Thin Air. (long long long time ago)

  4. I love the idea of seeing twins but most storyline doesn't quite live up to the idea. I remember the series, 'United we stand' with Barbara Yung (?, don't remember the spelling) and I remember it was fun. all these roles you've listed seems to be serious character roles, I would definitely like to see a fun twin series.

    have a great day.
