Tavia Yeung Refuses to Renew TVB Contract; May Set up Own Company
TVB may be about to lose another big star as Tavia Yeung is rumored to be bolting from the station. The Hong Kong station is one among several that have been experiencing a mass flight of stars who are opting to move to Mainland China for better contracts.
Right now, TVB is banking on Miss Hong Kong winners for a steady supply of new talents, perhaps another reason that 36-year old Yeung decided to leave her home network.

Together with Linda Chung, Tavia is the only remaining big actress from the Four Fadans after Myolie Wu and Kate Tsui left.
It is also believed that Tavia will set up her own entertainment company in Mainland China, partnering with Moses Chan, after the nonstop promotion of newer actresses like Grace Chan seemingly hurt the actress.
Tavia's contract will expire in 2016, but TVB managers already started negotiating with the seasoned actress to keep her from leaving. However, Tavia didn't seem keen on staying with the network.
Tavia was a no-show at the 2015 TVB Anniversary Gala. Her last TV appearance was in Last Imperial Physician, in which she co-starred with Roger Kwok in July. TVB then "froze" her for four months due to issues with her contract.
Freed from her contract, Tavia was seen having a good time as she went shopping at a local mall.
Tavia starred in three TV series in 2015, Eye in the Sky, Wudang Rules, and Momentary Lapse of Reason, but she seemed ready to bow out of the TV Queen race when she did not attend the TVB Anniversary Gala this year.
