  • Woah Sammy, quite an accusation against him. I wondered if his aunt even got paid helping him pave the road. If not, what an ingrate!
  • Wow, poor Linda. The life of a TVB artiste is not all that it's cracked up to be. Plenty of men and women would probably leave behind all that glitz and glamour if they can afford to.
  • @lyu310 I remember the Super Trio show! It lasted for awhile. @llwy12 The Yang's Saga is a classic! TVB put in work back then producing quality telemovies. Now...I don't even know.
  • @lyu310 Yea, I agree…I actually love all of the Telling Maria episodes so far except for the Ada and Moses one, which I actually didn’t watch (since I don’t really care for either artist or any of the series they collaborated in). I enjoyed the Eric/Lawrence/Nat episode as well and was nearly in tears when they started talking about Lydia Shum. I think the funniest episode so far was the FOJ one (Bobby/Michael/William) and the most profound one was Wayne/Sheren episode. If you haven’t watched the 3 Tigers one, definitely try to get to it soon – it was awesome! Most of the stuff they talked about I already knew from past interviews, but it was still a lot of fun seeing the 3 of them being interviewed together – especially Michael and Felix (a “bromance” that I’ve shipped since the 80s, lol), whom we don’t get much opportunity to see together nowadays on television (though thank goodness they still collaborate quite frequently in movies). They talked about their days in Acting Class, which was hilarious -- Kent always choosing to sit in the back so he could sleep and also study his horse racing guide, Felix getting in trouble with his teachers because he was courting his future wife at the time and got called out on it, both Felix and Michael arriving to class in short shorts due to having just finished a game of soccer and their teacher yelling at them for wearing stuff like that. Also all the memories of them fighting for “sleeping space” in the bathrooms and closets at TVB studios (back when the studio was located on Broadcast Drive in the 80s.... Bobby Au Yeung had actually talked about the same thing on his episode)…memories of filming The Bund together with Chow Yun Fat (Kent was already in a supporting role while both Michael and Felix were still newbies playing kelefes) and how scared they were because Fat Gor was already a huge star but also how much they learned from him. Also Felix recounting his time filming The Lonely Hunter (the series that first put his name on the map) with Dodo Cheng and how she threw his script away the first day and after that he never walked into the studio again without having his lines fully memorized. I also loved the part where they talked about all the other senior artists they had collaborated with (i.e. Kwan Hoi San, Tang Bik Wan, Wong Sun, all of whom left us many years ago, plus other seniors still active today such as Lau Dan, Chun Wong, Kenneth Tsang, etc) and all the things they learned from them and also how grateful they are to have had the chance to work with those artists because they wouldn’t be who they are today without them (so true…and therein lies the difference with why current generation of artists aren’t as successful – many of them don’t show the same appreciation and respect for the senior artists that the older generation did). It was funny when they made Felix recount the TVB series he had filmed and he only counted a handful because there were too many to remember, lol (he actually forgot to mention one of his most popular series, Solider of Fortune, until Kent reminded him, since that series was one of Kent's most representative works, lol). The most poignant moment of course was when they talked about Barbara Yung – their memories of her and their reactions to her death 32 years ago….Kent actually handled the questions pretty well considering he was the one most impacted. I miss the old days too (ok, technically I’ve been “missing the old days” for the past 20 years already, lol). Yea, I agree that it’s probably both nostalgia and the fact that the artists and the series were so much better back then – on a larger scale though, it was also because that time period (80s/early 90s) was truly the HK entertainment industry’s “glory days” where all disciplines (television, movies, music, etc.) were strong. Michael and Felix joked about how the 5 Tigers dominated TVB in the 1980s pretty much (which is true of course) but the industry was also different back then in that the attitude was better and everyone was more united. They talked a lot about filming The Yang’s Saga and being able to bring all of TVB’s artists together to participate in a series for a common cause, something that will never happen in today’s TVB world. As I said before, the current generation artists really should watch these interviews, as they can learn so much from hearing all these veterans recount their experiences.
  • @llwy12 Speaking of Telling Maria, I also recently discovered it and watched the first 4 episodes in one go! I loved them all, especially the episodes with the MCs Lawrence, Eric, Nat (I watched Ms HK and Super Trio growing up), Ada and Moses, and the File of Justice trio (lovedd the series). It really takes me back; I really miss the old days. Not sure if it has to do with nostalgia or just the fact that the actors and dramas were just better back then. Probably both. Loved the friends who commented on the guests, and the old clips they showed, particularly the part where Eric Tsang talked about Fei Fei (rip).
  • @llwy12 Should have been Ada and Lawrence Ng lol I miss the FOJ group!
  • @linvin8 Ah, ok…makes sense! (I should've noticed the CRHK radio logo in the picture's background...which reminds me that I need to catch up on listening to radio interviews -- got a long list that I'm behind on). I actually would be surprised if TVB didn’t have them record an episode of Telling Maria as well…most likely they will but TVB won’t air it until closer to their series coming out…after all, TVB needs every bit of “free promo” they can get right now….
  • @llwy12 This specific interview was for Steven's radio talkshow (he's done several with guests such as Nancy Wu and Ms Lok). But yes, perhaps since Linda's in town for some time TVB might have done a Telling Maria episode.
  • My guess is that this is probably for one of the Telling Maria episodes (for the latest season of her interview show, she has been inviting “best on-screen partners” to discuss their collaborations). The latest episode that aired this past weekend (episode 5, which aired yesterday) featured 3 of the 5 Tigers (Michael Miu, Felix Wong, Kent Tong – technically 4 Tigers if you count Andy Lau’s multiple video clips, lol….I watched it last night and was in TVB 80s nostalgia heaven!) I’ve been “chasing” the show (pretty much the only TVB program I’m watching nowadays) since it started last month and so far, the partnerships they’ve had are truly classics (episode 1 was Wayne Lai and Sheren Tang, episode 2 was Eric Tsang, Lawrence Cheng, Nat Chan, episode 3 was Bobby AuYeung, Michael Tao, William So, episode 4 was Moses Chan and Ada Choi, and episode 5 was the 3 Tigers). Can’t wait to see who they will feature on the next episode! Of course I could be wrong and this might end up being for some random Big Big Channel thing (since TVB has been heavily promoting the channel recently) but it’s kind of hard for me to believe TVB won’t take advantage of the opportunity to have Steven and Linda do a longer interview. They actually did the same thing with Wayne and Sheren last month – they did a mini interview for Big Big Channel, then an extended version for the first episode of Telling Maria.
  • @lyu310 @khoobunny I saw the interview on YouTube. They were uploaded in several clips, here's one of them - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-ahxVthbQo&t=44s :)
  • Poor Vincent & Sisley. Those HK paps really don't leave you alone once you're in the spotlight. Let's just hope this won't affect Vincent & Yoyo's relationship. Besides, I think Yoyo is like a thousand times hotter than a lot of the young actresses in TVB nowadays. I don't think Vincent will be distracted by any of them when he has such a hot wife at home.
  • @khoobunny Same, would love to watch/hear this interview as well.
  • The tabloids really don't like Sisley, do they. It's like they target her whenever possible. Likewise with Vincent and Yoyo's marriage... As if they want to see it fail... so sad!
  • cheater or not, "i wouldnt do such things to hurt my image" when this is the first thing to come up in his mind to say then it tells me that he loves his image more than his wife.
  • @killer02 Status and power as well maybe? Without the motivation of earning even more money then there’s no real in life. Settling for life seems fun but only initially. It will get boring very quickly. People need targets in life whether it is work, money, power or status. A lot of celebrities we hear everyday already come from rich family backgrounds. They already have the money so they pursue fame.
  • Where can I hear/watch this interview? Love the both of them.
  • @jimmyszeto This is off topic, but sometimes it makes me wonder why the richest and famous people who are multi-millionaires and billionaires still want to pursue more money? Besides big house and luxury cars, how much money do they really spend on a daily basic? Isn't there a ceiling in which they can already have everything they've ever wanted/needed? Why there is never enough money for them to settle for life? If I had a million dollars, I would have retired already and settle for life.
