• Here's the interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwz9IfyVna8
  • Pinky has gone through a lot of hardships in her life. She was the target of a bullying group growing up, so she face constant bully, not only emotionally, but, physically. I've heard some of the interviews talking about the bully and it made me cringe. Then, when she came out to work, got raped. She has also gone broke once and the kind Angie Cheung lent her money. I was a fan of Pinky in her ATV days. I love her in the MDWAV series. So, I always took notice of her news when I saw it. She gave a telling interview not so long ago. I can't find the youtube link now. Lots of crap videos on youtube now that she has join TVB and HK media started to pay attention on her. I'll post it after I check my bookmark link.
  • Imho, Eric did have breakthrough performances. It's just that TVB failed to pick up the momentum when he started gaining audience notice and his fans increased. I've like him since 'Dicey Business' and it was also during that time that he has the highest profile because many of his series was aired at the same time. But, TVB never took the opportunity to promote him. The producer who made the most use of him is Lee Tim Shing. He always have meaty roles in Lee's series. I think Lee is not with TVB anymore. Signing per series contact is good. He has more freedom to do other things. He can branch out to theater and movies, and look for jobs in China to expand his career opportunities.
  • I'm very happy for Grace. Finally! I'm also happy that her first lead role is an Andy Chan's production. 'Karma Rider' is one of my favourite TVB series. His other series also maintain a certain standard. So, the quality of this new series will be decent too. I just hope it will be well accepted by audience for Grace's career's sake.
  • Very shocking news. I didn't even know she was sick. R.I.P Susanna Au Yeung. She was a great actress. Even in very old series/movies, when she was very young and when other actors' acting look staged/affected, she was very natural.
  • @kidd I think any exposure to Asian faces in movies is always better than no face, regardless of who's in it. It's true that homegrown actors need to be distributed more evenly, but first, greater acceptance of Asian faces has to be ingrained in Hollywood culture. A decade to two ago, Asian faces barely graced the screen. It wasn't until Asia became a greater economic powerhouse that Asian Americans gained a stronger foothold in Hollywood, mostly to entice higher viewership in Asia. Everything is related to the bottom-line.
  • @llwy12 I like 'Legendary Entertainment'. They produced a lot of fantasy themed movies, a genre I like. Didn't know they have recently been acquired by Wanda until you mentioned it here. The token asian thing is a bit cringe worthy, but, so far, the movies produced on 'Legendary Entertainment' are still entertaining. Warcraft and Kong are two movies that I'm looking forward to their sequels.
  • @coralie The foreign investors only push established Asian artists from outside US into Hollywood. The group who truly need the push, the Asian American actors, is still sadly left behind. I'd rather see Asian Americans like Lewis Tan (ok, I know he's actually British Asian) get more chances. The Asian actors who get roles in these China investors projects are those whose main market is in Asian countries, who already made a name for themselves and has nothing to lose if their didn't make it in Hollywood. They still get lots of project back home. But, the Asian American actors are based in US, they need these roles from US project. Unless they are willing uproot themselves from US and move to Asia like Donnie Yen, Daniel Wu, LeeHom Wang.
  • @kidd Yup, totally agree with your views. Tony might have a more boyish and easygoing reputation from his jokes and interviews but he is actually quite serious and thoughtful if you go through his social media feeds and watch his travel shows. Plus he was the one who actively pursued her from the start and she was the passive one who accepted and seemed to just settle and compromise. Their whole rship always felt really off to me, like they were only friends joking around rather than a couple in love.
  • I remember him most as East Heretic Wong Yeuk Si in 'Legend of the Condor Heroes 94'. I read many comments saying he didn't portray the role well. But, I think otherwise. I like his WYS and think he did role justice, and certainly a good casting choice for this character.
  • @kaykay408 I don't think anyone who can maneuver through North Korea and Middle East war zone is still a boy. Being easy going doesn't indicate immaturity either. I think Natalie was just not that into him. It's interesting how she chose a guy who looks like Amigo and also a great host like Amigo. Can her heart still be with Amigo?
  • @creditor Because he can’t act can’t host and can’t speak properly loser, he's a douchebag?
  • @funnlim, a very ordinary face that doesn’t spell STAR. And yet, man I love this guy Funny what you said about Kwan Gor's look. He is indeed not very handsome, but, I like him the first time I see him perform onstage in 'The Voice' competition, and prominent HK musician Anthony Lun also commented that he will have a lot of fans after seeing said first performance. I think he has the adorkability factor. The Kwan Gor nickname was given by the MCs (coincidentally one of them is Krystal Tin) as a way of teasing him, but, it stuck.
  • Michael Tse played Frost in the first movie way back in 1998. Now, he gets to play Wind. :) Frost was my favourite character in the movie back then. I like him more than the 2 protagonists.
  • @coralie Was Angie's name at the end of the article. The ones who truly didn't get mentioned at all in the article are Pinky Cheung and Akina Hong. I really like Pinky Cheung when she's in ATV. Hope to see her more in the future since she finally succeed in signing with TVB.
  • @llwy12 Candy did act in 2 ATV series after 'A Kindred Spirit'. One of then is 'Venture Against Time' which is a very good series (except for the unsatisfactory ending).
  • @kidd from my memory at least twice
  • @funnlim Has she worked with Ruco before? Chances seem slim since Ruco is now linked strongly to Nancy.
  • The press has been reporting negatively about this couple from day 1. The news is always about Tony being close to other women and Natalie feeling insecure. This is the image that the press has set for this couple. I will be surprised if the press report something positive about them. Anyway, I like this couple. Hope they can weather all the crap the press put on them and have a lasting relationship.
  • @itsmeg Oic. I thought you said both Rogue One and xXx are bad. My mistake. Well, there can be a lot of reasons why Donnie chose to be in xXx. Maybe he wanted to work with Vin Diesel, or maybe he likes xXx 1 and 2, or maybe the initial script they showed him is not that bad.
