Bosco Wong’s New Foray into Film
Many Bosco fans were initially charmed by his first leading role in War of the In-Laws <我的野蠻奶奶>, where he played a rich kid turned hero, Ling Mao Chun (甯茂春). Even Carina Lau (劉嘉玲) said she was attracted to Bosco then.
Recently, during an interview with a magazine, Bosco spoke about his foray into films and his interests in sports and fashion.
Bosco will star in Paco Wong’s (黃柏高) new romantic comedy, Love In Time <等我愛你>, playing an ordinary grass roots guy. Love in Time is a love story where the ordinary Bosco falls in love with Stephy Tang (鄧麗欣), who plays his cousin from Taiwan that happens to need a place to stay. Under one roof, the two begin to develop feelings for each other and their romance blossoms.
Love in Time will be Bosco’s first leading role in a movie. When asked about his character, Bosco said, “I play a rude and low-class ice cream vendor who is sometimes nice and kind hearted. The movie does carry a little bit of An Autumn’s Tale <秋天的童話> flavor. A grass root guy falls in love with his foster sister. It’s like an old fashion love story.”
Bosco believes that in order to make a good romantic movie, the couple needs to have the right chemistry. He said, “I rarely work together with Stephy, so it is a new and refreshing experience. I have seen Stephy’s movies, but the plot of this one is completely different than the ones she has been in before. She is rather cute in this movie.”
Bosco commented that the movie has shades of Director Fire Lee (火火) in it. He said, “During shooting, I can just glance at him and I will know what he expects. We grew up in the same kind of environment, so I can quickly understand how he feels.”
Comparing TV shows to movies, Bosco found that movie making has a much faster pace. Also, there is so much more preparation to go through to create a movie. More time is needed for every shot as opposed to TV dramas.
Bosco plans to continue filming movies. Love in Time is slated for a November 22 release.
For his music plans, a meeting for an upcoming album had been held a long time ago. Since Bosco was too busy with his acting career, his new album release has taken a back seat to other projects. He wants to make sure his songs are of good quality before his album is released. It also depends on when his good friend and composer, Tang Chi Wai (鄧智偉), can deliver the goods.
Cycling is Bosco’s Favorite Sport
Acting takes up 90 percent of Bosco’s time. Bosco said there is no distinction of night and day and although his sleep schedule is abnormal, he is used to it. In fact, he would be less comfortable if he is too idle at home. He will spend most of his time reading scripts and watching different movies.
For his leisure pursuits, Bosco loves to ride his bicycle. When he was a child, Bosco loved cycling around Tolo Harbour. But nowadays, he cannot do it since the place is quite crowded during the holidays and the weekends. Bosco loves mountain biking, and usually cycles around his neighborhood. Sometimes he will even go hiking with his dog.
Bosco said he prefers individual sports since he does not have a fixed work schedule. It is also not easy to meet friends for dinner or party with them.
Bosco On Fashion
For the interview, Bosco dressed casually and looked refreshing in a plaid shirt and Bermuda shorts. He said he can usually handle any kind of clothing style. When going out, Bosco prefers tight t-shirts and slim pants along with long jackets, and a pair of leather shoes. Bosco usually dresses casually when going to work since he will need to have costume changes for filming.
As for his favorite fashion brands, Bosco has always liked Givenchy. Recently, he has been into eccentric designers including Jean Paul Gaultier as well, as he has a collection of clothes from that brand.
