Hawick Lau a Double Vision of Raymond Lam?
TVB has been focusing on elevating Raymond Lam Fung to be the next Number One Brother. Although earlier plastic surgery rumors surrounded Raymond, this did not lessen his popularity. Some sharp-eyed netizens pointed out that TVB veteran actor, Lau Dan’s son, Hawick Lau Hoi Wai, appears to look like Raymond’s twin brother.
Thirty-five year-old Hawick Lau entered TVB in 1995 and joined his father, Lau Dan, in the cast of Kindred Spirit <真情>. His career in Hong Kong was at a standstill before he headed to China three years ago and found success. Hawick has been filming series non-stop in China with a stable career. Missing from Hong Kong for several years, Hawick grew increasingly handsome. Some netizens posted photos of Hawick from ten years ago, pointing out changes in his facial features not previously observed. Currently, Hawick bears a mixed resemblance between Raymond Lam and Huang Xiao Ming.
Hawick’s face shape has changed over the years and his nose bridge appears to be straighter. At first glance, he does have a strong resemblance to Raymond Lam, who was plagued by plastic surgery rumors. Praised by fans for his handsomeness, Hawick said, “I am unafraid of plastic surgery rumors. A person’s face changes with age, which is true for both men and women.” (What is your secret in becoming more handsome?) “When a person is happy and has confidence, that reflects in his appearance.” He explained that his face shape changed due to maturity and loss of baby fat.
When the reporter noted that Hawick looked like a double vision of Raymond Lam now, Hawick said, “Wow, so hot?!” However, Hawick did not intend to return to Hong Kong to work. “There is too much competition in Hong Kong . Even if I come back, there is no use for an extra ‘Raymond Lam.’”
Hawick revealed that he was still single. Last year, his father, Lau Dan, started pressuring him about marriage. “My father kept reminding me to date if I meet a nice girl. He told me to stop acting so disinterested.”
Some netizens rudely commented, “Does Lau Dau even recognize his own son?” Lau Dan said, “In my eyes, my son is very handsome.” Lau Dau explained that due to Hawick’s success in China , his confidence has increased and his appearance has more vivacity now. “Many actors look very plain and unpolished when they first enter the industry.”
Hawick Lau can be seen opposite Lau Shuet Wah and Ma Ya Shu (Nicky Ng Kei Lung’s ex-wife) in Who Knows a Woman’s Heart <誰知女人心>, which is currently being broadcast in China . He shares a romance with Ma Ya Shu in the series.
Jayne: From certain angles, Hawick Lau does look a lot like Raymond Lam. They share similar face proportions, nose shape, height, and body build. Hawick has gotten very muscular and does look a lot hotter than in the mid 1990s.
Although Hawick denied getting any plastic surgery done, I did notice that his eyes got a lot deeper than how they looked before. I do believe he had his existing double eyelids deepened to create a more intense look. The slimmer face shape could be loss of baby fat. Overall, I do think Hawick is much hotter than before!
