New TVB series, Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒> is the talk of the town, pushing up Kate Tsui’s (徐子珊) popularity and chances to win the TV Queen award.
In the drama, Kate’s character, “Pat Chan,” works in a bar in order to take care of her sick and beloved younger brother. Working in this rough environment, she faces many difficult situations and encounters the dregs of society. Kate has many crying scenes, but her struggles make her character become stronger and tougher.
A Filial Daughter
Outside of her tough “Drug Queen” onscreen persona, Kate is very family oriented. She has had a great relationship with her family since she was a child. Although everyone in the family is busy and has little time to see each other, they still remain very close. Kate’s parents and her elder sister currently live in three different places: mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Once Kate has free time, she will fly there and spend time with her family.
Separated in three different places and due to their busy work schedules, Kate hardly sees her family. Sometime her mother will visit her in Hong Kong. This time, Kate’s sister went on a business trip and needed her mother to take of care her daughter. Therefore, during Mid-Autumn Festival, Kate requested a few days off to spend time with her mother and her niece in Taiwan.
Kate always plays a very tough characters in many of her series, but she honestly has a fragile side of her. If she could change herself, she wants to become more gentle and dependent on others to take care of her.
Many Hong Kong artists have opportunities to make good sums of money to film TV series in mainland China. Kate has already established a name for herself, and had plans to film a mainland drama. She was actually scheduled to film a TV series there during the Mid-Autumn Festival, but luckily the filming date was postponed. Kate took advantage of date change, and went to visit her family in Taiwan.
As for filming movies, Kate works very hard and recently completed movie, Buddy Cops <神獸巴打>. She will be filming a mainland horror movie next, and will continue to pursue both her TV and film careers simultaneously.
The year-end TVB award ceremony is coming up in less than two months. Kate’s performance in Highs and Lows is well accepted and praised by the viewers. The drama has a large following and Kate’s role is a breakthrough performance for her.
When asked about the Anniversary awards, Kate said that awards usually indicate the success of the actor, especially this year’s newly implemented audience voting system to select the TV King and Queen. The results will be fair and not produce controversy. However for Kate, she is already satisfied by being nominated.
