Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) clean and healthy image sets him apart from other first-line actors who have been plagued with scandalous rumors involving busty mainland actresses. As an eligible bachelor in TVB, Kenneth is popular with female audiences. As Kenneth is known to be a filial son, he is also well-liked by housewives.
Kenneth’s Criteria for His Other Half
Admitting that he dated three times before, Kenneth is currently single and is still seeking his significant half.
Speaking about his criteria for his future girlfriend, Kenneth said, “As I am single now, I will just take it easy for relationship matters. Whether she is from the entertainment industry, it doesn’t matter. It’s important that our personalities are compatible. It’s best that she is not too quiet, immature, and does not know how to take care of people around her. Younger women are also not my cup of tea. After all, work is more important. If she wants me to accompany her every night for Karaoke sessions, I won’t be able to take it. It’s a waste of time! ”
Definition of a Good Man
As Kenneth is a family man who has a healthy lifestyle, he is perceived as a good man in the public’s eyes. Asked if he thought that he is a good man, Kenneth replied, “I feel that the definition of a good man is to take care of family and be faithful after marriage. I do not like casual dating; I treat every relationship seriously.”
Revealing that he wishes to stay with his parents after marriage, Kenneth said, “I hope that I can stay with my family after marriage and live together with my parents. Otherwise, I have to stay very close to my parents’ house. I like to stay at home. I am very traditional and I want to dine with my family during festive occasions. As of now, I do not think that I am considered a good man because I am not married yet.”
Kenneth Counts Himself to Be Lucky
In the entertainment industry for 12 years, Kenneth only became more prominent in recent years. Stating that acting is his passion, Kenneth said, “It’s happy to hold a job that is of your interest. I joined TVB because I like to act. In this line of work, you need more luck than efforts. I am considered one of the lucky ones as I only acted in cameo roles for three years. For me, three years is considered short.”
Kenneth further added, “I never thought of intentionally making myself more prominent. When I recalled those days in which nobody competed against each other and we would practice the filming scenes, it is very harmonious and simple.”
Acting for many years, Kenneth has played many different characters, ranging from a professional doctor, a ruthless criminal to a comical gamer. Kenneth shared that he enjoyed playing villains more than acting as “Mr. Nice Guy,” as there was more room to improve his acting skills.
Kenneth shared that he preferred the rouge lawyer character (MK Sun) in Survivor’s Law 2 <律政新人王2>, the caring brother (Koo Yu Tong) in A Fistful of Stances <鐵馬尋橋>, the straight-faced neurosurgeon (Dr. Cheung Yat Kin) in The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時> and the accountant who was involved in money laundering (Alex Kong) in The Other Truth <真相>.
Prefers to Be an Actor Rather than a Superstar
Stating that singing is Raymond Lam’s (林峯) forte, Kenneth prefers to focus on his acting career as it is his greatest passion. As Kenneth does not have to carry the idol image, he revealed that he was able to try out many different characters, be it a comedian or a villain.
Preferring to be an actor instead of a superstar, Kenneth said, “I admire Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Benz Hui (許紹雄) the most for their approach to acting and personal lives. I feel that an actor cannot be too glamorous. Between an actor and superstar, I prefer to be an actor as I can concentrate on my acting and lead a simple life. An actor can marry and have kids, truly be himself and live the life he wishes. There are also less paparazzi stalking him.”
Hobbies and Favorite Pastime
As a “homebody,” Kenneth often dines with his family. He dislikes nightlife and drinking and will sleep around midnight if he does not need to work. Under the influence of his father, Kenneth also takes a liking to drinking Chinese tea. His favourite hobby is to play soccer. Whenever he has time, he will arrange a soccer game with his friends, maintaining a healthy lifestyle at the same time.
Kenneth’s Beauty Secrets
Kenneth disclosed that he used to resist facial care for men, and thought that skin care maintenance is only for women. Before entering the industry, Kenneth did not bother in keeping up his appearance, and could not even be bothered to comb his hair! He also disclosed that his face was filled with acne in the past, as he only used tap water to wash his face.
After becoming an actor, Kenneth realized that it is important to have a good image. Now, Kenneth will go for a facial every week. Revealing that he has a combination of oily and dry skin, Kenneth is now particular about selecting the right products for himself. He also undergoes laser treatment to improve his skin texture.
