Last year, Linda Chung’s (鍾嘉欣) portrayal of the popular Miss Koo in Yes Sir, No Sir <點解阿Sir係阿Sir> failed to earn her the TV Queen award. This year Linda will be running for the award again with her portrayal of Hailey Kiu in the highest rated drama year-to-date, Witness Insecurity <護花危情>, which was a collaboration with Bosco Wong (黃宗澤).  Linda already starred in 4 TVB series this year, and she has a good chance to challenge Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) to win the TV Queen award. With two more dramas, Forever Love <幸福摩天輪> and Big Wheel <巨輪> airing next year, Linda’s popularity is unstoppable.

The TVB Anniversary Awards will be held in December and the favorites for this year’s TV Queen are becoming more apparent. Last year’s TV Queen Myolie Wu had three series aired this year, including Wish and Switch <換樂無窮>, House of Harmony and Vengeance <耀舞長安>, and Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭2>. Linda had four aired series:  L’Escargot <缺宅男女>, Daddy Good Deeds <當旺爸爸>, House of Harmony and Vengeance <耀舞長安> and Witness insecurity. Linda ‘s character in L’Escargot as Michael Tse’s (謝天華) lover received wide media coverage.

Great Advantage Due Popular Vote

As for her accomplishments this year, Linda felt very satisfied because her 4 series were well received by the viewers. “I am very happy this year; I had a chance to play different roles. As for winning the award, I feel this will depend on fate and destiny. I am happy to receive a lot of good responses from the audiences, so winning is not very important.”

As for challenging Myolie Wu to win the award, Linda said, “Tavia Yueng’s (楊怡) performance is outstanding, and Myolie also performed very well in Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭>. I don’t want to use the word ‘challenge’.” In Linda’s dictionary, there is no such word as “challenge”; She is already very happy to be nominated. As Linda believes that every actress has put in their blood and sweat into their performances, Linda felt that they should all support each other instead.

Due to her large fan base and the one person, one vote system, Linda has a great advantage to win the Best Actress award. When asked whether she has confidence to receive many votes from her loyal fans, Linda said, “I have confidence!” She hopes everyone will vote for her to win. Linda feels her fans appreciate her acting and her roles. However, Linda does not want to have too high of an expectation to win, so she will face the competition with a relaxed attitude instead.

    Anyone besides Myolie please, it’s so undeserving. Her acting is nowhere near Tavia, compare their acting in Beyond The Realm Of Conscience and Curse Of The Royal Harem. How the hell did she win last year? Smh.

      If Myolie’s acting in COTRH is bad, so is Tavia’s crazy acting in BTROC with her shrieking and eye rolling. LOL

      • Veejay replied:

        Yeah Ty’s acting in BTROC is really overrated. Doesn’t feel any evil vibe from her at all, all she did was rolled her eyes big and glare at ppl with no evil vibe. She needs to do more evil role inorder to improve her acting.

        I agree with you Nicole, tavia also exaggerates when acting. like linda and fala.

        Everyone has their favorite, so could be just support the actress that you like more.

      Why are you talking like that??? you’re so arrogant as some people in this world. Myolie did a good role in Ghetto Justice 2. And I’ve seen how they act much improved and very different from other years.Tavia Yeung lately in these years the way that she has to cry in the scenes is exaggerating just as when people criticized Myolie.I can certainly confirm the new anniversary tvb drama she does and is doing. by the way, no atter what myolie and tavia ´s fans would definitely going to support their actress. when it is the award.

    Large fanbase? Not sure abt that relative to TYs. Assuming this a fact, the larger group will still lose out to the minority in a battle due to their fanatism.

    Who is the writer trying to fool here, TY wins for sure!

        Im sure they will find a way. Buy votes or perhaps visiting hospitals & nursing homes to vouch for TY.

        Btw why do you assume TVB would play fair? The rules can be changed to suit their strategic planning i.e. TY’s turn this year and next Kate etc.

      exoidus,

      Are you serious? No way! Altho TY has many fans, they’re all from like singapore or malaysia or someplace other than hk. As far as I know, her fanbase in HK is indeed smaller than Linda’s.

      • Sally replied:

        It’s not just about fans though – there are many hk citizens who do not support anyone in particular, rather they base their votes purely on acting skills. If only everyone did the same, the awards give. Will truly be deserving!

        Sally – if it’s about acting skills, Michelle Yim is way ahead of these little fadans.

      • sure-lee replied:

        It’s pretty obvious that the audience would give it to who they like. Bye bye to acting skills if tvb decides to let the audience decide. But still, i think they’re still gonna secretly give the award to whoever they want. letting the audience choose is just a cover up.

        Most ppl aren’t able to judge based on acting. They are affected by the whether they like the chac. or not.

        Extreme scenes that may have little to do with acting like getting raped might also affect their perception.

    • Veejay replied:

      I’ve a feeling that seniority plays great role in one’s winning result. TY has been longer than Linda and TY seems like someone who will fight back if she feels its unfair to her. Eventhough Linda is a better crier than TY imo, I think Txb is helping to push TY to be queen this year.. just look at how many series TY was in as compare to little series that has linda..

      • Nicole replied:

        I love Linda, but she needs to be a little more vocal and speak for her rights. That’s why she keeps getting stepped over by TVB for awards and good series. Can learn that from Fala and Myolie. They know what they want. When Nancy Wu wanted to join Strictly Come Dancing, it was Myolie who encouraged her to speak up to the executives to grasp her chance.

        Btw, Linda had A lot of series. Daddy Good deeds, L’Escargot, WI, House of Harmony and Vengeance. She just doesn’t have any large productions, because she’s too meek.

      Yup good series her character was pretty bland Mrs Koo seemed to have more personality then Hailey. If this drama aired near the anniversary awards I think Boscos chance of being TV King would’ve been higher as Hui Wai Sum was really well liked.

        The storyline is too draggy for me, basically got bored half way through >_< and the love story isn't grasping enough either, and the ending, though easiest way to end all the problems, but seriously wth.

      • star replied:

        I like Bosco’s acting in general, haven’t watch WI yet. He’s quite natural to me, actually many HK actors are natural to me. Perhaps I’ve seen much worse acting, example the younger Mediacorp actors and Malaysian actors who act in Mediacorp dramas, those are really fake. They couldn’t even deliver neutral lines naturally.
        I can only differentiate between the really bad or exaggerated and average+good ones.

        Yeah, cripple co was def a more outstanding character compared to that of Hui sir. He was so ‘wood’ in that show. I feel that Paul chun stood out the most in WI.

        In my view Bosco can act but he lacks the emotions on eyes. His facial expressions are good but his eyes dun talk.

      • Linnh replied:

        I actually think he played Hui sir really good. In my eyes then Bosco used to be this guy who always play funny playful guy, with this boyish look of him. but when he played Hui sir he showed me that he can act serious too, and get this more mature look. IMO then his role had a lot of inner acting too, it was part where he didn’t say anything, but by using expresion then he could actually show what he felt,which is not always easy to do. But I agree that cripple co was a more outstanding character, but I also think Hui sir is a character you fall in love with.

        I disagree that Bosco lack emotion in his eyes. The thing that made me like Bosco when I first saw him in ‘Find The Light’ is his expressive eyes. I remember commenting ‘this guy can really talk with his eyes’.

    in a previous article, she said it was really this year she discovered she has a real passion for acting, which to me means she hasn’t given her best ability in acting. Although I am her fan, I don’t think she’ll win this year. I hope she does in the future !!!

    Too soon for Linda..she still don’t had any dramas which is memorable for her part in any series. Her performance is just average. For now I think she’s better Kate Tsui but not better than other lead fadans. Sigh, tvb suckz…:(

      yeah her acting’s def better than kate’s. But i dont think tvb has given her alot of diff characters to try cause she was always given the ‘goody-two-shoes’ type of character to portray.
