Myolie Wu Needs to Go Past Michelle Yim for Repeat TV Queen Title
Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) received her first TV Queen award for her portrayal in Curse of the Royal Harem <萬鳳之王> last year. Myolie will be pinning her hopes on her performance in Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭2> to earn her the award. Year-to-date, there are no major threats to her title for now.
Although Charmaine Sheh’s (佘詩曼) performance in When Heaven Burns <天與地> was brilliant, the show was aired at the end of last year, so Charmaine has a large disadvantage. Myolie’s only competitor thus far is Tavia Yeung (楊怡), who plays a specialist trainee in The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>. It is apparent Myolie is still viewed as the number one female artist at TVB, since she is featured with in the TVB calendar with three TV Kings, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Moses Chan (陳豪), and Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎).
With TVB eager to implement audience votes in determining the TVB Anniversary Awards winners this year, this may prevent Myolie from winning another TV Queen award. Tavia’s character in the Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族> gives her many opportunities to showcase her acting skills. Costarring alongside Wayne Lai, Michelle Yim (米雪) in The Confidant <大太監> also has potential of winning the award.
Myolie mentioned she was very honored to be in the calendar with the three TV kings. Myolie said, “Actually, I am already very happy and satisfied with the award from last year. There are quite a few eligible candidates to win the award this year. Michelle Yim is especially amazing! I am already happy to be in the Top 5, and I don’t have any pressure to win.”
Filming “Rosy Business 3” Adds Pressure
Whether or not Myolie will win again, it is now in the hands of the viewers. Producer Lee Tim-Shing (李添勝), will start filming Rosy Business 3 <巾幗梟雄 3> next February, and she will replace Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯) as the leading actress. The series will have a new cast of actors, with Wayne Lai as the only actor remaining. Wayne said he is looking forward to work with Myolie. Speaking with Tim Gor about the storyline, Wayne believed there is no way to repeat the same plot of lover/friend relationship with Sheren. Another reason why Wayne is kept in the show while Sheren is removed is due to her status as a per series contracted artist.
Wayne said, “I really want to work with Sheren in a completely different series. I have never worked with Myolie before; I feel her acting skill has matured. In addition, she’s a very intelligent actress. I have confidence to ignite some flames in our collaboration.”
Myolie also said that she is very happy to work with Tim Gor and Wayne Lai, but it will add pressure to perform because she will be acting in the shadow of Sheren Tang’s performance in the previous dramas. When asked about the conflicting schedule of filming TV series in mainland China and Rosy Business 3, Myolie mentioned that she already spoke to the production team in the China to rearrange the filming schedule. “I will finish shooting Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲宵II> in December, and afterwards I will start shooting a few Mainland TV series. As far as I know, the schedule should be okay. I am looking forward to work with Wayne, and I am ready to give my best shot.”
