Being able to separate life from acting and reality is what all successful actors should achieve, according to Tiger Cub’s <飛虎> Oscar Leung (梁烈唯). On the day of his interview with good friend and onscreen partner Christine Kuo (苟芸慧), Oscar’s phone was ringing from his girlfriend’s calls. To not hinder the interview, Oscar completely shut off his phone. Christine said, “You’re not afraid your girlfriend will be angry?” Oscar immediately replied, “Afraid of what? I don’t care if you’re the king or queen, I’m at work!”
Christine Kuo Falls for Oscar Leung
Although Oscar and Christine have known each other for a while, Tiger Cubs is their first collaboration. Oscar laughed, “It is the first collaboration of Goddess Christine Kuo and Peasant Oscar Leung!” Oscar joked and said that if he were to ask Christine out for a date in real life, Christine would immediately say yes!
Christine admitted, “Yes, you (Oscar) have a big chance! Do you really know how great you are? You’re attentive, serious, funny… I think I can come up with over a hundred things about how great Oscar is! First, he is really attentive; very considerate and gentlemanly. Second, he’s very perceptive. The sudden things he says can really touch your soul! He surprises you all the time! And of course, I don’t need to tell you how funny Oscar is. Just seeing him makes you so happy!”
“Your praises are making me feel so shy!” exclaimed Oscar. “To be honest, I’m a very quiet person. Why do I always smile when I go to work? It’s because when I grow quiet, my colleagues will ask me if I’m sick, and everyone will ask me if I’m unhappy. I don’t want to affect their work; I always keep an excited mode so my colleagues will not worry for me. If I have to film a sad and emotional scene, I will not go into the makeup room that day.”
Oscar is a Ladies’ Man
When asked if Oscar is a popular boyfriend target for many girls, Oscar said, “Not really. There are not a lot of girls who chase after me in real life, but I really do have a lot of female friends. In TVB, most of my close friends are girls. Besides Christine, I’m also really good friends with Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Vivien Yeo (楊秀惠), Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), and Mandy Wong (黃智雯). I have fewer male friends in comparison!”
Christine said, “You’re a ladies’ man!”
Oscar laughed, “Hahaha! Yes, I admit that!”
Christine explained that Oscar’s easy-going and attentive personality makes him popular among girls. She said, “He can feel what a girl is thinking, and he uses a guy’s perspective in helping the girl fix her problems. That’s why a lot of girls like to share intimate stories with him! I feel safe talking with him.”
Oscar joked, “That’s why I know a lot of secrets in TVB.”
“But I know you will keep them as secrets,” Christine confidently said.
Oscar clarified that he is not always as happy as he seems. He explained, “I also have many personalities, but not to the point where I’m schizophrenic! I can be really happy one minute, and really sad the next, and then really angry after that. When I am attentive, I can also get careless as well.”
Oscar Gives Christine Advice
When Oscar was asked what he thought about Christine, Oscar was full of praises. He exclaimed, “Beautiful of course! Being beautiful in the inside is what matters to me the most. Christine is not only beautiful in the outside, but also in the inside. That is rare! Unlike many artists in the circle, Christine is not a schemer at all! She’s very real. She’s very straightforward. She does not fuss over things.”
Currently being cultivated as a TVB fadan, Christine is given many opportunities to work with some of Hong Kong’s top television actors and actresses. The highly anticipated Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭2>, in which Christine stars as Kevin Cheng’s (鄭嘉穎) ex-wife “Lynette,” is slated to air this summer. Christine was also cast in a major supporting role for the blockbuster drama, Beauty at War <金枝慾孽（貳）>, which stars TV Queens, Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), Ada Choi (蔡少芬), and TV King, Moses Chan (陳豪).
Oscar also sees a bright future for Christine. He said, “She’s very professional and a hardworking person! Although the company is putting in effort to promote her, Christine does not feel complacent. She works harder than many girls who can speak Cantonese well. Her Cantonese has improved so much, and I know she worked really hard for it!”
Oscar, who portrays SDU sniper, “Chong Cheuk Yuen,” in Tiger Cubs, has a crush on his friend’s girlfriend “Ting Wai Wai,” who is portrayed by Christine. Wai Wai later breaks up with her boyfriend after discovering her true feelings for Yuen, and takes the initiative to kiss Yuen. When asked if Oscar had an urge to ask Christine out in real life, Oscar said, “I want to, but I did not. I am able to separate my real life from my acting roles.To be honest, I already have a great girlfriend. She’s a very nice girl! She is my Michelle Chen (陳妍希)! Yeah, that sounds corny, but I feel so blissful right now. Christine is super awesome, but we’re better as friends. I like Christine, but I know that we will not get together. But when I’m filming, I really have to like her! After work, I have to withdraw from that feeling. I’ll be in big trouble if I don’t! That’s why after work, I will not call her or SMS her.”
Christine said, “I also asked Oscar for advice in how to separate real life and acting. He told me that after completing a drama, we should not see each other or call each other for three months. That way, the feelings will not be there anymore.”
Oscar Takes Advice from Chilam Cheung
Oscar said, “It’s important to pull away from your onscreen role. We cannot afford to bring our work into our life. It’s unfair and dangerous! First off, it’s stressful for the actor. Second, it can deeply affect the actor’s relationships with his or her significant other, family, and friends. If the actor’s work begins to affect the others’ family, then that becomes unprofessional, and even shameful. Chilam Cheung (張智霖) taught me this.”
