Raymond Lam Clarifies Rumors of Leaving Entertainment Industry
Rumors that Raymond Lam (林峯) will quit the entertainment industry in order to help his father manage his family business shocked fans. He was quoted as stated that not helping out his father would deem him unfilial, and that quitting the entertainment industry was not an impulsive decision. Today, Raymond clarified the rumors to reassure panicked fans.
Raymond pointed out that the entertainment industry is for him to develop a career. His family had let him make his own decision, but he would certainly return and help out when his family requires it. As to when that will be, Raymond stated that there is no date yet. He expressed that the rumors were all exaggerated, springing upon the recent outcome of the TVB Anniversary Awards. At the moment, Raymond only wishes to complete current on hand jobs. Currently focusing on his January concert, Raymond noted that there are ongoing discussions of work plans in place.
“I don’t know why there are such rumors. Is it because there is no other news to report? I did accept an interview, and even the reporter knows. One day, I will have to go back and help out my family. This is the responsibility of being the eldest son. But as to when that will be, one year, three years, maybe five years, there is no set time. If my family asks for my help, then I will return.” Raymond expressed. Where might have these rumors emerged? “Maybe it was related to the TVB Best Actor award. But my friends all know that I don’t crave for awards. If I get it, then of course that’s great.”
Speaking of further rumors of being upset and therefore declining to shave his head for new TVB drama, Food for the Slaves <食為奴>, Raymond laughed loudly and said, “This is what the tabloids have been saying about me and the awards ceremony. Ever since I was a newcomer in the industry, I never saw awards as a big deal, but it is the best evidence to show that I have been working hard in the year. For me, the greatest satisfaction comes from everybody’s love for my works.”
As to whether or not Raymond will film Food for the Slaves, he expressed that nothing is certain at the moment, since there are still many changing factors. TVB is still in discussion over the production of the drama, and they have not sat down and spoken to Raymond over the matter yet.
