Following the financial success of TVB artists in mainland China, such as Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎), Ron Ng (吳卓羲) and Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) have also set their eyes set on pursuing acting careers in mainland. Rumor has it that two major mainland production companies are trying to recruit Ron and Bosco to film TV series for them.
Allegedly, Ron and, to a lesser degree, Bosco, feel that their futures are not too bright at TVB especially after recent scandals. They will eventually leave for greener grasses once their contracts expire. With little luck recently in their romantic relationships, they have to make plans for their careers.
Ron is Not on Good Terms with TVB Executives
Ron Ng’s image has been tarnished due to many scandals circulating in the media, especially in his relationship with ex-girlfriend, Viann Zhang (張馨予), and the swimming pool scandal with the married Toby Leung (梁靖琪). TVB executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲), was furious with Ron when the damaging pool photos of Ron and Toby flirting in the swimming pool appeared in the tabloids. She often warned Ron not to get involved with other actresses. Not only did he ignore her advice, Ron’s flirtatious friendship with producer Tommy Leung’s (梁家樹) daughter, Toby Leung, was exposed. Tommy was reportedly furious with Ron, and the producers that work for Tommy decided to focus promoting other actors instead.
Ron only appears in two TVB series this year, Ruse of Engagement <ATF反恐> and Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>, while playing supporting roles to Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Kenneth Ma (馬國明) respectively. Ron allegedly understands there is no future for him at TVB, so he is now planning to pursue an acting career in mainland China. Rumor has it that a few mainland production companies have already contacted Ron and he was offered $6 million RMB for a two-year contract.
During a promotional event for Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles, Ron admitted he would like to try filming more mainland Chinese TV series, while allowing TVB to arrange all the necessary details. Ron also mentioned he will not think about leaving TVB until his contract expires.
Bosco Does Not Wish to Miss Money-making Opportunities
It was reported that last year, several mainland Chinese companies tried to recruit Bosco to star in their TV series. He turned down the offers due to existing commitments with TVB, in which his contract will not expire until 2015. Realizing that his colleagues, Kevin Cheng and Raymond Lam (林峰) are making big money filming mainland TV series, Bosco certainly does not want to miss out on this golden opportunity. With little chance of reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Bosco is now considering starting a new path in his career with a mainland production company.
Bosco admitted that he had spoken to a few production companies, but has not agreed to any contracts yet. He already had 4 to 5 scripts lined up for him to review. His goal is to spend half of his time filming mainland TV series, as he needs money to pay mortgages for 3 condo apartments.
