Tracy Chu Rallies TV King Votes for Vincent Wong

Vincent Wong (王浩信) is once again a hot fan favorite to win TV King this year, but with the oncoming anniversary drama season, taking that golden trophy would be just as hard as it was the previous year.

Last year, Vincent won the heart of all generations alike when he starred as “Ditch” in the time-traveling drama Over Run Over <EU超時任務>. Though he reached top five in Best Actor nominations, A Fist Within Four Walls <城寨英雄> actor Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) ended with the trophy.

This year, Vincent will be entering the race again with Legal Mavericks <踩過界>, a legal crime drama that stars Vincent as a blind lawyer. Netizens have been actively advocating for Vincent to win the TV King trophy, but with upcoming anniversary dramas like Line Walker: The Prelude <使徒行者2> and Heart of Greed 3 <溏心風暴3> that will soon take the spotlight, winning TV King will be much harder than expected.

We won’t know the winner until December, but Vincent’s Over Run Over and Legal Mavericks costar Tracy Chu (朱千雪) is already starting to rally votes for Vincent as much as she can. She said in an interview, “He is already TV King in my eyes. He plays a blind person this time, and it’s not an easy role to do, because viewers can automatically tell if you look like a blind person or not. I know how much work he’s put into the role, and I’m sure everyone can see that too. I’ve already mentioned this in bigbigchannel, but the netizens and I all want the same thing, and that it to see him win TV King. Of course, I hope he wins it overseas first, and then in Hong Kong. I already knew he was TV King material when I worked with him on Over Run Over. Whether it’s this year or next year, I know he’ll win it eventually. Hard work pays off. I hope our viewers will vote for him too.”

    As of now Vincent Wong truly is the only one who deserves TV King. Don’t know how well the other lead actors will do in the anniversary drama but I hope he at least makes it to the Top 5 and that TVB knows that Vincent Wong IS lead actor material.

    Omg yes! Vincent Wong FTW! He’s outdone most of the actors this year in terms of role and acting capabilities. Definitely deserve it.

      Normally at this time of the year, there would be a few runners for Best Actor already. So far there has been one runner,Vincent. His performance is miles better than the next best opponent so far.Best supporting actor will be a tremendous battle this year though….

      I can’t imagine anyone besting Vincent’s performance because it has been tremendous. However there’s still a few series to come. Still a chance for Bobby, Michael Miu, Moses, Steven Ma, Ha Yu, Bosco, Dicky, Roger, kenneth and even a Ruco redemption. Though this all depends on if TVB will wait for all these series to finish first before handing out the award.

    So far indeed only Vincent Wong stands out of the rest…and i think it’s time for him to win either TV King or Favourite Male Actor as recognition for his talent and hardwork all these years. If it is still not the time for him to win in Hong Kong, I hope he could win either in Singapore or Malaysia as a start.

    Vincent will be in Heart of Greed 3, and if the series receive rating success as its prequels, it may help to boost his popularity and increase his chances of winning an award.

      First thing first, TVB should stop casting Vincent in supporting roles or 2nd leads. This guy can hold a whole series together but half of his series are still supporting others. Vincent has shown that he has chemistry with all his female onscreen partners in the last couple of years.

      Ruco has been lazy in the last couple of years and has not strived to improve his acting. Even his most loyal fans cannot find excuses for him anymore. The likes of Kenneth Ma have improved greatly and Vincent has put in an amazing performance.

        Totally agree. I am a fan of Ruco but I support Vincent all the way for Best Actor. He convinced me through and through for his role in Legal Mavericks.

        Ruco disappointed me this year in TUA – i am sure mostly is due to poor character development or he is just given a non challenging role.

        Cmon TVB, give Ruco something good like The Other Truth or Brother’s Keeper or Ruse of Engagement.

        @jimmyszeto I don’t it is fair to say that Ruco has been lazy in the last couple of years. I think his acting is still very good except that he has been given lousy roles lately like in TUA. To my mind, I think he was good in Burning Hands. Has everyone forgotten about that show that aired early in the year? Please don’t forget about that show and Yat Kor. He played the role well together with Rosina Lam. I only dont like how he handled his personal life which impacted and made others feel awkward like Nancy Wu. He could be more gracious and be a gentleman!!!

        @myozzie Sorry have to disagree with you on BH. The plot was worse than TUA. At least TUA had a better cast who sort of helped to redeem the drama a little. BH was just downright awful with lousy cast like Pal Sin, Rebecca Chan Kelly Fu and Rosina. All B and C listers except for Ruco.

        @passingby @jimmyszeto @myozzie Not to mention that BH was essentially a recycled storyline and plot, with some scenes directly lifted from famous HK movies (poor man’s version basically with weak cast and bad acting to boot)….bringing up that sorry excuse for a series definitely does not help Ruco’s case here.

        Lazy or not, doesn’t change the fact that Ruco’s acting hasn’t improved and his career is pretty much stagnant. Yes, part of it is TVB’s fault, but that doesn’t mean the artists themselves bear no responsibility. There are ways to improve one’s own acting outside of just filming series for TVB – the serious ones take advantage of these opportunities to better themselves. Some artists take acting lessons outside of TVB, others seek mentorship and guidance from veterans who are more experienced…there are a whole slew of options out there. Ruco is in a stable enough position now that he should be able to take his career into his own hands and not let TVB dictate his fate and essentially run his career into the ground. When someone is a consummate actor and is truly passionate about the craft and serious about honing their acting, it absolutely shows (Wayne and Sheren are great examples of this, for instance) – Ruco definitely doesn’t fall into this category, but then again very few of the current TVB siu sangs and fa dans do either. That’s one of the biggest problems with the HK entertainment industry nowadays – too many people merely going through the motions….

        Ruco obviously isn’t very ambitious and passionate about acting. He realised he could make money and that was it. Nobody will let a couple of years go to waste and not improve if they were passionate about their profession. I was already expressing my view that his acting is not at a good level after A fist Within Four Walls and I’m a big fan of his performances in ‘The Other Truth’ and Every Move You Make’. There are countless actors and actresses that try to hone their skills by taking stage plays for lesser pay.Look at Anthony Wong and Wayne Lai. We can look at Fala Chen who decided to skip a few years of earning big and study when she found that she lacked in certain areas. When she comes back, would she want to act with someone like Ruco Chan? A Big NO. Would the bigger name movie stars want to act alongside Ruco? I doubt they would have heard of him to be honest.

        @jimmyszeto Exactly! And that’s why I have such huge respect for artists who are actually passionate about their craft and invest the time and energy (and money) to go to school for it (like all those artists who graduated from HKAPA for example) or at minimum try to actively seek self improvement in some other form. The way I see it, being given an opportunity is one thing, what you make of that opportunity is another.

        One example that I think illustrates this perfectly (and people in this forum might be able to relate to more since it’s current TVB artists): I know most people here don’t like Sisley Choi and to be honest, I don’t either. But one thing I will give Sisley credit for that puts her miles above Grace Chan (natural comparison point since both started at the same time) is the fact that she is actively trying to improve herself and her acting. Some may try to say that Sisley was able to improve because she was given more opportunities by TVB than Grace did, but if you look back at both of their careers, it’s easy to see that’s not true – both were given similar number of opportunities (in fact, I would say Grace was given more opportunities because they tried putting her into hosting as well), yet Sisley’s acting has improved a lot while Grace’s is still cringe-worthy. The difference is that while Grace has been busy gushing to the media about her boyfriend, Sisley has been taking acting lessons from the likes of Anthony Wong and Olivia Yan (both have acting classes that they put on for their theater students). Of course, Sisley is nowhere near the level of the veterans, but at least she is actively taking steps to learn acting and apply what she has learned in her performances (and it shows!) – to me, that’s a sign she takes her career seriously and has some amount of passion for acting (the personal investment outside of work). Of course, I’m not saying that every TVB artist has to go take acting lessons in order to prove they are serious about their career, but for me, those who do put in the effort to pursue some type of self-enrichment with the intent of improving themselves (whether in acting or other career) have a higher amount of respect in my book.

        It’s a waste and lack of dedication to just grab the money and wasting the years away. Ruco is 40 years old and ever since ‘the other truth’ he has been happily making a living off these young,playful characters. He’s aging and can’t play these characters forever. For someone with twenty years experience, I’m expecting a bit more of an effort from him to improve. Tony Leung was great playing cheeky, young righteous characters when he was 15-20 years younger than Ruco now but he though seriously about his acting and expressions and matured into what he has become today. These guys Ruco, Ron and Raymond. They are pretty much done and finished soon because they don’t want to put in the effort and lack the passion. I don’t question that Ruco enjoys his profession (celebrity and in the limelight) but I doubt he enjoys his main principle profession(acting).

        @llwy12 I really do respect Sisley for her efforts. I remember reading in a recent interview that she’s seen her criticism and is working hard to improve on them – and she’s true to her word because she honestly has improved HEAPS. Anyone who says she hasn’t improved is either lying or should watch that bicycle drama again right after Legal Mavericks. Meanwhile, Grace is, like you said, either gushing about her boyfriend, or complaining that the audience criticizes her too much. Like you said, natural comparison point, and kind of intriguing how your personal choices really shape where you stand in the industry.

        When I say that Ruco is lazy is that he hasn’t looked for ways to improve his acting skills. He is relying on his popularity and that can disappear overnight.No one is mentioning Burning Hands because it was terrible. Ruco really needs to take some acting courses or take part in stage plays because currently he is just a one trick pony and certainly far from becoming versatile.

        @jimmyszeto I don’t think Ruco Chan was lazy in the last two years. Perhaps his acting range is rather limited. Due to his “wicked” eyes, it is harder for him to convince the audience when he acts a simple, nice, and innocent person.

        In his new drama “Succession War” (天命), his role was Heshen (纽祜禄·和珅) who was a powerful and most corrupt official in Qing Dynasty. I hope he would act better in this role.

        Also I noticed that he had lazy intonations from time to time when he delivered his dialogues. In the past, since he did not have heavy roles with lots of dialogues, he managed to speak better. I think he should get rid of his lazy intonations if he wants to be a good actor. Compared to Joel Chan and Vincent Wong in delivering dialogues with no lazy intonations, Ruco Chan surely is the weaker one.

    I also think Vincent Wong is the best actor in TVB drama series up to mid September. Not sure if there will be other better actors in other series during the rest of the year before TVB’s Trophy Awarding Ceremony. Vincent acted very well as a blind lawyer in “Legal Mavericks”. He was very consistent in his acting as a blind, cold, and emotionless lawyer.

    On the whole, Vincent Wong is a very versatile actor. His acting range is pretty broad, from villainous to good, from ugly looking to handsome looking, from a sissy man to a real gentleman. He is not super handsome, but is tall and decent looking. It would be perfect if he had his teeth straightened a bit.

    Vincent has also worked very hard in the last few years, from a green actor to a mature actor now. He surely can stay at 1st lead roles from now on.

    Good luck, Vincent Wong. I hope you will win some decent awards this year.

      when ruco was in that pirate drama with grace chan, that’s the first time I felt that he had the acting chops. before then, I didn’t dislike him, but didn’t notice him that much either. however, even with that said, I think I liked his role more than his acting. or maybe it was a case of the role fitting him really well. I don’t know why I’m not a fanatic for him like almost everyone was after Brother’s Keeper or ROE.

      but I can tell you I’m a fanatic for Vincent. now this is a man who can fit and deal with any role given to him and make it his own. he shines and it’s not a case of the role being tailored to him, because he shines even as a supporting character. now this is how you tell he’s winning material.

        @coralie I agree! Vincent had potential from the getgo. I actually first noticed him in Gun Metal Grey where he was able to hold his own against veterans such as Michael and Felix and still make an impression. And no, his success is not due to TVB tailor-making roles for him – just take a look at some of his older series where he was basically playing nobodies…he stood out in those roles too (and not just because he’s tall, lol), despite not having much screen time. One of the marks of a good actor is 1) being able to take a minor role and still manage to shine in it and/or 2) take a crappy, horribly written role/character and breathe life into it, making it into a worthy role….Vincent has proven he can do both, which already speaks to the immense talent and potential he has in acting. No doubt that he will go far, I just hope TVB doesn’t ruin it for him….

        @llwy12 I feel somewhat guilty for saying this now but I really disliked Vincent in GMG. It was probably less to do with his acting than the fact that I thought he looked really strange, but I have grown to like him more and more since. Whereas with Ruco, I really liked him in his earlier baddie roles and was really excited when he got to the lead in The Other Truth. I think that was the pinnacle of his career though as he hasn’t impressed me in anything else since. Meanwhile, Vincent just gets better and better,and most, if not all of his roles are very memorable. Legal Mavericks is the only TVB series I attempted to watch this year, and I actually finished it! only people who know me would know what a huge deal it was as I very, very rarely watch TV series at all.

        I don’t dislike Ruco, and I think his acting is quite good… but I never went nuts over him like everyone else (and quite frankly just couldn’t get myself to understand why everyone was going nuts over him) – and believe me.

        Vincent, on the other hand – he’s always stood out to me (I first noticed him from his special guest star in Can’t Buy Me Love), even when his roles were smaller. I wasn’t crazy over him before maybe because he didn’t have much opportunity, but now I’m a HUGE FAN! He is definitely a star and has handled all his roles this year (and last year) very well.

      That’s laughable. Getting the role as a ‘guy kidnapped and suffering from Post Traumatic Distress in Dead Wrong’ was Tailor made for him? Playing the role of a ‘low time funny,righteous triad, police undercover was a tailor made role for him? Playing a blind but cold lawyer with inner care for others is tailor made role for Vincent? Get real will you. Every role has been different and challenging. It shows that TVB trust that Vincent can pull them off. Ruco is the one given easy tailor made roles and he’s just passable at best..

        @jimmyszeto Yup, I agree! To me, getting a tailor-made role essentially means that the role was specially designed to either fit the artist’s personality or play to their strengths – in other words, it’s the easy way out in that the artist doesn’t have to do much acting. Honestly, someone who is passionate about acting should be offended at getting “tailor-made roles” because it means that whoever is giving them the role has little to no confidence in the artist’s acting or don’t think they are up for the challenge of playing a role that’s different from who they are (isn’t that what acting is about after all?). It also strips the artist of the opportunity to improve and further hone their acting. This is why I always say that TVB is doing their lead artists a disservice by constantly typecasting them into certain roles or “tailoring” roles to fit them. As a TV station with the goal of making money, TVB is successful, but as a “school” for artists to learn and hone their acting skills (which is what people often like to compare TVB to whenever artists leave the station in droves – they’re not really leaving, they’re just “graduating” after learning everything they could at the “school of TVB”), they fail miserably. Like I commented earlier in a different thread, the best thing that TVB can do for its artists is to leave them alone so they can develop on their own without management involvement.

        TVB is at fault but the actor has to take responsibility. If we mixing up his characters from A fist within Four Walls, Burning Hands and The Unholy Alliance then it’s definitely the actor just going to work to get the scenes complete and going home rather than putting in extra time and effort. Is TVB confident enough to give Ruco a role as challenging as Vincent’s blind lawyer role? I know I wouldn’t be.

        I suppose there’s not many out there like Anthony Wong, Wayne Lai and Koo Ming Wah who live and breathe acting.keep on looking for ways to hone their skills. Whether they were poor and penniless or popular they have put 100% into every role. Can’t say that for guys like Ruco and Ron. It was all about getting to the money for them.

        The difference is that during the 80s and early 90s, China was irrelevant to the HK entertainment industry and barely anyone from HK would head up there to make money.The HK celebrities were not as well known in China and then came the internet boom. Hk celebrities became superstars overnight in China and even mediocre actors and extras are known. The never ending opportunities to earn quick short term money has blinded todays celebrities and shifted their focus away from their primary job ‘acting’. If they think deeper by investing time in the their acting, it would increase their long term earning potential. Also back in the old days a mix of keen youngsters with acting dreams (e.g. Stephen Chow,Tony Leung) and poor rebellious youngsters off the street who entered the acting classes. Nowadays, young generations from rich families, with good connections or parents from the entertainment industry get promoted. They lack the passion to learn the arts of acting and do not need to work hard. All they are looking for is fame to boost their statuses and egos.As a result, talent within the industry is at a minimum and TV has suffered as a result.

        @jimmyszeto Well-said and agreed! Reading your comment reminded me of something I remember Francis Ng had said in an interview many years ago — he had mentioned that back when he was filming Triumph in the Skies (the first installment in 2003), one of his younger co-stars told him that there is no need for them to work on their acting, since succeeding in the entertainment industry is all about having good connections. And there have been countless veterans over the past 20 years who have complained about the same type of mentality / attitude with the younger artists they’ve worked with. I remember some veterans lamenting how in the old days (70s/80s) the younger artists they worked with (the likes of Tony Leung, Andy Lau, Felix Wong, Michael Tao, Francis Ng, Sean Lau, etc. who were all newbies back then) were all eager to learn from their seniors – they would often shadow the veteran artists or stick around when the veteran artists were doing their scenes so they could learn from them…some of them would go so far as to actively seek out the senior artists to mentor them and teach them about acting…the seniors would “put money in the pockets” of juniors all the time….however, the later generations have a completely different mentality and most don’t care about learning. A few of the same veterans would try to give these youngsters “tips” on acting like they used to do with the previous generation (of which most went on to become big stars), only to be shunned and criticized as being “outdated” or are automatically labeled as a “difficult” artist trying to impose their knowledge on others….so after a while, the veterans stopped trying to “put money in juniors’ pockets” (I don’t blame them – why continue to give advice when the people you’re giving it to obviously don’t want to hear it?). This is one of the reasons why I’m not as gung-ho about the HK entertainment industry nowadays as I was in the past – being from the “older” generation and having witnessed how the industry was in the past versus what it has become now, it’s hard for me not to feel disillusioned and frustrated with how bad things have turned out…

    I’m not sure I want him to win TV King because I don’t want what happened to Ruco to happen to him :(. Netizens can love you one year and totally hate you the next. Like Kevin and Ruco… But maybe it was their relationships that affected their popularity? Who knows.

    But Vincent is married so maybe he won’t suffer the same fate. I totally love Vincent and I think he’s very versatile. But it seems like TVB will only give you really simply good-guy roles when you’re King… I kinda don’t want that.

    Vincent is great and I want to see him in villainous roles next. He played bad guys before but it was a while ago and his acting wasn’t very mature yet.

    I’m pretty sure Vincent will get robbed of the award again this year. Although I enjoyed A Fist Within Four Walls last year, I didn’t necessarily think that it was Ruco’s best performance. Vincent on the other hand was amazing in Run Over Run. If not Best Actor, he should have at least won over Ben for My Favorite Male Character.

    There are still many more dramas that aren’t done airing/have yet to air but I do think that Vincent’s performance in Legal Mavericks has been the strongest so far. If it somehow ends up going to Natalis Chan for Bet Hur, I will definitely quit watching TVB forever. On note of Legal Mavericks, Law Lok Lam also did an amazing job in his role. I’d have no complaints if Best Supporting went to him!
