Wayne Lai Has The Confidence To Be TV King For The Third Time
Michael Tse’s (謝天華) Laughing Gor character in Lives of Omission <潛行狙擊> has been seen as the top contender for TVB’s Best Actor award. However, two-time TV King award winner Wayne Lai’s (黎耀祥) Forensic Heroes 3 <法證先鋒3>, which will be this year’s Anniversary series, has yet to be released. Yesterday when the reporter called Wayne, he honestly expressed that he was quite confident in Forensic Heroes 3 and winning the TV King award for the third consecutive time.
When mentioned that every year his drama would be selected as a TVB Anniversary show, Wayne whose drama has always been a ratings guarantee, laughed and said, “It’s not like that lahs! We must keep an eye on the series until it breaks a new high record. However, not that I’m praising my own show as being good (賣花讚花香) but the forensic science element in Forensic Heroes 3 has always been highly sought after by audiences.” (Do you have the confidence to win TV King again?) “Of course, I have!”
Faced with this year’s strongest opponent, Michael Tse as Laughing Gor, Wayne confessed candidly that of course Michael cannot be neglected. However, Wayne also thought highly of “Laughing Gor” Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) in Ghetto Justice <怒火街頭> and Bosco Wong’s (黃宗澤) performance in Lives of Omission <潛行狙擊>. Wayne then said, “Bosco’s role this time around is really unique. He has a high chance every minute and every second!”
Facing off with such a strong opponent like Wayne Lai, Michael Tse affirmed that it hasn’t affected his confidence, “It is normal for every actor to feel confident about his own drama. I haven’t tease Wayne for his seriousness when filming. I am extremely confident about my own work but as usual, it is too soon to tell [who would win the TV King award.]”
