Wayne Lai Willing to Go Naked for Good Scripts
Despite winning the TV King title for the third time, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) is an accommodating actor, willing to perform passionate love scenes and even go naked onscreen.
Wayne Lai is currently filming The Love Firm <傳愛事務所> with Christine Ng (伍詠薇) and Patrick Tang (鄧健泓). In the drama, Wayne will have several love scenes with Christine who plays his ex-wife. Wayne explained, “We are not young lovers so there will be no passionate scenes. Otherwise, viewers will gag!”
However, Wayne will not hesitate to remove his clothes and bare his naked body should the need arise. Nor will he have qualms about filming passionate scenes. If a good script calls for a middle-aged man to film a passionate scene, Wayne reasoned, it must be to create a necessary and dramatic effect so he has no reason to reject.
Wayne cited Tony Leung (梁朝偉) in Lust, Caution <梁朝偉> as a good example. “The scene where Tony bared his body to film a passionate bed scene with Tang Wei (湯唯) created such an impact; it was necessary.” Wayne was also fortunate that his family understands the demands of an actor and gives him their full support. To-date though, Wayne has not been requested to film such a passionate scene. He joked, “Perhaps they do not see that I have the disposition. I can only hope!”
Wayne Lives a Day at a Time
In The Love Firm, viewers will be able to see a new aspect of Wayne’s acting. In the show, he would be struck with a stroke and will be seen with a distorted mouth and a walking stick. In real life, Wayne is passive about his health. “Life and death are fated. I don’t go for medical check-ups because I don’t want to scare myself. Ignorance is bliss! But having a stroke is scary. With our irregular working hours, we have to pay more attention to our health. I do try to eat light meals when I can.”
Christine Ng Is Happy As It Is
Invited to Gigi Lai’s (黎姿) New Year’s Eve bash, Christine was all praise for Gigi’s daughters. However, having children is not on Christine and husband, Kasey Lin (練海棠)’s agenda. Married for more than 13 years, Christine and Kasey are happy with their current marriage and lifestyle and do not intend to have children.
