Tracy Chu to Star Opposite Lawrence Ng in “The Hippocratic Crush 2”
Last year’s Miss Hong Kong second runner-up Tracy Chu (朱千雪) is being groomed to become the next rising artist. Aside from hosting the Jade Solid Gold show, Tracy was tapped to star in TVB’s drama The Hippocratic Crush 2 <On Call 36小時> with the opportunity to star alongside Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Tavia Yeung (楊怡).
When asked if she was worried that she will suffer a similar fate to Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗) when her acting was criticized harshly by netizens, Tracy said, “Yes I am worried, but I will not compare myself. I’ve watched Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族> and I felt that for Rebecca was very good as a first time actress, but it’s maybe that the audience is not as understanding. But constructive criticism is good because it will only push us to improve. When I was in the pageant, I faced a lot of harsh feedback myself. Some said I wasn’t pretty enough and others said I didn’t know how to communicate while others liked me, so there are always two sides to the story. That’s why I will prepare myself to accept any type of feedback.”
Addressing the fact that Tracy has been given more screen opportunities than 2012 Miss Hong Kong winner, Carat Cheung (張名雅), Tracey answered very diplomatically by stating, “We just have different areas of work. Carat is still carrying out her duties as Miss Hong Kong and participating in a lot of charity events.”
Tracy also shared that she is extremely excited to work alongside the newly crowned TV Queen and My Favorite Male Character recipients, Tavia Yeung and Kenneth Ma. “I am very excited but also very nervous to act alongside Tavia, Kenneth and Lawrence. I’m worried that I’ll be too stiff and not be able to speak my lines smoothly enough. I hope to work with Wayne Lai because we collaborated previously. I’m most worried about working with Raymond Lam because he is my idol, and I think that he might be so handsome that I don’t know how to react!”
