Hong Kong actors over 50 remain to be favorites for local audiences. In TVB’s 2015 drama line-up, over half of the dramas showcased at the annual Sales Presentation are led by actors over 50 years old.
Upcoming series Limelight Years <華麗轉身>, which completed filming in September, stars 65-year-old Damian Lau (劉松仁) and 67-year-old Liza Wang (汪明荃). The supporting cast features 30-year-old Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) and 34-year-old Alex Fong Lik Sun (方力申).
Next year’s Anniversary drama, Lord of Shanghai <梟雄>, is led by 52-year-old Anthony Wong (黃秋生), 56-year-old Kent Tong (湯鎮業), and 50-year-old Wayne Lai (黎耀祥).
The Last Imperial Physician <末代御醫>, an upcoming Qing Dynasty about the empire’s last royal doctor, stars Roger Kwok (郭晉安), who is 50 years old.
