  • @hazel That's always been the Natalie way. Always zero enthusiasm, zero charisma,zero onscreen presence. She doesn't even have a captivating appearance nor voice. I feel Crystal is probably the most naturally gifted actress to come from Miss HK, in years. Even Tracy Chu took quite few series to improve. Crystal is already fitting in nicely....
  • @jimmyszeto Natalie recites her lines like she's doing a table read; zero emotion and forced. She pauses in between lines and ruins the flow. I must say I disliked Ali when she started out; thought she was terrible in Law dis-Order. However, despite having only seen the first 5 episodes of the Big White Duel, I can tell that she has improved dramatically. I also quite like Crystal Fung and Kelly Cheung.
  • @hazel Need to see more of the series before giving my opinion on Natalie but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was just the same usual boring acting from her. She has never excelled at TVB and it’s a miracle that her acting career has lasted this long. Ali easily outperforming her in first couple of episodes I’ve seen so far..
  • @hazel I actually agree with with you about Natalie... and newcomers.
  • I quite like the pacing and story arc. However, Natalie Tong is terrible. Her script reading is wooden and boring. The newcomers are performing much better than her.
  • @hazel I agree. And to be honest, I wouldn’t read too much into Fala’s HBO role because it’s actually not a major role (I should know, as I read the book the series is based on). The biggest positive with Fala’s casting is that she is playing a non-Asian character, unlike many of the big name Asian actresses in Hollywood productions who are typically cast as the token Asian or in some type of stereotypical role. I think as long as Selena doesn’t accept roles that typecast her as Asian, she has as good a chance as Fala does at succeeding in Hollywood.
  • @hazel "I did know about Fala’s HBO opportunity. Good for her, but her acting pre-Juilliard was too one dimensional so I’m interested in if she has improved or not. Sure, Juilliard has a good reputation, but we have not yet seen Fala implementing what she has learned to know if she has gotten better. " Fala Chen won a HK short film award last year. She self-directed and acted in it too. https://www.jaynestars.com/news/fala-chens-debut-short-wins-hong-kong-short-film-at-2018-sundance/ "If you’ve paid attention to her acting throughout the years, you’d know that she’s not one a dimensional actress." I've watched Selena for years. She's been in many different roles, but she only excels in one type of role hence the one-dimensional acting opinion, so let's agree to disagree. "It’s fine that you don’t like her, but I don’t think it’s fair to write her off based on her lack of acting qualifications. Her and Fala can exist in their own lanes." I am not even a Fala Chen fan, but considering that she's won a HK short film award, and landed a HBO role in Hollywood. It's unfair to compare Selena to Fala and say that she's on her level (acting-wise) when Fala has accomplished more than Selena in both academics and acting achievements. One can argue that Selena may be a better actress than Fala pre-Julliard, but definitely not in the last few years EVEN if we have not seen any of Fala's work, but Hollywood producers and directors have, and if they think she qualifies, as an audience, who are we to disqualify their judgement? They know better than most of us.
  • @anon I did know about Fala's HBO opportunity. Good for her, but her acting pre-Juilliard was too one dimensional so I'm interested in if she has improved or not. Sure, Juilliard has a good reputation, but we have not yet seen Fala implementing what she has learned to know if she has gotten better. Also, Selena should've broken out a long time ago if TVB wasn't playing favourites. If you've paid attention to her acting throughout the years, you'd know that she's not one a dimensional actress. It's fine that you don't like her, but I don't think it's fair to write her off based on her lack of acting qualifications. Her and Fala can exist in their own lanes.
  • @hazel In case you don't already know. Fala landed a major role in a HBO series. https://www.jaynestars.com/news/fala-chen-cast-in-hbo-miniseries-the-undoing-with-nicole-kidman/ In that regard, Fala is already better than Selena and everybody else at TVB. I think Selena only plays decently in one type of role, being a one dimensional actress doesn't make you a good actress. Furthermore, it seriously isn't difficult to be "one of the better actresses coming out of TVB" these days considering that TVB has little to no talent remaining.
  • @anon I respectfully disagree. She's one of the better actresses to come out of TVB and I think she'll be able to at least contend for roles with the Asian invasion happening in Hollywood right now. I'm also interested to see what comes out of Fala's opportunities considering she wasn't great in TVB.
  • @hazel Etta might have never had a chance but everyone should be able to make a life for themselves. It's highly unfortunate she looks exactly like her "dad" though. In the end she's responsible for her own (immature) actions and crying pity and getting married won't suddenly get Jackie to notice her after 20 years.
  • As cruel as this may sound, Etta should've never been born. Elaine was extremely selfish to bring her into this world, knowing Jackie's irresponsibility. Etta was never going to have a normal, healthy childhood and Elaine never could discipline her so everyone's suffering now.
  • @sherla1019 He looks kind of evil now. He wasn't the most handsome actor before, but he had this cool vibe about him. Now, he looks tired and ugly. His eyes are way sunken in.
  • @hazel GC has been annoying all this while...no secret about that. they should enjoy their baby son for as long as possible. this is the cutest stage...of course there are night feeds, injections, fever to deal with. how in the world can a 2 month old be forced to learn walking???
  • Well, she has no career now so #karma.
  • They are possibly the most annoying celebrity parents in the HK entertainment industry.
  • Didn't Kenix Kwok get involved with Chilam way back when?
  • Disappointed, but not surprised. Sammi has to forgive him to let this scandal die down, but I honestly don't see how they can rebuild their trust/marriage because of how public the scandal has gotten.
