• Yoyo Chan always acted quite well when she was young, but she had a lazy intonation in speaking her dialogues. Now she has got rid of it, but she is a bit old vs. those young and pretty actresses in TVB. However, I still think TVB should give her a chance to move up to 1st lead roles. If Samantha Ko could do it, Yoyo Chan should be able to do it too.
  • @cutie777 Gillian's dress was her school uniform - cheung sam. A lot of Christian (especially Anglican) schools' uniforms in Hong Kong are cheung sam (a traditional Chinese dress for ladies).
  • Cecilia Cheung was the only pretty child when she was young. The others, such as Charlene Choi, Gillian Chung, Louisa Mak, did not look too different from her current looks. However, I cannot recognize some of them from their childhood photos, such as Crystal Fung, Shiga Lin, and JW. They totally looked different when they were young, without make-ups and/or plastic surgery.
  • @orchid123 she was very good in supporting but I think she got handed rubbish roles when she became lead. Not to mention the overall quality of dramas were on the decline anyway.
  • @cutie777 You know why. Ali Lee is pretty while Nancy Wu isn't (at least to me). Nancy is just decent looking, but not the pretty type. Personally, I think Ali has a good built (even on the skinny side) and she looks good in any types of outfits, esp the fashionable ones, but Nancy is really too skinny. Ali has aura and charisma to be a 1st lead actress, but she needs to improve on her acting. Nancy acts better, but she may not be good in any types of roles as a 1st lead actress. I used to like Nancy Wu's acting in the past, but she was in supporting roles. After she got promoted to act 1st lead roles, I had not found a good drama series that she did.
  • @orchid123 If it weren't for COVID-19 further rattling the HK film industry, I think Nancy may have left TVB as she was rumored to be in talks with Louis Koo's film company. Former TVB artistes who left have signed with Shaw Brothers, but the studio's web drama output has only been a few projects, or gone to work in ViuTV dramas. For its marketing muscle, TVB may be the best option for Nancy right now.
  • Nancy Wu has made a right decision to renew her contract with TVB due to the current instability of film industries in Hong Kong. Moreover, Nancy Wu is just a decent actress, and not an amazing one. Her roles are not as broad as some pretty actresses who are good in both looks and acting, and she is not young any more. Agreed that Nancy did not seem to have a memorable role after she became a 1st lead actress. She did a lot better when she was in her supporting roles.
  • For Kenneth Ma, I would say that any girl is better than Jacqueline Wong. Kenneth surely deserves someone else. Congratulations to Kenneth Ma.
  • I liked Chen Yukee in " Heavenly Sword and Dragon Slaying Sabre" very much. She was the best artiste in that drama series, not because of her beauty, but because of her good acting. Her eyes were telling stories in every scene. Chen Yukee's acting as Zhao Min made me understand why Zhang Wuji eventually chose her as his partner/wife. I could not understand why Adam Cheung (as Zhang Wuji) chose Liza Wang (as Zhao Min) in the end of the series filmed by TVB in 1978.
  • Condolences to Felix Wong and his daughter. Leung Kit Wah, rest in peace.
  • @sehseh I have the same feeling. No guys like to have their children named after their mothers only.
  • Timing is very important to an artiste. Selina Lee and Vivian Yeo both joined TVB when they had a lot of other pretty actresses, such as Fala Chen, Myolie Wu, Linda Chung, Kate Tsui, and Tavia Yeung, etc. It was TVB's policy to promote an actress in 1 to 2 drama series to test waters. If that actress could not get good ratings in those 2 series, TVB would abandon her. TVB always put the focus on a few actresses and named them "Fadans", and the rest of the actresses would stay as 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th line artistes. However, since all the top fadans and more prominent actresses left a few years ago, TVB did not have any reliable actresses to concentrate on casting, their new policy now is to promote many with the hope to keep some in future. New artistes in TVB now are much luckier. Lots of them get decent roles, or even lead roles to act, such as Kelly Cheung, Crystal Fung, Sisley Choi, etc.
  • @jimmyszeto Among the non-Cantonese speaking actresses listed above, Fala Chen was the first one to get rid of her Mandarin accents to concentrate on her acting. She was, of course, the best among the group. Rebecca Zhu is getting better in both accents and acting. Hope she will be another Fala Chen. Vivian Yeo is pretty, but she took too long to get rid of her accents to work on her acting. She has got a lot better in recent years, but she is also a lot older now. Eliza still has some accents. Her acting is pretty bland. Leanne and Christine just cannot act, though both are very pretty.
  • @jayne That is what I think. If they were divorced, at least his wife could keep 1/2 of their assets.
  • @orchid123 meh, a lot of time babies can be ugly when they are little and grow up to be a swan and vice versus. Who cares lol. They finally have a bundle of joy, let’s cheer to that :) comes what may :) especially during this time :)
  • Based on the above photo, it is very hard to tell if the baby girl is pretty or not. All babies are cute and sweet when they are born. Perhaps we can tell a bit more when their baby girl is 2 or 3 months old. Since they wanted to have a baby so badly, it is always good for them to have one of their own. Congratulations to both of them!
  • @mike I did not like Jacky Cheung's singing at all. It was way too casual. The recording was terrible and I could not hear much. One of Eason's songs was decent, not the one when he sang and played piano. I guess their efforts and honours in participating in the global virtual concert counted, not their voices. Wish they had done a better job in their performance in the same concert with other great singers like Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Elton John, John Legend, Jennifer Lopez, etc.
  • @orchid123 Tavia was pretty before her nose grew out of control. It's sad
  • @wm2017 I never found Tavia Yeung pretty. There is no comparison between Charmaine Shen and Tavia Yeung. Not even at the same level in terms of look and acting. Charmaine may not be the best actress from TVB, but she is a lot better than many others of her generation.
  • @orchid123 I don’t read Chinese but this is another evidence of the Chinese government trying to blame the US army bringing the virus into their country whereas it’s actually originated from their own country & people.
