• @xrc56 Not necessarily. If LW3 gets Best actor for LF and maybe some other my favourites awards, Best Drama could go to another major production. Ofc it's still too early to tell if Death By Zero has a good story to be in the running. @scre yeah Shaun is out of luck despite basically having a breakthrough role in BY. Generally tvb is always late at awarding their artistes. Also why tf are they airing Sammy and Priscilla's drama at primetime? It alrdy aired overseas so long ago and honestly one of those waste of resources filler drama
  • @xrc56 I love Raymond! Deric is a natural in being the bad guy in Looking Back in Anger & The Breaking Point. His acting is honestly great. I didnt watch many of Tony Leung's dramas, but he caught my eye in The Grand Canal!
  • @xrc56 with such a strong cast, I really hope it lives up to expectations.
  • @bubbles23 Best drama sure is Line Walker 3 la. Will pawn all drama of this year.
  • @luye i dont even find tony leung and deric wan were good in their early days. Just that good looking. Experiences need time to gain. Only Raymond lam is successful as a young male lead so far.
  • @xrc56 I agree that experience improves someone's acting. Back in the day for ex, Tony Leung, Deric Wan etc were given lead roles during their early 20s. However, i dont remember the last drama where TVB had a young male lead.
  • @luye Certain actors really only can shine after decades of experiences like wayne lai and frankie lam. You see frankie lam really good acting at older age on current drama.
  • @xrc56 Rebecca mentioned during the interview that they would rehearse the scene beforehand & there was no kissing. However, once they started to record, Tony would kiss her & that surprised her caught her off guard. It's so unprofessional of Tony because how are you going to do something different from rehearsal without informing your partner?
  • @xrc56 Dude, when you can't argue logic, you go with insults. In Hong Kong, marital rape is criminalize. A simple Google search finds that "Section 117(1B) of the Crimes Ordinance, introduced in 2002, states that 'unlawful sexual intercourse (非法性交、非法的性交) does not exclude sexual intercourse that a man has with his wife'" Even if it isn't illegal, it is still not right that a spouse can rape another. Sometimes the law has not caught up with morality. Back to this case, accepting to play a wife in a drama, does not give blanket consent to all forms of touching, no matter how slight it may seem to you. It does not have to escalate to the level of touching the breast, although unwanted kissing is not that far off. Her body is hers, if she says she does not want that type of touching, he needs to respect it. It does not matter if that type of touch is okay to you, or Tony or any other Tom, Duck and Harry or MarySue, it is her consent. And no, publicly cheating like Jacqueline is not the same as wanting your body respected. If a director does not want to hire someone because they expect their colleagues to respect their consent, then that speaks more to the morality of the director. This case does not mean she never wants to do kissing scenes or bed scenes, it just means she wants her acting partner to discuss them and respect her consent.
  • @potatochip Please stop showing your ignorance by putting marital rape into the situation. In most Asian countries, there is no such thing as marital rape. I did not say one kiss in one scene= all kiss for all scenes. But that is not sexual harassment because you definitely do not know what are the elements of sexual harassment. Tony hung's intention to kiss her is to create a realistic feeling between viewers and characters in a story as a husband and wife. The moment you accepted the drama to portray as someone’s wife, bodily contact is expectable. Unless it’s too over and severe like touching your breast or slapping ur butt. The judge will analyze whether it's appropriate or not under such circumstances in the field of filming even if you want to bring the case into the court. But rest assure no directors will find you for any projects anymore and you will end up the same fate as Jacqualine.
  • @xrc56 No, giving consent for one kiss in one scene does not give a blanket consent for all scenes. That's why a professional actor reviews each scene ahead of time and checks his partner's comfort level and how they would like to play it. It's the same reasoning with marital rape. Entering a contract of marriage does not equal a blanket consent of sex anytime a spouse wants.
  • @luye You definitely do not know what are the elements of sexual harassment. Tony hung kissed her is to create a real connection between viewers and characters in a story as a husband and wife. The moment you accepted the drama to portray as someone's wife, bodily contact is expectable. Unless it's too over and severe like touching your breast or slapping ur butt @@. The judge will analyze whether is it appropriate under such circumstances in the field of filming. And most importantly TVB never agreed with the allegations or else Tony would have been frozen because they will judge his overall character as well in the company.
  • @potatochip It depends on the actor and actress's relationship in the drama. They were acting as husband and wife. So the kissing scene is something logical and needed to create real feelings. Same like football bodily contact is expectable. The consent is within the contract signed by her. Ask her to show you the contract. And his intention is to create a real connection between viewers and characters in a story
  • @xrc56 "maybe Tony concentrated portraying her husband & was too happy too kiss her. Just give benefit of the doubt" I hope you realize that this is what goes through a victim's mind after being sexually assaulted. They think of a lot of excuses to comprehend what just happened. This is the mindset that leads to a lot of people getting away with sexual harassment. Why make excuses for someone when all they had to do was ask for consent before making someone else feel uncomfortable? Rebecca is obviously unhappy & uncomfortable, and Tony is responsible for what happened.
  • @xrc56 No, this is not comparable to sports. In football, you are expected to get hurt. In acting, you are not required to do or have things done with your body without consent. How do you define consent?
  • @oystergirl you have to accept it girl. If you little bit then complains like crazy to the media, you won't go far in your career. Maybe Tony hung was too concentrate portraying as her husband and too happy to kiss her at that moment. Just give him the benefit of doubt. She should settle it privately with tony hung. No need to openly bad-mouth your own colleague in such away.
  • @potatochip Invalid analogy. I forgot what is the law name, but you cannot be charged for the assault in sports like football or filming.
  • @xrc56 “If it’s Andy Lau(young version)/Raymond lam/Matthew, I am sure she won’t complain like this.” Lol, so if you allow a man you like to kiss you, then you have to accept when other random men kiss you as well? Do you see how ridiculous that sounds? Being an actor doesn’t mean you get a free pass to go around kissing/touching costars whenever you feel like it, and they just have to suck it up.
  • @potatochip yes, it's simply consent. @xrc56 as i said in my previous comment, I’m pretty sure Rebecca wouldnt complain if she was told beforehand. She said Tony did it without tellin her and that's not OK how do you know she wouldnt complain if it was andy raymond or matthew?
  • @xrc56 Here is an analogy. What if Tony stole $1000 from her? If she gave Andy Lau or Raymond or Matthew $1000, does it make Tony taking $1000 from her okay? No. Consent. It's not that complicated.
