Before the broadcast of Young and Dangerous: Reloaded <古惑仔: 江湖新秩序>, most people have only heard of Sammy Shum (沈震軒) due to his relationship with JJ Jia (賈曉晨). The 29-year old TVB artist was brought to the audience’s attention with his fresh villain role in the film, and this year can be seen as the continuation of a promising future in the movie industry.

Sammy has signed a contract with Paco Wong’s (黃柏高) Sun Entertainment Culture, becoming a highly promoted artist along with Fiona Sit (薛凱琪) and Hanjin Tan (陳奂仁). Sammy is signed for three films, and he will also be singing the theme songs. Paco was impressed by Sammy after seeing his photos and found out he can also sing. Paco said, “He is definitely the one to promote!” As to whether Sammy will have a chance to release his own music album, that will have to depend upon the market response.

In addition, Sammy was also nominated for Best New Performer in the 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards. Although the winner remains unknown, Sammy expressed, “Being nominated is already like receiving the award for me. I don’t have an affinity for awards, so I’ll take it naturally!”

Sammy immigrated to Canada when he was in high school. In 2005, he returned to Hong Kong and participated in the New Talent Singing Awards, in which he made it into the top 5 at the semi-finals. In 2009, Sammy enrolled himself in the TVB Artist Training Program. Since then, he acted as a host for a variety show and had cameo roles in dramas.

In May this year, Sammy will start filming for director Patrick Kong’s (葉念琛) new romantic movie. Sammy and TVB actress, Angel Chiang (蔣家旻), will act as leads in Movie’s First Was Not Yours <電影第一次不是你>. First time as lead, Sammy revealed his excitement. “I like to watch television and movies. As a newcomer, I’m really happy to be able to film a movie this fast. I feel really lucky to be able to have such achievement after 5 years in the industry. Maybe it’s because I came from the training class and started off onscreen as a dead body or soldier, so I really treasure every chance I get.”

As a hardworking individual, Sammy aims for his best so that he gets every opportunity possible. “I don’t like getting 100 percent, but rather 120 percent. I need to be well-prepared myself in order to have a next time. It’s just like when I was being a guest for a kids’ show. It was unexpected that a gold manager became interested in me.”

    finally patrick kong realizes that him law can’t act and alex fong is a has been?

    good for sammy shum! i bet he will win more awards and become more successful than the likes of raymond lam who is only in huge movies because virginia lok personally made raymond wong backing him with his company pegasus rather than depending on his declining acting skills! it’s open secret in hk entertainment circle!

      LMAO~, Raymond Wong said the different things to your statement. Here is what Raymond Wong has said: “TVB denied to release him (LF). Every year I have to fight with TVB to have him (LF) and this year I won, so I can’t possibly tell him not to film TVB series”

      It means Raymond Wong himself wants LF and fights with TVB to have LF, not that TVB pulls LF to Raymond Wong. It was said by Raymond Wong himself, can’t be twisted :P.

      So your open secret is simply yours, can’t affect anyone else. Poor you.

      Sammy is much better and more handsome than talentless idols Him Law and Lam Fung who only attracted girl fans with their idol images. Don’t bother pitting them together.

        Fully agree. What is Him’s talent? He only has a muscular built and always topless to show off his giant chest. Euewww. Sammy here is a triple threat who can act, sing and dance excellently. He’s like talented in everything.

        Raymond Lam is old. He should stop pretending to be young with his Choksta line and act his age.

        May I notice you guys that this article isn’t related to both of LF and Him Law? So don’t bother to mention of them or you are missing/loving them too much.

      can someone just summarize this story between LF and Raymond Wong? I don’t understand what u guyz are talking about. So you’re saying that RW is friends with LF and is trying to take him back from Mainland China?

        Not Raymond Wong the Txb actor. Raymond Wong here is Raymond Wong Pak Ming the boss of Pegasus media company. Raymond Wong fights with Txb to have LF in his movies and this year he said he won hence LF wont film Txb series to film movies for Raymond Wong’s Pegasus. On the other hand, Raymond Wong complained that Txb dun agree to release LF to do functions for his movies, such as Saving general Yang. It means Raymond Wong chose LF himself, not that Txb “helped”.

    Romantic movie? Isn’t it about time HK makes its own superhero movie with so many jademan or whatever you call it comics out there? I can see Sammy as some lonesome kungfu fighter with an attitude. He needs to bulk up first though.

      I think Sammy looks better with a lanky frame. Leave the muscles to that no talent Him Law.

    I agree Sammy has great potential but I feel like leading in Patrick Kong’s movie aren’t exactly going to get him far, see Alex Fong.

    I much rather Sammy follow Gordon Lam’s footsteps, taking the smaller roles to further develop his potentials before jumping into male lead role.

    There’s no denying his affinity with the audience or his handsome looks …

      Alex Fong is quite well known in Hk and he’s filmed a few series in mainland. He is quite popular.

      Alex Fong is not a good example of career not going far. He’s actually more successful than many actors and his pairing with Stephy Tang in Patrick Kong’s movies bring them a lot of popularity. He also has chance to participate in some big budget movies like that movie about cyborg starring many stars.

    I wish Sammy Shum success! I really liked him ever since his first role. Sure, he’s good-looking but more importantly, he’s really hard-working and talented. He’ll make it far. Or at least I hope so.
