5 New Actors to Look Out for at TVB
Who will be the most memorable among the graduates of the 29th Artistes’ Training Class?
For every year since 1971, TVB has been holding an artistes’ training class which has nurtured many superstars. The most notable entertainers it has produced include 1974’s Chow Yun Fat (周潤發) from the third training class, director Johnny To (杜琪峰) from the fourth training class, Andy Lau (劉德華) from the tenth training class and not forgetting Tony Leung (粱朝偉) and Stephen Chow (周星馳) from the eleventh training class. However, since 2015 the class stopped accepting public applications and recruited insiders instead. Public recruitment in 2017 resumed again for its 29th training class. Let’s take a look at male graduates from the class who have started appearing on television screens!
- The One With the Most Acting Potential? Felix Ng (吳子沖), 29
The 6-feet-1-inch tall actor graduated from The Open University of Hong Kong majoring in social sciences, and had already started modelling part-time in his student days. He won the “Most Good-looking Male Varsity Student Contest” in 2013, and in that same year set up an online fashion business (which has since folded) with his then-girlfriend Kayan Choi (蔡嘉欣), a social influencer who is also a contestant in this year’s Miss Hong Kong contest.
Among the graduates of the training class, Felix has had the most acting opportunities so far, perhaps due to his suitability in portraying both masculine and hunky characters as well as melancholic roles. He has appeared in Come Home Love: Lo and Behold <愛．回家之開心速遞>, Who Wants A Baby? <BB來了>, Fist Fight <兄弟>, The Defected <鐵探> and Big White Duel <白色強人>. Catch him next in Al Cappuccino <極道怪咖>, The Exorcist’s Meter 2.0 <降魔的0> and Flying Tiger 2 <飛虎之雷霆極戰>.
- The Musically Talented: Patrick Leung (梁百川)
With a resemblance to TVB actor Joey Law (羅天宇), Patrick’s social media showcases his versatile musical talents, which includes playing the piano, drums and guitar. He also dabbles in singing and songwriting. The actor has starred in OMG Your Honour <是咁的，法官閣下>. Watch out for him in Girlie Days <她她她的少女時代> and The Man Who Kills Troubles <解決師>.
- The Fitness Buff: Anthony Chow (鄒兆霆)
Anthony Chow (鄒兆霆) enjoys training at the gym, cooking, playing outdoor sports, and taking care of his pets. He has starred in dramas and hosted variety program Once Upon A Time in Tiny Hong Kong <我們香港變幻時>. Describing himself as a “personal trainer”, he has been working hard on acquiring a muscular build. Would his clean-cut looks and hunky bod appeal to viewers?
4.The Advertisers’ Darling – Terence Siu (邵展鵬)
Terence has shot many commercials and also starred in the yet-to-air Amelia’s Rhapsody <愛美麗狂想曲>, Cyber Fraud <網絡騙案> and The Man Who Kills Troubles <解決師>. He played one of the male leads in the small-budget film Impossible Is Possible <舞可能>. His main interests are watching movies and travelling, while ice skating, archery and hurdling are his strengths.
- The Unabashed Metrosexual – Antonio Ng (吳天佑)
Passionate about professional make-up, 26-year-old Antonio Ng (吳天佑) wanted to be a make-up artist for celebrities. He is the only young male host on the program Big City Shop <流行都市>. After graduating from the artistes’ training class, Antonio’s striking looks and muscular build have earned him cameo appearances in Come Home Love: Lo and Behold, the yet-to-be-aired Agent C9 <C9特工>, and Airport Strikers <機場特警>. The dog lover has three french bulldogs for whom he has set up an Instagram account for, and even brings his beloved pets to work. His interests include training at the gym, fashion and Japanese culture.
