The cast and crew of TVB’s hit drama A Fist Within Four Walls <城寨英雄> gathered together on Tuesday to celebrate the drama’s ratings success, which has reached new heights after the broadcast of the Rio Olympics.
According to TVB’s official announcement, Monday’s episode, episode 22, averaged 31 points and peaked to 32.4 points, pulling in 2.1 million viewers. That puts A Fist Within Four Walls to have the highest-rated episode for a serial drama this year.
Friends Comment on Alleged Birth of Linda Chung’s Baby
Tuesday’s celebratory banquet for Four Walls coincided with the rumor that Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) has already delivered her baby in Vancouver earlier this week. Four Walls lead stars Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Philip Ng (伍允龍), and Grace Wong (王君馨), who are all close with Linda, have offered their congratulations.
Ruco said with a laugh, “You can’t still call her my rumored girlfriend! That was ages ago!” Ruco and Linda were rumored to have had good feelings for each other while they collaborated in Brother’s Keeper <巨輪> and All That is Bitter is Sweet <大藥坊> a few years ago.
In regards to Linda’s mysterious and low-profile approach with her pregnancy, Ruco said, “It’s good to be mysterious! It would be a surprise for everyone!” (Will you buy a present for her?) “That’s a good idea. I’ll have to see if it’s a boy or a girl first. Or maybe it’s twins?”
When speaking about rumored girlfriends, Ruco shared that a fortune teller told him that his future girlfriend has already showed up, and that she’s been around his life for the past two years. “She better appear soon!” he said.
Close friend Grace Wong said, “She’ll definitely want three more [children] because she wants to have all four heavenly kings. I’ve volunteered to be their godmother. I’ll be visiting her in September. I don’t know how to take care of babies, but I have no problem when it comes to cooking or grocery shopping!”
Former boyfriend Philip Ng, who dated Linda for a number of years, said, “We chatted on the phone not along ago.” (Will you call her again to ask about the baby?) “She needs her rest first.”
Philip admitted that he wants to start a family of his own, but hasn’t met the right one yet. Reporters pointed out his rumors with costar Moon Lau (劉佩玥), and said Moon was spotted bringing Philip to dinner with her friends. Philip said, “I have many female friends who bring me along to friend gatherings. We’re not dating.” (But will there be this possibility in the future?) “I don’t know, but right now we are only friends.”
Nancy Wu Tells Ex Kenneth Ma to Work Hard
Four Walls lead actress Nancy Wu (胡定欣) said she’s been looking forward to this celebratory banquet for three weeks, and hopes that the ratings for Four Walls will continue to increase throughout the week.
Nancy and Ruco will team up again for TVB’s upcoming grand production The Alliance <同盟>, which will also be an action drama. Rumors say that Nancy’s ex boyfriend, Kenneth Ma (馬國明), was meant to be the drama’s male lead, but he was replaced by Ruco last minute. Kenneth denied this in an interview, saying that he was never approached for the role.
Nancy does not mind collaborating with her ex-boyfriend, and said, “As long as [Kenneth] is still with TVB, we will have the opportunity to work together.” (Kenneth said you already won TV Queen so you don’t need to work so hard anymore! Find a boyfriend!) “Who’s going to take care of the family? My career has just started. I will work hard in both my career and in finding my other half. He needs to work hard too. I hope he’ll find a good girlfriend!”
