Chow Yun Fat: “It’s Time for Bosco Wong”

Chow Yun Fat (周潤發) has been closely watching Bosco Wong’s (黃宗澤) career, expressing that he believes it is time for Bosco to shine.

In an interview conducted in Beijing, Chow Yun Fat revealed his thoughts about TVB, the station where he first debuted as an actor in the 1970s. He has been closely following the productions of TVB, asserting that he would usually try staying up at night to watch TVB’s prime time dramas if time allows.

On which stars Chow Yun Fat believes that the audience should watch out for, he immediately named Moses Chan (陳豪), Vincent Wong ( 王浩信), and Raymond Wong (黃浩然). He also said,  “Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華) has already become a legend… and Bosco Wong (黃宗澤). It’s about time for him to move out [of TVB]. Michael Tse (謝天華) has already moved out. There actually aren’t many [TVB] siu sangs nowadays.”

Chow Yun Fat, who debuted as a TVB television actor, added that it is not an easy task to move from television to film. “These things require a lot of time to adjust, especially when you’ve been in the television industry for a really long time.”

As long as there is a good script with a good schedule, Chow Yun Fat said he would be glad to return to TVB to film a television drama. Although there are still many challenges that the Hong Kong television industry has to face due to its limited market, Chow Yun Fat will continue to support TVB in the future.

Still Interested in Hollywood 

Chow Yun Fat has starred in numerous international Hollywood films through the years, including Anna and the KingBulletproof Monk, and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, but in the last few years, Chow Yun Fat retreated from the Hollywood scene to star in lesser-scale films. This weekend, Chow Yun Fat’s two Hong Kong films, The Monkey King <西遊記之大鬧天宮> and From Vegas to Macau <賭城風雲>, will be competing each other at the box office. 

Despite his break from the global scene, Chow Yun Fat is still interested in filming for Hollywood when the opportunity arises. “You’re always learning something and going through new experiences with different people. Filming for [Hollywood] has been quite unforgettable because you get to see the differences in production. I benefit from these experiences every time.”

Though Chow Yun Fat has lived in the United States and mainland China for some time in the past, his permanent home had always been in Hong Kong. “If grew up here. I am used to the food and lifestyle. The only time when I go to the mainland or the United States is when I’m working.”

Currently 58 years old, Chow Yun Fat said he has no desire to retire. He said, “If there is a day when I will forget my dialogue and impede everyone’s schedule, then I will stop acting.”

    Yahh I agree with Fat Gor. I’ve just completed Coffee Cat Mama Bosco is very good to watch. Get out of TVB already man, TVB is mostly like some cheapo high school play with guaranteed TVB staple audiences, movies will give him more challenge to grow up!

      Agreed. I do see that Bosco has potential to become a TV Series to film actor, but I sort of doubt he would go to the film industry since he needs to manage his Oyster restaurant business and his got so many properties already. A bit too much for him to handle!

    Wow, Vincent Wong ( 王浩信) must be honoured to be named by Chow Yun Fat. He noticed those TVB actors with good acting. Vincent will be thrilled when he reads this article (or listens to Chow Yun Fat’s interview). I agree that even Vincent is only a supporting actor, his acting is good vs. those 1st lead actors. He should highly be promoted by TVB to act 1st lead roles.

    After reading the on.cc source I found that this article missed Steven Ma and has no Michael Tse. What did he actually said in the video? Has Steven or not?

    發哥又論盡無綫多位當家小生,表示睇好陳豪、馬浚偉、黃宗澤(Bosco)、Bobby(歐陽震華)及黃浩然等,更點名力讚Bosco有望今年彈出:「嗰個阿澤(黃宗澤)都係時候出嚟啦!TVB剩番小生唔係咁多,喺電視係要好長時間浸淫架!」而發嫂則力撐被掌摑出位的「飛躍男」王浩信。

    Bosco and Vincent has promising future due to their good looks and prime age. The others are pretty much already old.

        Thanks. That means Chow Yun Fat mentioned Bosco, Bincent, RW, Bobby, Moses and Michael. I think the On.cc article accidentally swapped Steven’s name for Michael. It must be awkward if Steven and Fatt Gor if they read the article.

    Bosco is def one of the few better actors of his generation in the company….honestly he’s too talented but I have a feeling he won’t leave the company. He enjoys the filming environment in HK, he’s also filming for Mainland and films. You can tell he actually has a passion for what he does, it’s a shame he’s underrated compared to the other actors in his generation but it’s nice to know he’s recognized for his talent.

      He can still be in movies and act in series. I have noticed many veteran actors who used to act in movies when they were younger go back to series. I am sure if Bosco stays in the circle then he will definitely continue to film series.

    I believe that Bosco does acting as a passion instead of using it as his source of earning money. He have a business mind and ventures out like opening his own business and buying properties. Therefore he is comfortable with filming for tvb and some mainland dramas. His goal is not to keep filming just to get an award (although that would be good) He is an actor who is well balanced.

    CYF is a tvb fan. he’s like of those housewives when he’s not working.

    IT HAS NEVER BEEN BOSCO TIME AND WILL NEVER BE.

    1) bad looking compared to korean, taiwanese, and mainland chinese stars
    2) average actor at best
    3) bad singer
    4) getting older…
    5) has grey hair..j/k

    This is the same CYF who said Sammy Shum has great potential…

    WHO IS PAYING HIM TO SAY ALL OF THESE CRAP?! TVB!

      agree donkeykong i also suspect that tvb paid chow yun fat to say all these stuff to make tvb look good! face it i respect chow but recent years his movies no longer box office hits after his failure in hollywood which forced him to come back to mainland and hk so it’s sad that now he’s affiliated with tvb and try to make tvb look good. come on look at the ratings of coffee cat don’t even reach 30 point!

      i rather take wong jing opinion because at least that guy makes sense and looks at current audience choice trend and who are the current tvb stars! wong jing believes that ma ming is the tvb siu sang that will be successful to be movie star! fully support!

        Sorry but Wong Jing’s films is heavily based on sex appeal that’s some cheap semi porno, he hasn’t made a good film for over 10 years besides he said he doesn’t care about reviews of his movies rather than the profit….not really a guy to reference for acting abilities at all.

        @bobby and chow is no better. he’s an actor not a director or producer! what makes him think he know who is great or not!

        wong jing’s opinion as a producer and director sure has more credibility and don’t bring his movies here! wong jing know that ma ming has the audience fate with his acting and that’s why audience love him a lot!

        Lol you’re hilarious, so just because he’s an actor he can’t tell who can act or not? Even as audiences we can tell like you praising Kenneth is great while degrading Bosco, you’re judging as well at least Chow Yun Fat has a better expertise than you do. Honestly if Wong Jing were to praise Bosco instead of Kenneth and CYF did the opposite of that you would of switched roles and say how WJ is wrong this and that.

        Yeah the audiences loves him because they want to see him as a future category 3 star…those will sure get him the attention the audience wants at least that’s what you’re suggesting.

        JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE A GREAT ACTOR DOESN’T MEAN U ARE A GREAT TALENT EVALUATOR…

        Saying Michael Jordon is the best basketball player you’ve obviously lost a lot of respect there. Don’t speak of things you have no knowledge of. Wilt Chamberlain can take MJ any day.

        Like I said every artiste had bad projects but it doesn’t mean he’s not a good actor. Many artiste are really talented but they choose to be a part of really bad movies. There is a difference between talent and ability.

        Michael Jordon is just a symbol of one of many America’s well known sports player but it doesn’t necessarily means he’s the best one, who is the best? Which is why it’s safe not to label someone in that term.

        Fat Gor may not be a director or producer, but his status in the HK entertainment industry is unquestionable and his opinions matter more than anything anyone else in the industry says. Like it or not, that’s reality — so have some respect and stop spurting your hate on people when it’s unwarranted!!

        @HTS: I guess selfiwu either doesn’t know or doesn’t remember that Fat Gor praised one of selfiwu’s idols, Myolie Wu, in the past as well, saying that she’s a good, hardworking actress and he wouldn’t mind working with her again. So since Fat Gor’s words have no credibility according to selfiwu and so his ‘praise’ shouldn’t count, then I guess that means Myolie is a horrible actress and it’s a shame that Fat Gor wants to work with her again.

        @selfiwu: Oh, and by the way, please do your homework before you speak garbage in these forums because you’re just making yourself look like a fool. Anyone who even remotely follows HK entertainment news knows what kind of affinity Chow Yun Fat still has for TVB and that he always says nice things about them — so the fact that anyone would suggest TVB paying him off is absolutely ludicrous. And why does he have to lick TVB’s boot? Do you even know what you’re talking about? If so, please back up your comment with an argument that makes sense. Or are you just piggy-backing off of someone else’s comment and don’t have an opinion of your own?

        If Fat Gor really cared about licking TVB’s boot, he wouldn’t have supported giving TV licenses to the other stations. Back when the whole TV license thing was at its height, he also said good things about the other TV stations supported them getting licenses (he even praised Ricky Wong for having the heart to invest so much money in the television industry)….not only that, he also criticized the government for the way they handled the matter — all of this is opposite of TVB’s stance on the matter and by saying everything he did, he was essentially going against TVB.

        So basically — explain to me how Chow Yun Fat praising TVB’s artists is considered ‘bootlicking’ or being ‘paid off’ to do it.

      Hmm I beg to differ, Bosco is a pretty versatile actor. A majority of his roles he did pretty well, singing? He’s alright nothing great but not terrible besides a majority of those who sings in TVB are a joke. I actually think Bosco seems to more good looking as he ages compare to Ron, Kenneth and Raymond anyways;especially Ron that guy look like he hasn’t slept in 10 years, shame though he was considered one of the good looking ones but the time has passed for him.

      No one is paying anyone anything, your opinion seems a bit biased though.

        Eliza is definitely not a bad actor, she’s getting there. Nancy is better off supporting, she can act sure but she doesn’t possess that leading star ability.

        I personally think that if Gloria Tang does well in her first drama, she will also be promoted along with Jacqueline, Tracy, Eliza, etc.

        I do hope to see more of Rebecca’s acting. I really like her in Always and Ever!

        eliza is the only one that really has been promoted heavily by tvb thus far. i think tracey chu,grace chan and sisley choi also has a good chance to be tvb’s new-generation top fadan.compare to the tvb’s young siu san there is not really much talent that i can say wow here is the new louis ko or andy lau.

        I know you cant understand tat because you have to fight against me as I dont like your precious Ma Ming. Tat’s wat I call a sore loser. Selfiwu is also one, as she bashed Fat Gor just because he praised Bosco without mentioning a word to Ma Ming. LMAO, wat’s up with you guys? I still suggest you to write blood letter to tell everyone to say something about Ma Ming.

        You guys cant accept your precious Ma Ming is bashed? Then perhaps you should be hypocrite more to stop bashing any artist (specially point Nyn and MW). I wont be tat hypocrite so sorry, I dun join with you.

        If you wanna track the box office of Baby Blues to see it topped the chart of horror Chinese movies, feel free to find. Lolz, I know you will feel hurt.

        Sfw is a hardcore crazy fan and hater but you are the same. That’s why I said pot (u) meet kettle (sfw). Match made in heaven. There’s the saying in Cantonese “words with bones”, that’s your specialty. Sfw just comes out bashing like a crazy person. Can’t figure out which is worst because both arè just as pathetic to me.

He is entitled to his opinion like everyone else; his opinion doesn’t represent the general audience. So what if he thinks those guys he mentioned are the ones to watch out for? It doesnt mean others have to agree with him. There are some of those he mentioned whose acting don’t appeal to me at all.

I am always in agreement wt fox as the counter explanation towards selfiwu made a lot of sense and is exactly what I woud say. It is apparent tht selfiwu hate bosco, love myolie and ma ming.

      Eh. A lot of good actors/filmmakers have unflattering resumes. Just look at the United States. Some of the absolute best actors are on cable television over here. But they can’t seem to branch out into bigger roles. Many movie stars can’t act in the US. They’re just good-looking. And it does mean something to be praised and respected by a peer. In Britain and US, being praised by a legend in their craft is an honor. It’s great. Many talented actors just take roles for the paycheck. So that argument doesn’t really hold. Hell, Ang Lee made the Incredible Hulk movie. I’m sure if you think hard enough, you can come up with at least a few more. That’s the life of an actor or filmmaker. That’s the business.

      Obviously, DonkeyKong, you have a clouded judgement, which you will clearly deny and get offended. And then you’ll rant in all capital letters. Try to put things into perspective.

    With all due respect to Addy, writer):not to nitpick but our interpretations of the passage below are so different that we have a completely different take on its meaning.

    Jaynestars
    “And Bosco Wong (黃宗澤). It’s about time for him to move out [of TVB]…There actually aren’t many [TVB] siu sangs nowadays.”

    Chow Yun Fat, who debuted as a TVB television actor, added that it is not an easy task to move from television to film. “These things require a lot of time to adjust, especially when you’ve been in the television industry for a really long time.”

    I would translate 出嚟 as “move ahead / pull ahead /to emerge/ to come out [of the pack in TVB]” instead of “move out [of TVB]”

    Given Fat gor’s tact, he would never ever so blatantly and publicly urge a tvb actor to leave tvb, period.

    My translation of the original sentence (below) vs Jaynestars’.

    And Bosco, it’s time for him to lead / emerge (to move ahead/pull ahead of the pack). TVB’s remaining siu sangs aren’t that many anyway. True, (one) has to soak/steep/stew for a long time in television.”

    • sandcherry replied:

      You know why? It is because Chow Yun Fat is not a marital arts actor. It seems that only Chinese martial arts (or Koon Fu) actors are sales-box actors in Hollywood. Jet Li, Jacky Chan, Donnie Yen, Hung Kam-Bo, etc. are all martial arts actors. Or we should say that only artistes, who are good in martial arts, could get popular in U.S.A.

      • llwy12 replied:

        Agree with sandcherry. The whole Hollywood craze with martial arts goes back to the Bruce Lee days and unfortunately, as much as we may not like it, that has been the ‘stereotype’ that Hollywood continues to have towards Chinese actors. Sure, close to none of Fat Gor’s Hollywood movies were appealing, but at the very least, he did try to ‘branch out’ and make different genres of films (i.e. Anna and the King, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.) instead of purely sticking with action movies or the traditional martial arts — for that, I give him credit.

        And I completely disagree with one of the posters above who tried to claim that Fat Gor has no credibility or is a bad actor just because none of his Hollywood movies ‘made it’ in Hollywood. Fat Gor is a HK actor first and foremost, so to me, his HK movies are truly the ‘defining’ movies of his career. Besides, every actor has their career highs and lows — it’s a natural occurrence in the industry and it’s not necessarily a reflection of their acting. It’s impossible to expect every single actor to have 100% flawless career and not make a single ‘bad’ movie or series — that doesn’t happen in the real world, which leads me to wonder what those people are thinking (the ones who claim that someone is a bad actor just because they had a handful of works that flopped, despite the fact that the large majority of their works were successes).
