Having achieved success early on in his singing career, one controversial statement against fellow singer, Juno Mak (麥浚龍), in 2003 caused Edwin Siu’s (蕭正楠) career to plummet. Although he experienced his lowliest days, he made a successful comeback as an actor at TVB. When recalling the rough times, Edwin smilingly recalled that, despite the drawback, he was fortunately able to seek peace and tranquility and has matured from the incident.
Today, Edwin enjoys success in both his acting career as well as his publicized romance with fellow actress, Priscilla Wong (黃翠如). When reflecting on the year of 2014, Edwin proclaims that his greatest reward was falling in love with Priscilla after filming Madam Cutie on Duty <師奶Madam>. “Unlike many female actresses who cannot withstand hardships or who focus too much on beauty, she is a very simple girl. I always see her without makeup and she only sleeps for a few hours a day during filming. Even when she fell sick, she continued working. She is very hardworking. I observed that she was friendly with crew members. Knowing the strenuous behind-the-scenes work, she’ll buy food for everyone. All these little things made me notice her more.”
Rough Start in Love
The couple was faced with hurdles early on in their relationship. When their romance was publicized, the media quickly painted Priscilla as the third party who came in between Edwin’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend, Gigi Ho (何傲芝). “The reports were so bad that it really affected her mood.” He further added, “Every time the media writes about it, she gets very unhappy and thinks, ‘Have they written enough yet?’ However, each time we overcome an obstacle, our relationship evolves.”
Although Edwin desires to have children, he believes that it is important to establish his career before starting a family. When asked whether he sees Priscilla as an ideal marriage partner, Edwin smiled, “This is not up to me. We have to see what she thinks. Give us a little more time. It’s too fast.”
Simplicity is Best
Although celebrities are often perceived to be beautiful and glamorous, Edwin believes that because of their simplicity, he and Priscilla are exceptionally compatible. Rather than spending extravagantly for romance, they instead enjoy spending their dates walking the beaches.
Inspired by the robot in the anime Castle in the Sky <天空之城>, whose head was constructed from rocks, the couple established their own romantic gist of collecting rocks. “We decided to gather rocks to surround the robot’s head. One time, we were so silly that we drove all the way to Tai Mo Shan to pick rocks. In the end, the rock we found was too big to move into the car!” From then on, the couple would collect a rock wherever they went as a memento.
