Edwin Siu Wants to Win an Award Through Tough Competition

With three of his dramas — Madam Cutie On Duty <師奶MADAM >, My “Spiritual” Ex-Lover <倩女喜相逢>, and Master of Destiny <風雲天地> — released this year, TVB actor Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) is said to have high chances of snatching an award at the 2015 TVB Anniversary Awards. In addition, there are chances that two of his other dramas, No Reserve <巾幗梟雄之諜血長天> and Short End of the Stick <公公出宮> will also be broadcast before the big night.

Speaking of nominations for the awards ceremony, Edwin expressed, “I don’t know if the other two series will be aired this year, but I’m glad that my characters vary in personality. I’m lucky to be able to serve as comic relief and am not worried about viewers finding me boring. However, receiving an award or not does not depend on the number of my aired dramas.”

When asked if he is determined to win at least the Most Improved Male Artiste Award in order to level with his girlfriend Priscilla Wong (黃翠如), Edwin remarked, “I never thought about that. Speaking of goals, I still have a long way to go when it comes to winning TV King. I hope to compete for Best Supporting Actor, since many of my costars are just as brilliant, including Ram Chiang (蔣志光) and Joseph Lee (李國麟). It’s best to have some competition, because receiving an award easily doesn’t mean anything. The harder the more fun!”

In terms of the currently broadcast Master of Destiny starring Edwin as a couple with Mainland Chinese actress Natalie Meng (孟瑤), Edwin laughed and expressed, “Our chemistry is pretty good with our love-hate relationship. We serve as comic relief in this otherwise heavy series.” Edwin added that he hopes to improve his acting skills by portraying characters with both a good and dark side, since a role of inner struggle and contradiction often lead to breakthroughs.

Edwin had nothing but praises for his girlfriend, Priscilla. He expressed joyfully, “Getting to know her was a very happy thing – it’s my treasure. There are not many people who are as simple as her. She is my dating goal! For the moment, we haven’t thought about our upcoming years since we want to focus on our careers. Although my family never urged me to marry her, they all like her a lot.”

    his acting is not bad. he’s actually alot better acting as the bad guy than good. i remembered he was always the bad guy in his early dramas w/ tvb. i don’t think he’s so good portraying a good person.

    His acting is terrible in the league of those who is not supposed to be terrible. He overacts and I find him exceedingly annoying. Because he is so OTT and campy, a villain suits him more. As for winning against tough competition, if he wins now, I will question whether votes are rigged for reasons perhaps he has gained sudden favour.

    I agree that he’s a better bad guy than a good guy. When he’s a good guy, he’s so OTT. His “style” is better suite as a egoistic, narrow-minded, “eye in the forehead” kind of bad guy.

    With that being said, I think he does have a good chance for a BSA b/c there hasn’t been any other memorable BSAs thus far.

    Generally speaking it is easier for an artiste to act a villainous character than a good one. It give him/her more room to exaggerate and impress the audience
