Eliza Sam and Wong Cho Lam to Star in Patrick Kong’s “Delete Lover”

This year is already off to a great start for Eliza Sam (岑麗香). Riding on the success of her recent TVB dramas, Eliza is now in talks to play the female lead opposite Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) in a new Patrick Kong (葉念琛) movie, Delete Lover <Delete愛人>. Eliza will play Cho Lam’s girlfriend and share an onscreen kiss in the new romantic comedy.

Eliza had previously made guest appearances in movie, I Love Hong Kong 2012 <2012我愛HK喜上加囍>, and starred in mini-movie Give Me 1 Minute to Say I Love You <愛在魅來1分鐘> with Raymond Lam (林峰).  However, her acting experience is even more limited than other Miss Chinese International winners, Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) and Leanne Li (李亞男).

Little is currently known about the film’s plot, but it is reported to be a heartfelt romantic comedy about love and family. Portraying a couple in love, Eliza and Wong Cho Lam will share an onscreen kiss, with more intense scenes to follow.

Known among male netizens as a “Goddess” for her sweet and sexy image, Eliza’s kissing scenes will surely generate major buzz for the movie. The film company is so confident about Eliza and Cho Lam’s pairing that it had given Patrick Kong unlimited budget to produce this film.

Speaking to the press during a photo shoot for the film’s promotional poster, Wong Cho Lam was supportive and enthusiastic in working with Eliza. When asked whether he had discussed with girlfriend Leanne Li about working with Eliza, Cho Lam stated that he had shared the news with Leanne. There is no reason for any concern, as the two hardly ever interfere with each other’s work projects.

Delete Lover will begin filming soon and be released in 2013.

    Eliza, I heart you, we’ve been friends for years. As much as I am happy for you for all the success you’ve gained thus far. You are NOT READY for a leading role. Your acting is still very raw, and your fluency in Cantonese, may sound cute to some, it is downright terrible.

    In your own personal accord, it certainly is ground-breaking and accomplishing. As your friend, I am happy for you and would give you a round of high-fives. As a viewer, you need to spend a few years in acting school because it’s actors like you that’s dragging the quality of Hong Kong entertainment production down.

        You guys are just jealous. Im sure there was an audition prior to her being selected. And she may not have the experience which is why people like her because she is natural. Its the “audience fate” that she has. I rmb watching her on MCI and she stood out. She probably fit the role and budget that the director was looking for. And plus this is not even a high budget film directed by Ang Lee…for example. Just a light hearted comedy. If you say she is “not ready” then when will she if shes never given the opportunity. Its just like someone not hiring you because you lack experience, when its the first job/opportunity in where you gain experience and learn. If they wanted to hire more experience than they could hire Karena Lam.
        Eliza is not young and she may not always get this opportunity to play a sweet innocent love role in the next couple of years.

        Also, hk cinema has gone downhill anyways…it will be a good learning experience for her whether she plays lead or second. Also, they factor who’s going to watch the film and appeal to what audience.

        At least she was a better choice the younger version of Chairmaine Sheh in when heaven burns. She auditioned too i think.

    I don’t like Eliza Sam. I just don’t like her kind of face.

    And how can TVB be so biased? she hardly has enough experience and she’s on the way up, too fast too soon.

    Be careful of the higher you climb, the harder you fall, especially when you are not ready. And it takes longer to get back on track after the fall, much longer than the normal pace.

    So, it usually takes 8 to 10 years for a fadan, it will take you 15 to 20 years, LOL

      That’s why TVB is a joke and will always be regarded as a second-class entertainment company. It’s companies like TVB that has made Hong Kong lost its significance in the world of entertainment globally.

      So true. and the higher you get, the more criticism you’ll get so I hope she’s ready for that.

    I never understood why people in Hong Kong think Eliza is hot/sexy.

    Because by Vancouver standards, she’s just average. Many of her friends (including myself) thought that she’s good-looking, but not to the extent that you would be salivating over her. I guess there really isn’t any good looking girls in HK

    and since when has 34C become a standard for big breasts? I can’t believe that I’ve read articles about HK men praising her for her big boobs.

    You guys need to get out more man.

        You guys are retarded if you think my comment was a direct criticism of her, more so, a shot of the lack of standards for beauty in HK.

      • Sds replied:

        I think its both. however, I do wonder what you think is so different about the beauty standards portrayed by the hk media that is so different to the popular media of other industrialized countries… Just got out of the rock?

        You need to crawl out of that well of yours if you don’t see any significant differences in standard of beauty.

        Asian media: Tall, skinny-to-the-bone, flat tits and ass

        Western Media: Tall, Curvy, flat stomach, bigger tits and ass.

        Wow those standards blow me away… +1 for ignorance. Have you considered cultural and generic differences? Have you considered cultural projections of perfection? Have you considered that western models are by in large sticks in person such as the VS models? Have you considered actually appraising what happens in the world other than from the western standard? And have you considered that hk media, or tvb in particular, is merely forcing its own sensationalized and prejudiced views of beauty onto viewers which is not representative of the norm? You don’t have to, because, as they say, you are ‘entitled’ to your own opinion.

      When you consider that it seems HK Males like walking stick figures, 34C is voluptuous. Breasts are fatty tissue… when you diet to the extent that many HK starlets do, you will lose breast mass.

      That’s why you are seeing “imported” girls like Eliza and Christine being salivated over for their figures.

        ^ HK males have no taste considering that there’s boatload of HK girls with tomboy haircuts, buttoned shirts, and saggy jeans walking down the street where you would have difficulty spotting their gender without a second glance.

        Bras can add one cup size bigger. Many celebrities rely on miracle underwear and NuBra can create miraculous cleavage (watched a Youtube video on this).

    turns out it’s eliza who got picked to be the next hk movie queen? kate must be crying. eliza not only get more attention in sniper 2013 but now also won over patrick kong.

    all this goddess talk and favoritism from tvb, media and now producers just because of one role in divas in distress. she’s going up too fast and too lucky.

    Agree. I like Eliza Sam. She is cute and sweet, but she is moving up too fast with her raw acting skills. I know she is working very hard on her Cantonese and acting. Good luck, Eliza.

    Goddess talk is overrated. Why do they use it for newcomers? Wow she is on the top after one series? She was that great in divas? She reminds me of how Linda rose to lead so quickly. Vancouver girls sure have it lucky.

    • Really??? replied:

      I don’t feel like she was very good at all in Divas…but I would say better than Amiee and Christine Kuo.

      I would have to disagree w/Linda…I’m not a fan of hers but I think she was a much much much better actress when she first came out.

      Just my opinion no offence…and yes it’s all about luck.

    I find that recently TVB series keeps putting actresses who cant act or even dress scantily to capture viewers, the actress alone actually spoil the whole series. Eg: Ghetto Justice 2

    TVB, I have been a fan of you since small, we want the old you, actresses who have poise and professional, which makes you different from china, taiwan and korean production.

    • sandcherry replied:

      Agree. TVB is very different now. An artiste does not need to have good acting skills to act and become a popular artiste. TVB is using sexy (such as rape) scenes to impress their audience. Sad!

        TVB wouldn’t use such scenes if the HK tv viewer didn’t eat them up.

    well if the likes of Linda Junk-face and Kate Ugly-too can make it, why not Eliza, who can easily kick the other two to the curb just from sheer cuteness. As for talent, its just non existent. That is why TVB is a mess in the last decade, bad is mediocre, and mediocre is the new good.

    Luck, timing and audience acceptance have to be THERE at the same time. These are what an artiste needs in order to boost her acting career. I guess Eliza Sam has them all.

    To be honest, it’s the noise/buzz that creates opportunity for an actor. If nobody even reacts on how well an actor acts or not or how good or his or her cantonese is etc. then nobody would be aware of that actors existence and he or she would have no marketing appeal at all. thus no opportunities.

    ps: people living in hk are reacting so there is market. i would say, try to reap the benefit as long as you’re able to.

    Oh god, she’s leading a movie? Please tell me this is a joke. It is obvious that she’s still unable to lead the whole movie! She’s okay cute (I’ve never find her really pretty or goddess-like, maybe I’m the only one) but being a female lead isn’t that easy after all. Take more acting classes, improve your Cantonese, start from some minor roles and come back as the lead.

      same. i like inbound troubles written by cho lam but i dislike his acting! but patrick kong said that he will tailor made the role for cho lam and will give cho lam lots of inner feeling scenes instead of just comedies. wonder if eliza’s role is tailor made around her limitations too.

      don’t think anyone auditioned for this. they must be choosing eliza for her big noise as goddess!
