Despite its successful predecessors, Heart and Greed <溏心風暴3> has been met with mediocre ratings due to its recycled storyline. Just as viewers felt there was little surprise even as the drama was entering its last arc, they were pleasantly surprised by Eliza Sam’s (岑麗香) acting. In recent episodes, Eliza delivered several stellar performances in her crying scenes. Many were quick to praise Eliza’s improvements.
Sharing a bittersweet romantic storyline with Vincent Wong (王浩信), Eliza was forced to leave Vincent due to family obligations. After 30 episodes of repressed feelings, Vincent finally confessed his love to Eliza. However, happiness did not last long, as Eliza’s father Joseph Lee (李國麟) experiences business bankruptcy. Jason Chan (陳智燊) comes into the picture and saves the day, offering Joseph the $5 billion HKD he needed to save the company. To help save her father’s company, Eliza marries Jason despite still being in love with Vincent.
Eliza impressed with her acting range. In one scene, Eliza reunites with Joseph who ran away from home due to his failed business. Although upset with the dilemma, Eliza holds back tears in order to comfort her father. Another scene is when Eliza breaks up with Vincent, despite the couple still being deeply in love. Eliza’s crying scenes were full of emotions and viewers could feel Eliza’s torn sentiments.
Eliza was nominated as TV Queen this year through her role in this drama. Though Eliza’s chances of winning the award may be slim to none, many applauded her acting skills and improvements. Heart and Greed allowed Eliza to showcase her acting range and step out of her usual bubbly, happy-go-lucky roles.
