In currently airing TVB drama Go! Go! Go! Operation C9 <C9特工>, Samantha Ko (高海寧) stars as a former secret agent who tries to live a normal life after marriage. Samantha’s portrayal impressed Producer Leung Yiu Kin (梁耀堅), who praised the actress’ ability to capture the multifaceted character. Despite the story centering on secret agents, the producer also pointed out that a bigger message is to bring out the importance of family love.
Leung Yiu Kin enthused over Samantha’s acting, “She was able to portray a delicate and darling type of woman whose husband dotes on her. She also had to switch personalities, and become a strong-minded and tough female agent. It is not an easy task for an artiste to switch mindsets like that, and Samantha did a splendid job.”
Reflecting on the drama, Leung Yiu Kin stressed that the significance of the drama is not to highlight secret agents’ skill sets, but to focus on the importance of love and familial relationships. “To a certain degree, the majority of people feel that the heroes are the ones doing great things. In the drama, Kenneth Ma‘s (馬國明) husband character selflessly protects his wife. From my perspective, people who are willing to give it their all to protect, care, and sacrifice for their family is a true hero.”
A subplot in Go! Go! Go! Operation C9 revolves around how Samantha gets along with her stepson. Recalling a memorable scene, the producer shared, “There was a scene where Samantha planned to celebrate Mother’s Day with her stepson. However, Griselda Yeung (楊卓娜), who stars at Kenneth’s ex-wife, deliberately sabotaged the event. Three days later, they were finally able to celebrate the occasion as a family of three, and Kenneth gave Samantha a sweet surprise too.”
Aside from Samantha’s role, Leung Yiu Kin also praised supporting actor, Brian Chu (朱敏瀚), for his performance. “Brian portrays a young man who only plays video games all day and depends on his family for allowance. However, he does not make the character unlikeable. Instead, the feeling you get is one that is rather casual and comfortable. It feels different from the other more serious roles he has played in the past.”
