Grace Chan and Sisley Choi On Their Friendship
Freshly crowned Miss Chinese International Grace Chan (陳凱琳) is preparing for a busy schedule ahead. The first Miss Hong Kong to win the Miss Chinese International crown since Sonija Kwok (郭羨妮) in 2000, Grace has already been cast in the upcoming TVB drama Trade Wars <商戰>, starring alongside Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Raymond Wong (黃浩然), and Edwin Siu (蕭正楠).
Grace will not be the only TVB rookie to look forward to in 2014. Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), first runner-up at the 2013 Miss Hong Kong pageant, has already completed the filming of her debut TVB drama Ox Head Loves Horse Mouth <牛頭愛搭馬嘴>, and she will also be costarring with Grace in the upcoming Trade Wars.
The two friends and Miss Hong Kong winners share the same dream – to become successful actresses. Sisley helped Grace prepare her first acting role in Trade Wars by sharing her experiences gained from Ox Head Loves Horse Mouth.
Grace expressed her joy in working with Sisley, “We’ve been contacting each other more often after the pageant. We grew a lot closer, and she was genuinely happy for me when she knew I’d be filming a drama. She also gave me a lot of support when I was competing for the Miss Chinese International pageant. The friendship we share is hard to come by.”
Sisley cherishes her friendship with Grace, “In Sandra Ng’s (吳君如) earlier interview, she mentioned how she and Carina Lau (劉嘉玲) were friends since TVB’s artist class [in 1983]. I really hope that Grace and I will be like them, to continue to support each other and keep the friendship we have.”
They joked that if they were to fight over the same man in the same drama, they would rather give up the man, exclaiming, “Friendship comes first!”
Grace said, “In the end, the love from family and friends are the most important.” Sisley added, “[Romantic] love is something that we would eventually go through in life, but we cannot impose on it. I will let nature take its course. Right now, I should concentrate on my career. To be recognized for my work in dramas greatly satisfies me.”
Moon Lau and Tiffany Ou Yang Want to Work with Anthony Wong
Miss Hong Kong second runner-up, Moon Lau (劉佩玥), and Miss Friendship, Tammy Ou Yang (歐陽巧瑩), revealed that they are currently striving for the opportunity to be featured in Anthony Wong’s (黃秋生) upcoming TVB drama, which will begin filming in the summer.
“I really don’t care what role I’d get. I just want to work with senior Anthony Wong,” said Tammy. “Both Moon and I see him as our idol. It’s rare to see him working for TVB, so we will fight for the opportunity to work with him.”
For her New Year’s wish, Tammy expressed that she hopes to save enough money to treat her family to a long vacation. She also added that she wants to find Mr. Right, who must get along with her family.
