Grace Wong is the Complete Opposite of “Ophelia” in “OMG, Your Honour”
Grace Wong’s (王君馨) portrayal of her character, “Ophelia” in OMG, Your Honour <是咁的，法官閣下> has been much praised and is a heated topic of discussion among viewers. The drama has entered into its final week, with Ben Wong (黃智賢) admitting to Grace that there is a third party in their relationship and brutally said, “Even when we are most intimate, I’m still thinking about her!” Grace slapped Ben and hurtfully walked away. Grace’s acting is once again the center of attention.
Discussing the scene during an interview, Grace expressed, “That statement is one of the most difficult things to hear on this earth! The meaning behind that line is similar to saying he never loved me. This was said to me not by a boyfriend, but by my husband. This is someone that you thought you could rely on for the rest of your life. This definitely caused my character to break down completely. I told the producer that any woman who heard this would push the man off the cliff!”
Ophelia is not a likable protagonist. Grace admitted that she found the character and her actions very difficult to understand. “Actually, I spent a lot of time trying to understand Ophelia. She is someone that is irrational and I found that I am very different from the character. For me, I would never have a flash marriage. I would take my time to fully understand the man first before getting married.”
Reflecting on the character’s complexity, Grace shared, “Ophelia’s way of thinking is very different from me in real life. She is very emotional. Because I’m Christian, I can leave a lot of things to God. Everything is in God’s hands. But you can’t assume Ophelia is Christian, because she doesn’t have a pillar of support, so she is likely to commit suicide. Or, because of Ben’s abandonment, she would try to find love in someone else simply to fill the empty void. Even the scene where she kissed her female friend, it’s not because she is a lesbian, but rather because she lacks love.”
Grace has also learned to treasure her relationship with husband, Daniel Chang, even more. “Portraying Ophelia has made me appreciate my marriage even more. Although we waited for 12 years, my husband and I developed a very strong foundation. We are very stable. We also have the priest’s counseling. I believe we will continue having a good relationship until the end.”
