“Growing Through Life” Averages 25 Points in Ratings; Wayne Lai Will Not Give Up Battle for Best Actor
Raymond Lam Fung is rumored to receive TVB’s Best Actor Award this year. However, Raymond’s recent series, Growing Through Life <摘星之夜> averaged only twenty-five points in ratings in its first week of broadcast.
Wayne Lai Yiu Chueng said that he will not give up “the battle” for Best Actor. Joining the cast of TVB sitcom, Some Day <天天天晴>, Wayne will warm-up for the October broadcast of Rosy Business 2: The Righteous Sea of Heroic Love.
In regards to the race for Best Actress, Wayne ’s co-star in Some Day, Teresa Mo Shun Kwan, said that she can only put in her best performance and let luck decide the results. Teresa explained that the ratings for Growing Through Life may be hindered by the new faces of the mainland cast. The audience needs patience to immerse into the drama before the ratings will increase.

Jayne: The Hong Kong audience does not receive joint collaborations with China that well. It’s an intolerance for new faces, as was the case in The Drive of Life. Since the two main female leads in Growing Through Life are from China , this may be the cause for the low ratings.
