How Roger Kwok Dropped 30 Pounds for “Dead Wrong”

After a week of establishing characters and backstory, TVB anniversary drama Dead Wrong <致命復活> is finally ready to move forward with Vincent’s revenge story.

Produced by Lam Chi-wah (林志華), Dead Wrong stars Roger Kwok as Vincent, a man who was abducted and imprisoned in an abandoned cell for ten years. After he escapes and is found, he returns to Hong Kong, where he discovers that his abduction ten years ago was the result of an elaborate scheme against him.

To reflect his character’s bitter experiences, Roger dropped over 30 pounds. He used three months time to get into the ideal shape of his character—which is to be underweight and extremely gaunt.

But the weight loss actually wasn’t as difficult as Roger had thought. He said, “During your weight loss, it’s very important to exercise. Do not eat any carbohydrates during dinner, and completely cut out rice. Only eat vegetables and meat. Eat a lot of vegetables. Eat beef, fish, and pork sparingly. Maybe eat a handful of meat every day, and eat two bowls of vegetables with it. Don’t eat after 7 pm.”

Roger’s wife Cindy Au (歐倩怡), who had studied nutrition, helped Roger manage his weight loss regiment. “She’s the one who helped me prepare my meals.”

Dead Wrong will air its series finale on December 17, 2016.

    I do admire artistes who make sacrifices to bring out more of the character that they are to play. Roger is a dedicated actor. Last time he spend some time with disabled people on how to portray a man in a wheelchair properly. You can really see his hard work as you watch his series.

      I really admire Roger Kwok as an actor. He reminds me of Leonardo di caprio. who also makes himself really into character, so that they can bring the character to life.

    Roger Kwok has definitely proved to be a great actor over the years, but how can he be nominated for his role in ‘Dead Wrong’ when the drama has not finished airing yet?

    TVB always does things so poorly and carelessly. If they want Roger or ‘Dead Wrong’ to be part of the award nominees then schedule/air this drama earlier. TVB, can you at least pretend to be professional and that your award shows are legitimate?

      Agree. We are among those who really look into the acting rather than just admiring the actor/actress in a drama. I also like Ruco, but Roger is indeed great in Dead Wrong…portraying his role convincingly.

      Perhaps the favourite male character award for Ruco since he’s really likeable for his character in A Fist.

    As the drama continues, my opinion is even more solidified that Roger deserves Best Actor this year. He’s doing a marvelous job.

    My runner up would be Bosco, but the news of him leaving TVB automatically puts him out of the running…

    Whilst his dedication is amazing, like Christian Bale (but less insane), I don’t think the gaunt look is ideal at all. The article is as if promoting this way of life.

    In fact I don’t think Vincent needs to be gaunt anymore when he went back to HK. After all he exercised and ate well and recovered when in Vietnam. So assuming he was there for months, there’s no need for gaunt look anymore. Roger himself is never fat to begin with.

    Actually ALL HK actors are very slim, even those you think fat in real life actually looks just right.
