Since winning the 2011 Miss Hong Kong crown, Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗) has been promoted heavily by TVB. Portraying Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) wife in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>, Rebecca was quickly romantically linked to the “Diamond Bachelor.” Although she had a favorable impression of Kenneth, Rebecca said that she was still in the process of getting to know him!
Forced to Breakup with Ex-Boyfriend
In the beginning of the year, Rebecca broke up with her Ukranian boyfriend named Kostyantyn Keshyshev. The pair met in Rebecca’s former ballet troupe. Kostyantyn was presented with an opportunity, which required him to leave Hong Kong. Rebecca believed that relationships were a matter of timing; although she was unwilling to let go, she had to do so.
“In life, we have joyous gatherings and grievous partings. It is already fate to meet him (Kostyantyn). However, things appear to be predestined; he had to leave here. We are forced to break up. I have no reason to stop a young man’s opportunities. A man’s focus should be on his career. It was necessary to let go and allow him to improve his career opportunities. If fate allows it, maybe we can be together in the future again!”
“Clayton Li is Only a Friend”
2011 Mr. Hong Kong, Clayton Li (李晉強), who was photographed resting his head on Rebecca’s shoulder while riding the train in January. However, Rebecca said, “He is a good friend in which we can chat about any topic. He is like a little boy!”
“Kenneth Ma is Truthful”
While filming Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles costar, Rebecca was nursing her heartbreak after splitting from Kostyantyn. Single again, she was quickly rumored with Kenneth Ma. Rebecca professed that she was attracted by his character in the drama and had a positive impression of his real-life personality.
“Kenneth Ma is my husband in the drama. He taught me many things. But I do not know how he is in real life. It is worthy to marry his character in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles!”
Asked directly if she was romantically interested in Kenneth, Rebecca replied, “I do not fully understand (him); I do not know! From reading the newspaper, he will not circumvent his responses. He is very direct, proving that he does not have much to hide. He is generous in allowing the press to photograph what they wish.”
Filming Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄 2 > in July, Rebecca will costar with Kenneth once again. Perhaps filming the 40 episode drama will allow Rebecca further opportunity to get to know Kenneth better.
In her interview, Rebecca inadvertently revealed that she paid attention to Kenneth’s news and judged his sincerity and character positively. She continued, “He is cute. Many people wear different masks. He presented his true self before others. I read in the news that Kenneth admitted to watching pornography, which is normal for a man to do so. But many men do not admit this. I feel that he is truthful and sincere. Many people will be interested in catching this ‘Diamond Bachelor’!”
Waiting to Reunite with Family
Living in Hong Kong for eight years, Rebecca has been separated from her parents for many years. Winning the Miss Hong Kong Pageant changed her life and improved her financial condition. Rebecca cherished the opportunities given to her by TVB and looked forward to earning enough money to allow her parents to live comfortably with her in Hong Kong.

Jayne: Hope to hear more follow-up regarding Rebecca and Kenneth. Although it sounds as if she sacrificed her former relationship to pursue an acting career. Rebecca may not so easily fall for another man at this time. Leaving a good impression is a good start though.
