Jack Hui and Mandy Lam Favorites to Win Best Onscreen Partnership
Jack Hui (許家傑) and Mandy Lam (林淑敏) are favorites to win the Most Popular Onscreen Partnership award at the 2018 TVB Anniversary Awards, which will be held on December 16.
Mandy’s Star-making Role
Working together in TVB sitcom, Come Home Love: Lo and Behold <愛回家之開心速遞>, Jack and Mandy’s characters managed to grasp the hearts of many viewers in Hong Kong. Having only previously played minor roles such as mistresses and prostitutes, Mandy’s role as the sassy “Linda Lung” helped her win a nomination for Best Supporting Actress as well.
Entering the industry in 2000 after participating in Miss Hong Kong, Mandy was virtually unknown and only played rather insignificant characters. The 42-year-old actress admitted that for a few years, she thought about giving up because she was unable to find the true value in being an artiste.
Mandy expressed, “There are so many people in this world who aren’t following their dreams, and if there is an opportunity available – it’s important that you grab it. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, the biggest reward in the end will be your dedication to your dream. You should always try your best.”
Jack Left Auditor Job
Like Mandy, Jack also decided take the road less traveled. Although Jack was originally an accounting auditor, he decided that to enter the Mr. Hong Kong competition in 2009 in order to experience something different than following the traditional route of working in a steady office job.
Jack humbly expressed that the award nomination is not something he expected nor would he mind if he loses in the end. The 35-year-old actor explained, “Being in the race is not important. It’s more about the filming experience and having worked together like a family. The audience’s happiness is the most important.”
