Divas in Distress <巴不得媽媽…> is the fifth time that Him Law (羅仲謙) and Mandy Wong (黃智雯) have worked together. Both of them are worried that the viewers may find their image as lovers to be overexposed. While their pairing is not as refreshing as before, Him and Mandy still have a suitable onscreen chemistry, allowing viewers to accept them as a couple.
Him’s real life girlfriend is Tavia Yeung (楊怡), but he has paired with Mandy Wong since 2010’s Suspects in Love <搜下留情>. Their romantic collaborations this year include Tiger Cubs <飛虎> and Divas in Distress. Younger viewers have especially become fans of the pairing over the last two years.
Mandy said, “In L’Escargot <缺宅男女>, viewers are used to the characters that Oscar Leung (梁烈唯) and I played, so they tend to have the image of us being husband and wife. However, with Him, it’s different. We played opposites in Tiger Cubs and Suspects In Love. Although our characters were not madly in love, we gave the viewers the impression of having deep admiration and love for each other.”
Mandy was a bit worried people might find it boring when Him portrays her lover again. However, with help from the production crew and other elements in Divas in Distress, they managed to pull everything together again, and the end results turned out well.
The Husband and the Lover
Mandy jokingly labeled Him as “the boyfriend” and called Oscar as “the husband”. She said, “Maybe I would be better off to divorce or split with them to keep our images fresh. We started our career at TVB about the same time, so it was pretty natural the producers choose the same team for the shows.”
In The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時> Mandy harbored a crush on Kenneth Ma (馬國明), and then ended up dating Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪). Hoping to work with veterans and learn from their vast experience in acting, Mandy said she would be excited if given a chance to work with Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Roger Kwok (郭晉安).
“Not My Cup of Tea:
Will the constant partnership with Him turn into real love? Mandy said that is unlikely, as Him is not her cup of tea. She stated, “Him is a good friend, and we get along well. We treat each other more like siblings. I like the more mature and stable type. Him is more like a happy-go-lucky type that someone one would date as her first love. Him is forgetful and goofy, and I want someone more mature to take care of me.”
