Michael Tse (謝天華) experienced great popularity from his “Laughing Gor” character in TVB series, E.U. <學警狙擊> In the currently aired Lives of Omission <潛行狙擊>, Laughing Gor was the only returning character in the sequel. The other characters and story from E.U. were omitted. Asked whether the change in casting impacted his performance, Michael said no and found the new partnerships refreshing.
Michael Tse and Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) shared numerous scenes together in Lives of Omission. Regarding their onscreen time, Michael said, “You can not use a ruler to measure the amount of screen time. Although it was my first time collaborating with Bosco, we surprisingly got along well together. Before getting into position for filming, we will discuss how to film the scenes and how to achieve a more ‘chok’ effect. Sharing our ideas, we immediately understand each other. It is very difficult to find such an onscreen partner!”
Discussing Male Topics Together
During filming breaks, Michael and Bosco will chat about various topics. Michael laughed, “There is not a large gap between our ages. When we are together, we will talk about cars and male topics.” (What did Michael think of younger actor, Bosco?) “Each actor needs to improve. I have to as well. It is a growth process for everyone.”
Did Not Feel Pressure
TVB will soon start shooting a new Laughing Gor movie. Asked whether Michael faced greater pressure each time, he said he did not feel anxious. “I am simple. I will focus only on doing my part well. This already enjoyable and makes me happy.”
Normally the series’ ratings fell upon the shoulders of the lead actor. However, Michael stated, “This is a view from the past. Now the audience is smarter and can differentiate.”
Jayne: Hopefully we get to see the good chemistry between Michael and Bosco in Lives of Omission. Laughing at an earlier comment that the series should go “Brokeback Infernal Affairs.” It would be daring….
