Nancy Wu, Kelly Cheung and Matthew Ho Turn Heads in “Narcotics Heroes”

TVB’s newest thriller Narcotic Heroes <破毒強人> is hyped as a plot with Hong-Kong style police and drug lord that is filled with tension and revenge. Starring Moses Chan (陳豪), Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Kelly Cheung (張曦雯), Matthew Ho (何廣沛), Bowie Cheung (張寶兒), Ram Chiang (蔣志光), Ashley Chu (朱智賢), and Rosita Kwok (郭柏妍). While the drama is filled with an impressive cast, netizens are impressed by Nancy, Kelly and Matthew’s characters.

Nancy Wu as an Ironclad Financier

While drawing praises for her performance in Mission Run <廉政狙擊> and Big White Duel <白色強人>, Nancy is once again taking on a strong charismatic character.

In the Narcotic Heroes, Nancy plays a wealthy financier who is only moved by money. In the official trailer, Nancy’s character looks confident and can be seen saying, “I really like money. Use the tens of millions as a blessing. I will miss it.”

Kelly Learns Her Own Stunts

Kelly will be playing a Senior Inspector of the Narcotics Bureau and will be seen in a number of action-filled scenes.

Ahead of the drama’s release, TVB released a tidbit of Kelly’s training where she was seen practicing her positions and movements. The training was strenuous and Kelly had to repeatedly practice her stance, sparring, shooting and rolling.

Aside from cutting her hair short, Kelly shared that she had to do homework and receive special training, “I had to exercise more to cope with so many action scenes. In fact, I was in pain after the first day of training. I’m thinking that after today’s training (the second day of movement training), I will be in pain for a few days.”

Matthew Ho as a Mute Smuggler

Matthew’s role is one to look out for as he plays a mute who smuggles drugs to escape poverty and provide for his sister and childhood sweetheart played by Rosita. In his job, Matthew’s character forms a bond with a drug lord played by Moses.

Although Matthew is skilled at memorizing his script, the actor is now tasked with memorizing sign language for the first time. Matthew confessed that it was a challenge, “Of course, I have learned it in class. I was silent and communicating in sign languages for the whole hour.”

Matthew added, “However, it is very difficult during filming because it was not the same as reciting dialogues. There are many times where I would forget the signs in the middle of filming and make an NG take. Everyone will understand after watching. Sometimes my hands get cramped up from repeatedly signing.”
