Nicky Wu’s Popularity Topples Kevin Cheng in TV Awards Race
Taiwanese actor, Nicky Wu’s (吴奇隆) popularity has skyrocketed since his series Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步惊心> was broadcast last year. He was nominated for “Best Chinese Male Actor” in the 7th Annual Seoul International Drama Awards for his role as the “Fourth Prince.” Currently, online poll results show that Nicky received 45% of votes, surpassing Hong Kong’s hot favorite, Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎)! Kevin, who portrayed the “Eighth Prince,” only accumulated 25% of the votes to-date for his performance of the same series.
As Bu Bu Jin Xin was extremely popular in China, the series’ actress Cecilia Liu (刘诗诗) is also dominating with 51% of online votes, beating out Hong Kong actresses, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Fala Chen (陳法拉), and Jessica Hsuan (宣萱)!
When interviewed at the Swarovski grand opening celebration held at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre, Nicky may have been too immersed in his role in Bu Bu Jing Xin, causing him to answer questions with Fourth Prince’s mannerism. When asked of his performance in the series, Nicky indicated that he wished to perform to the best of his capabilities. He never thought of getting awards. He expressed, “Bu Bu Jing Xin allowed me to have more younger fans.”
As Nicky gained early recognition from movie Butterfly Lovers <梁祝>, directed by Tsui Hark (徐克) back in 1994, reporters questioned if he will reprise his role as Leung San Pak. Nicky said, “Previously, I was approached to film a Butterfly Lovers series, but I rejected it. I feel that a different generation requires a different cast. Who is the best candidate? You would have to ask director, Tsui Hark. I currently have no plans to film in Hong Kong.”
With his increasing popularity, Nicky admitted that he is quite selective of his work. He will consider films based on the script and production quality.
Nicky Refuses to Disclose Details of Love Life
Asked of his love life, Nicky’s face dropped and tone changed, “Do you know how busy I am? Where would I find time?” When pressed further, Nicky sadly laughed and said, “Do you have any other questions?” With his career flourishing, it will not be long before more rumors of his love relationships surface!
Rapist and Killer Linked to Nicky’s Movie Production
Nicky invested and produced in new drama, Legend of the White-Haired Maiden <白髮魔女傳> in which starred in as well. There has been recent rumors that two extra actresses from Legend of the White-Haired Maiden were raped and slained. Frustrated, Nicky replied, “There’s no such thing! I don’t want to respond. The victims are not part of the cast, so it’s not related to me!”
