Niki Chow (周麗淇) has confirmed that she is interested in renewing her current per-series contract with TVB. “There’s a very high chance for me to renew it,” said Niki at a recent promotional function.
Earlier this week, tabloids reported that Niki agreed to renew her TVB contract for an extra five years in exchange for a TVB Best Actress award. The reports further claimed that Niki even agreed to collaborate with former lover Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) again in a new Amy Wong (王心慰) drama. Niki and Kevin dated briefly while shooting Amy Wong dramas Under the Canopy of Love <天幕下的戀人> and The Seventh Day <最美麗的第七天> between 2006 and 2008. The couple reportedly broke up on bad terms.
Though Niki stated that she is indeed looking at renewing her contract with TVB, she found the tabloid reports highly exaggerated and said that she does not believe artists could exchange long contracts for awards. “Why would such a big institution give me [the award] just for my contract? If I could do it, than anyone could do it.”
Niki also said that she would be returning to TVB soon to shoot another television drama. Asked if her costar would be her former boyfriend Kevin Cheng, Niki thought for a moment, then said, “It has already been so many years. I don’t think I would mind. I don’t care who I’m working with, as long as I get a good part.”
She also said she would not mind teaming up with Kevin as an onscreen couple again, saying that it would be for work.
