Philip Ng (伍允龍) will be starring as a lead character in an upcoming TVB television drama in 2014, as confirmed by Philip’s manager, Wong Jing (王晶).

“We are currently in preliminary talks with Catherine Tsang (曾勵珍). Nothing is confirmed yet,” said Wong Jing in a recent interview. “We have no problem working with Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), but I know she has many dramas on hand. We’ll wait for TVB’s arrangements.”

TVB Blacklisted Philip?

It has been an open secret that Philip is dating Linda. The low-profile couple met while shooting the romantic comedy Love is Not All Around <十分愛> in 2007, and Linda even invited Philip to be the male lead in the music video for her debut single, “Lovers’ World” <2人世界>, which was released in 2008. TVB reportedly got very upset with Linda’s romance with Philip and ordered Philip’s scenes in Linda’s music video to be cut off. Philip’s subsequent appearances at public events also did not receive broadcast treatments from TVB.

For the next few years, Philip and Linda were rarely seen in public together. However, after Philip signed with Wong Jing’s company early last year and had a starring role in the 2013 martial arts film Once Upon a Time in Shanghai <惡戰>, TVB allegedly loosened up and allowed Philip and Linda to acknowledge each other in public. In August of this year, Philip was seen supporting Linda at her first solo concert.

“As long as I’m here no one will have the guts to blacklist him,” said Wong Jing.

According to a source, Wong Jing and TVB’s chairman Charles Chan (陳國強) are close friends, and it took Wong Jing a bit of convincing to cast Philip in a TVB drama. It has been said that TVB is interested in casting Philip because of his martial arts ability.

It is highly likely that Philip will be shooting Anthony Wong’s (黃秋生) new TVB drama, which will begin filming early next year. “I will fight for all opportunities and do my best,” said Philip when asked if he was going to shoot a new TVB drama. Asked if there would be a chance for him to work with Linda, Philip said, “It doesn’t matter if it’s drama or film. It doesn’t matter who the female lead is; I’ll try my best in all of them.”

    Wait, I thought Philip is a martial-arts instructor. He’s also an actor?

      Yes, he’s a qualified practising martial arts actor. HKG movies need new blood and instead of all those cgi and pretty boys who can’t even do some basic kungfu moves, there are thousands out there who only needed chances to come forward.

      Good on ya Philip, I had my eyes on your talent since your tvb series of Wing Chun with Nic Tse.

        He hasn’t had many acting roles until recently and honestly he’s pretty good. I’m glad he’s finally getting opportunities.

    Don’t know if I’m the only one or not but I’m sure that this guy can fight but can’t act. His dialogues are provided funnily.

    Linda acting sucks anyway. She sucks the most in BK. I don’t know why tvb keeps promoting her. She is not that pretty either. When she talks i can’t stand to watch her mouth. She has a small mouth with big teeth and it make her look like she has a rat’s mouth. There are so many beautiful actresses who are more beautiful and better in acting than her: such as Nancy wu, Natalie, Mandy just to name a few.
