Actors Raymond Wong (黃浩然) and Raymond Cho (曹永廉) promoted their latest TVB series, Overachievers<名門暗戰>, on a radio program recently. Having collaborated in many acting projects in the past, the two costars easily found chemistry on the set.
Raymond Wong expressed that he would normally practice his dialogue with his costars before filming begins, but he did not need to do so with Raymond Cho. Instead, the two friends would go straight into filming, and then point out what they find to be insufficient in each other’s performances. Raymond Cho would never hold back his criticism on Raymond Wong’s performance since they are good friends. Raymond Wong added that it is important to consider suggestions given by others, regardless if that person is a senior or junior. “In order to improve, you must open up your attitude,” he said.
Earlier, Raymond Wong was diagnosed with Behçet’s disease, a rare autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation throughout the body. As a result, Raymond Wong had to turn down TVB’s Captain of Destiny <張保仔> and stay at home to recuperate. “I’m doing a lot better now,” Raymond assured. “I’m okay. I’ve gained weight now. I’ve also been taking a lot of Chinese medicine to improve my immune system.”
Raymond Cho laughed at Raymond Wong’s response, “So there was no point in training your body to be so big after all.”
Raymond Wong said he has realized how important it is to stay healthy. A job can be replaced, but family cannot. He learned to value time spent with his wife and two sons more.
Speaking about his recently opened cafe, Raymond Cho said he has wanted to be a restaurant owner at a young age. His elder brother was one of his influences,“My brother opened his own restaurant. He wanted to open another one, and gave that opportunity to me,” he said. Raymond Cho expressed that he does not have a business mind, but learned a lot since opening his restaurant. He is happy to see his business doing well.
