Rebecca Zhu’s Lineup Position at TVB’s Lighting Ceremony Shows Her Rising Status

TVB kicked started its 51st anniversary celebrations with its annual lighting ceremony on October 14. A number of artistes gathered for the company’s event and stood in their arranged spots to pose for a big photo op. Rebecca Zhu’s (朱晨麗) lineup position in the first row, near TVB’s first generation fadan, Liza Wang (汪明荃), received a lot of attention as it indicates her rising prominence in the company.

As always, Liza stood in the center of the first row – this year sandwiched between last year’s TV King Vincent Wong (王浩信) and Edwin Siu (蕭正楠). To the right hand side of Vincent were TV Queen Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), Joe Ma (馬德鐘), Mat Yeung (楊明), and surprisingly former Miss Hong Kong winners, Louisa Mak (麥明詩) and Crystal Fung (馮盈盈). The two beauty queens host the talk show, Young and Restless <後生仔傾吓偈>, along with Luk Ho Ming (陸浩明), and have received a lot of noise for their hosting abilities. On the left of Edwin stood Rebecca, who snagged last year’s Best Supporting Actress award, Ben Wong (黃智賢), Owen Cheung (張振朗), and Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯).

Rebecca, who will be in the upcoming anniversary drama Fist Fight <兄弟>, accepted an interview along with co-star Philip Ng (伍允龍). In response to her lineup position, Rebecca thanked TVB for giving her the opportunity and said she’s honored. As for the Best Actress award, she said she’d leave it up to fate.  “I care more about [Fist Fight’s] ratings; hopefully more people will watch it,” the actress said.

Philip shared they were filming for the series in England around this time last year. In fact, he had only filmed one scene with Rebecca before flying there for on-location shots. In addition, the cast went straight into shooting without getting the chance to shave or shower first. Rebecca added, “It was very smelly, and it was a romance scene. We filmed a proposal right after landing. Although we didn’t know each other, he already asked me to marry him.”

The two stars said the scene really tested their acting skills but did their best to grasp it. “I was thinking how should I do it?” Philip said. “Thankfully she was very tolerant with my acting.”

The actress expressed, “[Fist Fight] is worth looking out for because we really spent over half a year filming it and it was very challenging. There’s also a great group of actors – Vincent, Mat, Philip; everyone fights in there.”

After completing Fist Fight, Philip spent half a year resting and attended a meeting in the United States in addition to celebrating his parents’ birthdays. Philip will be staying in Hong Kong to promote the drama.

        Can’t agree more. Back in the 80’s and 90’s, most of the current crop of first-line actors wouldn’t even make the second line. It saddens and pains me how garbage HK entertainment has become.

    I’m so happy for Vincent!! He deserved the front place!!

    I would rather they place Eddie Kwan or Ben Wong in front instead of Edwin Siu.. I know it’s my wishful thinking…

    Man..seeing this picture is really sad…even Kenneth Ma is not coming…what a sad Lighting Ceremony…

    Wow…I’m literally speechless right now…definitely a new low for TVB! When artists like Rebecca Zhu and Edwin Siu – both of whom can’t act to save their lives — get put in the front row (which is basically sending a message to audiences that they are the best the station’s got right now), you know TVB has hit rock bottom. With this year being the worst artist lineup in TVB’s 50 year history, I don’t even want to know what the Anniversary Awards at the end of the year is going to look like – if last year’s was bad, I’m afraid this year will be 100x worse….

    Kenneth & Ruco also deserve to be at the front row if they attend.
