As a TVB siu sang, Ron Ng (吳卓羲) filmed one television series after another. Witnessing actors from his generation, Raymond Lam (林峯) and Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), praised as hot favorites in this year’s race for TVB Best Actor, Ron noted that he will not be unhappy as he never had expectations regarding awards. As for rumored girlfriend, Viann Zhang (張馨予), Ron stated that he did not want to speak about his personal matters.
In upcoming new TVB series, Forensic Heroes 3 <法證先鋒III>, Ron Ng will once again play a police officer. Confident that he had portrayed a police officer the most among TVB siu sangs, Ron did not feel physically tired. Asked whether he felt bored portraying a police officer countless times, Ron replied, “I do not feel bored! A police officer can possess different identities. In Forensic Heroes 3, I am a member of the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) unit. Earlier, in E.U.<學警狙擊>, I played an undercover police officer. In the recently completed ATF Counter Terrorism Unit <ATF反恐>, my role shared similarities to an officer of the Special Duties Unit (nicknamed ‘Flying Tigers’). There are big differences!”
Reflecting upon his favorite role this year, Ron indicated that he loved his character in Dwelling Choice of Men and Women <抉宅男女>, which also stars Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣). Ron stated, “This was my favorite role over the last 7 to 8 years. The character is very practical, who never dreams of getting rich. However, he was betrayed by his significant other, resulting in a lot of emotional turmoil is found inside his heart.”
Let Awards Come Naturally
Actors from Ron’s generation, Raymond Lam and Bosco Wong, were considered the hot favorites to win the TVB Best Actor Award this year. Nominated in the past, Ron’s fate was not aligned with this award. Instead, his performance in Pretty Maid <大丫鬟> earned him the title of I-Cable TV King. Ron explained, “I never hold any particular expectations when it comes to awards. I do not film series for the intention of winning awards.” (Your contemporaries have been nominated in the Top Five category; are you unhappy?) “I am not unhappy. At TVB for 11 years, I will let awards run their natural course. I only want to deliver better onscreen performances!”
When rumored girlfriend, Viann Zhang’s name was brought up in the interview, Ron indicated that he did not want to discuss his personal matters. “Over the years, the media had numerous speculations over my romantic life. Since the rumors were not true, their impact was limited. At this time, I hope that everyone will give me space to get to know some friends.” (Even if you were truly dating, you will not admit it?) “When I get married, I will make an announcement. I will not purposely bring up the topic of my dating status! As an artist, there is a lot of pressure to have to reveal ‘the skin on my stomach’ for all to see!”
Jayne: Looking forward to Forensic Heroes 3.
