Ron Ng (吳卓羲) is rooting for Chilam Cheung (張智霖) to win Best Actor at this year’s TVB Anniversary Awards.
Once a heavily promoted artist, Ron’s career has been hampered over the past few years by negative rumors and forgettable performances. Although he remains a staple on screen, few of his roles stood out and Ron seemed tired of the daily grind. Luckily for fans, Ron finally found his momentum once again after participating in this year’s popular drama Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄 II>. Even though he was simply reprising his role from the original series, he most certainly benefited from the sequel’s enthusiastic reception.
A changing point in his stalled career, Ron has returned with a more mature mindset and a better work ethic. Currently filming modern thriller Semi Evil Man <忠奸人>, Ron seems more dedicated to his craft, unafraid of performing his own action stunts. Portraying a police officer once again, Ron was professional as he slid down a two-story tall escalator and had no complaints when he was asked to do so three more times. Despite ruining an expensive pair of jeans, Ron kept a smile on his face, different from his past brooding attitude.
Perhaps grateful for his recent successes and finally making peace with his work, Ron is willing to give TVB priority when it comes to contract negotiations. With his current management deal expiring next year, Ron admits that he is considering various offers but said, “No one would know who I am if it wasn’t for TVB.”
While Ron is humble about his own chances at this year’s TVB Anniversary Awards, he eagerly shows his support for Triumph in the Skies 2 co-stars Chilam Cheung and Francis Ng (吳鎮宇). “It would be best if both of them win an award,” adding that Francis has a good chance to take home My Favorite Male Television Character.
