Sammy Sum (沈震軒) and Grace Chan (陳凱琳) are nominated for the Most Improved Artiste awards at the 48th TVB Anniversary Awards, which will be held on December 15. Well-liked by viewers, Sammy and Grace share their feelings over their chances at the awards ceremony.

Sammy delivered memorable performances in Line Walker <使徒行者> and All That is Bitter is Sweet <大藥坊> this year. Sammy felt as if he had split personality portraying characters at such opposite extremes around the same time. “I was also playing a villain in All That is Bitter is Sweet. This character is a wolf in sheep’s clothing and eventually ended up going mad.”

Sammy added that filming for Line Walker was physically straining. “In the scene where I had to go on a bicycle chase after a thief, I fractured my wrist. It was the toughest filming experience I’ve endured. Each night, at the end of filming, I would take note of the various injuries I inevitably suffered. However I’m glad that these injuries helped make my undercover agent character look more realistic.”

As for his chances of winning the award, Sammy said candidly, “I’m not particularly nervous. My odds are probably 50:50. My biggest competitor is probably Louis Cheung (張繼聰), who is good at playing both positive and villainous roles. I think he has a big chance [in winning].”

Grace Chan Delivers Memorable Debut

Since winning Miss Hong Kong 2013, Grace Chan (陳凱琳), has been heavily promoted. Apart from being the emcee for large-scale events and hosting variety programs such as Organized Dining <搵食飯團>, Grace was also given a substantial supporting role in her debut drama, Overachievers <名門暗戰>.

Nominated for the Most Improved Actress for her performance in Overachievers, Grace may have the least experience out of all the nominees, but she still has a good chance due to her rising popularity among viewers.

Grace, who is currently filming Captain of Destiny <張保仔> in Hengdian, spoke about the TVB Anniversary Awards, “Getting a nomination for my first drama role has exceeded my expectations and I’m overjoyed. I wanted to experience the TVB Anniversary Awards atmosphere, but I’m filming in Hengdian now and will need to go to Wuxi to continue filming for the drama. I will not be able to attend the awards ceremony this year.”

    Grace chan is not bad as a newcomer but they gonna give her an award for the most improved actress is a lil too fast aint it!!! I also think her ego is a lil to high if she thinks she gonna get the award and that really tells you something about the person

    If I could vote, I’d vote for Louis Cheung. Sammy is too OTT, Louis is a much better actor.

      Hi choco-bunny, I like Louis Cheung too but this award for most improved, Louis should get best supporting actor. So Grace will not attend the award ceremony due to filming. I’m curious to know if Ruco also has to film and will not attend.

        Rather anybody but Sammy. Don’t like his looks or his acting. His idea of acting as villain is to enlarge his already large eyes when he speaks. Has Louis won Most Improved before? If not, it’s still ok for him to win Most Improved if he can’t win BSA. Frankly, I’m sick of the hype over Benz’s Foon Hei. I can’t stand the way he pouts his goldfish mouth. Ruco said he’d be back in HK on 14th so he should be attending.

        I hope that means Ruco will win something since he take time off his filming to attend and Grace won’t.

        Agreed, Benz Hui didn’t really have to do much acting for his Foon Hei role, more than half the job was done because of his ugliness. 🙂

        Ya Sammy thinks he is so handsome. He has an ugly jaw. Ya and his villain roles means open eyes wide and protrude his jaw. Yuck. Louis at least doesn’t think he is good looking. So he is more natural and believable.

    Grace can’t make it? Is that an indication the award will go to someone else? She’s certainly no Dayo. You gotta be there to get an award.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. How many times can someone not attend and actually win? Dayo was probably the first right?

    It’s too soon for Grace Chan to get an award (for her acting). The award should be for acting alone, nothing else. 🙂

    Louis Cheung for Most Improved. Please don’t let it be Sammy. He’s not at all impressive as an actor. Louis is definitely the better actor. As for Grace for Most Improved Artiste? Crikey, TVB has gone nuts! Grace’s acting is so unnatural. Sisley Choi is way better compared to her. I find Grace’s acting coming across as fake but for a newcomer, that’s to be expected if she hasn’t got natural acting talent so she has a long way to go before she’s good enough to be nominated for any kind of awards.

      Ya Sisley is better and looks so much prettier in Overachievers. Something wrong with Grace’s face. To thin or just not that fresh. Sisley looks so fresh and pretty after her character turned famous.

    Personally I think Sammy has done a great job this year in both LW and ATBIS, Graces performance in OA was rather good, but it should be a little too early to get the award since its her debut drama.

    If they must give her an award, it should be a ‘Newcomer Award’ – NOT Most Improved. How can she be most improved when this is her first and only drama? TVB: Understand your own meaning behind your award names!!

    Grace Chan has a pretty face overall, although a bit of a pointy chin. But my goodness, her body looks like a 14year old’s – one who hasn’t gone through puberty yet! Her head is relatively big for such a small, fragile frame. Raymond Wong looks like an uncle next to her. I think she will play very limited roles due to her overall young/petite appearance.
