Selena Li Considered for American TV Role
TVB held its annual Sales Presentation event to showcase upcoming dramas for 2018. Many current and previous company artistes were in attendance, including Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), Selena Li (李施嬅), and Ron Ng (吴卓羲).
Although Ron did not renew his contract in 2015, the 38-year-old actor remains on good terms with TVB. When asked whether he will film for TVB again, Ron revealed that he has remained in contact with the company regarding possible opportunities. However, he has not come across a suitable script that would fit his schedule yet. Since his departure, Ron has primarily focused his career in movies. In the upcoming year, Ron will be collaborating in a new film alongside Nick Cheung (張家輝).
Good friends Nancy and Selena attended the event together. Despite her toned physique, Nancy was dressed in a conservative red dress, while Selena donned a dress with a plunging neckline. When teased whether Nancy was purposely giving the limelight to her friend, Nancy said, “No! I just know what I look good in and what I don’t. All my girlfriends have fit bodies!”
Selena argued that her dress is not too daring. “It’s really nothing. Not too deliberate. I just returned from Shenzhen for filming, so I didn’t have time to shop for a dress. Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) knows my size, so she prepared this dress for me. I didn’t have a chance to take a look at it beforehand!”
This year, Selena won the Best Actress award at both the Los Angeles Film Awards and European Cinematography Awards for her role in the Hollywood short film, Once More. She is currently in talks about a new Hollywood project. Selena added, “Yes, it’s Hollywood! Actually, it’s an America drama. Hopefully it all works out!” Nancy added, “Hopefully she can help the Nonsense Club step into the American market. We can form a girl group and go film in the United States together!”
Nancy was also busy with work and will begin filming the new TVB drama, Justice Bao <包青天> next month. The two-time TV queen expressed, “I am very happy to be able to work with my good friend, Elaine Yiu. Later, we will travel to Mainland China for outdoor filming. Having a friend with me is always better, because we have to rent a hotel room for a month and a half. We will also have to go to Xinjiang for several days.”
