The drama, The Life and Times of A Sentinel <紫禁驚雷> that Steven Ma (馬浚偉) took pains to finish will be broadcasting it’s finale today. This caused him to have mixed feelings in recent days, anxiously anticipating for the ratings to hit the ceiling but at the same time, afraid that he might feel dejected.
The periodic drama that Steven Ma is the main leading man for, will be ending its run tonight. Towards the series that he toiled hard to film finally coming to end, Steven professed that he had mixed feelings, hoping for the last episode to air soon so that viewers could see the fruit of the labor by the entire drama team of cast and crew. But at the same time, he was also afraid for all good things to come to an end and thus felt dejected and unwilling to part with it (the drama series).
Becomes Scheming for Revenge
*Warning: Spoilers for The Life and Times of A Sentinel Ahead*
Steven expressed that the drama series, The Life and Times of A Sentinel < 紫禁驚雷>, has a substantial position in his acting career and filming journey thus far, “I have never acted before such intense hatred character like Nip Dor-Po. The week leading up to the finale, he will undergo a massive psychological change, to seek revenge, he will become extremely scheming, and during the last few remaining episodes, he will also break away from Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) character, Fuk-Tsuen, and both men will seek closure and have a clean break once and for all. The ending will be very tragic but someone will also jump out and reveal an earth-shattering secret. I really anticipate the viewers’ reaction to our drama’s finale.”
Steven Ma Is Brothers with Kenneth Ma
Steven revealed that he had a pleasant time co-operating with Kenneth, “This time our filming duration is short and especially since this is also a big palace court-themed drama thus it was a rather tough filming experience. However, thankfully, the cast and crew were very diligent and my fellow counterpart Kenneth is an actor who’s more than willing to communicate and interact. Furthermore, since both of us share the same surname, ‘Ma’ (馬), it was such a comfortable collaboration that we were such good friends, akin to brothers.”
As for the viewership ratings, Steven professed that he was overall just satisfied with it, “For the previous few weeks, the ratings have been fluctuating between 26 and 27 points. However the previous dramas that were broadcasted at the same 8.30 PM time slot as our drama, have all suffered relatively low ratings. Thus, I greatly anticipate for the final episode to receive a high viewership rating.”
