Freshly awarded the Favorite Actress award at Malaysia’s Astro on Demand Awards, Tavia Yeung’s ( 楊怡) road to success was not easily handed to her. After working in the industry for 13 years and playing a range of characters from an extra to a supporting cast member, Tavia finally has earned the acknowledgement for her acting. The rise to fame has certainly come at a cost because Tavia is facing more negative rumors this year, including the car-shaking incident with rumored boyfriend, Him Law (羅仲謙). But as a seasoned actress, Tavia has long prepared herself for this journey, so she will only continue to work hard and cherish the opportunities presented to her.
“I’ve never thought about giving up in the past 13 years because I feel like I have to make the best use of the opportunities ahead of me. I do have some confidence to win TVB’s TV Queen award because it is a reflection of my progress as an actress. But I’ve never had the luck to win awards anyways, so I’ll just approach it with a neutral mindset. Of course, I’ll be happy if I win, but even I don’t, it doesn’t mean I lost because at least I was able to experience the journey.”
Tavia’s lack of rumors and controversy in her early career led many to think that she is a very boring person, but she shared that in reality, there is a different side to her.
“I’m actually afraid of interacting with strangers because I don’t know how to find topics to carry a conversation – it doesn’t feel natural to me. However, when I’m with my close friends, I can be very crazy. When I’m home alone, I can also be quiet and get lost in my own thoughts. So my personality can change drastically.”
“I’m not the type to crack jokes and make people laugh, but if the opportunity arises, I’d love to act in a comedy and test my limits to see if I do have a comedic side. For me, it’s easy to do crying and touching scenes, but I think making people laugh is extremely challenging.”
Regarding her rumored relationship with Him Law, Tavia said, “Having both a career and relationship is very important. I need to work to support my family, but as a woman, I also wish to have a shoulder to lean on in my times of need. I used to say that I want to get married before 30, but now, I just let nature take its course.”
