With this year’s TV Queen battle now between Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Kate Tsui (徐子珊), the duo are allegedly using various tactics to win at all costs. Tavia reportedly persuaded boyfriend, Him Law (羅仲謙), to sign with TVB in exchange for the award. Kate’s rape scene in Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒> will not only gain the audience’s sympathy, but also increase her chances for the coveted award.
Him Law to Sign With TVB?
Since their explosive “car shaking” incident, Tavia’s romantic relationship with Him was exposed. The couple started dating last year, after meeting on the set of The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>. Him’s standout muscular physique made him a rising star that TVB was interested in pursuing. With Him’s management contract with Filmko about to expire, Tavia allegedly will ask her boyfriend to sign with TVB, to increase her chances of winning the TV Queen award.
Asked about his soon-to-expire Filmko contract and whether he will sign with TVB, Him replied, “TVB has treated me very well, allowing me to train there like a Shaolin temple. I will do my best.” Asked whether Tavia had persuaded him to sign with TVB, Him said, “TVB gave me many chance. I will definitely repay them one day!”
Tavia Yeung Expresses Confidence in Winning TV Queen Award
Asked about Kate Tsui being her strongest competitor in the TV Queen race, Tavia replied, “I’m confident in myself. Every fadan wants to win the award. Since this year, the audience will vote the winner, the most important thing is that the audience likes the artist. I think we should face it with a normal attitude. I am good friends with every fadan, including Kate. As to winning or not, that will depend on doing my own part well.”
Prompted that Kate was currently praised more for her acting, Tavia said, “Really? I did not watch Highs and Lows since I did not have time. Thus, I do not know how well Kate did! My drama [Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles 名媛望族], is not broadcast yet, but it is an Anniversary series. The script is very good; the audience will have expectations. They should like me more!”
Kate Tsui Wants TV Queen Award
Kate Tsui also admitted that she would like to become TV Queen. “If you were to ask me, of course I wish to win the award. I think I have some chances. So far, Highs and Lows is praised by many people. I have not heard people say that I am not good; I am already very happy.
Asked if she was confident in defeating Tavia Yeung for the TV Queen award, Kate replied, “I have always admired her. I treat her as a si jeh, since she entered the industry earlier and has more acting experience. I am not surprised if she wins the award! But I will try my best to ask all of my friends to vote for me! I am afraid that I may not get enough votes!”
As to whether Kate heard that Tavia asked Him Law to sign with TVB in exchange for an award, Kate said, “No, I have not heard about it. I do not believe that Tavia is this type of person. Each year, there are rumors of such tactics!”
Meanwhile, Kate’s tragic “Drug Queen” fate in Highs and Lows delivered the right shock value and media attention. While attempting to rescue her younger brother in the drama, Kate climbed into the abductors’ shack and was gang raped. The scene was added last minute by the director. “I didn’t mind, as I was fully immersed in my character. My emotions were uncontrollable.” Kate admitted that she was so immersed in the emotions of her character, she was sometimes depressed after work.
With her performance in Highs and Lows being praised as award-worthy, Kate thanked the audience. Producer Lam Chi Wah (林志華) also praised Kate’s performance, especially in her rape scene. Lam said, “Three months ago, I told Kate that her performance was a big breakthrough. She has a good chance [to win TV Queen]. I will definitely vote for her!”
