“The Gigolo” Comes Back for TVB’s “Bet Hur”
There’s been some interesting develops in the world of Bet Hur <賭城群英會> that many fangirls will appreciate.
In the latest episode of the TVB drama, Dominic Ho (何浩文), who portrays Scott “Dashing” Siu, pretends to seek refuge with the To family in order to find evidence of their criminal dealings. In an act of vengeance, the To’s eldest grandson To Tai-po (Carlo Ng 吳家樂) gives Scott a gig in one of his nightclubs as a male stripper.
This isn’t the first time that Dominic has portrayed a stripper. This subplot in the show seems to be paying homage to the 2015 film The Gigolo <鴨王>, which shot Dominic to relevance.
In the Bet Hur scene, Dominic wore nothing else but short latex pants with suspenders, showing off his toned and athletic figure. What fanservice!
In related news, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) also had their time to shine on the same show. When his master’s grave was destroyed by To Tai-po and his crew, Kenneth broke down into tears and desperately started slapping himself. This scene reminded many viewers of a similar scene done by Ngo Ka-nin (敖嘉年) in 2010’s No Regrets <巾幗梟雄之義海豪情>. Ngo later went on to win My Favorite Supporting Actor at the My AOD Favorites Awards.
Bet Hur will air its final episode on August 4. The drama also stars Patrick Tse (謝賢), Nat Chan (陳百祥), Raymond Wong (黃浩然), Lau Siu-ming (劉兆銘), and Monica Chan (陳法蓉).
