Tiffany Lau on Growing as an Actress
Entering the entertainment industry after placing as first runner-up in Miss Hong Kong 2016, Tiffany Lau (劉穎鏇) had many opportunities filming dramas and hosting variety shows. Nominated numerous times at the TVB Anniversary Awards, the 24-year-old is on the trajectory for an award in the not-so-distant future. Faced with many challenges in this industry, she is continually learning and adapting.
Dropping out of university in the United States to participate in Miss Hong Kong, Tiffany’s Cantonese has improved immensely in the past five years, as evident in Freedom Memories (青春不要臉), which is her first leading role.
Despite the increasing number of opportunities and her positive career outlook, Tiffany recalled a time when she doubted her decision about joining the industry. After filming The Righteous Fists <鐵拳英雄>, Tiffany did not have any new filming jobs and suddenly felt lost. “At the time, I really didn’t know what to do with myself. So I took the time to go back to school, and took some online college courses. In two years, I completed and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I wanted to give myself more options in addition to my filming career.”
Due to her pageant background, Tiffany was worried about being typecast for just her looks, and sought more challenging and diverse filming opportunities. “There are many beautiful women in the entertainment industry. You cannot merely depend on their looks only. You have to do your best, and put your heart into every character and filming opportunity. I hope the audience can see my performance and like me.”
