TVB to Sign Miss Hong Kong Beauty, Virginia Lau

One of the earlier hot favorites in the 2013 Miss Hong Kong pageant, Virginia Lau (劉溫馨) was not placed in the top three. However, that does seem to put a damper on the Central Academy of Drama graduate from Beijing, who has been shortlisted by TVB to sign as an artist.

With experience from filming advertisements to mini movies, Virginia is considered a good fit for TVB. When reporters asked TVB senior executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲) to confirm the news, she happily said, “The Miss Hong Kong contestants this time are all have pleasant faces which are well-received by family viewers, especially Virginia Lau. She has the making of an actress.”

Ms. Lok also confirmed that TVB has arranged for an internal meeting between the executives and producers on September 5 to sign the pageant winners and allow the contestants interviews slots.

With such good news, it is no surprise that 22-year-old Virginia was not at all disappointed that she was only placed in the fourth position in the pageant finals. She said, “I feel I have room for improvement. The performances of the top three must be very good.” Virginia indicated that she is interested in pursuing a master’s degree or becoming an artist.

Families’ Welcome

After the pageant on Sunday night, Virginia was chauffeured back to Huangpu, Guangzhou. She lost her way while looking for her address.

Newly crowned Miss Hong Kong Grace Chan (陳凱琳), first runner-up Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) and second runner-up Moon Lau (劉佩玥), together with Miss Friendship, Tammy Ou Yang (歐陽巧瑩), remained behind until 2 a.m. for a TVB photography shoot.

Following that, they were chauffeured home to their respective residences. While Grace’s father welcomed her with open arms at the doorstep of their luxurious Kowloon Tong house, and Sisley’s father also came to the car to walk her daughter home. It was a cold welcome for Moon and Tammy with no family members waiting for them.

    I like her the best based on her photos. However, I heard that she speaks accented Cantonese. Maybe another Rebecca Zhu and Christine Kuo! Since she is a drama graduate from Beijing, perhaps she can act without much training!!

        They can always dub her if her Cantonese is not good.

      • Puff replied:

        Dubbing is less annoying, but I found after a few episodes of Christine Kuo’s dubbed performance, it’s still annoying.

    Not that excited to see her onscreen actually. I am more excited to see Gloria Tang’s first role. She is fluent in Cantonese, which may be an advantage!

    Im actually really looking forward to seeing more of Sisley Choi! She’s very natural onscreen imo, so if she does choose to develop in an acting career i think she may have potential and do well.

      same! I actually find Sisley and Grace more “real” and natural than Virginia Lau. imo I think Virginia sounds too rehearsed that it seems like she’s trying too hard.

    For some weird reason, I could visualize in my head Sisley choi becoming a well known actress and possibly drama queen. I kinda liked her personality.

    I think Virginia will be promoted by TVB but her acting skills are up in the air. With a performance degree I’m hoping she is like Lin Xia Wei in terms of acting but her on-stage performance at Miss Hong Kong was rather unnatural and rehearsed – hard for me to imagine her as an actress.

    Grace will probably be given a mix of hosting and acting roles and depending on where she gets better feedback TVB will probably hone her in that category. I imagine her going down the Tracy Chu route.

    Sisley seems like the best choice for an actress right now but I just wonder if her personality might rub some people the wrong way.

    I can see Moon being a “The Scoop” presenter.

    I think they might also sign Tammy and Vicky.

      My thought exactly, but not just her though, previous MS HK winners make me wonder if the judges have vision problems
