Receiving two TVB Best Actress nominations for Murder Diary <刑偵日記> and The Line Watchers <把關者們>, Venus Wong (王敏奕) seems to be starring in all the buzzworthy dramas these days.
Given her countless opportunities, the 29-year-old was asked if she hopes to win Best Actress this year. “It would be great if I did. Everyone wants an award. It would be an honor if I did get it,” Venus admitted. However, she believes that every drama has its own fate in terms of ratings, so all she can do is enjoy the filming process.
In The Line Watchers, Venus portrays Madam Wong, who struggles to get along with her team despite being the customs supervisor. Given that her character is the complete opposite of her real personality, Venus had suffered from insomnia because she lacked the confidence in playing her role. After putting on the uniform, she could suddenly envision herself in the position. “During our first script reading, Moon Lau (劉佩玥) said I sounded funny because I spoke very robotically.” Understanding that her voice is weak, Venus tries to add more power to her line delivery, as well as try to communicate with her eyes. When filming started, Venus became more persuasive in her character.
“My mom said that I will become the character when the personality shows,” Venus said. She expressed that her family is very proud of her accomplishments.
Although Venus has two more upcoming TVB dramas Bystander <旁觀者> and Forensic Heroes 5 <法證先鋒V>, her biggest goal is to win a Hong Kong Film Award. She believes that an award is not always necessary to prove one’s ability. “I am already satisfied if people think that I am a professionally qualified actress.”
