Vincent shares how he survived financially tough days as an actor.
Despite his current career success, Vincent Wong (王浩信) had endured his share of challenges at difficult moments. Turning from a singer to actor, he revealed that he had only a two-digit figure in his bank account while he was starting out, yet he did not entertain the thought of quitting the entertainment industry.
“It went on for a period of about five to six years, but it was not always two-digit figures–it was sometimes three and sometimes four digits,” the 37-year-old confessed.
Vincent mentally gave himself 10 years to make progress in the industry. “I was a graphic designer before 20 years old. From 20 to 30, I gave myself the chance to do what I liked, thinking if I can’t succeed I would go back to my previous career.”
In 2011, he married Yoyo Chen (陳自瑤) and welcomed their daughter. Thankfully, Vincent had a group of friends which included actor Stephen Cheng (C君) and they would meet up to drink, make music, or play soccer, which made it easier to pull through the challenging times.
Wants to Do More Comedies
Known for his charismatic performances, Vincent was praised for his spot-on performance in Al Cappuccino <反黑路人甲> and has successfully shaken off his usual serious image. “Among all genres, comedies are the most challenging as you need to be really focused, but I really enjoy it.” Vincent hopes to make more strides in the genre and even work out his own comedic script.
Asked about the most challenging scene, Vincent recalled a particular screaming scene where mucus oozed out of his nose. “It was gross as I couldn’t control the secretion!”
Asked if he thinks he will win Best Actor again with this role, Vincent said that he has never thought about it, but hopes to film more comedic roles and make it his specialization. “In Al Cappuccino, I’ve had the chance to try it. I really hope to focus on comedies as a lifelong interest as I really enjoy it. I hope to try my hand at scriptwriting a comedy next year. I have friends who are also interested, but it’s all in the pipelines at the moment.”
