Wayne Lai Hopes to Collaborate with Sheren Tang Again

In recent years, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) has significantly reduced his filming projects. Since 2018, the three-time TV King has only filmed one drama per year. After starring in Death by Zero <殺手>, Wayne’s newest endeavor is another physically-exerting role in TVB drama, Boxing King <拳王>. Attending the drama’s blessing ceremony with Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), Owen Cheung (張振朗), and Shaun Tam (譚俊彥), Wayne revealed more details about his upcoming role.

Although Wayne has been diligently dieting, exercising, and training with a Muay Thai instructor in preparation for the role, the 56-year-old actor lamented that his shirtless boxing scenes cannot compare to that of the Oscar and Shaun.

For the drama, Shaun has also been dieting and exercising, dropping from 170 pounds to 148 pounds. Recalling his first boxing scene, Shaun said, “I felt phenomenal after filming the scene. I got home at 3 a.m. and woke my wife up to talk about how excited I was and my feelings. Fortunately, my wife did not get upset at me.”

Wayne joked that Elaine has the best perks, as she often gets to see the men topless while filming. Elaine laughed and said, “Don’t say it like that! Everyone will think I am a pervert.” On which of the male lead’s bodies is best, Elaine expressed, “Everyone’s physical bodies are great. However, Brian Chu’s (朱敏瀚) is the most proportionate.” When asked whether she has taken advantage to feel Brian’s abs, Elaine replied, “I don’t dare! I’ll try to when we become more familiar with each other. I’ve only touched Oscar’s abs.”

Wayne, who had career-defining roles in the Rosy Business <巾幗梟雄) trilogy, was asked whether he will play a part in the rumored Rosy Business 4 <巾幗梟雄4> series, as his costar Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯) will be returning to TVB. Admitting to have discussed the project with management, Wayne is excited for the opportunity to work with Sheren again. “How many ten years does a lifetime have? It has already been ten years since the first Rosy Business aired. I would like to see how everyone’s acting skills and methods have changed in the past ten years.”

  1. Wayne Lai was an exceptional secondary actor, full of charm and stole the spotlight in scenes. As a leading actor, I find his acting exaggerated and exhausting. As lead, he over acts in most scenes and does not have the stage presence to carry the gravitas of bolder charismatic roles. TVB clinging to the belief that “3 time TV king” actually is equivalent to being a good actor, is delusional.

  2. Can we not please? I can’t take the same collaboration and same storylines over and over again for the umpteenth time for any series or movies. What HK needs is new and fresh ideas. Not milking the same franchise and theme repeatedly for decades. Yes, literally, decades. This is the reason why TVB sucks these days. Lack of proper training of artists. Lack of talent. And lack of new and original scripts.

    1. @gnomageddon
      I agree and get so sick of them milking it to the bone. They are out of ideas for sure. They lack talent, ideas, and so much more which is why they are so downhill…

  3. Wow not surprised the jealousy and hatred towards Wayne success is spewing like a galvanometer eruption here by the same person who does that to every successful actor or actress article. Wayne Lai compared to every leading actors in TVB for the past 20 years is definitely an exceptional LEAD . The only flaw about him I have to say is he doesn’t have the height or the look of a typical leading actor hence his time as second lead for so long. Glad he got his chance to showcase his acting skills is most of his series if not all.

    1. @skyblue I agree with you that Wayne is an exceptional lead. I think his only drama this year was Death By Zero and he was pretty good in it

  4. Wayne is exceptional, but i feel like him as a lead has reduced the variety of characters he plays.

    I miss the comedic, crude side of his characters. It’s so boring seeing him play dramatic characters or serious boring characters.

    I always enjoy watching him, but he needs the right costars and script to go with it.

    1. @eleven but that’s every good actor, everyone needs a good script independent of the acting. A good script can partially save bad acting but not the other way around.
      I think Wayne is doing well in selecting his projects. His depth in acting is unparalleled.
