Wayne Lai Supports Raymond Lam As TV King
Since Forensic Heroes 3 <法證先鋒Ⅲ> garnered ideal ratings last week, cast members, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Aimee Chan (陳茵媺), Kate Tsui (徐子珊), and Producer Mui Siu Ching (梅小青) opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Last week, Forensic Heroes 3 averaged 33 points in ratings, peaking at 36 points with 2.3 million Hong Kong viewers tuning in. Becoming a ratings guarantor,Wayne noted that the credit was due to “Golden Producer” Mui Siu Ching.
Due to the popular reception of Forensic Heroes 3, the support for Wayne Lai to win this year’s Best Actor Award increasingly grew. However, Wayne considered that Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Raymond Lam (林峯) were good candidates for the award. “Based on acting, then Kevin Cheng should win. However, my vote goes towards Raymond Lam, since he portrayed the role of the devil in Men With No Shadows <不速之約> quite well. Raymond’s recent results can be boosted higher. More opportunities should be given to young people. I am Raymond’s fan and fully support him!”
Regarding allegations that Wong Hei (王喜) and Bowie Lam (林保怡) were kicked out of the Best Actor nomination list for this year’s TVB Anniversary Awards, Wayne Lai said, “If there were multiple nominations for one person, then people will complain that they are ‘divide the pork’ awards. Perhaps there were too many nominations and thus space for the nominees was limited.”
Aimee Chan dressed conservatively at the Forensic Heroes 3 promotion, thus losing the limelight to Kate Tsui. Aimee indicated that she had to film a series and did not have time to adequately prepare for the promotional event.
Jayne: Wayne Lai must have been the most frequently quoted individual on this year’s Best Actor winner. He has endorsed himself (quoted as saying he possessed 80% to 50% confidence in winning the award), Kevin Cheng, Bosco Wong, and now Raymond Lam. Wayne sounds as if he wants everyone in the running to win the award! 🙂 So who does Wayne truly wish to win the award?
