In the industry for 20 years, 39-year-old Yoyo Chen‘s (陳自瑤) career achievements pale especially in comparison to her husband Vincent Wong’s (王浩信) acting accolades. With their daughter now 9 years old, Yoyo is finding more time again to dedicate to her career and has more opportunities in recent years. The timing now seems just right, and Yoyo’s breakthrough moment may be happening soon.
Receiving praise for her acting in Life After Death <那些我愛過的人>, Yoyo was the winner of voice talent show Dub of War <好聲好戲>. After her success, Yoyo participated in new variety show Top Sales <識貨>. Later this month, she will be filming two dramas with one leading role. Foreseeing that she will be very busy working this year, Yoyo has already asked for her family’s help in taking care of her daughter.
One of the dramas will be a collaboration with China, and is an important project led by Eric Tsang (曾志偉). Previously the drama was being handled by executive Felix To (杜之克), but his recent resignation has caused many changes including a loss in funding. Originally, the female lead was to be given to a non-TVB actress, but now it has been changed to Yoyo. She will play the role of a female police officer who goes undercover to investigate a beauty pageant. The drama will also star Crystal Fung (馮盈盈) and Jessica Kan (簡淑兒).
Yoyo will also be joining the cast of police drama Invisible Team <隱形戰隊>, which stars Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Ben Wong (黃智賢), and Jonathan Cheung (張頴康). Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) and Katy Kung (龔嘉欣) are also confirmed for the drama.
