Dayo Wong: “Kate Tsui is a Versatile Actress!”
Famous Hong Kong comedian, Dayo Wong (黃子華), will return to TVB to shoot his new seriesl in late April. The untitled comedy about spinsters, produced by Man Wai Hung (文偉鴻) and co-written by Dayo, will also star Kate Tsui (徐子珊), Sharon Chan (陳敏之), Louis Yuen (阮兆祥), Elena Kong (江美儀), Benz Hui (許紹雄), and Jazz Lam (林子善).
Kate expressed both excitement and apprehension in working with the big star for the first time. Aside from his standup comedy presentations that highlight elements of social and cultural commentary, Dayo is also known for his hit television series with TVB, which are deemed as comedic Hong Kong classics. His upcoming return to TVB is widely anticipated by many Hong Kongers.
It was reported that numerous TVB actresses had lined up to audition for Dayo’s drama when he first announced the project last year, but Dayo finally settled in on working with Kate Tsui. Asked for his thoughts on the Highs and Lows star, Dayo said, “I’ve seen some of her dramas, and I find her very versatile and hardworking.”
Is Dayo afraid of creating rumors with Kate? “I’m more afraid if we won’t get rumored! I will do my best to complement [her].” Will he mind if he has to kiss Kate? “How can I say I mind if I have to kiss a pretty girl? I will go to hell!” Dayo joked. He then added, “But I do need to do more research on that department. I do want to go for things that will surprise the audience.”
Dayo revealed that he had been using up his current free time to go on solo vacations to recharge his batteries. Some of these vacations, Dayo mused, had actually been very enlightening and empowering.
“I went to many places. A while ago in Thailand, I passed by a really dark alleyway under a bridge. I saw a woman crying uncontrollably as she hugged her child, and I decided to give her some cash. I thought about giving her the rest of the money that was in my hand, but when I turned around, she was already gone. Giving something so little can actually change someone’s life around.”
