Kenny Wong - Low Profile

Following on from the dizzy heights reached by TVB's epic 'War and Beauty', a reassembled cast and crew headed by producer Chik Kei Yi are back for more with their latest period drama 'The Dance of Passion', telling of the battles of two dominant families residing in the depths of the Chinese desert. One member of this ensemble has risen from the background and forged himself a name after riding on the success of the first few weeks of this series and lifted his profile up a level amidst the audience and critics.

A couple of months ago, if I was to who Kenny Wong Tak Pun was, I can safely say that 90% of people would give me blank or confused looks, or at most be able to tell me he was someone on the TV. After 'The Dance of Passion' hit our screens, the female viewers have really taken a shine to his pitiful, yet totally dedicated character of Sung Tung Yeung and with this step up in popularity has attracted more press attention than he has ever experienced before. So why is it that he still wants to keep a low profile?

Nnadia Chan, Sharon Chan and Lau Dan were among the artistes taking part in a TVB Weekly Fathers Day event and as Lau Dan attended with his wife,he was asked to be photographed with her, but he declined, saying that his wife was shy.

How will Nnadia be celebrating Fathers Day after her recent reunion with her estranged father? She says: "For me, every day is Fathers Day because I spend time every day with my dad and he tells me about things in the past. My dad's memory is fading and he has urinal problems, but luckily Cha Siu Yan and Chan Shuk Fun have introduced me to a good doctor. The fees are high, but for my dad's health, it is worth it." Nnadia has just applied for a karaoke members card for her dad and when asked what present she would be buying him, she says: "I haven't thought about it, I am so unfilial, but the most important thing is that I am spending time with him."

Sharon's father passed away in 2003 and at first, she was sad on Fathers Day, but now she will still be happy for everyone else who is celebrating. She says that maybe she is missing her own dad too much, so whenever she works with some older artistes, she always feels very attached to them. Asked if she will be choosing a more mature boyfriend later on, Sharon laughs: "I might do. In the past, I like young and handsome boys, but now I like men who are more mature, over 40 would be the best!"

Cast members from "Welcome to the House" including Chung King Fai, Lawrence Cheng, Christine Ng and Johnson Lee took part in a Fathers Day event in Tuen Mun yesterday, where they played games and handed out prizes from the sponsors, creating much happiness all round. During the event, audience members were invited to join the games and the screen family were very co-operative. With two daughters himself, Lawrence indicated: "I don't know what my daughers will be doing to celebrate Fathers Day, I think it will be a surprise. As for a present, I often get sore shoulders and arms from using the wok shovel whilst filming for 'Welcome to the House', so if I had a massage chair to help me relax, that would be very good, but as a father, I will love whatever my daughters give me."

Christine always puts her all into playing games and in one game, she had to sit on a riding machine and draw Chung King Fai's image with an extra long pen. The result was rather amusing. She says tha although her father is no longer with us, she still has plenty of men to look after, so she will be buying a massage chair for her father-in-law. A big fan herself of massage, she hinted at the sponsors to give her a chair or at least a 90% discount on one. She adds that she often asks her husband to give her a massage when she is a bit run down. Although Johnson's character in the show is rather shy and reserved, he is in real life very playful and active, so as well as hosting the event yesterday, he also sung a song as a gift to fahers everywhere to have a Happy Fathers Day.

Jessica Hsuan is known as a dog lover, so although she is currently busy filming for "Casino Wars", she still took time out to take aprt in the premiere for new film "A Bite of Love". However she had to leave early from the show to rush back to filming afterwards.

Jessica admits that when she was watching the film "Quill", she was moved to tears, so to avoid having puffy eyes for filming, then she says that not seeing the ending was probably a good thing. Jessica has six dogs of her own and one of the older dogs will be having an operation for its joints tomorrow, before receiving a further two months of treatment. As she will be heading out to the mainland and the Philippines as well as two months in Singapore to film, she is worried about her pet and says: "I am scared that the dog will pass away whilst I am away. If they die, I don't know what I will do and I may need counselling."
