[Feature] TVB's 'Green Leaf' Actors - Supporting Actors Version Part 1

You've seen these actors in many series, but you just can't recall their names...or do you even know their names? In this special feature, Kay introduces you these "green leaf actors" (minor characters who always appear in different series), because they really do deserve some applause from us. Without them, how can the leads seem important and starry?

 Supporting Actors Version Part 1

Ram Chiang Chi Kwong 蔣志光
I'm sure you've seen him in many series before, often plays homosexuals, little man, and humorous characters. Remember the devoted "bo gong gong" in "Beyond The Realm of Conscience"? The funny detective in "To Catch The Uncatchables"? A timid husband in "A Watchdog's Tale"? What about James in "War of Genders"? He adds humor to the series he's in, a very likable actor.

Lee Kwok Lun 李國麟
Now 56-years-old, Lee Kwok Lun has been working for TVB for 34 years! He is those flexible actors, who can play different types of characters, but he plays villains in the past mostly. In the past 10 years, he's more known as a lawyer in "War of Genders" (2000), Man Kwai Fei's brother in "Virtues of Harmony" (2001-2003), an evil general Ma in "Beyond The Realm of Conscience" (2009), an introvert who craves father's attention in "A Watchdog's Tale" (2010). Of course he's in man other series like "Square Peggs," "Gentle Crackdown," "The Academy," "Moonlight Resonance," and many more, you name it, you see him all year long I'm sure.

Ricky Wong Chun Tong 王俊棠
He looks like those typical bad, rude, gang guys, isn't he? Indeed, he played many villains like gang leader in "Revolving Doors of Vengeance," different "dai lohs" in "Armed Actions" series, but those villains are nothing compared to the Tunmen rapist he played in 1994, it was surprising to see him play those roles! Besides playing bad guys, he's not restricted to good and positive roles like police in "Fly With Me," firefighter in "Burning Flames" series, and bodyguard in "The Stew of Life," etc. He made his debut back in 1985 and has been working for TVB for more than 10 years. Now 52 years old, he is definitely one of those memorable supporting minor characters in series.

Bernice Liu attended to an environmental event with her parents to promote Word Environmental Day. She disclosed she will release a book this year, teaching people how to use worn clothes to make clothes for pet, etc. She would attend to the book fair to promote it. Asked whether she feels she has disadvantage against lang mos at the book fair, she expressed there should be various things at the event, as an artiste, she should bring out positive messages to the society.

In addition, talked about Charmaine Sheh filed lawsuit against 3 Weekly, although Bernice is involved in the artcle, but she said: "I don't really know about it, because I wasn't in Hong Kong. (Support Charmaine asking for justice?) Depends it's successful or not, I don't really know about laws."

Mariah Carey Shows Off New Pregnancy Curves!

Hey, Mama!

Showing off an extra-curvy figure, mom-to-be Mariah Carey hit the stage in Fayetteville, Ark. on Friday to sing for Wal-Mart shareholders. It's the first time the diva has stepped out in public since a pal confirmed to Us that Carey is expecting.

Although Carey has yet to make a public announcement, she is "in the early stage of pregnancy," waiting until after the first trimester to share the big news, the pal says in the new Us Weekly.

Even her husband of two years Nick Cannon accidentally gushed about the pregnancy when chatting with fans in Malibu May 30. "Her bump is bigger. You can almost see it now...I'm very excited!"

Cannon, 29, later retreated a bit. "If & when my wife is ready to make ANY announcements about private matters she will do it personally," he wrote on Twitter Wednesday night.

The next morning, on his radio show, he added, "I'm pretty sure that when my wife is ready to make any announcement it won't be to the media, to the public, first," he said. "She'll tell her family, she'll tell her friends, and then, you know, when she's ready to share with the rest of the world, who is her extended family and friends, then she'll let everybody know."

Juno Mak, 2R, Shirley Kwan, Kenny Wong etc attended to Undercover's perfume party yesterday. As Gillian Chung's rumored boyfriend, Juno announced their "split." He exposed he's currently dating model Janine, who has rumors with him after filming MV together. Juno said girlfriend is at the party, too, but they arrived at a different time: "We're dating right now, after we discussed, we decided to publicize rather than keeping it as a secret, she's a model, not an artiste, plus I'm 26, it's normal to date, don't mind what others' said. We just started, we don't want to hide, willing to share it with the media." He expressed that he doesn't rule out watching Gillian's new film with girlfriend, because he would support good friend's work and movie.

As for 2R's Race, who wore a black transparent pants, said she wore safety pants, she won't go that wild: "If I didn't take precaution, boyfriend would yell at me. Been in the showbiz for this long, my sister and I never expose accidentally. Company said we're queen of precaution, even wearing things underneath T-shirt." As for being said that she did plastic surgery, she denied: "My nose is always like this, I'll be afraid if I did plastic surgery, I didn't do it and I'm happy, because that means I'm prettier."

Just returned to Taiwan from Japan, Vanness Wu showed up at a coffee dessert shop opened by his good friend yesterday. When he heard SETTV already applied to Golden Bell's "Best Actor" with his "Autumn's Concerto," Vanness said happily: "I'm very touched, if they invite me, I'll definitely attend."

Vanness' "Autumn's Concerto" settled his place as idol drama king. But he didn't decide to film any new drama at this time. SETTV originally planned to invite him to guest appear in new drama "Chong Wu Yan" (鐘無艷), but yesterday he said: "Time conflict, might not be able to perform."

In this period Vanness already rejected many new drama offer and plans to develop his career in Hollywood, expanding his part time business: "Many people think I should hold the current market, but I don't need to prove anything, it's good to just put yourself into it."

Besides his showbiz career, Vanness and friends' website "You buy I buy.com" is to be established. His accessory business is to break into America.

He said with a smile that he will make dessert for his girlfriend in private. Right now girlfriend is in Singapore and the two maintain their relationship through the phone. He expressed because girlfriend is not in the showbiz, in order to prevent trouble, he won't talk about her to the media in the future, and said romantically: "Just have to know that I love her very much and that's enough."

Leo Ku, Miriam Yeung, Elanne Kong, Aarif Lee, and Him Law etc attended to Solar Project 2010's event yesterday.

As for ratings of TVB's Jade Solid Gold is dropping due to lack of appearance of singers from the 4 record companies, Leo said: "In fact TVB created a very good platform for singers to promote music. Before I make my debut, Jade Solid Gold already exists. Viewers have feeling for the show, so it shouldn't end."

Talked about his assistant plus rumor girlfriend Lorraine is pregnant, he said: "I can tell everyone for sure that there is no such thing, just feel the report is funny, because you can't hide pregnancy, a while later the rumor will collapse itself. (Family is disappointed?) Of course not, they know it's not true. Besides I don't have the blessing yet to be a father. (Why Lorraine didn't attend to events with you?) She is only responsible for matters in my design company, won't attend to every event with me." Asked whether he will show up with Lorraine to break the rumor, Leo said Lorraine would definitely have a chance to show up, then everyone can tell for himself/herself.

Ah Sa Almost Got Schizophrenia When Filming In Taiwan

Recently filming in Taiwan, Ah Sa expressed when she's stressed, she will eat and drink a lot to relax, including street foods. In fact last year during the two months when she was filming in Taiwan, she gained 2kg already. Even director Lin he Long couldn't help but teased that her face got rounded on camera, why not change her name Ah Sa to Pizza!

Talked about her idol drama "Calling For Love," Ah Sa said her stress came from the fact she didn't get used to director Lin's speedy filming. She had to film more than 30 scenes in one day. Sometimes cry, sometimes laugh, she almost got schizophrenia!

J-Pop group SMAP originally planned to hold their first oversea concert at Shanghai Expo Cultural Center on June 13. But yesterday afternoon, Shanghai World Expo Coordination Bureau announced on its official website that the event has been canceled due to safety concern. It's said in order to avoid the the same thing happening at the "Korean Classical and Pop Concert," where more than 2,000 visitors stormed the South Korean pavilion and more than 100 people were injured, so the organization decided to cancel this event. SMAP expressed through their management company that they feel sorry and it's a pity.

Yesterday morning, Japanese media were already reporting the expo is considering canceling SMAP's concert. They said at the opening ceremony on May 1, it was a mess when visitors were fighting for their admission tickets to the Chinese pavilion. Plus on May 30, it was a stampede when thousands of fans came to watch Super Junior, BoA and Ahn Chil Hyun etc's free performance in "Korean Classical and Pop Concert." After the incident, many Japanese netizens already predicted that SMAP might cancel their upcoming performance due to safety issue. Considering SMAP's popularity and it's also a free show, the organization is worried the same chaos might happen again.

Once the reports were out, fans who planned to go to Shanghai to enjoy SMAP's performance were shocked and confused. It was until yesterday that the bureau announced on the official website that"with the rapid increase of visitors, it has decided to cancel the concert due to safety concern. Officials hope fans will understand the decision."

SMAP's performance in Shanghai Expo is supposed to be their first oversea concert since their formation in 1988. Besides the fans, SMAP's 5 members including Kimura Takuya are very excited about it. After the cancelation of the show was announced yesterday, SMAP disclosed their through management company: "Now, once we think about fans' feelings of waiting to meet us, we feel it's a pity, but we believe there must be another chance that we can meet fans in China who have been waiting for us."
