  • Which veteran artist are you a fan of, and why?
    I love watching Lam Kar-sing perform because his vocal techniques, movement and martial arts ability are all top-notch. His performances were really compelling because of how emotionally invested he was in the roles that he played.
  • Please share an interesting anecdote or an unforgettable moment on stage.
    It was during a performance of the Hero’s Blood on Mount Pipa, we only realized that the usual table we used for a particular acrobatic stunt wasn’t brought on after curtain up. I was shocked at first but we improvised and used a different table for the trick. At the end, we were able to finish it despite the error.
  • What has been the greatest reward of joining our Young Talent Showcase?
    Making many friends who share my passion for Cantonese Opera. The program has also broadened my artistic horizons.
