59-Year-Old Michael Miu Goes All Out for Final Intense Car Chase

59-Year-Old Michael Miu Goes All Out for Final Intense Car Chase

Michael Miu (苗僑偉) declined the help of a stunt double when he and costar Hui Shiu-hung (許紹雄) shot a car chase scene for the Shaw Brothers web drama The Protector <守護神>. The scene being filmed was about Micheal’s car toppling over after getting hit, and he falls to the ground unconscious. It was the drama’s last scene before wrap-up.

His wife Jaime Chik (戚美珍), his Line Walker: The Prelude <使徒行者2> costar Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), and The Protector producer Virginia Lok (樂易玲) were on set to visit the drama’s final scene being filmed. After ending the scene, the director announced that the show has wrapped up, and Michael popped a champagne bottle for celebration.

Asking Michael if he felt he had put himself in danger for the scene, the veteran actor said, “What is there to be scared? There is danger to driving, period.”

Michael, who won TV King at TVB Star Awards Malaysia for his performance in Line Walker: The Prelude, added that he felt fine after filming the shoot, saying, “The worst thing was probably getting dizzy from the car rolling all over the place.”

Benjamin Yuen Spending Time with Girlfriend

Ben, who was there to visit Michael on set, said he is currently on a break and will resume work in March or April to start a new drama. He has been spending time with his girlfriend Bowie Cheung (張寶兒), and the couple attended an magician’s event together a few days ago. Asking if he has learned magic for his girlfriend, Ben laughed and said, “I may not be good with [magic], but that doesn’t mean I can’t do other things. I’m pretty family-oriented. I know how to cook and brew coffee.”

Ben added that he’s been feeling much more confident and comfortable with himself, and his private life has changed for the better. “Whether it’s my career or my relationships, everything has changed. I used to be a little fresh meat, but now I’m half-cooked meat. (Do you have any wishes for the new year?) I hope to be able to purchase my own property within the year. Bowie has an interest in real estate investments, but I only know about cars. I need to consult her.”

Asking Ben if he would be adding her name if he ever purchases a new home, he said, “Let’s see how much I buy. Preferably one level for my mother, one level for her, and one for me. Let’s see what the future holds.”

Michael Miu Reveals Jamie Chik Was a Hothead: “We Broke Up Many Times”

Michael Miu Reveals Jamie Chik Was a Hothead: “We Broke Up Many Times”

Michael Miu (苗僑偉) and Jamie Chik (戚美珍) are often regarded as one of Hong Kong’s favorite celebrity couples. Although the two are often seen as a loving couple, Michael recently revealed their tumultuous past in their dating relationship and early marriage.

Falling in love while filming TVB drama You Only Live Twice <飛越十八層>in 1982, Michael and Jamie dated for one year and then broke up. He even briefly dated Anita Mui (梅艷芳) in 1983. For the next few years, breaking up and reconciling with Jamie seemed to be frequent cycle. Describing Jamie as hotheaded and short-tempered when she was young, Michael often got into heated arguments with Jamie.

Michael said, “Both of us got into fights all the time and many people didn’t think our relationship would last. But because of that, I made up my mind to change her – every time we broke up, we would always get back together. During the days when we were dating, I felt like I was fighting in a war for eight years.”

Refusing to let go of their relationship, Michael always made the first move to apologize after they had a argument. Learning to always take a step back and compromise, Michael lived by this motto and managed to make amends every time.

Besides always being the first to break the silence, Michael remained faithful to Jamie in their 28 year-marriage. Although the 59-year-old actor managed to attract many females in the industry, Michael never gave anyone a second look and rarely had any negative rumors. The actor expressed, “I’m not a fan of all this trouble so I’m not someone who plays around. There’s already enough things going on at home. I’m not going to look for more trouble on my own!”

Jessica Hsuan Will Not Exchange Contract for Award

Jessica Hsuan Will Not Exchange Contract for Award

At the TVB Star Awards Malaysia 2017 held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on November 25, Jessica Hsuan (宣萱) won My Favorite TVB Actress (also known as Malaysia’s TV Queen) for her performance in My Unfair Lady <不懂撒嬌的女人>, making it her first leading actress award since 1999. This puts Jessica in the race for the anticipated TV Queen award in the upcoming TVB Anniversary Awards, which will be held in January 2018.

Having starred in two well-known dramas this year, Jessica’s asking price soared, and she earned over seven figures this year from endorsement and appearance jobs alone. Reportedly, the effects of Jessica’s win were immediate, and the actress’ asking price would continue to rise.

In a quick interview with the press after coming back to Hong Kong from Malaysia, Jessica was asked if got a raise. “I already got a raise before,” she said with a laugh. “This is my first time working with [my new manager] Ronnie, and he has helped me adjust [the price] a bit. Actors like us have seafood prices.”

Asking Jessica if she would be willing to sign or renew a contract for an award, she immediately said, “I would not do that. If you give the award to me, I’ll be happy, but if you don’t, I’ll be fine. I’ll just continue to work. There’s no point of doing something like that. The award would lose its meaning and I also won’t be happy if I win it.”

Would Jessica be celebrating her win with fellow cast members? “No time!” she said. “I have to fly back to Hengdian tomorrow to film another drama. Right now I need to run to the supermarket to buy my necessities!”

In related news, Jessica’s costar in Line Walker: The Prelude <使徒行者2>, Michael Miu (苗僑偉), won My Favorite TVB Actor for his performance on the show. It was Michael’s first TV King award in his four-decade career.

Michael Miu Didn’t Get Memo for “Line Walker 3”

Michael Miu Didn’t Get Memo for “Line Walker 3”

Attending the press conference for new environmental documentary Planet Earth 2 <天與地II>, Michael Miu (苗僑偉) expressed his excitement in being a documentary narrator for the very first time. However, when asked whether he will partake in a possible Line Walker 3 <使徒行者 3>, Michael said he is not aware of such production arrangements yet.

After the airing of Line Walker: The Prelude <使徒行者 2>, Michael did not deny that there was a chance for a third installment to the drama. In the finale, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) made a special appearance and viewers speculated that Kenneth may be the new villain in the third installment.

Michael expressed, “I didn’t receive any notice, but they definitely left the story open. However, I don’t know whether or not they would actually continue filming, that’s up to the decision of upper management.”

Asked if he would like to film the third installment, Michael said, “It’s important to see if the story could be further developed. The viewership ratings in Mainland China are fairly good, but I think we could do even better. If there were more time, I feel that the script could be improved.”

Leaves Award to the Younger Generation 

With his character a favorite among viewers, Michael said he does not have a chance at the TV King award this year. Michael said, “I don’t think it’s my turn! It’s because Cheuk Sir’s emotions aren’t as tumultuous as those of Benjamin Wong (袁偉豪), Priscilla Wong (黃翠如), and Pakho Chau‘s (周柏豪) characters. I don’t mind whether or not I’m in the race for Best Actor. In fact, I have high hopes for the younger generation. Especially Priscilla, I think she has a shot at TV Queen and I think TV King should go to Benjamin. I definitely have faith in them.”
