Movie King, Kent Cheng (鄭則仕) has been working in the industry for more than 40 years. Despite lacking of good looks and stylish style, but he achieves brilliant acting skills and creates good rating records in every drama and film. After 3 years later, Kent films new series, I Beg Your Pardon (荷里活有個大老千) and competes his acting skills with Paul Chun (秦沛) and Elaine Jin (金燕玲).
When mentioned about rating record, 67 years old Kent did not feel any pressure and focus on the audiences’ responses and reviews instead: “We cannot predict the audiences’ preferences and some series achieve good rating record although not airing immediately. Some drama with huge budget might not establish good rating record.”
Kent admitted he continued to have deep passion for acting despite joining the showbiz for more than 40 years: “It is unnecessary to maintain it. For example: You like a girl and tend to monitor and make her happy everyday. This is mutual appreciation. Your love will increase if you treat acting as an interesting matter.” He felt fortunate to work in his favourite job and encountering ups and downs was worth it. Finally, it did not cross his mind to give up and hugging it forever could become good hopes.
