Kenneth Ma (馬國明) became TV King based on Big White Duel (白色強人) drama last year. In 2020, he is one of the hot favourites for TV King representing The Exorcist’s 2nd Meter (降魔的2.0) and Line Walker: Bull Fight (使徒行者3) series. In Line Walker: Bull Fight drama, Kenneth plays a big villain which is considered a breakthrough since working in the industry for 20 years. He said: “My wish to act as a villain finally comes true! In the past, the film producers explain it is hard for me to play a bad guy because of my positive image.” When mentioned that Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Moses Chan (陳豪) and Vincent Wong (王浩信) representing Death by Zero (殺手) and AI Cappuccino (反黑路人甲) series were his opponents, Kenneth replied he let nature take its course: “Roger Kwok (郭晉安) told me becoming TV King once is TV King forever. We do not care about the number of winning and money is the most important. I need to save up and buy another flat if getting married.”

Stating that he was the first to crown TV King among Raymond Lam (林峯), Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Sammul Chan (陳鍵鋒), Ron Ng (吳卓羲) and Chris Lai (黎諾懿), but Raymond and Chris had children, Kenneth said: “I am not as rich as Raymond and he can settle down anytime, once finding his true love. (Work with Raymond again after 9 years later.) We become mature but continue to have childlike characters though. Both of us recalled of shooting The Four (少年四大名捕) drama with Ron and Sammul and we make a mess immediately, after taking wide shot. We feel overjoyed that nobody including film director discover the loopholes.”

Subsequently, Kenneth felt lucky to try different roles for the past 20 years and was criticised for his looks and poor acting skills previously: “Somebody even told me that he will not watch my drama. No choice. I have passion in acting , will do my part well and make the audiences watch my series. After all, it is subjective.”

Kenneth added he wished to participate in gay-themed film after playing villain role: “I wish to act as a gay and not funny “hehe” feelings but in a serious way resembling to Happy Together (春光乍洩) movie. I do not mind shooting kissing scenes and a good script is the most important. If I can choose, I will pick Chris as we are good friends and establish good rapports. However, he needs to get rid of his humorous character and give his full efforts first.”
