In 2020, Zoie Tam (譚凱琪) gave birth to a baby girl nicknamed Baby G in October after tying the knot with her non-industry boyfriend, Enrico (莊日宇). Although she has a smooth family and career, but Zoie expressed her desire to play female lead role in Sharon Chan’s (陳敏之) show, Chi Chat on YouTube as a guest.
Apparently, Sharon and Zoie are disciples of Japanese musician Tetsuya Komuro (小室哲哉) and went for training together at Hawaii. They have a 22 years friendship and call each other as “old Zo” and “old Chan” in private. After releasing her first album in 2000, the company was in financial difficulty and Zoie had no choice but to return to Hong Kong. Initially, she was a host in Hong Kong Cable Television and joined TVB in 2013. Compared to Ali Lee (李佳芯), Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) and Tony Hung (洪永城) coming from Hong Kong Cable Television, Zoie only begins to show some achievements in recent years and is nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role (最佳女配角) Award in TVB Anniversary Awards (萬千星輝頒獎典禮) for the past 6 consecutive years, but returns home empty-handed every time.
When asked about playing supporting role continuously or the public forgets about her after one prominent role, Zoie chose the supporting role and explained: “At least, there is chances if I keep doing it. You said I gain some fame but where is it? I really want to ask. I keep upgrading myself but could not play female lead until now. Of course, I must fight for every opportunity and there is plenty room for improvements. However, I am not a very proactive person.”
Despite being a mother, Zoie wishes to focus on her career: “Let me make a clarification. It does not mean giving up my career after setting up a family. I really wish to show my achievement to my daughter so as to motivate her to study and in other areas.” Sharon and Zoie also confessed they had more passion than young artistes. Since joining TVB in 2013, Zoie is best noted for her roles in Over Run Over (EU超時任務), The Learning Curve of a Warlord (大帥哥) and The Exorcist’s 2nd Meter (降魔的2.0) drama. She also made a daring performance in Legal Mavericks (踩過界) series.
