23 March 2013 / 3 years 7 months ago

Matthew Ko (高鈞賢) always gave the impression of a decorous man ever since joining TVB after winning the 2005 Mr. Hong Kong title. However, he is willing to take on villain roles in order to open up his opportunities and change his image in the eyes of the audience.According to an article in Popular Asians, originally, Matthew was supposed to portray the rapist of Samantha Ko’s (高海寧) character in TVB drama, Friendly Fire . Unfortunately, he injured his leg and had to undergo surgery, thus losing the chance to film.Although that opportunity was lost, another one soon came along. In the currently broadcast psychological crime thriller, A Great Way to Care 2 , Matthew is featured as the eerie leader of a cult group. “Producer Marco Law (羅永賢) asked if I could handle the role, because there are lots of action scenes involved. Even though my leg just healed at the time, I didn’t want to lose the chance,‘ Matthew said.It may seem like Matthew was lucky to have been offered the second male-lead role in Man in Charge as his first job in TVB. In actuality, it was more like experiencing frustration from failure. “I was only 22 years old at the time, and I wasn’t mature enough. When the drama aired, people said my acting skills were poor. Producers then seldom contacted me. All I got were some small roles. Sergeant Tabloid is the last chance I give myself. If the results of this drama are not good, then I’ll leave the entertainment industry and head back to Canada.‘
