Although Raymond Lam (林峯) has officially left TVB, he has still been attending the promotional events for Line Walker <使徒行者>, which is slated to premiere on August 25. Raymond said he will continue to help promote the series as best as he can.
Speaking about his future endeavors, Raymond expressed that he is looking forward to more developments in his singing and film career. He stressed that he has no plans in establishing his own company and that it is better to work with an organization that already has a good foundation in the industry, reports Jayne Stars.
He also added that he will not sign with a mainland Chinese company, indicating that he is a Hong Kong actor and wants to be based in Hong Kong. Rumors say that Raymond plans to sign a management contract with EEG, his former record label, as he was photographed meeting with EEG executives recently.
Raymond clarified, “We just met for a meal. I am thankful to the EEG staff and the support they have given me in my career over the years. I wouldn’t talk about contracts with a large group of people, though.”
Has EEG, Sun Entertainment Culture, or Pegasus Entertainment approached Raymond about possible collaborations in the future? Raymond admitted, “One of those companies approached me. There will definitely be a chance for collaboration, but it depends on the situation. We have not discussed about it in detail yet.”
Raymond added that he hopes he will be able to sign with a new company at the end of the year. “Everyone will know when the time comes. It’s not like it’s a secret.”
Tabloids reported that Raymond’s parents were unhappy with his decision to leave TVB. The report added that Raymond’s girlfriend, Karena Ng (吳千語), was the one who persuaded Raymond to leave TVB and put more emphasis on his singing and film careers instead of dramas. Raymond denied the report. “We do not talk about our work and she has never hindered my career. I have my own ideas.”
Raymond emphasized that parents had never interfered with his career before. “They tell me that they will always support my decisions. That’s why I found that report funny.” It was reported that one of Raymond’s requirements in his new contract is that he has to get married. “What era are we in? Having good career developments is what I’m looking for.”
