A hot contender for TV Queen with her role as a female pharmacist in All That is Bitter is Sweet <大藥坊>, Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) hopes that the timing is right this year, reports Jayne Stars.
“After working in the industry for ten years, I have confidence in myself [to win Best Actress]. It should be good timing! But I won’t give myself too much pressure. When I didn’t win the award in past years, I gained more maturity [over handling the pressure].”
Linda believes that timing is very important in the outcome of awards results. “This year, comedies may be popular. Next year, tragedies may be the trend. Hopefully, this year To Kai Kei [character from All That is Bitter is Sweet] will be popular!”
When it was pointed out that Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) is another hot favorite to win TV Queen this year, Linda said that she has admired her since entering the industry.
Denies Being Angry at Philip Ng
At a birthday party, Linda was photographed glaring at Philip Ng (伍允龍) for putting his hand on her shoulder. Tabloids claimed that Linda wanted to downplay their romance during the race for TV Queen and was upset at Philip for exposing their secret relationship so openly.
With regards to her angry attitude towards Philip, Linda clarified, “That was just an expression caught on camera. It was a friend’s birthday party and the friend is supposed to be in the spotlight. That night, there were only happy thoughts and no angry ones.”
