    14th April 2024 – (Hong Kong) Carina Lau, renowned actress, took the stage tonight (14th) to present the awards for Best New Performer and Best New Director. However, it was her eye-catching lobster necklace that stole the spotlight. As the audience eagerly awaited her question to fellow actors about the essential qualities of a professional performer, Carina gracefully adorned her neck with a magnificent golden lobster pendant.

    Aaron Kwok, known for his talent, responded by emphasizing the importance of potential. Dayo Wong humorously quipped that a touch of buoyancy was necessary, while Chinese actor Da Peng expressed that being handsome was a prerequisite. Yu Xiangning chimed in, stating that love was paramount.

    With over 40 years of experience in the industry, Carina Lau shared her wisdom. She emphasized the significance of patience, recounting a personal anecdote: “Why do I emphasize this point? I want to share a story with all of you. There was an actress who, in 1990, received her first nomination for Best Actress at the Hong Kong Film Awards for ‘Her Beautiful Life Lies.’ She was nominated six times and went through a 21-year journey. Finally, in 2011, she won the Best Actress award for ‘Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame.’ So, as a professional actor, besides waiting for the right opportunity and a good script, patience is of utmost importance.”
