21 Sep - If given the choice, TVB actor Kenneth Ma would prefer getting more cash than be an award-winner just like he did when he won The Most Improved Actor at the TVB Anniversary Awards in 2006.
According to Jayne Stars, Kenneth is also eyeing to get more acting roles in Mainland China like his fellow "The Four" co-stars; Raymond Lam, Ron Ng and Bosco Wong, but was forced to refuse several roles due to his busy schedule with TVB.
"I would rather have cash. The award is only meant as an encouragement. Do you swallow the trophy when you are hungry? The basic living has to be maintained, if not we can't talk about any ambitions!" he cheekily said.
He added: "Who does not wish to film Chinese dramas and make more money? It's useless to compete in the company. To be frank, if the company has more actors, you are able to head to China to earn the extra money. Who will want to stay in the company's studio to film for 365 days?"
When asked if he envious of his co-stars like Raymond Lam, who went one step of him to film in China and building a music career, Kenneth replied: "Depends on how you see it. Raymond likes singing, but I do not like to be a singer. Everyone says Raymond is being heavily promoted because of his social skills. I am not good at socializing. Everyone has a different path. If you want me to entertain you, I'll rather die!"
