Wayne Lai & Nancy Wu awarded for loyalty

5 Dec – It was revealed that TVB recently held a ceremony to present staff members and actors who have been with the station in the last three decades with the "Service Awards for Long-Term Employees of Excellence".

Popular Asians reported that on 28 November, the event that was held in a hotel ballroom in Tsim Sha Tsui awarded actor Wayne Lai and actress Nancy Wu each with a gold medal weighing nine grams to celebrate their tenth year anniversary with TVB. Meanwhile, 69-year-old veteran actor, Lau Kong, walked away with the biggest reward, which was a large gold medal for his service in the last thirty years.

In his acceptance speech, Wayne Lai, who joined TVB in the late 80s, stated, "The past ten years have been very productive. I hope to do even better in the next ten years."

Meanwhile, Nancy Wu, who started auditioning for TVB in 1999, was rather surprised when she heard that she won a gold medal. The actress stated, "I was in complete shock when I heard that I would be receiving this award with Wayne. I have been watching Wayne on TV since I was very little!"

Surprisingly, comedian and director Stephen Chow, who enrolled in TVB's acting class in 1982, was awarded the thirty-year gold medal together with Lau Kong despite having left TVB in the early 90s to pursue a career in film. It was revealed later that the actor received the highest medal due to a technicality; the actor has never officially ended his contract with TVB.

The actor, however, was absent from the ceremony.
