Kenneth Ma TVB Blog: 冇錢又冇料!!
- Lau Siu Ming (Ming Sir) says that Kenneth is very clever! He does not leave the set when he is off work. He watches people act, he processes everything, and then he analyzes everything that he's seen.
- Ming Sir talks about when he filmed "The Master of Tai Chi" in Hunan with Kenneth. One time, when they were on break, they went to a very inexpensive place to eat. He asked him, "Why do you eat so inexpensively?" Kenneth said, "I have to save money to give it back to my mom!" Ming Sir comments that Kenneth always thinks that he doesn't have enough, not just in terms of material things, but also ability [in acting], so he always gathers information. Ming Sir says that Kenneth is complex and not as simple as he seems.
- Ming Sir says that Kenneth does not admit to having some results in his acting career.
- When the topic was on Gallen Lo and Sharon Chan's kiss scene, Kenneth admitted to going to the set to watch even when he does not have to work. Even Jaime Chik said that Kenneth is really good because he is on set whether he has scenes to film or not. Then the interviewer said that Kenneth's ears are turning red, but he explains, "I just intentionally went in to watch them kiss!"
(Kathy Chow has also mentioned a number of times that Kenneth is a good role model. She says that he is very hardworking, and he really puts his heart into acting. On the first day of outdoor filming of "In the Chamber of Bliss", even though Kenneth wasn't in the scene, he was watching the playback with the other artistes.)
- Ming Sir says that Kenneth is a good influence on others such that it makes them want to work hard, too.
Personal Note: Ming Sir did not know Kenneth's full name because he just refers to him as 'Ma Ming'. Ming Sir wanted to praise him using his full name. The interviewer even said that Kenneth is very hardworking such that he has a notebook to remind him of things such as the clothes he wears in different scenes.
Ma Ming again said that great actors 'put money in his pocket and don't ask for change'.
Ming Sir also praised Joe Ma, saying that he has reached a certain level of acting, and that Joe can act. He also said that Joe is hardworking such that he also likes to watch others act.
