Started out as a Miss HK, Sire Ma made a breakthrough in her O.L Supreme role last year. Soon after, she had series after series, and one of the rising FaDans that TVB is currently promoting. When many FaDan and Siu Sangs are leaving, she frankly said it did not affect her confidence to work hard for a higher position: "They have their own choices, if they are really leaving, then it's a pity. This means that I'll have less seniors to learn from, especially Charmaine Sheh, many directors have praised her acting. She is my goal!"
"Obtained does not mean Money"
Asked if she feels the full experience of being promoted, she said she is grateful of TVB's support: "Don't mention heavily promoting or not, TVB really looks after me, giving me opportunities to MC, host and shoot series! (Satisfied with performance?) If I didn't do well, they won't ask me again!" Modest self-confidence is the exact attitude newcomers have.
As for TVB treating Sammul Chan harshly? Sire said shooting series is definitely going to be difficult: "It's not just TVB, shooting films is just the same! Although the salary here is in fact not high, but the most important is I like it!" She reveals that her highest record was she only got to sleep for 40 minutes in two days, but she enjoyed this type of 'school' lifestyle: "Other companies outside won't give you so much time to train, it is a really good school here. Sometimes it's not about the money!"
Currently Relic of an Emissary is airing, which is Sire's first costume drama. This is also her first time challenging a tragic role, she plays a girl that was sold to a whorehouse and even has a rape scene. She said: "When I was reading the script, I already started crying! One time my mom came to visit the set, I was so down I didn't want to talk, only sent a SMS to ask for her understanding." She said that when she was shooting the rape scene, she let it all out, only had a tube and underwear underneath: "I believe them, rarely does the scriptwriters allow me to portray this type of character, someone who is so different from myself!"
Sire appears to be an obedient girl, and she believes 'righteous' is the suitable word to describe herself. During her free time, she loves to look at horoscopes, she laughed: "In some areas I am a typical Leo, have lots of principles!" Her family background shaped her personality. Her maternal grandfather was formally in the military, while her paternal grandparents are college professors, her mom loves to pass on the principles in the books. Her family is full of 'righteousness', and Sire was already the class leader in middle school. How does she handle the difference with her company? She said: "There is really not much that I don't like doing! So far it's been quite comfortable, but I won't go down the sexy path or do bikini shows!" What disappointed her the most was the news that she was involved in a wealthy dinner party last year: "After all, the innocent remains innocent!"
Epilogue: Love, treat it as luxury!
Currently single, Sire is pursuing work more than love: "Dating is actually a waste of time, of course it is enjoyable. Like that night when I saw Cecilia and Nic at the HK Film Awards, it was really sweet, but relationships requires a lot of time and commitment. To me, it is a luxury! (Isn't that dry?) There is a relationship line when shooting series! It's okay, can be satisfying!"
It's easy for obedient girls to get up top
2006 Miss Hong Kong winner. After several years in series, her hair remains short. In 2009, she won TVB's 'Most Improved Actress' Award.
2009 Miss Chinese International winner. She doesn't say no to being sexy. No wonder she won TVB's favor to shoot several different series. Linda Chung:
2004 Miss Chinese International winner. Her obedient girl image has left a deep impression on audience. She is now an actress and singer.
