With his wife

[Oriental Daily]

The continuation to "Triumph in the Skies" is to be filmed at the request of the show's sponsors, but since the reports came out about this show's conception, there have been many other sponsors eager to pay large sums of money to become an exclusive sponsor for the show. After much negotiation, reports indicate that the contract has been won by a real estate company in Hong Kong, but they have also set criteria for the cast, indicating that Francis Ng must be in the cast. Originally, Francis had showed some interest in filming this show, but there are rumours that when he found out TVB stood to make a large amount of money by using his name as a selling point, he was not very happy about this, and as he is currently filming another advertisement, he has turned down the job.

When Francis was called and asked whether he was aware that the sponsorship contract had been won by a real estate company and whether or not he had pulled out of the filming, Francis seemed rather surprised as he responded: "Ha? Really? The reason I cannot film is because I have an advertisement for Sprite in China and I have to film there." Francis emphasises that he had already filmed part of this advertisement contract before he filmed "Triumph" and the results after its release was good, so the sponsors have extended his contract for him to film a fresh set of ads for them. Francis says candidly: "The salary for making adverts is obviously higher, it is all money!"

Despite the popularity of "Triumph" bringing fame to the cast members, it has not brought much in the way of material rewards for Francis. He says: "'Triumph in the Skies' has not brought me any more advertisement contracts, just that the sponsors have won the acceptance of the viewers. I had already negotiated this drinks commercial before the show, so don't think that I got the job because of "Triumph". It is because of this ad that I am not filming the continuation."

In response to this, producer Poon Ka Tak reacts excitedly: "Francis is not that kind of person, he will not be that materialistic. Artistes filming shows for TVB receive a set fee, for the company to then sell the show onto the sponsors is a different policy and a matter between the company and the sponsor. There are no conflicts of interests between the two. This is a sequel and not an advertising feature, the sponsors just buy the commercial break and will have no influence over the production."

With regards to Francis not being able to take time from his schedule to film, Poon says: "We don't know the broadcast date at the moment anyway and the time to film the show will only be about five to seven days. We have to decide the air date before we set the filming dates and I am busy filming my new show 'Family of Five', so I have to complete this before I start on the continuation piece. Of course, I would hope that all the original cast will appear and we will try our best to work around Francis. If we really can't do it, then there will still be many original cast members who will appear and there are many other story leads we can follow."


witout Francis,there wont be TS!!!

love him in "Old Time Buddies" as "4 Gor" and Sam Tong in "Triumph in the Skies"

did you see him in "Infernal Affairs 2"??? he was sooo good as that villian character...somewhat spooky. he was warm and nice to his family, but so cruel and cold with his actions.

He looks so different!

Posted Image

Francis Ng was a guest on a slimming programme yesterday and in response to his good friend Anthony Wong's comment that the Hong Kong Performing Artistes Association was not working for Artistes rights, Francis indicated that he is not a member of any society, but he says you cannot complain once you have joined. He says: "Once you are in, then you should know what it is all about. They are an association, not a union, so there is nothing to complain about."

Also, having gained a great image as a pilot in the series "Triumph in the Skies" last year, Francis had originally planned to take part in a special edition of the show, but he disappointed the fans by turning it down. He says: "I don't really like doing sequels and I couldn't fit it in my schedule, so I will not do it. However, I will make another show for TVB, because my wife doesn't like me going abroad and usually TVB shows mean you can stay in Hong Kong."

He is a really good actor. When he plays the bad guy, I really hate the character or him. I guess that is part of being a good actor. If I didn't feel so strongly then he's not doing his job as a bad guy.

He's a fantastic actor whose so versatile. It wasn't until TITS that i realised just how tall he was, like him and joe ma were nearly the same height, in the series that joe is in u can pretty much tell he is tall. But in all the movies i've watched with francis he never gave me the impression that he was so tall :)
Anyway, really liked him in TITS, he and flora had such great chemistry. It was good to see him as a good guy for once as he usually plays the villian role.

he is one of the most versitaile actor I've seen. YOu know?? I was watching Legend of the condor heroes 82 and I saw him in there! He was this little extra. It was the funniest thing! (just because we're on the subject- I also saw Stephen Chow too!)

REally??? I liked him with FlorA! I looved the beginning when they first met! It was soo cute in Italy, which was sooooo pretty! With Myolie, she was just so bubbly and young for him.

Anyways, I stopped watching TITS because I realized that they weren't going to get together, so I was like...forget this! I really wanted Flora and Him to get together! Hopefully they'll be a sequel but too bad Flora is not with TVB anymore!

in IA2 i luv Francis's character, Ah Hau, the most! it's hard 2 tell that he's a baddie, because he's so calm all the time, but that's wat i find so d@mn cool about his character. i luv how Ah Hau (his character) luv his family so much & thatz wat cause him 2 lose control of himself when Eric was threaten 2 kill his family in Hawaii. thatz y my fav scene of IA2 is the last scene of Francis (his dyin scene) when pointing the gun at Eric's head... lookin at Francis' face, u know he was hesitant 2 do so, but wanted 2, because Eric was threaten 2 kill his family & stuff. Francis totally deserves his nomination 4 Best Actor! i luv watchin Francis playin a baddie, because 2 b frankly honest, i have seen enough of his funny-funny characterz!

Francis is one of the most talented actors in HK. I respect him for his versatility in his acting. :worship He has acted numerous characters before, mostly as baddies. However, it seems that the audience always accept his role with such an ease.

Yeah, i also like his character in Internal Affairs 2. Besides that, anyone still remember his character as Mad Kwan, in Young and Dangerous?

Me too wont be bothered to watch TITS if it wasn't for Francis Ng in there.
He's one of my favourite actor that is so so good that I think he deserves more credits in everything he stars in!

I have yet to watch TITS, but I can't wait to see it ^_^'
He's really amazing when he is in IA too!!! My god, just look at the way he acts and his character itself. He brought himself so well and potrayed the character so good, I think I fell in love with him!

Btw, does anyone knows what his wife's name is? Is she someone famous? So lucky! :worship

Triumph was good or should i say "is" good. :dance
Too bad he wouldn't accept the contract. :xiao3: How could he?
All well! Let's hope he change his mind sooner or later. Then we all will be happy!!!! Won't we? :loool:

I started noticing him in "Ai Qing Bai Mian Bao" Love Bakery. I think he's so nerd and makes me cried so much as he secretly can give his everything to michelle reis. And i realised i've watch so much of his movie b4 but didn't much care.

He is such GOOD ACTOR and HUSBAND! In interview and acticle.. he constantly talk abt his wife. Always will go home early to accompany her wife and stuff... It's so hard to find such a gd husband plus he's a famous hk actor! Unlike some actors whom have mix love relationship... blah blah...
Francis waited for his wife to marry him for 3 years. Isn't HE SO DEVOTED! He wanted to get marry very soon because he want to have baby soon too~ =D He can cook as well! And Francis is so handsome n charming!! His wife is so lucky to have him~ *envy*

People support Francis as he is not only a good actor~ he is a gd man!!!

He's currently filming an English movie "One Last Dance" (I think that's the name) with Di Long & Vivien Hsu in Singapore. Man, 3 days ago, he came to my company, with his wife, to buy something. I took a photo with him, he's so friendly, always smiling. Even when many of us request to take photos with him, he still put on a smily face. What a great person with no airs like other big stars.

Then, Di Long came with his wife at around 7pm to meet up with the couple for dinner. But I left office then. So sad, did not get to see Di Long. :(

Francis is a good actor! That's why they asked him for this role... and TVB did the right thing making Francis as the leading actor as it make it Triumph in the Skies a sucessful drama.

Sammuel (Francis Ng) is the TVB magazine No.1 fav role/

Triumph in the Skies No.1 fav drama.
