[Ta Kung Pao 10/09/04]
Starring Bobby Au Yeung, Michael Tao, Kenix Kwok, Roy Chow and Yu Chiu, "Shine on You" will begin airing on Monday and TVB arranged for the cast members to return to the school where they filmed to play a friendly basketball match against the school team. Although the artistes took the lead by four points in the first half, their energy levels waivered in the second half and the students clawed back to win 53-43.
Bobby, Michael and Roy all took part in the game, whilst Kenix and Yu played cheerleaders. Not only did Bobby pass the ball away, he missed his shots at the basket and was the second person to be substituted. Later, he explained that he does not know how to play basketball because when he was at school, he did field athletics and football and now he usually plays badminton. However, Michael revealed that Bobby just plays for a little while and gives up, so he doesn't bother playing with him. Bobby laughed that this was because he has so many series to film for, so he is always busy working.
It turns out that Michael used to play for the Hong Kong basketball team, but gave up after entering showbiz and moved to playing badminton instead. Talking of the student team doing much better, Michael says: "Of course! They are a school team and it is their home court, plus they are just in their teens and in their prime. We have to work through the night, so we aren't as energetic."
Roy and Yu have been the centrepiece of every promotion for the show and yesterday was no exception. They were seen to be smiling and appear to have made up with each other. Roy said: "We have been good friends all along and the reason why we did not chat at the first event was because I hadn't seen them for a while and wasn't quite used to it. Of course, now we have caught up with each other, then we have more to talk about."
Yesterday, Roy's performance on the basketball court was not bad and he has played before for his school team when he was a student. After entering showbiz, it has been a while since he last practiced and so he became a little tired half way. After being sentenced to counselling after his drugs possession conviction, he says that he has done a lot more sport, such as basketball, cycling and swimming. Roy laughs that he has arranged for a basketball game with his counsellor that evening. As for the report he needs to submit to the counsellor, he says he has written it, but is yet to send it on.
Roy says that he has done a lot of visiting, but he does not want to talk about it. Does he want to try and clear his record? He says: "No, I just want to send a good message out. When someone does something wrong, then it cannot be wiped out, but I hope that I can change and become an example and even if I am a negative one, then it doesn't matter."http://www.takungpao...0/UL-303947.htmhttp://www.takungpao...0/UL-303944.htm
