Johnathan takes on the role of Fan Gun, Sze Ma Sun's simple-minded buddy in ancient times. What do you think of this character?


Posted Image

He's the total opposite of Sze Ma Sun but I definitely like him a lot so far. Innocent like a child, a bit simple-minded and a true friend :)

He always makes me smile in here :) and the way he reacts to KM's slangs/HK terms is just so funny!

I like him! His acting is also good in my opinion. He is the funny point to me because of his natural cutesy. Hope to see more of him.

I love Fan Kan too. He's so cute with his simple-mindedness. Agree that it's a great contrast to Vincent. Vincent is lucky to meet him in his first day of falling to the past. Fan Kan treat him so nice. Give him shelter and food and treat him like a big brother.

Cheung Wing Hong did well in his role too. I've already noticed him since MOL and CBML. I'm glad that he gets this role and more people are noticing him now. He's a versatile actor. He played a smart guy in MOL.

I was just wondering whether there is a thread for Fan Gun, and here it is. I like him here. He's so cute and innocent here and yes, agree, his acting is good. I have been noticing him in a few series now, very minor roles he did, but he fared well....like in Witness Insecurity, he is also cute there...and this is definitely his this time. I hope to see more of him in the upcoming episodes.

I'm actually happy that more and more 2nd,3rd and even 4th line artistes are getting viewers attention. It's usually the supporting cast that stands out in a series these days.

I think out of all the ancient people, he's the most convincing for me!!! When he acts next to Kenneth, it gives me that "Step into the Past" feeling - the super contrast between ancient and modern people. Whereas some other actors in the series, don't give off that vibe.

Well done!

if anyone is watching witness insecurity, he's also in there as "bao tye" (burst tyre)

OMG he's like my favorite character in this drama! So cute! He's so likable in here! I wish he'd have more screentime and his own storyline! I think his role in here has made me a fan!

Sad to say this but I think his character the "underdog" and honest person suddenly joining the war because of his friend is more interesting and has more chance of unpredictable development than Kenneth and Raymond's characters!

OMG he was actually discovered by Andy Lau and used to be under his company then through Andy's recommendation entered TVB! No wonder this guy used to be in movies! Yet he's playing such a small role in here! Andy really has an eye for talent!

Johnathan is also in the Witness series I might actually watch it just for him!

Ma ming is great enough in sima shun role and fan gen is good enough as Fan gen. I wouldn't switch them :)

Yea I wouldn't switch his role with Kenneth but I really wish Johnathan had a bigger roles in here his role and storyline looks more unpredictable than the leads. Don't I feel like the story of an underdog's journey of becoming something big is usually more interesting. lol kinda wish there was a spin off for the character.

And lots of minor roles in many series.

I dont say of switching role, I say of how he'll act out Sima Shun :). Maybe ppl wont say that the actor is too old for the role because Johnathan looks young.

But so far I like Kan :D. Much more than Sima Shun so wont complain that he needs bigger role or else.

Hope Johnathan will have meaty roles soon.

@RM1314 Thank You for the link! I just added him and made several comments don't know why I couldn't find it earlier. Posted Image

Is it just me or does his side profile kinda looks like Jim Tang 鄧永健 from Off Pedder.
He doesn't seem to have a thread over at the Witness Insecurity section. Posted Image Anyone watching this drama how is his role like in there?

@Sport: Unfortunately, thus far, Jonathan did not have many scenes in WI, he is Bosco's staff now in the Criminal Investigation department.

Love the scene where Fan Gun argued with Si Ma Sun that he wants to go to war. He did very well there. He is my fav character in this series.

lol I know Kenneth explained it in the drama but what does Kai mean? haha just love this character so funny his dialogue somehow turns into something so entertaining even if it's short lines! Definitely my favorite character! Wow it's been a while since I've liked a supporting actor with so much passion! Last time was in 2004 with Ruco in ATV's Project Ji Xiang!

Goes to show that a talented actor with a well written supporting character is always better than the typical lead roles! Johnathan (Fan Gun) and the 3 generals are the only reason why I even look forward to each episode.

I also like some supportings in this one over the lead, for example Johnathan caught my eyes whenever he is with MM. Not only him but for the female side it is the same. But I watch this one for Leung Ying couple, too. Aside from Kan, Liu, Kwan, Cheung, Chiu :D.

In AF, the most commented topics are Kaki and Johnathan's! Show that ppl are watching the supportings more. Good for them. Hope Johnathan will be spotted.

Well, they certainly deserve the spotlight. Kenneth is pretty annoying, Raymond isn't really interesting either, as for Tavia I don't know yet...

I agree with you and same for me.. well I think everyone has noticed him now because of his character as fan gun. haha.
So I'm guessing there's a chance we will see Jonathan raising!

I really hope so! But it really all depends of Virginia Lok and the tvb executives. Many supporting actor and actresses can act and have the looks but still haven't be promoted. Just hope he'll get bigger roles from now on maybe even 2nd and 3rd lead if possible

^Hahaha, the rumour about Virginia Lok's leaving is nothing but a rumour. So, let's hope they will hear the audience voice and start to promote these people who have acting talents. Apparently, I have heard nothing much about Jonathan getting praises by Hk viewers, apart from us AF-ers. Anyone has heard anything about Jonathan on other HK forums? I really hope he gets spotted by tvb.
Audience of this generation do not go for looks anymore, for looks can sometimes be deceiving, maybe? :) but more of acting talents, whether he/she is able to shine with the character, however minor their roles are.

Anyway, for as far as I know, on AF, Jonathan is a rising star. I look forward to his scenes too. Not sure if it's just me, the word 'Kai' when comes out from him, sounds so much cuter. I kept repeating the scene in Ep5, 'I'm not Kai'...classic!! :D

^People are not talking much about him because people in HK are too busy fighting and defending their own idols, getting themselves into war of words all over the places (in forums), about the two main leads , Raymond and Kenneth, which I think it's really unneccessary.
