TVB colleagues tease Tavia Yeung at Astro on Demand Favourites Awards 2012
Hong Kong TVB artistes lent star power to the annual Astro on Demand Favourites Awards in Malaysia last Sunday. Many A-list TVB actors and actresses such as Wayne Lai, Raymond Lam, Kenneth Ma, Kevin Cheng, Kate Tsui, Tavia Yeung and Myolie Wu were invited to grace the prestigious event.
It was a fierce competition between the two highly rated TVB dramas, The Hippocratic Crush and Highs and Lows this year. The former emerged as the biggest winner, bagging five out of twelve main awards being presented that night.
Kenneth and Tavia, who had stellar performances in the drama, were crowned "My Favourite Leading Actor", "My Favourite Leading Actress", "My Favourite Characters" and "My Favourite On Screen Couple".
This was also the first time they had been awarded top honors in a leading role.
The 33-year-old actress turned emotional and gave a teary thank-you speech onstage, "I finally did it after 13 years!"
When Tavia was asked to thank her rumoured boyfriend Him Law, who was also present at the awards ceremony, she smiled and expressed that there was "no such need to do so". The couple was believed to be romantically involved after filming The Hippocratic Crush together.
The audience cheered loudly when Him thanked Tavia publicly after receiving his award for "My Favourite Supporting Actor". Raymond, who was sitting beside Tavia, immediately teased the alleged pair to "get married soon".
Unfazed by the dating rumour, Him even stood beside Tavia when the cast of The Hippocratic Crush gathered onstage to receive the award for "My Favourite Drama Series".
Kenneth, who played Tavia's husband in the show, commented jokingly, "I hope that my 'wife' will not be snatched by him in the second sequel!"
