According to On CC News, the actor, who plays the fourth Qin Dinasty Emperor in his upcoming mainland drama, “Chronicle of Life”, stated that he made a careful consideration before accepting the role.
Hawick Lau made a big sacrifice by shaving his thick jet black hair to portray the role of Emperor Kangxi in his new drama.
“It’s hard for me to shave my head for a period drama, but I also love the role. So I accepted the offer,” said Hawick.
Meanwhile, actress Zheng Shuang, who also worked with Hawick Lau in “The Cage of Love”, stated that this will be her first time starring in a period drama.
She will play the role of Consort Liang.
“Chronicle of Life” will begin filming this month, to be aired next year.
