Louise Wong recently expressed elation over being the only Hong Kong actress nominated at the upcoming 35th Golden Rooster Awards.
As reported on Mingpao, the model-actress, who is nominated for her portrayal of Anita Mui in the biopic, “Anita”, shared that she is still happy about the nomination despite not being able to attend the event in mainland China due to strict COVID-10 measures.
“But I really didn’t expect that I could be nominated. I am very happy. I will continue to work hard on behalf of Hong Kong,” she said.
Louise said that being nominated is good enough for her, as it encourages her to do better.
When asked if her multiple award nominations enabled her to raise her fee, she said, “It does go up a bit. I would like to thank the major brands for their support. I really am grateful. The most important thing is to have a happy cooperation.”
Louise is set to compete with mainland stars like Xi Meijuan (“Song of Spring”) and Ni Ni (“Yanagawa”) at the upcoming awards, to be held this month.
