Sponsors Provide Linda Chung With $4.5 million Gems
Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) was at her jewellery sponsors' showroom trying on her gems for the TVB Anniversary awards ceremony and extravaganza show today.
Presented with a set of diamonds worth HK$3.49 million and a diamond and rubies set worth HK$1.09 million, Linda said that she preferred the heart shaped diamonds because it matched her Heart of Greed <溏心風暴> character Sheung Joi Sum (常在心).
Linda admitted that she does like diamonds a lot, but she has never bought any for herself since she started working. Her mother has bought her a pair of sapphire earrings though. Linda says that from time to time, she will wear them during filming because she cannot wear costume jewellery as she suffers from allergic reactions.
With all the female artistes at the TV station dressing in their finest for the two end of year shows, is Linda afraid that she will not look as good as the others? She said that there is no need to compare as long as her outfit suits herself. Linda has selected a low cut strappy dress for the anniversary show.
Talking of Lee Si Kei (李司棋) and Susanna Kwan (關菊英) being hot favourites for the best actress award, Linda said that her Sheung Joi Sum character also left a deep impression, but it could not be compared with the impact of Si Kei and Susanna's "Dai Kai" and "Sai Kai". As for the reports that Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) is a hot favourite to win the most improved male artiste award, Linda said that she would be very happy for him if he won because they are good friends.
