Roy Cheung (張耀揚): Press Archive 2010

Roy Cheung (張耀揚) had vanished (temporarily) from the movie/TV world after the shooting of a mainland TV drama series "Luo Gu Xiang (鑼鼓巷)" which went on air in 2009. (He later explained that, right after the hectic shooting, he had suffered from a spinal disc herniation. He was bedridden for about a year in/around 2009, with little contact with the outside world...)

In 2010, Roy resurfaced in the entertainment press, being caught off-screen on quite a few occasions. Though I want this blog to be more focused on his professional works but not his private life...I am a fan after all...and therefore have made his "press clippings" as below.

  • February 2010: Hanging Out in Hong Kong's Central with Male Friends
  • April 2010: Guest Appearance at Toni & Guy Hair Salon Opening Event with Jordan Chan (陳小春), in Wuhan (武漢), Hubei Province (湖北省), China
  • May 2010: Having a Good Time with Stephen Ho (何啟南) and Ladies at a Mainland Club
  • June 2010: Having Afternoon Tea in Hong Kong's Central with Female Friends
  • July 2010: Attending Daniel Wu (吳彥祖) and Lisa S's Wedding Party at The Jockey Club in Hong Kong's Happy Valley
  • August 2010: Meeting Remus Choi (蔡一傑) and Stephen Ho (何啟南) in a cafe in Hong Kong's Tsim Sha Tsui
  • October 2010: Attending Grasshopper (草蜢)'s 25th Anniversary Concert in Hong Kong's Hung Hom Coliseum
  • November 2010: Attending Jordan Chan (陳小春) and Cherrie Ying (應采兒)'s Wedding Party at Hong Kong Disneyland
  • November 2010: Attending Johnnie To (杜琪峰)'s Honorary Degree Award Ceremony at Hong Kong Lingnan University

Roy Cheung (張耀揚) in "Tong Que Tai (銅雀台)"

I just decided to open a blog to express my special love for Hong Kong and Chinese films and dramas...Here it is!

My very first blog post has to be dedicated to Mr Roy Cheung Yiu-Yeung (張耀揚), the Hong Kong actor whom I admire the most. He is a well-known veteran who has been on the scene since the mid-80's, but according to his recent media interviews, he had suffered from a spinal disc herniation and was not able to work properly for almost three years. 

Now it seems he has fully recovered...and I was happy to see Roy in random online media reports last year, which covered his appearances in charity functions, store openings, etc., both in Hong Kong and mainland China. (I will probably post the links to these reports later.)

His comeback film will be "Tong Que Tai (銅雀台)" (Literal Translation: Bronze Sparrow Terrace), a mega-budget mainland production featuring actors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and mainland China. The film is apparently a fictional story set in the period of The Three Kingdoms (三國), and the leading role Cao Cao (曹操/155-220) is played by Chow Yun-Fat (周潤發). According to some (unofficial) media reports, Roy plays Cao Zhang (曹彰), Cao Cao's son who had excellent military skills.
