[Oriental Daily News]
Roger Kwok appeared yesterday together with Kiki Sheung at the costume tryout for new show "Gak Sai Jui Wan" (Spirits of a Previous Life) and responded to comments that his character in "Mei Lai Joi Mong" (Not Just A Pretty Face) imitated the characterists of Hollywood star Jim Carrey. Roger admitted that there were similarities, but he didn't do this on purpose. He has always admired Jim and maybe he subconsciously acted like him.
Roger's character in "Pretty Face" is a rather nasty person and he reveals that he will become even more evil but he is not worried that he will become disliked by the viewers because later he gets what he deserves and he believes this will recapture the sympathy of the viewers.
As for Joey Yung's rather outstanding character in the show, Roger is not afraid that she will steal the show because he admires Joey's talents and from the start her character leads the show but it will even out later.
Also, Kiki Sheung will be playing Roger's mother in the new show and because she is only a couple of years older than Roger, her appearance seems more like a big sister than a mother, so they can only add some wrinkles via make up to make her look older, but she doesn't mind a bit as Kiki says: "Actually, playing a mother isn't any breakthrough, I am an artiste and it is just acting, it's not a big deal."
