[Ta Kung Pao]
Old friends Roger Kwok and Kiki Sheung will be working together on TVB's "Gak Sai Jui Hung" and although Kiki is only a few years older than Roger, she will be playing his mother. She says she doesn't mind but in order to increase the effect, she will be bleaching her hair grey.
When Roger was asked if he minded playing an older character, he says of course he doesn't mind as he will try anything. Talking of the drop in ratings from 30 points in the first week of his show "Mei Lai Joi Mong" (Not Just A Pretty Face) being affected by "Princess Pearl 3", Roger says that ratings are down to many different factors and it cannot be blamed on being dragged down. Maybe recently parents have been preparing their children for school so haven't been watching TV as much. He personally feels confident about the ratings because he knows that the viewers talk about it a lot and even use his "Go! Go! Go!" catchphrase as a voicemail message, so as far as he is concerned, the show has been a success.
