HK Media Say TVB Is Grooming Hubert Wu, 31, To Be The Next Raymond Lam
They say TVB has been on the lookout for a “good-looking male star who can sing and act” since Raymond left the company in 2014.
Hongkong media are saying that TVB has plans to groom its next generation of stars whom they hope can save the station's dwindling ratings.
Enter Hubert Wu, who made his showbiz debut in 2010 after coming in second in singing contest The Voice 2.
The 31-year-old has been getting a lot more exposure, at least more than the average TVB actor.
He was the star of A Love Of No Words, which recently wrapped its run, and Hello Misfortune, which premiered on Dec 27. It's uncommon for the broadcaster to air back-to-back dramas with the same lead actor so that's saying a lot about Hubert's future with the company.
On top of that, he also sung the theme song for three TVB dramas last year, a sign that he's been getting a lot of opportunities to showcase his repertoire of skills.
