Malaysian-born actor Lawrence Wong’s career is on the rise, following his well-loved role as Fucha Fuheng in Story of Yanxi Palace.
The actor recently jetted off to America to attend the annual Asian-American TV & Film Festival, where he was nominated for the ‘Most Promising Actor in Asia’ and ‘Best Actor’ awards.
A few days before the awards ceremony on October 27, he posted an update on his Weibo page, sharing that he had indeed flown to America for the ceremony, but was currently “sick and groggy”.
On Saturday night, he posted a jubilant update, sharing with his fans his improved condition, as well as the news that he had won the ‘Most Promising Actor in Asia’ award.
“Thank you to my bosses, you’ve changed my destiny,” he wrote, giving a special mention to screen writer Yu Zheng, “for giving me such a good opportunity”, as well as his staff members.
He also made sure to thank his fans for their love and never-ending support, posting a number of pictures of himself on the red carpet, and posing with his award.
