During the dinner to celebrate the final episode of Moonlight Resonance on September 21, Ms Lok of TVB sat at the same dining table as the lead actors and actresses. Before dinner, Ms Lok raised her glass and propose a toast to Tavia Yeung Yi, "Ah Yuet (Tavia's role in MR), for your beautiful crying scenes! Cheers!"
This proves that Tavia has managed to shine and distant herself from the current crop of TVB artists - Linda Chung, Kate Tsui and Fala Chen.
In today's time where the internet is a powerful medium, numerous artists are subject to criticism from fans and haters. However, for her role in MR, Tavia has managed to avoid all this. Tavia reflected, "After Heart Of Greed, I was disappointed, seeing others being commented on, I wanted to be part of it too, be it positive or negative ones. At the end, no one did." She acknowledge that she was only average then, neither good nor bad. She said "I totally lacked in sense of threat, thinking that I could survive if I just walked along slowly. Never considered the crowd of people who is rushing forward."
It's a good thing that Tavia realises this. She is envious of Kate and Linda's achievements. She challenged herself, "How come other can achieve so much in such a short period of time? I have no background or support, what can I do to compete against them? I was impatient but had no way out."
Tavia's childhood was nothing extraordinary. She grew up in a public housing estate in Shatin. Her father passed away when she was 2. She was one of the few success stories of TVB's acting classes. She didn't come from any beauty pageant. Tavia explained, "I agree that if you’re from a beauty pageant, at least you will be known to the public immediately. However having come from the training course, you could be a step behind. I have never seen a journalist coming into TVB to interview the trainees."
Lee Si Kei acknowledge that her Moonlight Resonance co-star is the top pick for TVB awards, as the paparazzies are waiting for Tavia 24 hours a day. Tavia says, "I enjoy the spotlight and I treasure it, because I know I could be forgotten in two months’ time. In this industry, being good enough is not sufficient. You have to keep thinking of ways to keep yourself fresh in people’s memory. I want people to remember me, honestly, I don’t want to turn back…"To Be or Not to Be, Original Translation: lissy
