Wayne Lai turns down TVB management contract

A handful of TVB artistes, who were previously signed under TVB's management contract, are slowly leaving the nest. One high profile example would be TVB's number 1 fadan, Charmaine Sheh.

TVB has been negotiating with TV King, Wayne Lai, to also sign a management contract with them but alas it wasn't meant to be. Wayne will continue to work with TVB under the "per series" contract and his wife will remain as his manager.

Recently Wayne attended the Yan Chai Hospital 44th Annual Broad Member Dinner Gathering. He expressed that although he may be busy filming, he will still squeeze out some time for charity work. When reporters told Wayne that there are many TVB artistes leaving, Wayne says there are new talents to fill the void. " It is a fact that series is a help to the newcomers," he adds.

Wayne admits that TVB has been discussing a contract with him, but he prefers a "per series" contract with his wife assisting him. "I've been with TVB for many years, money is not the most important factor. Sometimes it's about the feeling," explains Wayne.
