Mary Hon Named "The Most Heartless Mother"

Recently, veteran actress Mary Hon's popularity has been on the rise. She is practically seen in every TVB series. The audience really have to have good eyes to be able to distinguish which series is which.

A Netizen posted screen captures of all the series in which Mary Hon has been a mother abandoning her children. She was named the "Most Heartless Mother" -- Sam Tong (Francis Ng) in Triumph in the Skies, Ken Ma (Joe Ma) in Vigilante Force, Tong Tong (Kate Tsui) in Speech of Silence, Yu Jai (Tavia Yeung) in The Hippocratic Crush, and the latest being See Hing (Jason Chan) in Missing You and Kam Bo Tei (Sammy Leung) in Friendly Fire.

[Excerpt from an article by Yang Cheng Evening News] In a Mainland interview, the reporter mentioned Mary has been acting for many years and portrayed so many different characters, sometimes the roles get repetitive. Mary was asked whether she had a time where she felt exhausted? She said: "I've been with TVB for so many years, and have tried every type of role, such as a drug user, a vegetable lady, a rich wife and other villain roles… of course there will be a bottleneck period. I would think, why am I portraying the same role over and over again? Is it because I can only portray one type of role? But even if the roles are the same, there are still differences. For example, a mother reuniting with her son. One mother is a judge, and the other mother is an Alzheimer's patient. The performance is definitely different. It is the artist's responsibility to let the audience see the differences in each role." The next question was whether Mary ever thought of leaving TVB? She said: "I'm getting older, so I place heavy emphasis on friendship/relationship. I've been with TVB for so many years and they have treated me well. Damian Lau greatly influenced me on this aspect, he said I grew up in TVB and when TVB is a crisis, I should stay in the battlefield and help them fight. This is very reasonable."

Plz leave ASAP! Mary you are better without TVB, Damian left himself so who is he to speak abt this matter.
Mary if you stay in the battlefield you will be sacrificed Posted Image TVB know they don't stand a chance against the others in terms of quality, originality etc and that's why they are so afraid of competition. HKers can't stop watching TVB series bc they have become stupid after watching too much TVB series Posted Image so glad I quit just in time before being completely brainwashed Posted Image

Even if TVB wins the battle those who fought the battle won't get any rewards, but will be sent to Antarctica.

she is a good veteran actress and i m sure that she has other offers, probably just hard to make a change since she really has been there most of her life (20s to 60s Posted Image)

Wow, what a good generalization you place on people from Hong Kong. Feel better much? Where's the proof that Damian left himself?

Nope, Damien did not leave his 'nest'. He'll be back filming when he is required to.

Damien has been away from TVB e.g filming in mainland and even for ATV. What I meant is that he shouldn't talk abt loyalty, when he obviously has an open relationship with TVB whereas Mary has an exclusive one.

I wonder if Mary got any offers from the new company or China?? I just rewatched God of Sabre 79 with Mary and Damian. They are truly long time friends and glad they still are all these years. TVB is losing so many celebs lately... I wonder if they can survive when CTI and Now TV starts to release their series??

Ricky Wong love those green leaves bc he know how valuable they are. Green leaves can make a series look decent even with leads that are totally rubbish.

I have read other actors/actress saying the same.Unfortunately, there are many judgemental people who castigate actors/actress as having no talent or no improvements if they played similar roles.

It's a little unfair to label her as the most heartless mother lol.. but I have to say she indeed is 'heartless' - all the roles she had tend to make you despise her characters, and that also means she's good at portraying them.
