Martell Low is a flamboyant sharp talking 50 year old man who thinks he is black like Snoop Dog and bad like Tony Montana (aka Scarface)
He dons tasteless non-matching bling bling and pairs it off with a funky hairdo that one would expect to see on someone a third his age. His audacious style lends him an air of arrogant self-confidence.
He spews ‘street lingo’ English sentences like he is from the Bronx; only trouble is the accent is all messed up (he is of Cantonese origin and sports a strong Hong Kong accent). He is well versed in Cantonese, Hokkien and Mandarin though.
Never appearing to be less than on top of the world, Martell is almost always in control of any given situation. Being the serial conman that he is, he unsurprisingly tries to better anyone in any deal.
But Martell’s luck will turn for the worst when he unwittingly falls into a series of traps laid by his nemesis – a 22 year old university student, MERC.
WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE MARTEL? Leave your comments…
The Rockstar – Patrick Tse Yin
Patrick Tse Yin began his acting career in the 1950s and remained active for the next 40 years. He is a versatile and popular actor, usually playing the leading male roles. He stopped acting in the 1990s after immigrating to Canada, but returned to acting in 1999.
His last film was in 2003 (Colour of the Truth).
Tse married a famous Beijing born Taiwanese actress Zhen Zhen in 1974, but they divorced in 1978. His second wife was Hong Kong actress Deborah Lee (狄波拉), with whom he had two children (popular Hong Kong actor-singer Nicholas Tse and Jennifer Tse).
Tse and his family lived in Vancouver after his retirement from acting, but his family has since returned to Hong Kong. Tse and Lee divorced in 1996.
OUR TAKE: Patrick is the ultimate cool Rockstar ‘bad boy’ actor of the old school generation.
The Comedian: Eric Tsang
Due to his popularity, he is often the MC in most events organized by TVB, and is known by many as simply “the Prize Master”. In his young age, Eric was a Hong Kong professional soccer player. He began his show business career as a stuntman.
Eric is known for being a short plump guy with a habit of speaking before thinking, often landing himself into hot water. His insults have led to him being assaulted by rumored triads over bad mouthing singer Joey Yung. Most recently he had to apologize for the crude comments he said towards Yumiko Cheng during a TV act where she accidentally exposed her underwear.
Nevertheless, Eric is also a talented actor and has appeared in many successful Hong Kong films, gaining actor awards and nominations. Early on in his career, he was typecasted as a bubbling, ugly, and crude sidekick, and it wasn’t until encouragement from his daughter to stop doing comedic roles that he went on to star in a film with friend Alan Tam and was awarded a Hong Kong best actor award.
Eric Tsang’ daughter is Mandopop singer Bowie Tsang. Tsang also has a son, actor and writer Derek Tsang.
OUR TAKE: He is probably a more familiar face than Patrick to the younger generation. What he lacks in cool, he makes up in comical screen presence.
