游飈先生,生於1968年,香港演員,曾在TVB和HKTV工作。他曾經考慮取一個藝名,但後來還是使用本名。他曾經在TVB的節目「大時代」,一人出演多個角色而成為話題。現在已離開幕前工作,轉投商界,並設立一家公司,成為老闆。

Yau Piu, born in August 25, 1968. He is a actor, artist of  TVB and HKTV. On the other hand, he has worked as a film voice over, the main role for the news announcer voice. Before he started to become a actor, he worked as a salesman, responsible for promoting energy-saving systems. He joined TVB  about 21 years ago and then moved to the HKTV. In 2015, TVB replays the TV programme call “Big Time”, the audience was attracted by his great acting.

從一開始聊天,游飈就直言當演員是一件苦差事。演員是人,需要吃飯的,看著保安員的薪金都比自己高,他就知道是時候要離開這個行業。而且,每次演出都離不開某幾類角色,即使對演戲再有熱誠都會逐漸磨滅。他認為在香港當藝人,只有家財萬貫的人才能勝任,否則一個月只有六千元底薪,誰人可以維生?而且,在演出次數不足的情況下,還要還錢給公司,根本無辦法生存。

From the beginning, Mr. Yau said being a actor is not easy. Actor also need to take care of family expenses. However, when he knew the security officer’s salary is higher than himself, he knew it was time to leave the industry. Moreover, each of the performance are inseparable from a certain type of role, even if there is enthusiasm for the acting will gradually disappear. He believes that being a artist in Hong Kong, only the wealthy people can be competent. Only have the basic salary (six thousand dollars), who can survive? After that, in the case of insufficient number of performances, the actor have to pay back to the company, there is no way to survive! He said.

所以,當HKTV出現後,許多人都認為有新希望,都紛紛轉到那裡工作。因為在新公司可以感受到最初對影視行業的熱情。無論是拍攝工具、題材、劇本、工作團隊,HKTV都投放了大量資金,這份積極和認真的態度是非常難得的。但無奈政府不發牌給他,我們可以怎樣?無辦法,這就是我們的社會。

Therefore, when the HKTV appeared, many people believe that there is a new hope. So, that explain why a lot of people were willing to work for HKTV. It is because they can feel the initial enthusiasm for the film and television industry in the new company. Whether the shooting tools, themes, scripts, work teams, HKTV have invested a lot of money, the positive and serious attitude is very rare. But at the same time, the government don’t let them to survive, what can we do? And the answer is No Way. This is our society. He said.

世界各地都將中國市場視為一個好機遇,而且他們人材眾多,香港演員還有前途嗎?中國有多所演藝學院,他們的學生多材多藝,從小培養到大,可以說是萬中無一,而且不介意免費演出,甚至要求他們付出更多也可以。我們要在競爭之中勝出,就要知道自己的價值何在。

The Chinese market as a good opportunity for the whole world, and there have a large population, a lots of people have the potential talent. So, how about the Hong Kong actor’s future? China has fews performing arts colleges, their students are versatile. They do not mind to do the free performances, or even ask them to pay more as they will. The new generation want to win in this competition, we must know what is our value.
