After 20 Years, Mat Yeung is Finally Standing in the First Row

Mat Yeung TVB 51st Anniversary Light Switch Ceremony

Although TVB actor, Mat Yeung (楊明) is only 37 years old, he has been in TVB for 20 years.  He started at 17 and has been through a lot of struggles to finally get to stand in the first row at this year’s “TVB Anniversary Light Switch Ceremony.”  Mat Yeung started out playing small roles and even got in trouble with the law a few years back.  For some reason, someone high up in TVB likes him and decided to give him a second chance,  something they don’t do often.  Though it wasn’t easy, he had to start over from scratch again.

TVB held their annual lighting ceremony for their 51st anniversary today.  As per usual, the first line actors and actresses would be arranged to stand in the first line with the heavy hitters of TVB.  This year, there are quite a few newcomers in the first row, including Mat Yeung, who is the second male lead in TVB’s anniversary series, “Fist Fight” (兄弟).

Mat Yeung revealed, “This year I received a letter telling me to get my 20 year service gold medal.  The letter included a dinner invitation.  I’ve waited a long time for this medal.  I have to thank TVB these past few years for giving me opportunities.  I am very happy I can keep advancing.  I hope in the next 10 or 20 years, I can be even greater.  I think today was good encouragement.  I started from the bottom, graduated from the artist training class.  From being a prize presenter to standing all the way at the top to stepping down row by row, I can finally experience standing in the first row.  I hope next year I can be even closer and do the actual lighting ceremony.”

  1. He’s only standing in the first row bc most of the A-list actors and actresses left TVB lol look who’s standing in the second row…Eddie Kwan and Hugo Wong lol

      1. Lol but Eddie left TVB before so I think he isn’t considered “one of their own”.

        Mat is very lucky to be given a second chance so I hope he makes the most of it and not mess up again. Wasn’t he put in the freezer for assault or drug related issues?
