Natalie Tong had many sad scenes in "A Fistful of Stances." Her acting received good response and she said happily: "When I'm out on the streets, many people called me 'Ah Aun' (her name in the series). I usually play sassy girls, didn't know viewers like tragic characters as well. It gave me a new direction in acting." Officially stepped in the showbiz in 2000 with "Youth@Y2k," this year it's her 10th year working on-screen. She said: "From being a model in the beginning to now filming dramas, it's quite a big change. Every step to where I'm now is memorable. I got to know many things and many new friends." She tried hosting and acting, now mainly acting, she's satisfied with her current stage: "I'm quite satisfied with my career, been in the showbiz for 10 years, I'm still spirited even today!"
Natalie has a youth appearance and it's okay to say she's in her early 20s, but in fact she's reaching a new age era [Natalie is 29 this year], however she isn't afraid: "Age is just a number, it's more important to keep your mood and emotions youthful. I think girls are better with an older age, they know how to understand and take care of others, that's attractive!" Although she filmed many TV series, but her romance rumors are more concerned by others, and that kind of frustrated her: "When you have rumors, they won't look at your work, of course won't be happy! But can't do a thing, I can only keep my private life in low-profile, won't announce anything when I start to date again." It's rumored earlier that she's going out with Wong Ka Lok, she laughed and said :"No need to ask, of course it's fake!" Currently single, she said at this stage she only wants to date with work: "Now I gained more opposite sex friends, but I'm concentrating in work, can't see who's around me. (Anyone pursuing you?) I would say no, want to take a break. Too many rumors in the past, don't come again!"
Although she decided not to announce her relationship in the future, but she said she would announce her marriage, and didn't rule out lightning marriage: "If I'm at the stage of marriage, then I would announce it. I'm the type of person who do things based on emotions, I would do things if I want to, maybe even lightning marriage!" Her relationship with Amigo Chui became past tense, asked is she willing to develop another relationship with a showbiz star, she expressed: "Actually it's hard to avoid, if you like someone, then you are. Most importantly, he has to be patient and maturer than I'm, can take care of me."
"AFOS" costar Kevin Cheng expressed: "Natalie has a big improvement in acting this year. Her character in 'AFOS' suits her, she did a good job. (Look upon her?) Of course I hope she will win 'Most Improved Female Artiste,' it's an encouragement to win an award."
Good friend Angela Tong said: "Natalie is well-behaved and very hardworking. Either I'm working with her or watching her perform, I feel she improved a lot. She's true to you in private life, her personality is like a little girl!"
