Although Sheren Tang excels in having a great career, but that does not apply to her love life. The tough "Gau Goo Leung" yells at bad men often on TV, but in real life, she is just like any other women; she just wants to be loved.
"Wining this award twice in the row, not filming any new series yet, next year's TV Queen shouldn't be me! I know Charmaine Sheh are filming some good projects. I think she's going to win it next year! In my opinion, she's a very hardworking actress. She's good at memorizing scripts, this is a rare skill. Filming 'Can't Buy Me Love' isn't easy. It's even harder to be happy, mad, and sad all at once in a comedy, Charmaine's good!"
When veteran actor Dik Lung forgets to present the "Best Actress" award to her at this year's TVB Anniversary Awards , Sheren says gently: "You haven't give the award to me!". This is the real Sheren, not the tough women you often see her playing in TV dramas. When it comes to love, the two-time TV Queen winner is not as strong as we thought she is. After studying the Enneagram of Personality for many years, Sheren knows she has a different personality than her role in "No Regrets": "Gau Goo Leung is the nine*. She controls everything and she is tough. But Sheren Tang is an aligator on the outside but not inside. She just wants to be loved. She wants her man to be responsible and decide everything for her. But in this Asian society, it's hard for her to find her Mr. Right. She is a four!"
Unfortunately, Sheren always meets the wrong person at a wrong time. The point is, the person who is wrong is actually herself: "Never met the right one, never! I'm wrong with the definition of love. But I never regret. Fortunately I encounter the decision of getting married only once, and I chose not to marry. I know we would definitely get a divorce. I only need the feeling of worrying and missing you in the past. Once I don't have this feeling anymore, I would leave immediately. I don't know how to be inclusive, this is even worst! Now my views on love is back to normal. Love is a lasting gift. Hope it's not too late for Sheren Tang to know this!" What if she is late? There are 7 million people in Hong Kong and there are many men who like to pretend they are tough ones. None received trust from Sheren; none can make her feel safe.
Sheren says: "In Hong Kong, many men would say they love you, can take care of you, and they tell you you don't need to work. In fact, they never know what do women want. When they're dating me, once they're being followed by papparazi, they will leave me, and don't know how to understand my occupation. I got to know a Jewish man 10 years ago and we dated for a while. He didn't have a big reaction when he knows I'm an actress, but instead brought me to pedestrian streets to shop and let me know how to enjoy life. Too bad we didn't stay together because of our religion, but I will remember this forever."
Willing to be loved but has an independent personality, Sheren is someone with double personalities and that troubles her in making decisions at work. Everyone knows TVB wants to sign her as one of its "biological children," but it is not an easy task: "Miss Lok [Virginia Lok] knows I have a good relationship with Helen [her current manager] and there is no reason to break it. So it [signing long term contract] never happened. But TVB raised me, I think it will give me freedom, like Charmaine, she won't do everything."
As for exchanging awards with contracts, Sheren laughs and says: "I actually think winning this award again will make me be responsible for more matters. There's no free lunch. I was a pearl left in the depths of the sea [talent left unrecognized] once, I played supporting roles once. Having an achievement like now, besides thanking God, also must cherish!"
True, there are many "unrecognized pearls" being rediscovered and Sheren predicts Power Chan is the next Evergreen Mak; he should earn a bigger applause from the audience. Besides wishing to be loved, Sheren also likes to appreciate and share the love.
