    Definitely Wayne Lai for me. His acting is a lot better than a lot of leading actors right now. I wish he could get a leading role. Even second lead would suffice.

    Sunny Chan, he gets a lot of crappy parts now. He played almost every kind of role in the 90s and now he's stuck in the corny family comedies.

    Talking

    Actors:
    Basically all of the ones you guys had listed. Sunny Chan just went downhill

    Actresses:

    Tavia Yeung
    Sharon Chan
    Leila Tong
    Joyce Tang
    Mimi Lo
    Fiona Leung (the first or second runner-up in 96, 97, 98 ??? along with Myolie Wu )
    Nancy Wu

    I can't think of anymore, I have to see the series to remember

    i think she's got some natural ability ... well if you compare her first series with fala chan, charmaine, myolie, bernice .. i think selina did much better.

    o - i wanted to add to the list ...

    natural acting ability lol

    she is a one dimensional actress that can maybe only pull off one of those kind sweet goodie food shoe girls, and she would still do bad in them

    not sure which is fala's good series, but i assume its heart of greed? i think she did well in there.

    charmaine's first series was that detective file 4 w/ sunny right? i thought she did decent, she was the lead in there too.

    i really hate myolie and im not sure which is her 1st series either, so i wont comment.

    bernice's first real series (she was in the sitcom virtue of harmony) was survivor law and i thought she gave me a deep impression there.

    and selina's first series is herbalist affairs right? where she played her same old sweet little girl role. she can pull it off, but her facial expression just did not match her words and feelings imo

    btw i agree w/ ur 2nd list too rene yau is actually rain lau right?

    ps: these are all my opinions and im kinda bias too

    yeah - it's rain lau if it's that short girl that can act but not very pretty. lol.

    i think i like selena li b/c of miss hk then ..

    fala chan, yeah, she's good but i don't like her flirtatious attitude, guess that influenced me a bit.

    myolie - hate her? omg - i love her. haha.

    well, in terms of first series performance .. here's my ranking.
    1. linda chung - virtues of harmony
    2. selina li - lao po da ren (jessica hsuan and sunny chan)
    3. (blank - fill in later)

    male
    1. raymond lam - mei wei qing yuan
    2. ron ng (man, wasn't truimp in the sky his first real role ... he did well there but went downhill)
    3. (blank - fill in later)

    nonono u prob like her b/c u like her acting but i just dont like her b/c of what i see in her acting dont let me influence u

    i think the first series i saw raymond was eternal hapiness and i loved that series and thought ray did a good job too, but hes starting to go downhill for me right now

    One of fala's first performance? hm....heart of greed was bad. Her character was one dimensional and so is her acting! It was her first appearance in Forensic heroes that got me thinking hm...this girl has some acting skills as a first-timer. But I thought she doesn't have potential that I initially thought she has(or perhaps I misjudge her) after watching heart of greed, The Steps.

    oh no no no no no...Charmaine was horrible...no, wait......DREADFUL in Dectective files4!

    Underrated actors
    wayne lai
    evergreen mak
    derek kwok
    selena li
    nancy wu
    Cheung Chi Kwong
    Mimi Lo
    Ah Wei, he plays many supporting roles, from Greed of men to recent roles in Taichi as a evil policeman
    Power chan

    I thought Charmaine first series was Flying Fox ? Or maybe that was the first time I ever see her, man, she was awful in there, from looks to acting.

    Definitely Power Chan and Evergreen Mak.

    At least Wayne has tons of people who appreciate his skills- BUT sadly few of them are from TVB

    And Tavia, her acting surpasses most of the current leading ladies, though she still have leading roles, I feel that TVB is still not promoting her enough. Those roles given to her were not major or good enough.

    Tavia acting is good, but she lacked something* on-screen. Yet can't put my finger on why I'm having this* feeling...
