A Life of Hasty Curtain Call

"It's been more than 30 years, but when I talk about her, I still miss her, and I still have the impression of her crudity and smile in my mind. Perhaps it is because Ah Weng (as she was nicknamed by her circle and the press) died in mid-May 1985, so every year in May, people pay tribute to her in a different way. This year, there seems to be a particularly large number of people posting news or reports on YouTube about the death of Ah Weng, which has brought back memories of her.

The heroine of "The Legend of the Eagle", Wong Yung, was a popular actress in the television industry and became one of TVB's most sought-after actresses, but unfortunately, her bright career stopped forever when she died suddenly at home at the age of 26, which was classified as "suicide".

"Although there were already four major TVB actresses at that time: Wong Suk-yee, Liza Wang, Lee Sze-ki and Chiu Ah-chi, Ah Weng's acting skills were still young, but her naturalness and sweet appearance captured many TV viewers and her star was boundless. She would always respond to interviews and photo shoots in order of priority, no matter if it was a major newspaper or a small magazine, as long as it wasn't a yellow publication, and she fully understood the feelings of the press and media.

On the day of Ah Weng's funeral, someone criticised the press for treating her 'white event' as a 'red event'.

The rumours are true or false, but as OWEN lay in the ground, the dust has long since returned to the earth.

倉促謝幕的人生

「已經過去了30多年,說起她,仍是懷念,腦海裏仍有她一顰一笑的印象。」記者友人口中的她,是已逝世36年的電視女藝人翁美玲,可能是因為阿翁(圈中人和記者傳媒對她的暱稱)身故於1985年的5月中旬吧,所以每年的5月份都有人以不同的方式去悼念她,而今年似乎特別多,有人不斷在YouTube上載阿翁當年生前死後的種種消息或報道,勾起一眾娛樂記者的回憶。

《射鵰英雄傳》的女主角黃蓉,令阿翁在視圈爆紅,成為TVB力捧的花旦,可惜她的燦爛星途卻永遠停在她26歲的那一年,突然於家中暴斃,被定性為「自殺」,噩耗令不少喜愛阿翁的觀眾和粉絲「心碎」了,亦使人不禁扼腕惋惜、慨嘆︰紅顏薄命﹗

「那年代阿翁是很多人心中的『女神』,雖然當時TVB已有四大花旦︰黃淑儀、汪明荃、李司棋、趙雅芝坐鎮,阿翁的演技亦青澀,但勝在自然,樣貌甜美可人,俘虜了不少電視觀眾,可說是星途無可限量,熟悉阿翁為人的記者傳媒,最欣賞阿翁待人的一份『尊重』,就是不管邀約她做訪問和拍照的傳媒是大報章、小雜誌也好,只要不是黃色刊物,她都會按先後次序應邀,完全理解記者傳媒的感受,所以不論過了多少年,仍記着她的好。」

提到阿翁出殯的那一天,有人批評記者傳媒將人家的「白事」當「紅事」來做,記者友人咆哮地說︰「這人的說話絕對是中傷當時的記者,阿翁的離世,記者們的傷心程度不比任何人少,只因職責所在,我們的眼淚卻只能在眼眶裏打轉,或者淚在心中流呀﹗」

曾是阿翁男友的湯鎮業難免成「千夫所指」,種種傳聞孰真孰假,隨着阿翁長眠地下早已塵歸塵,土歸土了﹗記者友人只記得當時湯鎮業將頭髮剪下部分放進阿翁的靈柩內,以示「結髮之情」。
