Strike for Excellence   Samantha Ko

堅持不懈  高海寧

The audiences just look at the appearance of the actress, but they mostly ignore their inner beauty and the effort they paid for their career.  Samantha Ko Hoi Ning is one of the most hardworking actress in Hong Kong. With her experience nearly 10 years, she becomes a passionated and meticulous actress. Let us read more about her now.

 

Talking about Samantha, we immediately think of her slim body shape. How to keep up her beautiful slender figure would be our first question, “Besides doing exercises, pressure from work would make me slim automatically. I worked in Malaysia for movie filming last 2 weeks, I lost 7 pounds without doing any proper exercises and also without any diet plan. I have a really high expectation on myself. I wish I can do better and better as some awards were received and more job opportunities appear in these days.” She gave us an impression of making herself to do better and better as her career goal.

In this interview, her every action told us she requires herself to try her very best all the time. She discussed the details of her photos with the photographer. She even helped us to check the video camera was running or not during the interview with politeness. These all shows that her focus on excellence, “There are many misunderstanding from the public. They treat me as a sexy figure with unhealthy private life. There were a lot of false articles from the media too. I did really care about these false articles in the past and cried a lot as result. I bore tones of pressure all by myself. Reviewing my nearly 10 years career, actually everything happened is worth. For every sad things happened, I had one more lesson learnt from it. Now, I only need to have beloved family and friends who would trust me without any doubt. Any negative comment is not important anymore.” Samantha only focus on her career at this moment. She enjoys every performance. And the most important thing is to make her family and herself to be happy all the time. And this is her only goal now. 

 

Alcoholic drinks may be her own way to relief her negative feeling. When we asked her which cocktail she would like to taste, she said, “I watched a movie about a bartender. He could mix a cocktail that made the drinker remember the old days and finally cried out from sorrow. How amazing the power of cocktail is! In contrast with making people sad, I wish somebody can create a cocktail that makes me happy and thinks of any happy memory. Also, I also would like to have a cocktail that can make me sleep very well - when you under pressure, you cannot sleep well and the brain won’t shut down. The sleeping quality is of course very bad. Therefore, I love to have ‘sleep-promoting’ cocktail in this case.”

 

She did not drink any wine and spirits before. However, she found that having some wine with friends would make her really enjoy the moment they had and relax her tension from jobs. Starting from last 3 years, she drinks wine in dinner, “Wine is a must for me in dinner with friends now. That makes me relax and can adapt the environment more easily.” On the other hand, Samantha learns the knowledge of wine from Mr. So Man Fung, as he will have “red wine gathering” every Sunday, “Mr. So welcomes all the guests to enjoy his red wine collection in his home. He teaches us how to taste the red wine. I found that there is a lot of information required to be studied for red wine.”

Although Samantha likes red wine most, still she has some requirements for other kinds of alcoholic drinks, “If possible, I like the alcoholic drinks with the scent of orange, chamomile or grapefruit flavour. I do not like drinks that are too sweet. Alcoholic drinks with a bit sourness and a little bit sweetness would be perfect for me.”

Busy as Samantha, after the interview, she is required to prepare for the next trip to Malaysia to finish movie. Of course, she remember our first anniversary, “Happy Birthday, Malt & Spirits!” Her sweet voice makes all the people melt.

太多的觀眾只在乎藝人外表,但卻忽略他們所附出的努力。高海寧,一位令男士心動、令女士羨慕的藝人,多年來在工作上經過的一點一滴,使她成為一位注意細節、一絲不苟的演員。藉此機會,讓我們深入了解高海寧的演藝世界。

大家想起高海寧,第一時間留意的,就是如何保持完美體態:「除了做運動之外,其實工作的壓力就能使身體自自然然的瘦下去。好像這兩星期在馬來西亞拍電影,沒有運動、沒有刻意節食,卻瘦了七磅!我對自己的要求很高,近年事業上得到些獎項,工作機會也愈來愈多,因而希望自己做得更加好。」「要求自己做得更好」,整個訪問中,這點予人最深刻的印象。

 

其實拍攝訪問期間,從高海寧一舉一動中,就能看出她是個很高要求的藝人,相片拍出效果她會給予意見,就連錄影時有否開機,也會有禮貌的提點工作人員,這可見她的專注:「外界誤認為我是一個私生活不檢的性感女星,還有那些無中生有的負面報導,這一切都令我很介意。我清楚自己的為人,跟我共事過的朋友也知道我是個腳踏實地的演員,因此對於那些胡鬧報導,我很不忿,經常為此躲起來哭,壓力也就這樣的默默承受。快十年了,回頭看去,發覺所有事情也是值得的:因為每經歷一次挫折,就有多一次的成長。現在我只需要愛我的人依然義無反顧的相信我就足夠,不再在意別人目光。」高海寧已看透一切,最重要是享受每次演出機會,令自己及家人都開心,就於願足矣。

 

酒可以說是她排解情緒的方法,打趣的問她會調一杯怎麼樣的雞尾酒時,她回答:「以前看過一齣電影,戲中 Bartender 懂得調製一杯雞尾酒,可以令人回想從前一件最不愉快事情,最後更哭出來了 — 我不禁在想:雞尾酒的效果真是這麼神奇嗎?所以我希望有人教我調製一杯雞尾酒,可以令人想起所有開心愉快的事情,以及另一杯可以令人安睡的雞尾酒:因為有壓力時,就算睡了,腦袋卻依然不停運作,睡得不安穩,因此就想要一杯擁有『安眠』作用的雞尾酒。」

 

三年前的她是滴酒不沾的,但後來發現與朋友把酒言歡是一件樂事,更可放鬆精神,就開始多喝酒了:「與朋友外出吃飯,也會叫一杯酒,自己就更輕鬆融入飯局的氣氛之中。」儘管如此,高海寧對喝酒這方面還是有學習精神的,因為她身邊有蘇文峰師傅,也是她的紅酒啟蒙老師:「每逢星期日,蘇師傅都會在家中開紅酒,歡迎大家參加,所以總是一大班同學在喝紅酒。蘇師傅就值此機會教授紅酒知識,我就發現紅酒原來還真是大有學問的。」

雖然高海寧最喜歡喝的還是紅酒,但是她對其他酒類,還是有一定的要求:「如果有得選擇的話,我喜歡香橙、甘菊、西柚之類的酒品。因為我不太喜歡味道太甜的飲品,帶點酸度、甜度較低的酒品是我的心頭好!」

高海寧工作繁忙,訪問結束後,還要準備再到馬來西亞完成電影《福2代》拍攝工作,行程非常緊密。可是,她也不忘對雜誌一周年作出最衷心的祝福:「祝《Malt & Spirits》一周年生日快樂!」由她口中說出這句話,的確十分甜呢…
