Malaysian-born actor Lawrence Wong (王冠逸) has won the Best Supporting Award at the 14th Chinese American TV Festival (中美电视节) in New York.
The “Story of Yanxi Palace” (延禧攻略) actor shared the news on his social media, captioning, “Look mum, I got an award again. I hope you could see this and be proud of me.”
This is Wong’s 2nd win as he previously took home Asia’s Most Promising Actor Award at the 2018 Asian-American Television and Film Festival Golden Oak Award （美国亚洲影视节金橡树奖）4 days ago, as reported by The Star.
During his 1st win, the 30-year-old shared on social media, “I was once so lost in my career, but now I’m Asia Most Promising Actor!”
He continued to share all of the people who helped contribute to his success including Qin Lan, Yu Zheng, and also his fans. “I want to thank my fans for the never ending and never dying love and support for me. I love you guys too!”
