During the recent Golden Rooster Award ceremony, the sight of Nicholas Tse Ting-fung (謝霆鋒) and Guan Xiaotong (关晓彤) seated together brought back a lot of fond memories.
In case you didn’t know, the 41-year-old actor and 24-year-old actress previously starred together in the 2005 film, “The Promise”, when she was only 8 years old. It’s heartwarming to know that even 16 years later, the duo have kept in touch with one another.
During the event, Nicholas wore a tuxedo and a matching bow tie while Xiaotong opted for a sparkling sequin dress with a grey shawl to keep warm. The screenshot of the pair soon went viral online, with many commenting how they have aged like fine wine. While Nicholas looks like he’s barely aged, Xiaotong has grown into a stunning young woman and has been named as one of the “most beautiful young actresses” in showbiz.
Netizens also brought up an old photo of Nicholas dressed up as a girl when he was 10 years old. Clad in full make up and a tube top with a feather boa wrapped around his shoulders, many noted how he looked similar to Xiaotong when she was girl. “Good looks don’t lie. He’s grown up so handsomely, but this photo is proof that he would have been a real beauty if he was born a woman,” a commentator quipped.
The memorable reunion was short lived but fans are certainly hoping to see them together again in the near future. Perhaps a project together?
