Png simply could not stop smiling and happily took the time to pose for photos with all his fans at the post-show party.
“This is the sweetest thing ever!
“Everything pretty much aligned. The role was good, the characterisation was wonderful, they chose me … I dare say I was probably the best actor for the role,” gushed Png after his win.
“It’s so surreal! I’ve been waiting too darn long for this award! I only wish I did a better thank you speech!” added Png with a chuckle.
“I didn’t get a chance to really thank the people I wanted to. Maybe I need to win another time! So let’s see next year!”
Although it took him many years of hard work before he won Best Supporting Actor, Png believes that it had been “necessary” for him to wait all these years, as is was the experiences he had during that time which contributed to his success today.
Png said he plans to celebrate his win with his wife, Andrea DeCruz, when she returns from her trip to Hong Kong to celebrate her mother’s birthday.
