Hong Kong broadcaster TVB is throwing a lifeline to airline staff whose livelihoods have been affected due to the pandemic by offering them a chance to be actors.

TVB recently held an audition, live streamed on YouTube on Dec 7, exclusively for those from the airline industry.

Four male and three female hopefuls duked it out in front of a panel of celebrity judges in the episode.

The prospective actors were grilled on their motivations to join the showbiz scene as well as their personal lives.

One contestant, in particular, pilot Keith drew audiences’ attention as he is rumoured to be romantically-linked to Miss Hong Kong 2015 winner Louisa Mak.
