Singapore actress Jeanette Aw and “Breakout” co-star Christopher Lee took home the award for Favourite On-screen Couple (Drama) at the Star Awards 2011 Show 1 on Sunday. Aw played Yang Nianqing, a mentally unstable woman who falls in love with Lee’s character Situ Dong Cheng, a disgraced lawyer in Mandarin drama “Breakout”, which had won awards for Best Director and Best Music and Sound Design earlier in the evening.
The couple beat out other popular couplings like Elvin Ng and Zhou Ying – also from “Breakout” – as well as Rui En and Chen Han Wei in “With You”. “Hopefully, we can work together again next time. Playing enemies is fine too,” said Lee with a laugh during an interview after the awards show, before praising Aw for being very professional throughout the show’s production process. For Lee, good things indeed came in pairs – the actor also took home the award for Favourite On-screen Partners (Variety) with television host Quan Yifeng for their work on the variety show “Life Transformers 2”.

“What can we say? We have chemistry!” said Quan and Lee of their win, both clad in bright red outfits, simultaneously. “I knew Quan since I entered showbiz and we feel like ‘brothers’. We have a lot of chemistry,” said Lee. “We both wore red today! I really didn’t know that he would be wearing red tonight until we met in the lift earlier!” said Quan excitedly.
