Louie Castro 賈思樂



賈思樂,一位來自澳門的土生葡人,於1974年當地的粵華中學畢業後,離澳往港開展他人生旅程中的新一頁。

在港初期,他曾參加當時TVB為發掘新一代歌星而製作的『聲寶之夜』節目歌唱比賽,憑一曲Cliff Richard原唱的Congratulations晋身決賽階段,惜最後未能獲得前三名的位置。

1976年,他獲當年任TVB節目編導及同樣來自澳門同校的學長甘國亮所賞識,加入TVB成為合約藝員,並在甘國亮編導的『少年十五二十時』劇集中担男主角,初試蹄聲。而該劇的其他演員,記憶中有殷巧兒、杜琪峰、林奕華、吳孟達、吳浣儀、余安安、何貴林、李志中、羅志強、苗嘉麗、梁碧玲等,還有兩位可愛的童星鄭大衛及鄭麗麗。同年五月,TVB推出了一系列由他與森森、斑斑姊妹及李振輝(Robert Lee)合作演出的『四樂士特輯』歌唱節目,大大提高了他的知名度,亦憑此獲EMI簽約成為旗下歌星,於該年下旬至1979年間灌錄了合共四張個人歐西歌曲LP,其中一張是與May Cheng鄭寶雯合錄。

除了在歌視圈的發展外,賈思樂在1977至1979年間,也曾往台灣拍了三部由當年著名導演丁善璽執導的電影《永恆的愛》、《小小世界妙妙妙》及《我愛芳鄰》,全都是與恬妞分任男女主角。1985年,在港拍了他至今唯一當男主角的港產片《摸錯骨》,女主角是當年的名模古嘉露,但該片的票房成績其差。

可能是基於體型所限,賈思樂始終在娛樂圈中未能有所大突破。大部份的本地觀眾對他的印象,只流於八十年代他在TVB『歡樂今宵』節目中的趣劇﹝蝦仔爹哋﹞,扮演着「蝦仔」這角色。但他温純的個人性格, 卻為他在圈內廣結不少善緣。不論是已息影的或是現時還在演出的藝員,如露雲娜、狄寶娜摩亞、陳玉蓮、余綺霞(已故)、鄭裕玲、甘國亮、林奕華、羅慧娟、廖安麗等,皆是他多年的知己好友。至於近年他的個人狀況,筆者除了知道他在2000年代初期在新城電台任DJ及灌錄了一張個人中文歌曲CD外,其他的已不大清楚了。

請問你:Louie做DJ期間, 曾把一首泰文歌混入英文獨白後播出, 那首歌是甚麼名字? 你有那special version 嗎? 很好聽的.

I remember watching the movie "永恆的愛". There was a song sang by Louie. I can't remember the name or even the melody. Only remember the lyric has something to do with "mama". Anyone knows?? Thanks!
