No big deal, next time." Unfortunately IMPRISONED has become his final film.

Busy with IP MAN 3 in the Mainland, Patrick Tam Yiu Man with the film THE MERGER (NGOR MOON TING JIN BA!) won Best Actor in a New York film festival and Best Supporting Actor in a San Diego Independent Film Festival. Ah Tam said, "Winning two awards at once, I feel very honored to be able to receive recognition overseas!" Playing an autistic teacher Ah Tam had "teacher student romance" with Rachel Lam and Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi). However Ah Tam said that the entire film came from a dramatic angle and had no sexual content. "When I got the script I learned that I had to act autistic and a teacher, I felt a little odd. I even had to have a crush on a female student. I have never played this type of characters. I never expected to win awards with it. I really have to take the story creator Rachel Lam to dinner! I would get a luxury van for himself as an reward!"

courtesy of on.cc
Leo Ku Kui Kei in the film TWO THUMBS UP (CHUNG FUNG CHEH) played the only "real cop", but actually in the heart of director Lau Ho Leung, Gei Jai's show business experience was just right for the character design. He was his only choice. Director Lau said, "He was a television host for such a long time before, hiding the fact that he actually could sing. He was waiting for an opportunity to tell everyone that actually he sang very well. Such a focus on what was important and waiting for a minute to prove himself was the emotion that I wanted."

Actually this time Gei Jai did not have an easy time at all to play this cop role well, because Director Lau gave the entire character crazy challenges. The first was catching a thief on a bicycle. Gei Jai said, "I am the type that only rode bicycles in the country when I was little, but if you said that I had to chase a crook down I wasn't really up to par. For this character I trained with a coach and learned to ride a bicycle." Director Lau followed, "Actually this time in the film he had the most difficult stuff. I felt that I kept finding something to throw his way. I wanted him to curse, he also had to wipe out at ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Jordan Chan Siu Chun and Gordon Lam Ka Tung will be this year's Hong Kong Film award masters of ceremonies. Yesterday the trio attended the worship ceremony at the Cultural center. Attendees included the Hong Kong Film Award chair Gordon Chan Ka Seung. Everyone prayed for a smooth show. First time Hong Kong Film award hosts Chin Wa and Siu Chun even warned that they might cross some people and hoped the elders would not mind.

Siu Chun and Chin Wa would host for the first time, while Ka Tung would be on the job for his fourth year. Chin Wa earlier said that because she caught something from her son, her voice was still a little hoarse. She said that during rehearsal two days ago her voice was a disaster. She could not speak at all. Now she is already much better. She admitted that she has told the event, after having her baby she did not have much of a memory. She might be able to only remember 30% of the script, but the event said that Ka Tung would remember it. Siu Chun also said that earlier he thought about whether he should accept the mission because he was not a great talker and he was afraid that he would run out of gas. Reporters asked that Siu Chun stuttered when he spoke, was that the greatest pressure? He said, "I can have my own style!" Was he also afraid that the program would run over? He said, "Over or .....

The Heep Hong Society ambassador Nick Cheung Ka Fai yesterday appeared in his film MASTER FAT (TOR DEI KUI MOR YUN)'s costume and attended the Great Chefs of Hong Kong event. He picked up a child for photos, and the child gave him a peck on the cheek.

Ka Fai's film HELIOS (CHET DOH) was rejected from the Cross Harbor Tunnel billboards, but he was not worried that the box office would be affected. He even asked the authorities to ease the policy. He said, "Since I was little I have known that spot by the tunnel was for advertising, mostly film advertisement. Hong Kong viewers are very smart, they know that spot is used for promotion. So I hope the tunnel would be a little more lenient."
