Earlier this week, Chapman To raised a heated topic on Facebook. He said that the was watching TVB, and looking at a girl (Sisley Choi), he truly felt she was quite pretty. In fact, she really looks like someone he admires a lot, and finally, he remembered that the person is Kimura Takuya! Chapman put the two's photos side by side, and garnered a lot of attention. Someone commented: "I didn't see it before you said it, but now I really feel like they look so alike!" Some also joked that the two were long-lost siblings. The domino effect caused a lot of discussion to arise, and many people felt that Sisley looks very similar to many people; most people agreed that she looks like Yundi Li the most. Matthew Ko, Auston Lam, Astrid Chan and even Zhang Yu were suggested as Sisley's lookalikes.

Two years later, Flor Chan is finally filming another drama. This time, she will be playing an all-round secretary in TVB's new drama, "Good Morning Boss", which revolves around survival in the office. She will play a married couple with Ben Wong. She said: "I have known Ben for many years, but this is the first time we are collaborating. In the drama, he falls love at first sight with me, but afterwards our marriage takes a turn, and I even catch him cheating in bed." 

Flora revealed that this is the last drama she has before her contract with TVB ends. She has just recently finished her Masters in English at HKU, and is planning to apply to continue her studies for a PHD. She said: "I never said I would retire from this history, but will juggle things for a long period of time. Before, my daughter was still young and I wanted to spend more time with her. (Will you have another child?) I haven't thought about it yet. I am very satisfied with this daughter. She is very talented at drawing, and good at school. Having a child isn't something you can simply get just by saying it. I will think about it again later on, although I know I can't think too long." Flora expressed that the drama will start filming soon. Luckily her daughter is very understanding, and she is already very happy that she is filming in Hong Kong, so she doesn't need to be apart from her daughter for too long. Asked if she will renew her contract with TVB? She replied: "I will think about it later on, decide after filming is done."

Lily Ho, Ali Lee, Tony Hung, etc. attended the costume fitting for TVB's new drama "Good Morning Boss" yesterday. The actors' images for the drama were exposed. Lily Ho completely transformed into an ugly girl; when she walked in front of the reporters, no one could tell who she was, until the company arranged for her photos to be taken, did everyone realize that she was Lily Ho. 

For this "ugly" look, other than changing her hairstyle, her skin also became darker, her eyelids became heavier and thicker and even wore a customized false teeth retainer to create a heavy overbite.With the fake teeth stuck out, crooked and yellow; no wonder no one could recognize her! 

When Lily was introducing herself, her teeth accidentally hit the microphone, causing everyone to laugh. She said: "When I was just walking around just now, no one could recognize me. I think it proves the look is very successful. This time, I will be playing a regular girl from Cheung Chau. Although her look is very plain, but she has a very kind heart. In the end, she is able to find a Him Law-like looking good husband." She expressed that she doesn't mind playing an ugly character. In the past, she's always appeared looking beautiful, so this time she hopes it can give people something fresh. 

Can't speak clearly

Lily expressed that the "ugly" make-up doesn't take too long, but the most painful is the retainer. She said: "The false teeth are customized, but I still haven't gotten used to it yet, so my pronunciation is very unclear. Having darker skin has an ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

After Leung Chai Yan missed the first press conference and has not confirmed her participation, director Lau Chun Fai held another press conference to blast her. The film's indefinite delay only brought a pile of gossip. Yesterday lead actor Li Yat Long reportedly needed to resign from the film due to scheduling problem. Li Yat Long's manager Kitty said, "He has resigned because of scheduling conflict. Li Yat Long has other jobs later on. (Are you worried about having to compensation?) Probably not, it has been resolved. Because earlier we made room in the schedule for the production for the film company."

Would they regret not having the chance to work with Leung Chai Yan? She said, "When we signed the contract we didn't know we would work with her. It was a surprise, so we didn't feel like we lost anything." Li Yat Long missed out of his first lead role after 20 years in the business, would he feel that he was unlucky? She said, "We wouldn't think like that. He still has development opportunities in the business." Actually Li Yat Long after returning to Hong Kong became a hot property in the industry. After his April concert he will work on a television series.

Director Lau Chun Fai said that he has not received the news of Li Yat Long's ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Artist Elaine Ng Yi Lei was arrested on suspicions of child abuse and drug possession. She has posted bail and is awaiting investigation. Ng Yi Lei's 15 year old daughter "Little Dragon Girl" Ng Cheuk Lam told her school that her mother hit her stomach (later changed her claim to shoulder). The school decided to contact the police for the safety of Cheuk Lam. Cheuk Lam was sent to the hospital for examination and had no wound on the surface. During the investigation at Ng's Tai Po home, the police found a trace amount of possible drugs that has already been sent for further testing. Suspected of child abuse and drug possession, Ng Yi Lei was arrested and has posted HK$ 2,000 in bail. In mid May she will need to report to the police again. For her safety, Cheuk Lam reportedly has already been hospitalized for observation.

Ng Yi Lei yesterday continued to work on the Cable television program PET ER. Ng Yi Lei was unaffected in the morning and behaved normally. The production was completed smoothly, but in the afternoon she was absent in the last minute and cable host Lee Yun Ting covered for her.

The Hong Kong Society of Cinematographers two nights ago held its annual banquet in Kowloon Bay and presented the most charming actor and actress awards, which went to Gordon Lam Ka Tung and Josie Ho Chiu Yi. Ng Kai Ming received the annual "Most Outstanding Cinematography Award".

Lam Ka Tung joked about winning the most charming actor award, "Maybe it's because I am 'tough'! Or maybe they feel that I contributed on and off screen. When this energy affects everyone, it is the most charming. (It isn't based on looks?) Definitely not, I wouldn't be my turn ever. I know myself well."

After GALLANTS (DA LUI TOI), Ka Tung has always worked with new comers. This year he was happy to see many small to medium sized film productions that also worked with new comers. Later he will make two films, one of which will b a comedy about Portland Street. Will it talk about sex? He said, "I wouldn't avoid it, it is a tinted love story but it definitely won't be category III." He even hoped that Ivana Wong Yuen Chi will be its lead actress, but he would not require nudity from her with the film's romantic elements. Did he pick her as a Hong Kong Film Award favorite? he said that she had a great chance to win Best New Performer because she had three nominations. For Best Supporting Actress she had competition so he would not dare to discuss it. Director Andrew Lau Wai Keung since 2000 has worked with ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
