I had to be very concentrated as I acted out this role. The director also did not want to affect the actors' mindset, so he depended on the photographer to capture the most natural moments. We did not specifically take photos for a poster, but on the contrary, the result has even more of a movie feeling and matches the mood of the film even more. I did not specifically pose for the photos, but the beauty is even more natural."    In the scene, Charlene's character attempts to kill herself, so she immerses herself in a pool of her own blood.

According to On CC News, speaking to the media at a jewellery event on 11 December, the "Brother's Keeper" actress said that she is already in a relationship for the last two months with a man who is also a screenwriter and a filmmaker.

 

Ankie said that she and her boyfriend, a European who is currently residing in Los Angeles, have known each other for six years before they decided to start dating.

 

When asked if she decided to date someone outside the Hong Kong entertainment industry as it would be less stressful, Ankie replied, "It depends. There is also another kind of stress when dating someone outside the circle. For example, sometimes they don't understand our work."

 

In related news, Ankie has recently finished filming a movie in Los Angeles and Germany, and has also signed with a German management company.

He said that Kwan Yu attracted him, as after work he still missed her. He hoped to be able to play her boyfriend next time and not her little gigolo. Was he afraid that his wife would be jealous? Choi Hong Yik joked that Peter Chan Ho Sun should be the one who was afraid because Kwan Yu was truly too attractive. He hoped that he would not mind him saying so. He also pointed out that on the first day of work they already had a lot of fun. Would he need to show off his body in the film? He said, "I don't know, but I am already in training."

Chapman To Man Chak invested in a film production company in Malaysia. Earlier he announced the the horror comedy THE HAUNTED COP SHOP (MAN GWAI CHAI GUOON) and even boldly said that his first film investment will definitely star him, because he was a representative figure in comedy. At the same time, he and Anthony Wong Chau Sun will work together on another "prison" ghost film. He will only produce and Wong Chau Sun will star. He said that if they will both star, salaries will be too much.

Ah Jat did not found out about "Malaysian son in law" Andy Lau Tak Wa's film production company there until the Malaysian media told him. He said that he did not know it was his turf, but his company was so small that he did not dare to suggest collaboration with Wa Jai. When asked about the "boycott", Ah Jat said, "Speaking of boycott, I have the most experience. Actually I also hope to have other news of my own, like disorderly behavior, wife beating or other rumors. In th end I had none. Actually this news has been talked about from the beginning to the end of the year. I kept responding (yawn), it truly is very dull."

The film poster yesterday was also unveiled. Ah Sa was soaking in a sea of blood, which was rather mysterious. The photo was shot on the set. Because in the story Ah Sa attempted suicide, she was in her own blood. During the shoot director Yau Lai To already felt that the scene was full of beauty and took a few photos. He never imagined that later they could be used for the poster.

Ah Sa said that she was in the tub for almost two hours that day, all of her skin was soften. She said that this time was already her bath limit for the entire year, which she spent all on one day. Before that day she was almost topless, during the shoot the set was cleared for her convenience. She was very pleased with the photo and thought it was worth all the trouble.

Song Hye-Kyo said that she benefited a lot from working with Director Woo and thanked co-star Huang Xiaoming for taking care of her.

This was Director Woo's first time directing a romance. During the shoot he tripped on a cable and was hospitalized, but actually the actors had it worse than he did because in part II the sinking scene had to be shot in a big pool. This film was divided into two parts, its production cost passed 300 million yuan RMB. Luckily many actors only took half their rate so it was not as severe as RED CLIFF (CHET BIK). Hitomi Kuroki did not take a salary at all and guest starred. He said, "Many actors only took the salary for one film, but because the shoot took a year they turned down other jobs. I am very appreciative."
