New director James Hung Ching Ling asked new actors Alex Lam Tak Shun and Evelyn Choi Wing Yan to play a couple in their new film THE SEVENTH LIE (DAI CHUT FONG YIN). Alex did his homework for the performance. "My character has super power, so I studied some foreign series for the role. I was the happiest that James let me keep my facial hair for the performance, because I feel it is an ability. I even trimmed it for work, but Evelyn complained that it hurt a lot!"

Evelyn laughed and explained, "I haven't kissed any guy with facial hair, it was very awkward! (Even more awkward than running on the Causeway Bay streets in a bridal look?) Although it was a run in the busy city streets, the pedestrians coordinated. However if my feet wouldn't be seen, I could actually wear sneakers in place of heels. The director really liked to shoot the entire body, and said every time was the last. After the shoot my feet really hurt!" James said that he loved to prank them, before the shoot he even asked them to rehearse.

Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) remains in detention for drugs. His father Jackie Chan yesterday attended the film SKIPTRACE's Beijing press conference with Fan Bing Bing and naturally became the media target. He admitted that he did not know much about Cho Ming's current condition. As he stated earlier, now he is focusing on work and has not been affected.

Jackie Chan said, "I know as much about him as everyone else. I ask the media to please not to report anything without proof, like I knelt at (Charles) Heung Wa Kung. Please also do not hurt Siu Fong Ji's Mama (Joan Lin) and publish some untrue reports. If necessary I will give a clear explanation to everyone." Jackie Chan admitted that he was not a suitable father before, from now on he had to be one. At the press conference, Fan Bingbing appeared with an alpaca and shared a lot of her experience. Bingbing said that currently she was studying English. She was confident about her level now.

 Charmaine Sheh has laughed off rumours of reconciliation with ex-boyfriend Kevin Cheng, saying that it was just a misunderstanding, according to Oriental Daily News.


Previously, rumours of their reconciliation sparked when both stars were spotted going into the same hot pot restaurant where Raymond Cho's 50th birthday celebration was held.


However, Charmaine, who attended the "Line Walker" celebratory dinner recently, stated that it was just a misconstruction stemmed from coincidence.


"I know there was a party for Raymond, but I was there for another party. The two events were held in different rooms," said Charmaine.


Asked if she had spoken to Kevin during the event, Charmaine nodded, though added, "It was just hot pot. The atmosphere was lively. I was a bit drunk that night, and I don't remember much."


In regards to whether there is a possibility of reconciliation, the actress said that she is waiting for her own love and will leave it up to fate.

 TVB actress Selena Li has recently dismissed rumours saying that her new wealthy boyfriend has something to do with her recent move to a new home.


According to HK Headlines, previously it was reported that Selena has moved to a larger home in Tai Hang since dating businessman Christopher Poon, who himself allegedly lives in the prestigious Central's Mid-Levels.


However, the 33-year-old stated that while she did move to a new residence, it has nothing to do with her boyfriend, and it is not even as luxurious as it was reported.


She said, "It was not a larger home, but a smaller one. I have to save money to help out with my sister's tuition."


"My boyfriend and I have separate finances, and he's not as wealthy as the tabloid made him to be," she added.

 Sisley Choi, who has been romantically rumoured with various male stars from Fred Cheng, Him Law, to Alan Wan, recently dismissed another rumour that has linked her to "Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles" actor, Adrian Chau.

Appearing at the TVB Lighting Ceremony on 20 October, Sisley confessed to being disgusted with the latest reports.


"There is no such thing. It never happened," she said.


Regarding the rumours of her acting chummy with the actor and feeding him dessert, Sisley stated that she likes to make gestures with her hands while talking, and was just unfortunately photographed at the wrong angle by the paparazzi.


Asked if the romance rumours have affected their friendship, Sisley denied it, and added, "The viewers might believe in the rumours, but what can we do about it? I will just treat it as publicity."

 TVB Chairman Norman Leung stated that the station will not be making any changes to their annual event to compete with Ricky Wong's company, despite rumours saying that the latter will be launching its new online platform this coming 19 November.


As reported on HK Headlines, Leung, who attended the lighting ceremony on 20 October to signify the commencement of TVB's 47th anniversary celebration, stressed that TVB will neither attempt to rival HKTV, even though the latter is launching its platform on the same date with the TVB Anniversary day, nor will he criticise its CEO for trying to compete with TVB.


"I don't think we will try to compete with them. The company has been on air for 47 years, and if Ricky Wong wants to launch his service on the same day, he has the right to do so," said Leung.


He also emphasised the fact that HKTV is not a rival broadcasting station, adding, "It's not a TV business, but an online business."

Artists Wong Yau Nam, Anthony Wong Chau Sun and Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin starred in the new film GANGSTER PAY DAY (DAI CHA FAN). In the film Wong Yau Nam got between his god brother Wong Chau Sun and Choi Cheuk Yin. Because he was loyal he kept Choi Cheuk Yin at bay. Yau Nam said that in real life if he ran into someone he liked, he would not back off and would take the initiative instead. "The love with Choi Cheuk Yin in the film was more ambiguous. It can't be played too directly. So my performance had to be more reserved and just right. It certainly had its difficulties."

As for working with Best Actor Wong Chau Sun again, he said that this time he finally had scenes with him. "Off camera I even very daringly asked him for his number, thinking that I would ask him about film. At first I was a little scared that he would turn me down, I didn't expect him to give it to me. However he played mean and asked me, 'What are you going to do with it?'"
