The 68 year old veteran actor Shum Wai excelled in playing villain roles. With the film LONG ARM OF THE LAW (SAN GONG KEI BING) he won the Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actor. Yesterday Shum Wai was rumored to be critically ill at a Beijing hospital from pneumonia and respiratory system failure, which led to organ capability damage. He was once in a coma and in the intensive care unit. His friend revealed to the media that a friend covered Shum Wai's hospital cost but still needed HK$ 60,000 for surgery. The friend said that Shum Wai's daughter came to visit but she too was not in good financial condition. She was unable to pay the amount and hoped to find friends to help. The Performing Artist Guild's secretary general Candy Yu On On said that if Shum Wai's family and friends have any need, the Guild certainly would help.

Linah Matsuoka starred in the film DECEPTION OF THE NOVELIST (JOK GA DIK FONG YIN: BUK JUNG YAU JUI)'s official trailer and poster have been released. She could not be hotter in only a lingerie and feather angel look. As the writer Justin Cheung Kin Sing looked like a happy warm man with wife and daughter, but hooked up with the passionate beauty tenant Matsuoka. They were caught cheating at home and she even extorted HK$ 10 million from him.

Speaking of the intimate scene with Matsuoka, Cheung Kin Sing said, "This is a suspect thriller, who is the killer is the real focus. I have made several category III films since I started, the most extreme was DUE WEST: OUR SEX JOURNEY (YUT LO HEUNG SAI). They aren't about how enjoyable they really are, but whether the audience are comfortable with them. Actually shooting them were rather tough, they required camera displacement and rehearsal, and keeping bad takes to a minimum."

Ben Yuen Fu Wa yesterday appeared on Nancy Sit Ka Yin's radio program. He revealed after winning the Best Supporting Actor Hong Kong Film Award he has been working nonstop, as he was busy with a play rehearsal and two movies. For now he still has not had time to celebration. In addition Louis Koo Tin Lok was not in Hong Kong, so he would wait until his return and choose a date to celebrate. His friends were very busy anyway as getting together would be very hard for modern people.

Did Yuen Fu Wa get a raise after the awards? He said, "I can't take things too far, I can't be greed. I am fine with getting what I should. Based on the fact that I want to act, I would no matter how much I would get paid. However not getting paid would be impossible."

Speaking of friend Louisa So Yuk Wa joking about a double wedding with Yuen Fu Wa. Yuen Fu Wa said, "She is just joking, for now I have no plan to wed and haven't had the time to think about it. No one should be too impulsive with marriage. My girlfriend and I are already used to our current lifestyle. We have our own ways. Mutual respect is how everyone can get along."

Louisa So Yuk Wa and boyfriend Poon Chan Leung, Teresa Mo Shun Kwan and others two nights ago attended a skin care product event.

Although he did not win the Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actor, Poon Chan Leung said that he had Ah So's "kisses" to make up for it. He was not unhappy. "As early as 21 years ago THE MAD PHOENIX (NAM HOI SUP SAM LONG) got me a Supporting Actor nomination, but I regretted not attending. This time was like having fun at a theme park for a night." Ah So said, "I am probably the happiest, earlier we went on a double date dinner with Yuen Fu Wa. We stated that whoever won would pay for dinner, so we got a meal out of it." When would they get married? Ah So said that Yuen Fu Wa suggested for them to have a double wedding, but Poon Chan Leung felt that separating them into two fun days would be even better. Actually they already had plans long ago. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

He hoped that this film would show the audience the women's volleyball risk taking spirit that he understands.

At the event, Director Chan Ho Sun spoke about watching his first China women's volleyball match at the 1978 Asia Games in Bangkok. He was 16 at the time, it was also Lang Ping's first overseas competition. When Team China appeared the hot blooded atmosphere was still memorable to him today. He never would have imagined that now he would be able to personally adapt the China women's volleyball story to the silver screen. The release would be in 2020 when the Tokyo Olympic Games would take place. He hoped through the film to cheer on the China women's volleyball team in preparation for the Tokyo Games.

Speaking of her reunion with former co-star Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho) at the Hong Kong Film Awards, Chin Wa was surprised. "A few days ago I just texted him, originally I planned to visit him during my U.S. tour because I have never seen his daughter. I didn't expect him to appear backstage at the award show. I was very happy. We met when we were younger, but only chatted a little before our appearance."

Ng Yin Cho reunited with GEN X COPS (DUT GAING SUN YUN LUI)'s Stephen Fung Tak Lun, Nicholas Tse Ting and Sam Lee Chan Sam. Chin Wa said that the scene was moving and hoped that he would be able to return to Hong Kong to make movies. "He holds a place in Hong Kong films. I wouldn't mind working with him again, but first we will have to find a script and investors."

Ah Jeh heard that the program response was good, which was rather gratifying. Her husband Law Kar Ying was recovering at home. Did she play games with Brother Kar Ying to keep him entertained?

The Chief Executive yesterday announced new Mainland policy that would loosen restrictions on Hong Kong films, hinting that Hong Kong filmmakers would have even more creative space and freedom. Aaron Kwok Fu Sing praised the move for being able to provide Hong Kong films with more opportunities to be enjoyed in the Mainland. It would also help the Hong Kong film industry even more. "I wish Hong Kong film colleagues will remain united and work hard, not only to enable Hong Kong films to be seen in the Mainland but in the entire world!"

Recently working in the Mainland, Pierre Ngo Ka Nin felt that the policy woud not be better. Because in the past Hong Kong film actors and crew members did not have many choices when working in the Mainland. Aside from feature characters, they could not participate in third or fourth tier characters. Finding opportunity in the Mainland was difficult unless the identity card was turned into a Mainland one. Thus he was very happy to hear this news. As for the ability to participate in Mainland film awards like the Golden Rooster Hundred Flower Awards, Ka Nin said that this was an encouragement for Hong Kong filmmakers. Because for now only film restriction policy would be changtes, Ka Nin hoped that in the future Central would loosen television series policy as well so more Hong Kong actors and behind the scene workers would benefit.

Actor Ron Ng Cheuk Hei revealed that this move would be good for all actors. Cheuk Hei said, "When a film or a television series ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
