Ali Lee Wrongly Calls Kenneth Ma by Real Name When Filming Series

Roger Kwok, Kenneth Ma, Natalie Tong, Ali Lee, Kelly Cheung, Matthew Ho, et al. attended the blessing ceremony of "Big White Duel". Kenneth acts as cardiothoracic surgeon 'Tong Ming'; partner Ali revealed that she mixed it up during work before: "Sometimes I wrongly called him by his real name, 'Ma Ming'. Had to immediately correct myself". Kenneth expressed that he has a romantic storyline with Ali and Natalie in the series, but it is underplayed. He said, "No kiss scenes. I also want to have [some]! Ha ha". He immediately changed the topic to Roger, saying that his scenes with Kelly and Ashley Chu are rather intense. Ali previously revealed that she was scared of fainting upon seeing blood; portraying a doctor this time requires having to encounter bloody surgery scenes. She laughingly said that there were no difficulties: "I am actually scared of seeing my own blood. Not scared of seeing other people's blood. When I was younger, I cut myself while making salad before...immediately got shocked and fainted upon seeing myself bleeding, but nothing happened when I saw bleeding during filming".

Roger Kwok and Kelly Cheung Ask Each Other for Guidance

Regarding Kenneth saying that he had many intense scenes, Roger laughingly said that they were already cut out: "Leave it for filming the movie version first. I do not have intense scenes. Perhaps Kenneth just said that because he was jealous of me". Roger said that filming is very smooth and pleasant. Maintaining one's weight is the most labourious. Have to concentrate on memorizing the dialogue and learning how to use the surgical equipment from real neurosurgeons. He laughingly said, "I am not ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Emperor Motion Picture OPERATION RED SEA continued its momnetum as its Hong Kong box office approached HK$ 10 million. Director Dante Lam Chiu Yin yesterday attended an audience appreciation event in Mongkok. Speaking of the Mainland box office of 3.63 billion yuan RMB, Director Lam said, "In the Mainland it will at last run until the 15th. Earlier Hollywood films knocked it down and the scheduling also reduced, but we climbed back up again. Everyday it makes 5 or 6 million (RMB), I personally hope it would make over 3.65 billion at the end."

Earlier Lam Chiu Yin visited Malaysia to scout location his new Emperor film GUNG GUP GAU WOON (EMERGENCY RESCUE). "I just got back from scouting location in Malaysia. Later I will go to Belgium, Malta, and Mexico, then to the U.S. because my daughter is graduating."

"Mexico has built a giant studio by the sea, Belgium has a 36 meters deep artificial sea. Actors before had to accept swimming training. Lead actor (Eddie) Peng Yu-Yan was gagging from just hearing about it. His pecs are so great, his lungs should have some capacity. At least he could go several minutes without breathing."

Director Lam admitted that because setting construction and actor training required time, the production start had to be postponed from August to the end of the year. Aside from Peng Yu-Yan, other characters have not been set but romantic scenes would be added. However because the shoot would take at least 5 ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Nina Paw Hee Ching, Alex Fong Chung Shun, Carlos Chan Ka Lok and Kelly Chen Ka Lei were busy with their new film YUT CUP JI HUNG (CLASS ONE ACCUSATION), which shot on location earlier in Sham Shui Po. In the story Sister Bau's grandson was accused of murder. She pleaded for lawyers Fong Chung Shun and Chen Ka Lok for help. The crew covered the exits with black cloth to avoid exposure. After a hour the shoot was completed and Sister Paw left. Reportedly great actors Fong Chung Shun, Liu Kai Chi, Patrick Tam Yiu Man and others would have many court tag of war scenes. No wonder Fong Chung Shun admitted that the long professional lines "got" him, as preparation took twice as long.

Fong Chung Shun said that he was the happiest about working with "god mother" Sister Bau for the first time. "We have known each other for 30 years, finally we have a chance to work together. (What is the difference between on and off screen Sister Bau?) None, she is just as kind and easy going." Because his Emperor web drama still has not wrapped up production, he was severely shorted on rest from ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Jazz Lam and his non-celebrity wife, Kary Tung, signed their marriage papers last October. Today, they held their wedding ceremony at hotel in Tseung Kwan O. The newlyweds appeared at 10:15am. Jazz led out the groomsmen, including best man Benjamin Yuen, Natalie Tong, Kenneth Ma, Kevin Cheng, Stefan Wong, Stephen Wong, and some non-celebrity friends.

The groomsmen accepted an interview. Regarding whether they got played by the bridesmaids when fetching the bride in the morning, Natalie laughingly said that the process was smooth: "The process was smooth. It was lighthearted. We also got played by them. Benjamin and Stephen had to eat insects...eating salty bamboo bees with wasabi. Also had to do the splits, but no one was able to do it!" Regarding whether Jazz's love declaration was moving, Kenneth laughingly said, "Jazz talked to the point of tearing up, but we could only laugh".

When asked whether the groomsmen already divided up their jobs, Kevin laughingly said that he was responsible for putting the bits and pieces together and taking photos. Natalie also laughingly said, "Actually don't need that many groomsmen. I am responsible for the logistics; Kenneth is responsible for drinking in place [of others]!"

When asked whose capacity for liquor was the best, Kenneth laughingly said, "Will drink my entire life's quota tonight! My capacity for liquor is quite good!" The groomsmen beside him immediately teased him for being able to have 'a thousand drinks without getting drunk'. Kevin even revealed, "Haven't seen Kenneth drunk in a long time. About ten years. The last time was the completion banquet of 'A Fistful of Stances'. Was so drunk that he hugged me, and I did not know what he was talking about!" Kenneth also laughingly said, "I am always .....

Bosco Wong and Ron Ng are handsome actors from the same time frame, but the two actually have not collaborated much. Since filming a series in 2003, there has been at least 14 years that they have not had an opportunity to encounter each other. It was not until leaving TVB that they portrayed brothers in a web drama. Ron laughingly said that he took this rare opportunity to use the four months of filming the web drama to finally make up for the many lost years of his relationship with Bosco!

After leaving TVB one after the other, they reunited in Shaw Brothers' web drama, "Flying Tiger", last year, portraying brothers who share the same father but different mothers; there were many partnering scenes. Regarding bringing about this time's collaboration, apart from Shaw Brothers executive Virginia Lok, the two also laughingly said that senior Michael Miu was appealing. Ron laughingly said, "Tell Michael to charge less! He is too expensive...almost the entire series' budget. For every explosion, the director shook his head, saying that they have gone over budget again! (Want to meet the Hong Kong viewers again?) Also want this series to have an opportunity to broadcast on TVB. If they do not broadcast it, may not be able to make up for Michael's pay".

No More Friends

Regarding Bosco doing well in Mainland, he laughingly said, "Still cannot compare to Michael! We just came to accommodate him! (Very different from Mainland filming?) There are differences in terms of lifestyle, filming, and culture. There are also pros to filming in Mainland. Because [you] are filming in other places for a long period of time, would concentrate more when filming because [you] have no more friends...just go back to the room to look at the script after .....

Teresa Mo Shun Kwan and new comer Ling Man Lung in the film TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY (WONG GUM FA) played mother and son. In the film Sister Mo played Mrs. Wong, who has to take care of her autistic and mid level intellectual disabled son. She even faces a cheating husband as the family that she works so hard to hold together becomes shattered in an instant. At a lost, Mrs. Wong even comes up with a revenge plan to kill the mistress!

Recommending Ling Man Lung from the stage to the silver screen, Sister Mo brings up how she discovered "her son". She said that his portrayal of the 16 year old son in the play THE SIN FAMILY caught her eye as she felt that he was very energetic, clean cut and handsome. However experience told Sister Mo that what she saw on stage could not be considered accurate. "Often when you see from afar on the stage (the actor) is very handsome, but up close......after the show I deliberately try to get a closer look off stage. After one glimpse I really want to work with this young man. So I recommend him to people I work with several time. Finally we work together on TOMORROW." ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Director Adam Wong Sau Ping two nights ago attended the 42nd Hong Kong International Film Festival award ceremony. As a member of the "international short film" competition jury, he said that many short film contestants came from Europe and the short films had very different style from Hong Kong. More were experimental while Hong Kong's would tell the story traditionally. He said, "No Hong Kong short film qualified, but after watching them I didn't feel any quality difference from Hong Kong. The difference was in style. I felt that Hong Kong short film in the past decade or so developed very well."

As for THE WAY WE DANCE 3 (KONG MO PAI 3), Wong Sau Ping said that he planned to start production this summer. He has talked with individual actors to prepare for the production. The cast would be a mix of new and old. He said, "Babyjohn and (Cherry) Ngan Cheuk Ling would return, their characters would be very attractive. Some actors from the first films would have major roles this time."
