New Series Holds Completion Banquet, Roger Kwok and Kenneth Ma...Who Is Paying the Bill?

Artistes Roger Kwok, Kenneth Ma, Ali Lee, Natalie Tong, Crystal Fung, Stephen Wong, et al. went to Wan Chai in the evening to attend the completion banquet of TVB's new series "Big White Duel". Roger and Kenneth engage in a battle of words in the series but get along well in private. Roger even expressed, "Jointly paying the bill with a few of the leads tonight, but it is unfortunate that many people are working. Hope to have another dinner later with everyone there". He and Kenneth both expressed that, because it was a large cast filming the series this time, everyone filmed extremely comfortably and felt great, and there was also sufficient resting time.

Roger also revealed, "The most memorable was me and Kenneth filming a scene in the legislative council. There were many professional terms that are used there. In the series, there are also characters that resemble well-known people, but it is only a reasonable coincidence".

Becomes a Doctor

When Kenneth was asked about his partner in another series, Samantha Ko, getting injured earlier, Roger suddenly became a doctor and asked, "Did [she] get an X-ray? How was the CT? I am Hong Kong's cheapest doctor for reducing intracranial pressure". Kenneth immediately said, "But you are Hong Kong TVB's most expensive actor!" Roger will be travelling abroad with his family for the summer holidays: "I have already been on summer holidays for ten days. Will go on a few trips this year, but will still be in Southeast Asia".

Planning to Film a Second Season

Regarding whether "Big" already has plans to film a second season, Kenneth suddenly jokingly said, "I really want to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Director Dante Lam Chiu Yin appeared at the New York Asian Film Festival with OPERATION RED SEA, THE BEAST STALKER (JING YUN) and UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN) and received great treatment from the event. To recognize Director Lam's talent and proud achievements, the New York Asian Film Festival presented the Daniel A Craft Award to him, his best birthday present this year.

"Because this time THE BEAST STALKER and UNBEATABLE are also being screened, THE BEAST STALKER was a movie that few foresaw would be a hit. Ten years later, I am bringing THE BEAST STALKER, UNBEATABLE and OPERATION RED SEA together, I feel extra sentimental. When I got on stage just now, I got a little choked up and needed to pause for half a second."

This trip happened to take place during Director Lam's birthday (July 1st), but due to the tight schedule he could only celebrate with producer Leung Fung Ying and the team at dinner. "I didn't have time to stay and sightsee. Earlier I went to Los Angeles and had several meetings with foreign companies to discuss any possibility of working together. we even discussed which latest technologies to use. At the same time I also saw some not yet released new films, to see if I have any chance to try with possible sequels."

In recent years superhero films ruled the global market. How exciting would they be if they fell into Director Lam's hands? He said, "Actually we talked about some famous film series and whether we could ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
