Kenneth Ma Reveals That Mat Yeung Has Been Upgraded After Injury: Leave the Leg Work to Me

Artistes Kenneth Ma, Sisley Choi, Mat Yeung, Hiromi Wada, etc. were in Tseung Kwan O TVB City for the blessing ceremony of the series "Mind Hunter". Regarding partner Mat getting into a motorcycle accident earlier, where he injured his knee, Kenneth revealed that Ching Ho Wai, who is also in the series, also inadvertently slipped and injured her tailbone earlier; thus, he hopes that, after the blessing ceremony, all is well. Kenneth laughingly said that, ever since Mat got injured, he has been upgraded to 'big brother': "Have to find a double for him. He can sit to do the head shots. Leave the leg work to me, 'Ming Jai'!"

Says That It Is Awesome to Romance Actresses

Regarding whether they had to film dangerous shots, Sisley, who acts as a social worker, revealed that she will get chased by mean people in the series. Kenneth, who plays a psychologist, expressed that he is buy romancing Roxanne Tong, Vivien Yeo, and Grace Wong in the series: "Very awesome. This is the reason for me being in TVB...able to date different girls in series!"

The 35 year old "former Mrs. Leon Lai Ming" Gaile Lok has been away from the big screen for 12 years. Recently she made a comeback with her new film HUSBAND KILLERS (NUI JI FOOK SAU) with Stephy Tang Lai Yun and Chrissie Chau Sau Na. Playing the female Special Duties Unit member, Gaile had a lot of action scenes. Earlier the trio worked on the film at Central.

Around 10PM, Gaile and Stephy arrived on the set to prepare. Gaile in the scene threatened an actor with the sharp knife. Gaile often had bad takes, while Tang Lai Yun looked on helplessly as she waited and often frowned. She even leaned against a pillar and rested her eyes. After Gaile's shoot she rushed to chat with the team but had little exchange with Stephy and Chau Sau Na.

Stephy and Chau Sau Na appeared to get along much better. When they were not in a scene, they sat together and chatted. They even took out their phones for selfies. Later the direcor shot a scene in which Gaile, Stephy and Chau Sau Na walked together in line and the trio finally got together.

Andy Lau Tak Wa has had a lot of good news lately. After winning the Huabiao Best Actor Award in the Mainland, he recently received his third Special Administrative Region government honor with the Bronze Bauhinia badge. Earlier the new film that he produced and starred in, SHOCK WAVE (CHAK DAN JUEN GA), also successfully wrapped up production. Wa Jai even introduced this Cross Harbor Tunnel that was constructed for the production as it was officially unveiled! Wa Jai praised how highly realistic this "Cross Harbor Tunnel" was and joked that he was in Hung Hom during the shoot!

For the new film, the team constructed a "one and only" Cross Harbor Tunnel, the first replica of its kinds in Hong Kong film history. After over two months of production, earlier the entire team finally completed this historical mission as the film officially wrapped up production! That night for Wa Jai's "solo scene" rain poured often during the shoot. After completing the shoot when Wa Jai, director Herman Yau Lai To and producer Koo prepared to pop bottles of champagne to celebrate at the "tunnel" entrance, rain immediately stopped. Even though it was already early in the morning, after many hours of production the team did not appear to be tired at all. Instead laughter lingered.

She said: "I did not sleep well when filming two series earlier and filming (無間道) now. The cast team members include Gallen Lo (羅嘉良), Him Law (羅仲謙) and others and there is many location shootings. It will take place in Kwun Tong, Hong Kong and Mainland China. (Internet film is popular now?) No idea. I guess the audiences can learn more stuff and it has been 4 years since I film series in Hong Kong. I also filmed English sitcom in Singapore earlier."

When asked if she will film TVB series again, Bernice said: "Maybe. It depends on the script and I can go to different radio station and film any series and show. I am a carefree person now." She added it was important to give fresh feeling to the audiences: "Everyone says they see a different side of me and the story is very realistic. It is my first try. (Afraid people will be tired of you filming TVB series?) Nope. Many film series based on true stories now and TVB has many different themes. It has been a long time since I film ancient series."
