Kenneth Ma and Mandy Wong were in Shek Kip Mei filming a dating scene for the new series "The Exorcist's Meter 2.0". Kenneth's fans were even present waiting for a picture. Recently, the weather has begun to turn hot. The two's costumes were long-sleeved winter clothes. Kenneth expressed that the background of the storyline is in winter. They have also filmed from winter to summer. The filming was quite comfortable previously; now, the weather has begun to turn hot, so it is more labourious...hope that mid-May quickly comes so that filming is done. Mandy said that she filmed in Lung Ha Wan earlier; the most labourious was under the hot sun.

When asked about their work arrangements after completing the filming of "Exorcist's", Kenneth expressed that he was not aware of his new work yet. Mandy revealed that she would be going to Toronto to do a stage performance and will be singing nine songs then; it will be like a mini concert. She laughingly said that she already made plans to practice her singing with Paisley Hu.

Kenneth had a face of envy upon hearing this, laughingly saying that he originally had an opportunity to do a stage performance with Hubert Wu previously, but the series crew only let Hubert go in the end, while he has to continue filming the series: "They all have opportunities to go out to make money. Only I don't have any. Really makes me jealous". In addition, when Jacqueline Wong's current situation was mentioned, Kenneth kept his lips sealed, expressing that he would not be making a response. When asked whether he has contacted Jacqueline, and that it has been said that the radio DJ who made a visit to Jacqueline's house is Sunny ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

"Forensic IV" Losing Ten Million to Reshoot Jacqueline Wong's Scenes

Artiste Jacqueline Wong's cheating scandal with the married Andy Hui enraged the entire city, greatly damaging her image, and has also caused the two's work to come to a complete halt. Her theme song, 《在心中》, for "Lo and Behold" was immediately removed, and the four new series that she already completed filming, including "The Offliners", "Maid Alliance", "Lower Ngau Tau Kok Soprano", and "Forensic IV", have also been affected. "Offliners", which was supposed to air after "The Defected", was the first to be removed. According to a reliable source, it has already been decided that TVB anniversary series "Forensic" will be reshot, which includes the seven days of location filming in Taiwan. There is a total of 50 filming units in Taiwan and Hong Kong, in addition to having to rent the filmmaking equipment again. The loss is over $10 million!

Previously Considered Digitally Altering the Face

The reason for the reshoots is the fact that this series has already signed a contract with Mainland, and will be simultaneously broadcasting in Hong Kong and Mainland in mid-November. It has to be approved in order to broadcast series in Mainland. The relevant party has always been strict with artistes who have a negative image; therefore, if an actor is involved in a love and sex scandal, the chance of approval is almost zero. Thus, in order to avoid affecting the broadcast date, TVB has decided to reshoot. Jacqueline, who portrays an Internet reporter in the series, is considered the third female lead. The affected portion is one-third. Because reshoots take time, the series crew has already swiftly contacted the affected artistes, Raymond Wong, Selena Lee, Shaun Tam, et al. Fortunately, everyone understands and ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Kenneth Ma has been filming the new series "The Exorcist's Meter 2.0". Last Thursday night, Kenneth had to film a scene where he and Mandy Wong brought Ho Yuen Tung's 'Hung Mau Jai' up to the mountain to catch a fairy. Because the child actor could not get off work too late, the series crew had to work quickly. Kenneth and Mandy were extremely professional and did not NG much. 'Lung Mau Jai' had to take more time and kept shooting. Kenneth, who was always on standby outside of the camera, suddenly wandered off while waiting, and walked to a watchtower alone. It was dark, and you could only see him staring at the sky and looking at the ground in deep thought. After taking a breath, Kenneth quickly returned without affecting the progress of filming. The reporters could see that Kenneth was more silent than before. When he did not have to be in position, he would only stand on one side or go on his phone, and look at the blank playback monitor. Upon seeing this, Mandy also did not dare to bother him. When changing the location, Kenneth also walked to a nearby pavilion to be in quiet thought alone; the air was filled with sadness.

Working Hard to Make Money Is the Most Practical

When Kenneth was asked whether he deliberately walked away to take a breath, he emphasized three times that he there was nothing with him: "Did not walk away to escape the silence. Just never went there. Just walked there to take a look. There is nothing with me. Why would there be something? Okay. Feel okay. Everything is okay. Can eat and sleep. Everything is normal. Also no problem with filming emotional ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Nicholas Tse Ting Fung yesterday returned from Beijing to Hong Kong. He said that he would stay in Hong Kong for a week to work on the Benny Chan Muk Sing directed new film RAGING FIRE (NO FOR), which would take 2 to 3 months. This film will mainly shoot on location in Hong Kong and Macau, so he will not have to fly overseas. Ting Fung said that Chan Muk Sing's films inevitably will have dangerous stunts, so he has gotten himself into shape and would train in weapons. "Aside from physical training, I always will have weapons training. Lord Tan (Donnie Yen Chi Tan) will be responsible for choosing which weapon. For dangerous stunts I won't tell him to hold back. We know how to adjust. It won't be our first collaboration anyway. Years ago we already sparred in DRAGON TIGER GATE (LUNG FU MOON), even if old wounds may be aggravated it will be normal."

Ting Fung's former wife Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi posted recent photos of their sons in Singapore. Ting Fung said that happened earlier. He said that he would deliberately tell anyone when he would take his sons on vacation.

Teresa Mo Shun Kwan yesterday worked on a commercial. Last year Sister Mo became a Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress, did she get a raise? Sister Mo said that it was about the heart and not money. "Dr. Chan is my benefactor. Back then my younger daughter had the swine flu, few dared to treat her and said that she had to be quarantined. Dr. Chan saved my younger daughter. Then I asked Dr. Chan needed a spokesperson because I couldn't think of any way to return the favor. Of course I still got paid. We have been working together ever since." Would she appear in the commercial with her daughter? Sister Mo declined. "I wouldn't ask her to, Dr. Chan didn't ask and knew that my daughters don't like to be on camera."

Sister Mo said that she also had to take care of her cookie shop business. Although business has been good, she has not broken even yet because she invested a lot into it. Would she be more cautious with her script selection now? Sister Mo said, "When I take a role the script has to be right for me. I have always been very cautious with script selection. I really want a good script, because one shot would be enough to hit -- like TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY (WONG GUM FA) and STILL HUMAN (LUN LOK YUN). (No script has been able to move you yet?) I am in discussion."

Sister Hung happily said that last night was the first celebration dinner after her award. She invited her friends and the media. "I don't have many friends, I have some generation gap with young people!" Then how would she get a new boyfriend? Sister Hung said, "Whether I get married or not it's none of your business, maybe I am already secretly married! I have an illegitimate daughter (dog), actually I am not in a hurry!" She also said that she was very happy to see decade old friends. "Everyone is alive and kicking, which is great joy. Last year several friends passed away. Normally we would be working and might not have a chance to sit down and have dinner!"

After the award Sister Hung said that she did not deliberately increase her salary. She also forgot how long has it been since her last raise. "I have always leaned toward the super low side, I just want to haggle like I am at the butcher stall. My price is clearly labeled. If I am forced or ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Because of his investment in the film, he has a part in the two awards! He really was thoughtful, when you saw him you knew he was a little tired. I asked him if he wanted to eat and he said he was very ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
