Sammi revealed that he recently she has been busy with the Ann Hui On Wa produced film FARAGA IN MARA (FA JIU JI MEI). In a few days she would work with Andy Lau Tak Wa. She said that she has not worked with Wa Jai in a very long time. Last time she guest starred in his film, this time he would lend a hand because Wa Jai told the producer as long as Sammi needed a hand. She was very touched, but did not know how to repay him since Wa Jai had everything already. She heard that Wa Jai loved peanuts, but she could not find ones without butter.

Speaking of her character in the film, Sammi revealed that her character would have two younger half sisters, one from Chongqing and the other Taipei. Mainland actress Li Xiaofeng and Taiwan actress Megan Lai would play them. Because the film would be about family, the story would be very touching.

Ling Man Lung had 10 years of stage experience but this was his film debut. Sister Mo caught him in a play once and thus recommended him to director Chan Tai Li. The film was about the difficulty of a middle aged woman had with caring for an autistic son and facing a marital crisis. The mother and son relationship performance required a lot of chemistry. Sister Mo said that they would rehearse before the shoot so everyone would be more in character. Because it was his first film, Siu Lung had to adjust to the sense of space that was different from the stage and the camera angles. He also thanked Sister Mo for her care and guidance during the shoot.

Sister Mo's outstanding acting was beyond any doubt, thus she was the favorite for Best Actress. Sister Mo said that the film brought attention to autism and more information, which already made her very happy. As for the award, she of course greedily hoped to win another one as a bonus. Siu Lung hoped that Sister Mo and the director would win. He said that he was already very pleased to have two nominations for his first film and the was thankful for the recognition.

Best Actress Anita Yuen Wing Yi and Best Actor Sean Lau Ching Wan after 23 years finally reunite for a film! Yesterday at a Central restaurant, the Alan Mak Siu Fai directed Emperor Motion Picture INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG WON YIN MOK) started production. They went from their past "couple" relationship to horn locking enemies, as the ICAC agent Ching Wan and the corrupted customs chief Len Len "negotiated". The most "eye catching" had to be Director Mak's revelation of his "relationship" with Len Len. "I am her cousin, we grew up together!"

Actually Director Mak's mother is a cousin of Len Len's father, but Len Len and Director Mak worked together for the first time. Although this time was as a guest star, Len Len admitted, "Most of my past movies I play the good guy, this time I get to work. So after reading the script I decided to take it." Len Len and Ching Wan lost connection after THE GOLDEN GIRLS (SHAN SHUI YAU SEUNG FUNG) in 1995. This "reunion" made Ching Wan sentimentally say, "Seeing her, a lot of film production memories come back." Len Len said, "Ching Wan hasn't changed much, he talks just a little as sual but he is more and more ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

 "Big White Duel" Blessing Ceremony

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)
