The Scud (Wan Cheung) directed, Amanda Lee Wai Man and Susan Shaw Yam Yam starred film THIRTY YEARS OF ADONIS two nights ago held its premiere. Scud revealed that he was already an Amanda fan in the Echo era and wanted to invite his idol to make a movie and sing the theme song long ago, but Amanda at the time turned him down to vocal cord issues. This time she finally was able to. Aside from performing, Amanda's songs were also used for the film score.

Amanda revealed that this time she guest starred as a singer and had an ambiguous relationship with the protagonist. She even had a back baring scene. She was so nervous that she was sweating bullets and kept holding on to her towel to avoid wardrobe malfunction. Did she give her husband any advanced notice? She said, "Of course, my husband didn't mind. He even joked that I should make a car rocking scene because the protagonist in the story is a driver. He is all talk, haha!"

Gillian Chung Yun Tung, JJ Jia (Ga Hiu Sun), Candy Yu On On, Ling Man Lung two nights ago attended their film MISSING (SUK JUNG)'s production wrap banquet. The soon to be official "Mrs. Lai" Ah Gil was radiant and rather talkative. Speaking of her December wedding banquet's progress, Ah Gil revealed, "We just went to Mexico for five days for an underwater wedding photo shoot. The shoot was an adventure for me. The temperature there was only in the teens (Celsius). It was very cold and very rough as I was in the water for several hours. This was also the first time I was in Mexico. After I saw JURASSIC PARK i thought it was very pretty, so we went to Mexico for the shoot. In the end I got local make up artist and hair stylist, I was made up like it was for Halloween. I looked like I was Thai. You couldn't question the make up artist, but he insisted on very heavy make up and said 'under water is different'. Luckily in water it couldn't be seen clearly, before going in I didn't dare to pose for photos. When I got back to the hotel after the shoot I passed by a mirror, and I scared myself when I looked into the mirror. (Did your husband have any reaction?) He made fun of me. I was a few degrees darker and he was a few degrees lighter, but the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Louis Cheung Kai Chung and Chrissie Chau Sau Na two nights ago promoted the film HOTEL SOUL GOOD (NUI WONG CHONG DOH JING) with a street performance. They joked that they formed the band "Tonight" just for this promotion. It was the band that came together in the shortest time and the soonest to break up in the Hong Kong music scene, as it perhaps took 10 minutes. Sister Na was only responsible for pretending to sing, while Cheung Kai Chung played his song WOOD GRAIN. They attracted a passionate uncle to dance along.

They said that they have been very actively attending audience appreciation events all over Hong Kong. On Halloween's eve they would still do the same. Would they dress up? Cheung Kai Chung joked, "I would be Chau Sau Na, and she would be Cheung Kai Chung. I hope to be able to bring in whole families to the movie." He said that he also took his son to see it. It was his son's first Hong Kong film. His son not only said that it was entertaining but also cried from certain scenes. He could not help but say to his son, "You are pretty romantic!"

Stephy Tang Lai Yun, Grace Chan Hoi Lam, Larine Tang Yueping attended their new film KEYBOARD WARRIORS (HEI DAI JO)'s premiere two nights ago. Playing sisters, Stephy and Grace said that they constantly had to argue in the film. In one scene Grace even yelled at Stephy with foul language to add to the explosive atmosphere. Claiming to have never used foul language, Grace said that before the shoot she kept thinking about how to use the foul language in grammar. If she did not use it well people would make fun of her. Thus she considered it as a breakthrough performance. Stephy said that she did not know about the added foul language before, because the director wanted her to have the feeling of surprise and open her eyes on Grace. "At the time I thought Grace unknowingly used foul language, later I learned that she and the director had it planned all along. She used it pretty authentically."

In her first film Grace admitted that she was not used to it at first. She was nervous when faced with an all new team and worried that her performance would not be good enough. Did she ask Stephy for any acting advice? Stephy said, "She doesn't need any, during her performance she didn't seem like a newcomer to film at all. I didn't sense her nerves. Everyone had a lot of fun." ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Former child star Louis Cheung Kai Chung years ago transitioned from singer to actor. After starting in television his acting was recognized and he grew hotter and hotter. In recent years he switched to film and performed decently as well. So far this year he has already had 7 film releases. His co-stars like DaDa Chan Jing and Chrissie Chau Sau Na would often burst out in laughing fits when working with him. Cheung Kai Chung joked that he trained for over 30 years to be able to make people happy like that.

Cheung Kai Chung has been making movies in two or three years. He joked that now he still is a film new comer as he participated in different productions as learning experience. "I have been very happy. I finally get to work with many people I never imagined I would, like (Tony) Leung Chiu Wai, (Aaron) Kwok Fu Sing, (Nick) Cheung Ka Fai, Chau Sau Na, (Athena) Chu Yan, (Louis) Koo Tin Lok, Teddy Robin (Kwan) and (DaDa) Chan Jing. The feeling is very wonderful." As a result of the lawsuit between his management company and TVB, last year he was rumored to be banned by TVB and since has vanished from TVB series. He made the change to film. Ah Chung said, "I was never worried. Whatever Heaven arranges has to be for the best! I am very grateful to the television station for giving me the chance to start my acting road. People ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Hong Kong Performing Artist Guild vice president Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Hong Kong Federation of Film Workers president Tin Kai Man and director Joe Cheung Tung Cho two nights ago attended the classic disaster fund raising film THE BANQUET (HO MOON YEH YIN)'s restored version performance to celebrate the world audio visual heritage day.

Ka Tung said that when the film was released he attended as a viewer. Everyone in the film was a superstar, however he of course did not want the chance to make this type of film again because it was made to raise fund after a disaster. Aside from acting, he recently has been busy with creating a film script about two cops. It has been in preparation for two years and he has already found investors. He revealed that it will be shot in Hong Kong and he was in contact with the actors he wanted. "I originally wouldn't act. Because I would have to produce, acting as well would easily have blind spots. However the investors want me to perform."

He admitted that he also was responsible for the Performing Artist Guild's duties and had interest in investing in plays in hopes of cultivating new directors and actors. He said, "Take a look at my dark eye circles, last night I was still watching videos at home!"

Artists Louis Cheung Kai Chung and Chrissie Chau Sau Na two nights ago attended the new film HOTEL SOUL GOOD (NUI WONG CHONG DOH JING)'s audience appreciation event at the movies. Although they attended a few shows they did not look tired at all! Ah Chung admitted that good word of mouth was the most important. Did his wife Kay Tse On Kay see it yet? He said, "She saw the first cut. I don't need a review from her, I am OK with her saying she liked it. Instead my son after watching said that a crying spot really wasn't like me. I thought he actually was pretty romantic." With three movies at the same time, would he forget his singer identity? He joked that now singing has become privatized. "I would sing in the shower, or at some anniversary banquets!"

Chrissie was asked about the financial dispute with her manager. She said that everything was still in the process and the lawyers were handling it, thus she was not at liberty to comment. Was she confident about getting the money back? She said, "I left it for the lawyers to handle! It's troublesome! However for now I haven't been too affected."

Shawn Yue Man Lok, Bianca Wu Lam, Kay Tse On Kay, DaDa Chan Jing, Jacquelin Chong Sze Man, Cheung Tat Ming, Tsui Tin Yau, Jan Lamb Hoi Fung two nights ago attended a stand up comedy show. Lok Jai revealed, "I have new jobs in negotiation but nothing has been confirmed yet." Because he has one or two stories that he wants to make, he hopes to be able to form a team to make it happen. However he hasn't thought about directing or producing. "As for the story for now it has to be kept confidential, it will be amazing!"

As a father would he like to play a father? He admitted, "I have thought about it, but I wouldn't deliberately make these movies because I have a child. (Would you set upper and lower limits for your acting after becoming a father?) Dangerous stunts, (Intimate scenes?) From the wife's stand point of course I would try to reduce them. Although my wife hasn't mentioned them, I would cut down on my own."
