Gigi Leung Wing Kei and Isabel Chan Yat Ning yesterday worked on the Lunar New Year film MISSBEHAVIOR on the streets of Wanchai. Playing a patrol cop, Leung Wing Kei was lead actor Pang Ho Cheung's former girlfriend. She revealed that in the film she had a lot of argument scenes, but she would not spoil whether she was "misbehaving". In uniform, Gigi had to wear a jacket to cover her costume. She had to watch what she was doing to keep people from mistaking the real police and affecting the police mage. However some pedestrians also recognized her. She told them that she was working on POLICE REPORT.

Pang Ho Cheung said that he would ask whoever he felt was suitable to guest star, so far he has confirmed Patrick Tse Yin and Miriam Yeung Chin Wa. Shawn Yue Man Lok however had to check his schedule. "Other Lunar New Year films have already wrapped, I have to play catch up and finish before the 22nd. Post production takes time."

Speaking of Golden Harvest founder Raymond Chow Man Wai's passing, Pang Ho Cheung said, "I was very surprised, Louis Cha is gone! Chow Wai Man passed away as well! I am very saddened and very shocked. My first film as a director YOU SHOOT I SHOOT (MAI HUNG PAK YUN) only went into production due to Chow Man Wai's support. He believed in me and .....

Golden Harvest founder Raymond Chow Man Wai passed away at age 91. He made tremendous contributions to Hong Kong films in the 70s to the 90s, cultivated many famous filmmakers like Bruce Lee, Michael Hui Koon Man, Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung Kam Bo.

Jackie Chan yesterday posted an eulogy and photos to remember Chow Man Wai. Jackie Chan recalled, "Remembering Mr. Chow Man Wai: he gave me the name of Jackie Chan. In the 80s, after THE DRUNKEN MASTER, I joined Golden Harvest. At the time my English name was still Jacky Chan. At the time the boss Chow Man Wai said, since you are in Golden Harvest you have to start over. Why not change Jacky to Jackie? Since then, I became Jackie Chan. Golden Harvest's Mr. Chow Man Wai and Mr. (Leonard) Ho Koon Cheung, one was responsible for business development and the other for film production. They was the perfect partners at work. They gave my career all new possibilities and also the chance to make movies that I really wanted to make.

Since officially joining Golden Harvest, my first film was THE YOUNG MASTER (SI DAI CHOOK MA). I remembered one scene took over 50 takes, all I had to do was the kick a fan in the air and catch it one handed beautifully. I gave my all to make this film well, to live up to the trust that the two bosses had in ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Cecilia So Lai Shan and Ng Siu Hin yesterday promoted their film NAPPING KID (YIK HEUNG YAU GWAI) on the radio. So Lai Shan said that the performance was somewhat difficult. Because the character was very smart, she was a little different from herself. She even revealed that Ng Siu Hin had a topless performance in the film. Ng Siu Hin said, "I don't know why the director wants people to take off their clothes out of the blue."

This would be the second film that So Lai Shan and Ng Siu Hin worked together on, but in the film Ng Siu Hin still had to play her "soldier". "We have a little romance and flirting, but I don't get the girl. (Was it very regrettable?) Yes, can we late make one that I do get the girl?" Cecilia said no. In real life she was simple and direct, as she felt "recruiting an army" would waste time and hurt others. Ng Siu Hin said that in real life he has been a "soldier". "She didn't like me but didn't turn me down either. I was very unhappy, I always thought I had hope. The 'soldiers' are really dumb!"

Eddie Peng Yu-Yan and director Dante Lam Chiu Yin worked together again on their new film GUNG GUP GAU WOON (EMERGENCY RESCUE). Lam Chiu Yin posted a group of Peng Yu-Yan beach training photos online. "@PengYuYan Sunshine, Beach, Training, which one would you choose?" Peng Yu-Yan humorously replied, "Practice makes perfect!" with a photo of him running happily on the beach.

GUNG GUP GAU WOON is about a sea rescue operation. Actors need to have complete grasp of water rescue skills. Thus before the film officially begins production, all actors including Peng Yu-Yan have to go through a highly intense hellish training. It includes diving, night time rescue and other rescue team required skills; from the photos, aside from physical training, Peng Yu-Yan also has antagonistic and flexibility training methods like the sport of frisbee. The range of training could be imagined. Earlier scratched bya a frisbee, Peng Yu-Yan also demonstrates his "risk taking" work attitude.

Isabella Leong Lok Sze, DaDa Chan Jing, Hanjin Tan (Chan Woon Yan), Tsui Tin Yau and others yesterday attended the production start ceremony for the Lunar New Year film GUNG HEI BAK POR. Looking much slimming, Isabella said that she might have lost the baby fat. She absolutely did not have anorexia as rumored. Currently she weighed 118 pounds and was not considered too thin. She said that in the film she would play a "sassy lady", but she was not at liberty to reveal the details because she would only guest star for two days. Actually this collaboration happened by chance. Isabella said, "A week ago I ran into the director at a shopping center. He said that he happened to want to ask me to make a movie and the production would start next week. I asked could it be such a coincidence? At the time he said that he did not have a script yet. I just got the script yesterday. I was very afraid of working without preparation. The director truly overestimated me. If I didn't run into him, I wouldn't have the chance to make this movie. Yet he ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Stephy Tang Lai Yan and Grace Chan Hoi Lam in the film KEYBOARD WARRIORS (HEI DAI JO) played sisters without parents. The cop Tang Lai Yan also acted as a mother, Chan Hoi Lam was very rebellious. The sisters were in a love hate relationship and constantly argued, but real emotions came from the fighting.

Grace made a movie for the first time and felt strange and nervous. She was also afraid that her performance would not be good enough. Stephy had over ten years of film experience but she did not detect any nervousness from Grace. Her performance did not resemble that of a new comer's either, thus they had a very pleasant experience from working together. In the film they had many passionate argument scenes. Grace even had to use foul language to yell at her older sister. Because the director added it without warning Stephy, during the performance the normally polite Grace surprised her. She was able to express it, which was the response that the director wanted. In addition, during the argument they would have physical confrontations. Stephy said that once she pushed the frail Grace and she fell two feet back. She really was afraid that Grace would have broken bones. Yet because Grace was slim, Stephy often did not dare to stand too forward to avoid looking too fat. Grace said ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam), Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Andy Hu Chi On, Grace Chan Hoi Lam and others two nights ago attended an award ceremony. Chau Sau Na was limping. She said, "Earlier I made an action film and even had to run in high heels. I have high arch feet. The doctor said that I am not suitable for wearing heels all the time, but I am vain and work requires it I ended up with foot pain and bunion. So I am not at work I would take off the shoes to rest. Lately for film audience appreciation events I would wear sneakers. The doctor suggests for me to add shoe padding. I know now in heels I don't walk pretty, I look like a penguin."

Sister Na revealed that after finishing her film promotion she would have time off. Then she could treat her foot pain and go on vacation. She said, "I welcome dates at any time, but so far I haven't run into ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
