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."

The Derek Yee Tung Sing produced, Andrew Lau Wai Keung directed new film KUNG FU MONSTER (MO LUM GWAI SAU) stars Chen Xuedong, Guo Biting, Wang Taili and has special appearance by Zhou Dongyu. Yesterday the film held a press conference in Beijing.

Several Mainland actors had nothing but praise for director Lau Wai Keung's work ethics, stating that the director spared them from danger and more than took care of them. With all the coaxing, Director Lau was all smiles. Zhou Dongyu first said, "Director is too nice! Many scenes didn't need multiple shoots, he got what he wanted in one shot. He would even let you get off work early to go drinking." Chen Xuedong followed with exaggeration, "That's right, I started work at 7 and by 7:30 I am off work! Because Director's lighting is too accurate, before I took my mark Director already spent three days on lighting. He saved all the tough stuff for him so the actors could relax a little!" Everyone said that this was a team with a lot of love, so no one wanted to get off work. However the director would always attentively let them finish the most jobs in the shortest time, so everyone could get off work as soon as possible. They all inevitably had gratitude for the director inside, during the shoot they wanted to take advantage of their time and do their best. The entire team's atmosphere then was great. The director on the set ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Lord Don not only designed his own glasses but also guest modeled. He said that modeling was not difficult at all because nothing was harder than making movies. Huang Shengyi came from Beijing to support Chi Tan. As for the sensitive subject of tax evasion, she stated, "We are law abiding people, with a lot of self control."

Speaking of the Yen Chi Tan, Wang Baoqiang, Simon Yam Tat Wa and Huang Shengyi starred ICEMAN 2 TIME TRAVELER (BING FUNG HUP 2 ji SI HUNG HUNG JEH)'s release after 4 years, Chi Tan stated that he already forgot about this film after such a long time. No one even notified him about the release. Would he promote the film? Chi Tan said, "Too late, I will have to work on a movie in New Zealand. I won't have time to promote." Chi Tan said that too many decision makers were behind the ICEMAN sequel, even he did not know who had the final say. "I don't get ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Carina Lau Ka Ling last night attended a fashion label event. Ka Ling revealed that she was in negotiation for a co-production film. As for when her husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai will return to film, as Wai Jai's manager Ka Ling complained that Wai Jai for now refused to. She had to turn down 10 scripts for him. She even revealed that being his manager actually was not easy at all. "He would have words for me. When I told him to attend an event, he would say that he would only stay for half a hour."

Ka Ling later will attend the Golden Horse Awards. As for work she would in negotiation for two Mainland commercials and co-production films. Her own company was looking for screen writers to write scripts. When would she release her husband Leung Chiu Wai for a movie? Ka Ling said, "He is the one who is unwilling. I turned down 10 scripts for him. Some were unsuitable, and he didn't want to make some. Being his manager actually isn't easy. He would have words for you. When you ask him to attend an event, he would say that he would only stay for half a hour!"

Was he a very "naughty" artist? Ka Ling agreed, "Terrible!" Was taking care of him like Mission Impossible? She nodded, "Right! I have to hurry and find someone to avoid blurring my identity!" She could take a commission. Ka Ling said, "Then I ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Stephy Tang Lai Yan, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, DaDa Chan Jing, Susan Shaw Yam Yam and director Teddy Robin Kwan two nights ago attended the LUCID DREAMS (BAK BO BOON HEI LO OI LOK) premiere. Stephy in the film had a back revealing scene. She said, "The director thought my back was pretty so he added this scene on the spot. Because I trusted the director I agreed without hesitation. This scene is even more able to coordinate with the story's horror atmosphere. During the shoot I asked for the set to be cleared. For now this is going to be my sexiest."

Stephy during the shoot has not begun dating Prince Chiu. He did not find out until he saw the stills. She sad, "Maybe it is his bottom line too, but after he saw the stills he had no response. No response represents good response, at least he wouldn't object. Actually I show my back in what I normally wear too." For such scenes, Stephy said that she would not deliberately ask her boyfriend first. "Everyone in this business would understand, we respect each other. We have no need to explain too clearly. If my boyfriend is making an intimate scene, I wouldn't be jealous either. I don't want to be limited, so I wouldn't limit him. However I may choose not to watch."
