Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin in the film 77 HEARTBREAKS (YUEN LEUNG TA 77 CHI) played family with Best Actress Kara Wai Ying Hung. In one scene another relative suddenly passed away. The heartbroken Ah Sa and her mother Wai Ying Hung wept. When they took their marks they were already hugging and sobbing in character. Crying on cue truly as a display of substance for them, the audience conceivably would be able to sense that sorrow through the silver screen. Later Ah Sa said that she has always admired Sister Hung and even said that her "set presence" was very strong. Her emotional performance was precise and accurate, which was very helpful to how easily she was able to get into character.

Working with Ah Sa again, Wai Ying Hung was very happy to see Ah Sa's acting improvement today. "Today she really is a big girl, I can see her in command of her performance, her emotions flow very naturally."

Wai Sze Nga admitted that her parents had a very tough time of taking care of her. Recently she has been ill as her cough has been persistent. "Mommy has to get up early to brew the herbal medicine for me, she would also pick me up from work. She sleeps later and gets up earlier than I do. Lately Mommy found a rare prescription and applied oil for me to stop the cough. She would apply it to my chest, back and calves. Although it's a little awkward, actually it feels very sweet." She even described her mother as a magical healer. After her family's pet fish was injured she applied blue medicine on it and brushed its white spots with a toothbrush. She managed to cure it.

"Xanadu" Yoyo Wu is optimistic and happy, but in the film TOURNAMENT 4 she plays a tragic woman who often suffers domestic abuse at the hands of her husband. It absolutely is a huge acting challenge that she admitted was rather hard to handle. "I am a very happy person, people at work are funny too. Yet as soon as I get into character I have to cry. My emotion has to be very down. It's like a personality split!"

Playing a bone setting master, Sam Leong Sing Chi learned that Yoyo's husband often hit her, took pity on her and taught her self defense. Later they fell for each other and even had a kiss scene. Yoyo said that it was super awkward. "The scene took several takes. That night was very cold. We shot as our noses ran. It was very memorable! During the shoot everyone were embarrassed. Maybe we were too familiar with each other, our mouths were all stiff! I tried to talk my way out, my character was so reserved, would she need to give a kiss? Yet the more I thought about it the kiss was needed. Our characters reached a point in their relationship, which gave her the motivate for revenge later."
