The film THE LEGEND OF THE NAGA PEARL will be released Thursday. Darren Wang played a smart thief with his pet. He teamed up with the Zhang Tianai played constable and the Sheng Guansen played naive prince to fight over the Naga Pearl with the Simon Yam Tat Wa played villain.

To perform more convincingly, Darren Wang studied with veteran action director Ku Huan-Chiu. Darren Wang said, "My character is a sweet talking thief, unlike me at all. I am very responsible!" Darren Wang's character was an orphan, because his right palm would emit light he became a monster. His only friend was his pet, which was a post production "computer generated actor". During the shoot Darren Wang had to act with the air. No wonder he said, "Movement, looks, expressions and dialogue coordination has to be perfect. It is as difficult as wire work and action scenes."

Pakho Chau in the new film THE SINKING CITY: CAPSULE ODYSSEY (SAI FONG GIK LOK: TAI BAU TAI JI TAI HUNG CHONG) had kiss scenes with both Shiga Lin and Ava Liu (Yu Kiu). He might seem to be lucky but he said that the kisses were very different. His kiss with Yu Kiu in a phone booth during the rain was a salute to a certain classic film, but his passionate kiss with Shiga was salty. He said, "In the scene I was having rice noodle, she came back and cried. At the time I had a spring roll in my mouth, her tears were salty too. So the entire scene was very salty!"

In the film he could only afford to live in a spot as big as a space capsule. Pakho said that he would not be able to accept that in real life. "In the scene the space capsule was enlarged, the real one would be even smaller! If I have to live there I would be very uncomfortable because I am claustrophobic. I can't even be in an elevator for too long."

Chin Siu Ho and his son Andrew Pong Kingfung two nights ago attended the charity premiere of BIO RAIDERS (SUN FA JEUK SI). Speaking of the father and son pair's first film, Siu Ho said that it had two firsts, he was the executive producer for the first time and it was his first film with Kingfung.

Siu Ho admitted that when Kingfung was little they did not have much contact and were a little estranged, but after making this film they became much closer. Recently he heard his son called him Daddy, he was so happy that he was shaking. He said that he has never gone on vacation with Kingfung. Earlier when they promoted in Beijing, they had the rare occasion to turn work into play. He said, "In my mind he still is a kid, in the brink of an eye he is already 27. He is much more mature. Later we will promote in Singapore and Malaysia, then we can go on vacation together again."

When Kingfung learned that Siu Ho was shaking when he was called Daddy, Kingfung joked, "Really? I am very happy to work with Daddy too. When I was little I thought about whether I would have a chance to work together as father and son, but I thought I would work with Uncle Chin Kar Lok. I would never imagine that I would be able to act with Daddy ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Grace Lam Nga Sze, Yu Chiu Chung Yu and Derek Wong Kin Tung yesterday attended a costume fitting for their new film (BAK BIN SUN TAM). Grace played a foolish cop who went undercover in an arms smuggling group. Her character had over 30 costumes, including cosplay and sexy ones. In addition she also had to perform a drifting stunt. Grace worried about injuries from the dangerous scene. As for the earlier "robbery" incident in Malaysia, she said that it has come to an end. In the future she will also go there again for work.

Yu in the film played Grace's sister, who also investigated the case. THe former said that she has played an uniformed officer before. This time she even had to sit next to Grace during the drifting. Yu said that she did not have a license and felt that her fate was in her co-star's hand, thus she wanted the film company to increase her insurance policy. In addition, Yu also had to investigate the case in cosplay. "I leave the sexy ones to Grace. She is a goddess, I can play Gundam or a man." Yu in the film also had to silly. She said that in reality she looked smart but actually was very dumb. She often put the wrong school uniform on her child and has left the country with expired documents. Reporters joked that she did not look smart either. Yu helplessly laughed and said, "You see how smart I was in the first half of my life? I hope I can be in the second half of my life!"

The Alex Fong Lik Sun and Samantha Ko Hoi Ning starred new film yesterday released its trailer. In it Ko Ling on the streets of Causeway Bay slapped boyfriend Siu Fong 19 times while he was pleading on his knees. Referred to as "slave beast" Siu Fong said that everyone only saw the the surface, not when he whipped Ko Ling and when she beg on her knees on glass. As he continued to talk about his "glorious history", Ko Ling called and all the arrogance disappeared. "Concert tickets? I am going to get them now!" The audience learned that he actually was "comforting himself".

Ko Ling said that the "beast taming" scene was very stressful. "The director asked for it to be realistic, I had to look like I was hitting Siu Fong very hard. However having to slap him so many times, I really was afraid that I would hurt him. So I was more nervous than enjoying it! Finally one time my finger nail scratched his noses! I really was super sorry!" While in the film she was an expert of slapping people, in real life she should be an expert among experts? She said that she has never slapped anyone in real life. "So during rehearsal I would crack up, but I know I would have no chance for a bad take ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

I also need to jump on trampoline and it makes me feel dizzy. (Your role in A General, A Scholar and A Eunuch (超時空男臣) series receives praises from the netizens.) I feel elated and it is my first time to film fiery and domineering role character. What matters most is the audiences love it."

Asking if her boyfriend buys any medicated cream for her, Elaine says: "Nope. It is expected to have bruises after filming fighting scenes. (The ratings record?) I heard that the ratings for the debut is 26 pts when I am in Australia. It is considered okay and the reviews is not bad as well."

Relating to the comments that Paw Hee-ching (鮑起靜) looks too kind-hearted and does not look convincing when acting as triad boss, Joel says: "Her domineering character comes from her intelligence and not the real villain."
