Irene Wan Bik Ha, Kenny Kwan Chi Bun, Hanna Chan, Alice Chan Wai, Ashina Kwok Yik Sum, Jess Sum Cheuk Ying yesterday attended the film THE FALLEN (DOR LOK FA) production start ceremony. Going undercover in the film Wan Bik Ha and Kenny would develop an older woman younger man romance. They would also have daring love scenes. Wan Bik Ha said that she would not need to "prepare" her husband, as an actor as long as she ran into a good script she would have to release herself; Kenny was also able to make the sacrifice for art and would not mind following Tony Leung Chiu Wai's suit. In case he would not be able to accept it it could be cut out.

Wan Bik Ha would go undercover in the film and even became addicted to drugs later. She was very happy to receive a role with such good potential. Earlier she even lost 4 pounds to play the drug addict. Speaking of her love scenes with Kenny, she revealed, "After taking drugs hallucination would take place, so you might not know that you have done a lot of silly things. Some of which would be daring scenes, some would take place after taking drugs and some would happen normally. For now I don't know how far they would go. The most .....

Lam Fung brought heavy machine guns to the safe house to kill Sister Na, luckily Goo Jai arrived in time to protect her. The team built a safe house set for this scene, prepared several hundred bullets and shot for three full days to create the raining bullet effect!

The 38th Hong Kong Film Awards will take place soon. The event released a series of promotional videos, with Andy Lau Tak Wa appearing in a flash in the final chapter. The event invited people to share their Hong Kong film memories on camera. Lau Tak Wa appeared as the "prize presenter" and presented them with the Hong Kong Film Award so they could feel how heavy it was. They screamed at Wa Jai's surprise appearance and even received hugs of love. The funniest was when a young person said that he liked Wong Jing's PROJECT GUTENBERG (MO SEUNG) (actually it was Felix Chong Man Keung's). Wa Jai cracked up behind the camera. The young person finally politely thanked Wa Jai, "Thank you Uncle Lau!" Wa Jai gave a helpless look as a response. Wa Jai said that he has not interacted with the audience up close in a very long time. He said, "I was very touched, I hope Hong Kong film will continue to march on."

All the shows were almost sold out. Some viewers passionately screamed in anticipation of Ah Sa's Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress victory.

Ah Sa admitted that she really enjoyed making a movie in Hong Kong. "Ultimately I grew up here, whether the cafe or the streets big or small, the workers or the neighbors I ran into, they all filled me with a sense of familiarity!" Her friends also gave her positive reviews. Ah Sa said, "Joey, Ah Gil of course would praise it, but this time the feeling is a little different. I just talked with Joey over the phone. Actually she was nearby, she even asked if she needed to come over and do the audience appreciation with me!" She already turned down her good will. "She is so thoughtful, but Joey really like this movie!"

His shoulder and hip would have pain, as he often had to see Chinese bonesetters and have physical therapy. "Colleagues in stunt, lighting and cinematography would have problems. So I thought of opening a healthcare center. I will volunteer there then ask physical therapists to teach everyone basic ways to help others or use equipment to reduce pain. I hope this project will come to fruitition soon!"

Lau Wai Keung also revealed that he just finished the film CHINESE PILOT. Earlier the film shot on location in Lhasa, Tibet. Half of the crew had high altitude illness during the shoot. Luckily it did not happen to him and he was able to finish the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin, Ashina Kwok Yik Sum, Hedwig Tam Sin Yin and director Tsang Tsui Shan two nights ago attended THE LADY IMPROPER (FEI FUN SHOOK NUI) audience appreciation event. Ah Sa said that she has not disguised herself to watch the audience reaction but she has read online reviews and comments. She said, "Most were OK, actually they had very different comments. Ultimately each movie has people who like it and dislike it."

Ah Sa said that earlier at the premiere, she and lead actor Wu Kang-Jen sat together. When they got to their intimate scene they covered their eyes. She said, "No eyes see, it was very awkward. (How did your friends feel about the film?) They definitely support it, they even said that they kept from blinking to watch it." Ah Sa said that Kwok Yik Sum also had intimate scenes. Kwok Yik Sum said that luckily she had a wrap to cover yourself. "Because I was alone, hearing myself was very awkward. (What did you hear?) The 'breathing' sounds from acting."

In the film Ah Sa performed a pole dance. She pointed out that Tam Sin Yin's pole dance was even sexier than hers. Tam Sin Yin said, "Two different kind of sexy, they are sexually daring, I am choreographically daring." Ah Sa said that after finishing this film she would rather be sexy than working on another intimate scene. "Because some moves are scientific, basically they can't be done in real life. .....

Artiste Nancy Wu stepped into the movie industry last year, and has been nominated for 'Best New Performer' at the Hong Kong Film Awards (HKFA). She frankly said that, upon knowing about her nomination, the feeling was mystical: "Very happy to have an opportunity to be nominated. When I received the news, I was on the street. After hearing it, my mind flashed back to the important images of these ten-plus years of being in the industry. Very unimaginable".

When asked whether she was confident in winning the award, Nancy admitted that it was half and half: "Have to look at the direction of the judges. I am not a newcomer in the television industry, but it is my first movie in the movie industry. Have already greatly benefited from having a part in being nominated. Having a normal attitude toward whether I get it or not. (Have already thought about your winning speech?) Will also prepare it because [you] cannot lose face. Scared that my mind will go blank then. (What are your perceptions on the other competitors?) I have not seen all the other nominees' works, but Crisel Consunji also previously won awards at other movie awards ceremonies...very happy for her".

Have Been in the Industry for Ten-Plus Years, Have Never Made a Cameo

Nancy finds herself to be lucky. She was fortunate to have joined the movie industry and to have taken part in filming. Being nominated is an unexpected reward; everything is attributed to her partner, Francis Ng, whom she has collaborated with twice: "Initially, it was Francis who contacted me, and it just so happened that I had time in my schedule. Actually, I was just following him. Watched how he did it. He gave me a ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Justin Cheung Kin Sing and Kumer So San Yu yesterday attended a P STORM (P FUNG BO) audience appreciation event. The film made over HK$ 4 million over 3 days in Hong Kong and almost 300 million RMB in the Mainland. Cheung Kai Chung was rather happy to see the good performance. Aside from the premiere, two nights ago he went to see the movie with his wife and son. His son was so tense that he almost cried. Because in the film he was tortured and beaten up, his son asked if he was fine. Ah Chung said, "I told him I wasn't, you better hurry up and take a little better care of me!"

Ah Chung also said that in the past he rarely let his son watch his films, but now he would take him to see more Hong Kong films in hopes of cultivating his interest in music and art. He also wanted him to become interested in film. Would he permit his son to enter the business? Ah Chung said, "I would wait until he is drown to worry about that, now I just hope that he would know how hard the film production process is. I wanted to bring him to the set to be my assistant, at most I would give him the market minimum wage and see if he can take it with me. Actually I ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Although she lost out on the 'Supporting Actress' award, Selena, who stole the limelight in a neon dress, had an unexpected gain, and even cleared her bad reputation! She laughingly said, "Chose to attend in a neon dress. Very unexpectedly, there were many people praising my attire non-stop, and even won an unofficial 'Best Dressed Award'. The host was announcing it on stage; due to not knowing me, even called me the 'Highlighter Girl'. Everyone was talking about my dress...very flattered and very happy. Very surprised. Back then, the 'Nonsense Squad' sisters criticized my attire, and even said that they would burn my wardrobe. Wining this award this time, can finally clear my bad reputation. Ha ha".
