The film DRAGON TATTOO (GAU LUNG BUK BAI) two nights ago held a production wrap banquet. Boss Raymond Wong Pak Ming again gave away big lai see. Leads Max Zhang Jin, Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Endy Chow Kwok Yin and others posed for photos with the team. Zhang Jin stated that it was the first time that he went to a street stall. "Normally I would go to coffee shops and markets, but it really is the first time I am at such a large Hong Kong style street stall. It's very authentic and very interesting."

At the banquet, Zhang Jin also revealed that this shoot felt particularly long. Usually they shot for 16 hours daily everyday, so he and the team were especially close. Zhang Jin went to every table to toast the team and pose for photos. Playing a cop in a movie for the first time, Chow Kwok Yin also would miss everyone very much. "Just I began to build a relationship with the character Chow Mo the production wrapped. I sincerely thank everyone for these few months, the director team, equipment team, lighting team, hair and costume and others that kept battling on. Chow Mo already misses everyone very much! I think I have post production depression!"

Another lead Cheng Ka Wing also gave special thanks to the team for their care in Macau. When he saw boss Wong Pak Ming's granddaughter, Cheng Ka Wing first observed. Then when he saw that she would ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Louis Koo Tin Lok, Sean Lau Ching Wan and Philip Keung Ho Man starred in the science fiction film VIRTUS (MING YUT JIN GEI), which officially began production. The film's production cost will be over HK$ 300 million. Koo and Lau in the film will team up to battle aliens and save the Earth. Goo Jai said, "Asia has few science fiction films like this. I hope through this production I will prove that Hong Kong can make a large scale science fiction film." He even revealed that the set in the opening took over two and a half month to build.

Ching Wan also admitted that he rarely participated in science fiction films. "This time the Earth will be on the edge of death, the feeling will be much heavier." Speaking of the numerous action scenes with Goo Jai, Ching Wan said, "I have mechanical equipment to fight aliens and large robots."

The armor car driver Hak Jai said, "I look forward to make up the most, because I have to play an one eyed driver."

New actors Kevin Chu Kam Yin, Ng Siu Hin and Tony Wu Tsz Tung will participate in the same film for the first time and even be able to work with many elder actors. Thus they were very excited at the production start and even hoped that they would leave good impressions with the elders.

BabyJohn Choi Hong Yik yesterday promoted his first lead role in a film, VAMPIRE CLEAN UP DEPARTMENT (GAU GEUNG CHING DOH FU). In it he and Chin Siu Ho kept fighting vampires. In his first action film he got bruises all over. Luckily he was fine.

He said, "At first I was very afraid of hurting someone. Luckily Siu Ho was a great teacher. The martial art director advised me not to be afraid to ht, but felt that the fight scene was harder than dancing." He had his share of wire scene. He stated, "It was very tough, I had a personal stunt coordinator to help me with the safety harness. It was a lot like He-He, but whatever, he had to ensure that when I went up I wouldn't be hurt. Yet during the shoot with the slight pull I would feel it. I toughed out the pain and finished quickly. The important area wasn't hurt."

BabyJohn on Valentine's Day yesterday prepared a gift for his wife. Because they did not like to the Valentine's Day dinner, they stayed home and cooked. He said, "Originally I thought I would have to work on Valentine's Day, luckily we finished a day early and I was able to spend it with the old lady. Earlier I was so busy that I had no idea when I would be home. Luckily our relationship wasn't affected. The old lady was great, each time I went home I would see the soup that she has prepared for me. It was very heart warming."

Sammi Cheng Sau Man in the film LOVE CONTRACTUALLY (HUP YEUK NAM NUI) played a female CEO who chose the courier Joseph Chang Hsiao-Chuan to be a sperm donor. After working with many Hong Kong gods, how did she feel about working with a Taiwan god like Chang Hsiao-Chuan? Sammi said, "I feel everyone has a different personality. With every co-star, I not only got to know them but also discovered a fresh me with different performance. Hsiao-Chuan was very kind, warmed up slowly, but this wasn't a problem. It wasn't like passion as soon as we met would be better, we could get to know each other slowly." However Sammi still made fun of Hsiao-Chuan to be able to receive the "slowest to warm up award". Then she thought of another co-star Tony Leung Chiu Wai. They also had to wait until the production wrap to have something to talk about. Hsiao-Chuan was not the slowest!

The film examined the sperm donation subject. Did Chang Hsiao-Chuan and Sammi agree with this method? Hsiao-Chuan liked children. He said, "I feel it's very hard to say whether this works or not, it's a very personal matter. Everyone has their own ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Esther Kwan (關詠荷) attended an event at Tseung Kwan O and demostrated Tai Ji to the elderlies personally. The host, Louis Yuen (阮兆祥) then cracked many jokes and it made the whole atmosphere very lively.

Esther said during an interview: "Hopefully we can be healthy again during Rooster Year after this event. I stay at home during Lunar New Year as I hurt my waist and get a cold after nearly recovering. It turns out that the virus attack the weakest part and hurt my waist as a result."

When mentioned about she failed to inform her husband, Nick Cheung (張家輝) as he was shooting new film in overseas, Esther said: "I only know it when he returns. (Your old injury?) I was hospitalised for 3 days last year and the doctor told me to move slowly. I am impatient and must learn to do it slowly. (Your daughter resembles you?) She does it slowly but I always tell her to do it quickly. I will not rush her this time."

When mentioned about the audiences called her as "Chu So Ngo" during the event, Esther replied it depended on destiny and she wished to have a breakthrough in the script and role character: "I need to treat myself as newcomer if filming series again as it has been many years since I film it. (Do they look for you?) Nope. Anyway, I am not free for the next few months as Nick will be filming new movie and I will look after the family. (Does he mind you film series again?) We can have a discussion."

image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg     Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Him Law (羅仲謙) seldom see each other since married last year and he gave her a giant flower board when she filmed the stage play in Shanghai earlier. However, Him Law works in overseas again during Lunar New Year and Tavia meets up with some friends to kill time.

A few days ago around 2pm, Tavia left her apartment in Tai Po and drove to a private property in Tseung Kwan O. She parked her car at the carpark and carried many stuff to the lift lobby. Tavia stayed for 15 minutes and left after meeting her manager. She also waved to the reporters upon discovering them.

On a separate day, Tavia had high tea with her good friend, Ron Ng (吳卓羲) and his manager and Ron helped her to carry the stuff since Him was absent. Around 3 plus in the same afternoon, they walked out from the hotel together and Tavia told Ron to move a box of heavy stuff as if she was the instructor. Ron ensured it was placed safely and smiled at her before driving off. Ron is indeed a gentleman.
