The Sandra Ng Kwan Yu and Chin Kar Lok host CLUB SPARKLE (SING SING TUNG HOK WUI) yesterday held a taping with guests Cecilia Yip Tung, Anita Yuen Wing Yi and Law Lan. Sister Law Lan due to discomfort arrived later.
Yesterday's topic was Best Actress. Yip Tung spoke of the hard times for Best Actress, who only looked glorious superficially. Yesterday she dressed up but actually she spent 3 hours on make up and hair. She also said that many thought Best Actress would get a raise. Actually an award in Hong Kong did not represent increased workload and fame, only international prizes would help with fame. However, the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress was a recognition.
A magazine reported that Kwan Yu made ON HIS MAJESTY'S SERVICE (DAI NOI MUK TAM LING LING GAU) for as much as 500,000 a day, thus she was willing to play ugly. She laughed. "A magazine wrote that! You can't believe everything written in a magazine." Reporters jokingly asked whether the actual figure exceeded the amount, Kwan Yu cracked up, "Let's talk about something else, I don't want the tax department after me. In the end it's reasonable! Filmmaking is not necessarily about money."
As for playing ugly in the film, Kwan Yu expressed that she played ugly in every movie. In addition this film was like a cartoon. She said,"Who hasn't had sausage lips? These summer films are for fun, it's OK to be crazy." She joked that her daughter loved watching her in disguise. Her daughter has seen ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2009 (GA YAU HEI SI 2009) almost 100 times. Her favorite scenes were of her falling and growing facial hair.
