The 4th Annual Asian Film Award two nights ago took place. Winners Wang Xueqi, Tse Ting Fung, Wai Ying Hung, Ng Ming Hui and director Lu Chuan accepted interview and talked about their experience. Tse Ting Fung with BODYGUARDS AND ASSASSINS won Best Supporting Actor. Wearing sunglasses, he stated that he did not sleep the night before. He was happy, but not so happy that he was not sleeping. He said that he has always had insomnia. Ting Fung expressed after the award he went home without celebrating. As for his wife Cheung Pak Chi's response, he said, "She didn't say anything, she was happy." Did Pak Chi give him a hug? He joked, "We hug with or without the prize." Did he show his award to his son? He said, "When I got back he was already asleep. This morning when he got up he touched the award, but he's too little to know what's going on." Ting Fung also said that actually in his wife's heart whether he won or not he still was the best.
Ting Fung expressed that online a friend reminded him that the awards and everything he did were for his son, to give the next generation a right path and guidance. Did he want to win the Hong Kong Film Award? He said, "I never really thought about it. Instead I was the happiest about Sister Siu Hung's award. At that moment I almost cried. Seeing her win, I was happier than when I won." Ting Fung pointed out that he has seen Sister Siu Hung's film since he was little. He also liked action films and felt that she was a strong action actress. For three seconds on camera she worked on the shoot for three weeks. With 30 years of scars she gave her life to the film industry, so he was truly very happy. Ting Fung expressed that he will work on Wong Jing's new film and his film jobs have been lined up until the middle of next year. Will he take time off to be with Pak Chi who is expecting in May? He said, "I will take a few days off. If not, my family wouldn't spare Brother Jing." Ting Fung expressed that they still have not named their unborn son yet but already has a few ideas. In addition, Yumiko Cheng Hei Yi was rumored to be involved in a fight in a Mainland night spot. Ting Fung said that he had no idea. Was he worried since he constantly worked in the Mainland? He said, "Have you caught me at a night spot? I haven't been for seven years."
Wang Xueqi expressed that he was very touched and excited to win a Hong Kong award. This award will be able to motivate him forward. He even said, "Hong Kong is too great, I love Hong Kong." Did he celebrate with Ting Fung? He joked, "Ting Fung vanished, went home to share. He loves his lover very much. I celebrated in bed." Wang Xueqi expressed that he will work with Chen Kaige. He said that both Chen Kaige and Zhang Yimou were good directors, their art quality was higher than before. He said, "Chen Kaige is more democratic than before, as he would listen to opinions. Maybe it's because he has experienced a lot of storms."
