Currently shooting THE LION ROARS 2 (HOR TUNG SI HAU II) in Ningbo, Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi worked with the female Mainland star and Ron Ng Chuek Hei's rumored girlfriend Zhang Xinyu. Zhang Xinyu in the film even had to fight Pak Chi over her "husband" Xiao Shenyang. Zhang Xinyu honestly said that she has always liked Pak Chi very much. When she learned that she had scenes with her, she agreed to perform in LION.
Zhang Xinyu in the film did not have to be sexy but needed to dress androgynously. However she had sun burns from working under the blazing sun. Sometimes she even had to wear heavy and thick armors for a lot of martial art fight scenes. Without any martial art background she indeed had some difficulties. However luckily before the shoot Zhang Xinyu had some training and finally passed in the end. She even said that the fight scenes were not too hard. The hardest was treating her idol Pak Chi as a romantic rival, which made getting into her role very difficult.
Zhang Xinyu also said that on her free time she would watch Brigitte Lin (Lam Ching Ha)'s martial art films to study how to fight elegantly as she swore to kick away the title of "flower vase".
