Huang Yi and Rose Chan Ka Hung yesterday attended the film WOMAN KNIGHT OF THE MIRROR LAKE costume unveiling ceremony. This exhibit will be on display until the 16th in 3D Gold Jewelry's Tsim Sha Tsui headquarter store. They even received a film still golden glitter card from the company's vice chair Tsui Chuen Shun (Cathy Tsui Chi Kei's father).
Huang Yi and Rose worked together again after THE LEGEND IS BORN: IP MAN (IP MAN CHIN JUEN). After two collaborations they became close like sisters. On the set they often chatted and trained together. Rose said, "In the film I played a mute, but after work I would become very noisy." Because other cast members like Wong Yau Nam were all young people, after work they would have hot pot casserole together and they had a lot of fun. Because Qiu Jin was both educated and well trained in martial art, Huang Yi had many fight scenes. Was she injured? She said, "Injuries basically took place everyday, but they were all minor. I don't have much to talk about them because I have to give to play a heroine."
Huang Yi also said that in the beginning of the shoot, she did not have too much understanding of the character of Qiu Jin. Yet after the shoot she could not help but admire her. In particular she and Rose both
broke down in tears at her execution scene. She said, "I thought she was very noble. This film is also worth children to learn from because children now all grow up in greenhouses and can't withstand any turbulence." What expectation did she have for the box office? She said that this time was not a commercial film. The investors made it based on a type of spirit and hoped everyone would support it greatly.
