The Media Asia film THE GUILLOTINES (HUET DIK JI) will be released on December 27. Yesterday the film held its first Asia press conference at Sky 100. Shawn Yue Man Lok, Huang Xiaoming, Jing Boran, Chris Lee Yuchun, producer Peter Chan Ho Sun, director Andrew Lau Wai Keung and boss Peter Lam Kin Ngok all attended. Ethan Juan (Yuen King Tin) due to military service was unable to attend but recorded a video to encourage everyone to work hard on the promotion. The event also arranged for his wax figure to make an appearance, which Lok Jai and Xiaoming had a little fun with.
Chan Ho Sun revealed that Lau Wai Keung actually guest starred in the role of Emperor Yongzhen. Originally he did not agree, then Lau Wai Keung after make up realized that he resembled the actual person very much. In particular the bags under their eyes were similar. So he immediately asked him not to use any skin treatment. Lau Wai Keung said, "Actually I didn't want to perform, but I was helpless. This was shot in the final two days. I called Liu Ye, Chen Daoming and either was able to make it. It was left up to me." Jing Boran also said that in the film Siu Tin slapped him seven times, but later Siu Tin was the one who cried and he instead had to console Siu Tin.
Later Xiaoming stated that Lau Wai Keung constantly scolded during the shoot, luckily he was not one of his targets. However he knew that he was not truly yelling at people. Actually he was everyone's leader in the film. As for the numerous action and explosion scenes, Xiaoming said, "I was very afraid, I had a lot of stunts that I had to work on myself. I couldn't use a double like before, so certain danger was involved. After getting used to that I was fine. (Were you heavily insured?) Right, I just know about that now. Thank you for reminding me. Next time I definitely will buy the policy first. I don't know if the company bought any." Would he ask his rumored girlfriend AngelaBaby to support him? Xiaoming suddenly used Andy Lau Tak Wa's special ability and told everyone to be a little nicer. Actually he did not know that he was known for saying that. As for Baby's cosmetic surgery rumor, Xiaoming supported her despite the workers' effort to shield him. "Impossible. (You seem so certain because you see her everyday or you have touched her?) Haha, this question is too hard to answer. Ultimately she absolutely has not."
As for Lok Jai he has worked with Lau Wai Keung for ten years. He joked that he learned long ago how to dodge the moment when he was yelling at someone. Others had to learn for themselves. However actually Lau Wai Keung often used him as a shield, pretending to yell at him but actually was yelling at other people. Lok Jai said, "I understand that this movie has so many dangerous scenes that made him nervous, but this time I was able to work with Chan Ho Sun and Lau Wai Keung I considered it truly a wish fulfilled." Speaking of all the handsome men in the film, did they compete to see who was the most handsome at the studio? Lok Jai said no. Instead when the team asked whether he would shave his head he immediately agreed. If he had to wear a wig everyday it truly would have killed him.
