The Lu Chuan directed, Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho), Chang Chen, Liu Ye, Huo Siyan starred film THE LAST SUPPER (WONG DIK SING YIN) will be released officially in the Mainland on November 29, the same release date as Feng Xiaoming's new film 1942. THE LAST SUPPER gathered top male stars of three lands on both sides of the strait. Mainland star Huo Siyan as Lady Qi was the most perfect and the most touching face in the film according to the director. Lu Chuan even suggested for her to appear without make up and achieve the strict demand of "skin as smooth as a cooked egg that just has its shell removed".
In the film, Ng Yin Cho played Xiang Yu, Chang Chen played Han Xin, Liu Ye played Liu Bang, Lady Qi was Liu Bang's favorite concubine and a famous performer of early Western Han. In history, after Liu Bang's death, Lady Qi suffered at the hands of Lu Zhi as her limbs were chopped off and locked in the latrine to become the "human swine". Huo Siyan said, "The director suggested for my skin to be like a cooked egg that just has its shell removed. In comparison to my good friend Qin Lan who played Lui Zhi in the film and had to wear aged make up, we became two eggs in the director's mouth; one was the cooked egg that just has its shell removed, the other is the tea egg that just has its shell removed!"
Huo Siyan also for the first time removed most of her eyebrows to achieve the ancient beauty. She said, "Although I didn't wear any make up on my face, the time at the make up table wasn't discounted. I not only had to shape the brows but also the ancient hairstyle took at least two hours. I also had to hide the wig inside before the ancient woman hairstyle. The director didn't slack off at all in all the details."
