Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Juno Mak Chun Lun and Irene Wan Bik Ha yesterday attended the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival 2013 press conference. This year's opening film will be the Benny Chan Muk Sing directed, Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Louis Koo Tin Lok and Sean Lau Ching Wan starred film THE WHITE STORM (SO DUK). Juno's directing debut RIGOR MORTIS (GEUNG SI) will vie for "New Talent Award" with BENDS (GOR GAI)'s Flora Lau Man Wan and FISH STORY (JI FEI YU)'s Wong Siu Pong.
Cheung Ka Fai on the stage made fun of THE WHITE STORM's boss Daneil Lam Siu Ming for having a second spring. Lam Siu Ming asked Ka Fai if he witnessed it? Ka Fai pointed out that he learned about it from publications. Ka Fai revealed that while shooting in Thailand he was hanging off a cliff on wires. After the shoot, Goo Jai and Ching Wan perhaps were frightened. Goo Jai brought him beer while Ching Wan brought him a cigarette. He joked, "Actually I didn't need anything, but seeing how they were I thought they were very funny and very cute. My heart was warmed as well." He joked that he needed to have more money. They might have chance to compete for the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor next year. When asked to yield to Goo Jai and Ching Wan, Ka Fai felt that would be disrespectful and said that they had no chance.
BOUNDLESS: JOHNNIE FILM'S FILM WORLD and the Irene Wan Bik Ha invested and starred MAY WE CHAT (MEI GAU SIU NUI) will also be screened at the film festival. Wan Bik Ha praised the new actress who played her on screen daughter as professional. Even though she did not know how to smoke she kept inhaling and exhaling until she was dizzy and nauseous; looking back when she made her first film LONELY FIFTEEN (LAN MUI JAI), she had no idea what acting was either and was rather dorky.
