Nicholas Tse Ting Fung, Shawn Yue Man Lok, Simon Yam Tat Wa and William Chan Wai Ting starred in the film AS THE LIGHT GOES OUT (GAU FOR YING HUNG). Yesterday a press conference was held at a Beijing fire house. The actors and director Derek Kwok Chi Kin appeared on fire trucks. Ting Fung and Lok Jai worked together again after 6 years and they admitted that their chemistry remained the same. At the press conference they chatted. Ting Fung humbly said that due to his asthma he was the worst physically among the cast. They used fire fighting tools to play games and finally they all lost.
Ting Fung on a rare occasion responded to every rumor. Ting Fung said about his grandmother's passing in Australia, "More or less I am affected, but I don't want my affairs to affect work. The family will present incense sticks together at the suitable moment. If I have time I may go to Australia." He revealed that early this year he visited her there. She has already been in a coma for years, but she actually opened her eyes to take a few glimpses at him. He thought it was a miracle. He said, "Of course I am not used to the passing of a relative, but the most important is to positively face it. (Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi was rumored to prohibit their sons to attend the funeral in Australia?) That didn't happen!"
As for Pak Chi taking their sons to study in Canada, and later due to her constantly traveling with them "truancy" was suspected. Ting Fung said, "I don't care about other people, I am already taking care of it very urgently." Ting Fung did not respond to Faye Wong and Li Yapeng's divorce, as for online suggestions of him getting back together with Faye Wong, he smiled and said, "I want to!"
Lok Jai and Yam Tat Wa said that they have suffered a lot for this film because they had many dangerous stunts. Lok Jai and Hu Jun were both injured. Luckily they had a doctor on the set; Brother Wa said that normally he worked out, otherwise he might not be able to physically handle this production.
Chan Wai Ting ran for over ten hours with an oxygen tanks on his back. How was his physical ability? He joked, "No, but with elders here I have to tough it out." Was Chan Wai Ting an embarrassment? Yam Tat Wa chimed in, "He was an embarrassment. He's great at dancing, but running is different."
