Eric Tsang Chi Wai and Louis Yuen Siu Cheung yesterday attended a press conference. They introduced the cartoon character Peppa Pig. Chi Wai said that his grandson really liked this cartoon character. During Easter he will visit his grandson for some family fun. Has Chi Wai seen Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) after his release? He said that he has not had the chance, but later when he will head to work in Beijing he might visit him. He said that Chan now wants to work behind the scene.
Speaking of the Hong Kong Film Award in mid April, Chi Wai said that this year the Hong Kong film industry was very encouraging. He said that Peter Chan Ho Sun, Tsui Hark and Wong Jing deserved the credit because everyone thought that Hong Kong films at most would make around 200 to 300 million RMB box office. Yet Tsui Hark and Wong Jing were able to reach 800 to 900 million. He said, "In the past we worried that Hong Kong film workers don't know how to shoot Mainland subjects, but now it is like the 80s in full bloom with more creative space."
Who would Chi Wai pick for Best Actor and Best Actress? Chi Wai picked Sean Lau Ching Wan and Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin. He said that Ah Sa was an idol but was able to land this subject, her singer and actor difference could be seen. Because actors had to toss aside everything while singers had to keep their image in mind, he felt that Ah Sa not only had the cute Twins image but also jumped out of this frame.
