Actors Louis Koo Tin Lok and Miriam Yeung Chin Wa two nights ago attended the charity premiere of their Universe film LITTLE BIG MASTER (NG GOR SIU HAI DIK HAU JEUNG). The five child stars gave a very cute performance. Director Kwan Shun Fai said that the production had two great challenges. Aside from the five child actors was Goo Jai's singing in the film. Goo Jai also said that the hardest scene was singing. "It really is very memorable, everyone should come and watch." Chin Wa said that at the time she was ailing in bed when Goo Jai sang at her bedside. Her arms were shaking from holding back her laughter.
The film was touching and tear inducing. Was Chin Wa's eyes all swollen from crying during the shoot? She said, "I was all broken up from crying, it was very moving. The children performed very well, had great ability to comprehend. They were like adults. They were Best Actresses. Thank you (Benny) Chan Muk Sing, Kwan Shun Fai, boss (Daneil) Lam Siu Ming for giving me the chance to do something so meaningful."
Chin Wa also gave special thanks to the actors for covering for her. She said, "For the final scene, I thought one shot was lacking no matter what. Because I was very tired from crying for 18 hours, when I got home I still had it in mind. I called the director and asked if I could shoot it again. Then the next day I made it up, bothered a lot of people but no one complained. I am very honored to have worked with them." Koo Tin Lok and Chin Wa played a couple for the first time. Did Goo Jai like a wife like Chin Wa? He said, "I do, just take a look at how she laughs." Did he have any trouble with the children? He said, "No trouble." Chin Wa said, "They were very nice, as soon as they saw Goo Jai they hug him like five koala bears."
Director Kwan Shun Fai yesterday attended an advanced screening as a docent in Kowloon Bay. He said that this advanced screening was for the vision impaired. "Through visual description, they could enjoy the joy of movie watching. Earlier in the bathroom, a 50 or 60 year man said that it was his first movie, I was lucky to be their docent."
