Cherry Ngan Cheuk Ling in the new film CHERRY RETURNS (NA NIN HA TIN NE HUI LIU NA LUI) played a tragic girl who was kidnapped in the U.S. held captive for 12 years and was sexually violated. She in order to grasp her character not only read related books for research but also even deliberately locked herself in a small room alone and experienced the feeling of being held captive. Playing a cop n the film, Gordon Lam Ka Tung could not help but said, "Before working she often hid, when the director yelled action we had no idea where she was. She truly was very hard to find."
Having always played happy and energetic young character, Ngan Cheuk Ling agreed that this time indeed was a very rare experience. She said, "Not many directors would help you with a breakthrough. Most would feel you are a type based on your previous image. Now I can explore another route, I hope everyone can see I have even more space for performance."
Ka Tung also praised Ngan Cheuk Ling's performance in the film as OK and stated that he began to notice her work since the film THE WAY WE DANCE (KONG MO PAI). He felt that she has always had changes and put an effort into her work. He said, "Of course I noticed, I have to stock up while the price is low. What would I do when her price goes up!"
