The film THE BRINK (KONG SAU) two nights ago held its premiere. Actors Shawn Yue Man Lok, Max Zhang Jin, Gordon Lam Ka Tung and Cecilia So Lai Shan attended. In the film Lok Jai and Zhang Jin had fight scenes galore, from on land to under water. Lok Jai said that they spent a month in the water. Everyday he had to dive for ten hours and used up ten tanks of oxygen. Aside from using up a lot of energy, all the oxygen made his throat dry and lungs uncomfortable. Lok Jai in the film played a villain and had to dress like a fisherman. Everyday he first spent four hours on special effect make up. Aside from tattoos he also had to add freckles and scars. After work he also needed a hour to remove the make up. Thus he was the earliest actor to arrive and the latest to leave the set.
Zhang Jin also said that not only the under water scenes were tough, his storm scene on a boat with Lok Jai was just as bad. During the shoot the boat kept rocking. Lok Jai joked that originally they fought on the front of the boat, soon they would end up fighting on the back of the boat. Zhang Jin also said that there was no sense of direction. He would immediately grab whatever was around him. Zhang Jin injured his leg during the performance but because he had to keep going into the water his wound became pus filled. Everyday after work he had to clean his wound. Did Lok Jai let his girlfriend Sarah Wong watch his performance? Lok Jai said, "At the time I wasn't dating yet. Later I will take her to the movies!"
So Lai Shan admitted that this was her second film and the shoot was very comfortable. However in the film she played an unwed mother and played pregnant for the first time. In addition she had a lot of emotional scenes. Before the shoot she had to hide in a corner. Luckily her on screen adoptive father Zhang Jin comforted her and told her to relax with her performance. She also truly felt his fatherly concern.
