Irene Wan Bik Ha two nights ago attended her film 72 MARTYRS (YING HUNG DIP HUET)'s premiere. Aside from the director Derek Chiu Sung Kei, Irene's husband and sister also attended. Did Irene's adopted son come? She said, "He wouldn't understand it." Irene said that after watching the film once many memories came back to her. Because her father was a soldier they used to live in Tiu Keng Leng, where residents were all former Kuomintang soldiers. When they arrived no one had anything and had to start over. She said when she was little she has heard many stories, like her mother used to have a great life but after the war she lost everything.
Irene said that this year is the 100th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution, she thought being able to make this film was very meaningful. She said the scene in which Tse Kwan Ho retrieved the corpses was very touching. Would she be more selective with her roles? She said, "I hoped to be able to make movies with depth, with emotional scenes that would be hard to forget." She revealed that later she will have a chance to work with Donnie Yen Chi Tan on a new film. She might have action performance. Would she asked Chi Tan for action training? She honestly said that she would if the need would arise, she has worked on the wire and action scenes before.
