Andy Lau Tak Wa is working on a movie in Beijing. Two days ago after work, Wa Jai was very happy to learn that A SIMPLE LIFE (TOH JEH) was nominated for the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor. He said, "Having the voters' liking, having so much already, I really don't know what more I can say aside from knowing that I should say several more thank you, thank you, thank you......I don't dare to have expectation, but I would look forward to the film professional event of Hong Kong Film Award. Hail to Hong Kong Film! Hail! Hail! Long Live Hong Kong Film!"
Roger who in real life spent his life with Sister Tao was a film producer who industry insiders were familiar with. A SIMPLE LIFE due to Roger's profession and story requirements arranged for a scene in which Roger brought his beloved Sister tao to attend his film premiere. On the day of the shoot, Andrew Lau Wai Keung, Stanley Kwan Kam Peng, Joe Cheung Tung Cho, Lam Ka Tung, Angelababy, Mainland director Ning Hao and others participated for free and played themselves. Even the retired Raymond Chow Man Wai came to participate, which touched Ann Hui On Wa and Wa Jai very much. This time was also the only time Sister Tao attended a premiere with her young master Roger, which opened her eyes. Playing Sister Tao Sister Deanie that day went to an old fashioned beauty salon for an old fashioned hairstyle and manicure. Wa Jai praised, "You are very pretty!" Sister Deanie could not be more pleased.
That day Ip Tak Han was also very happy to reunite with her ENJOY YOURSELF TONIGHT friend Helena Law Lan. In the film Sister Law Lan played Sister Tao's idol. On the set they often talked about the joy of their previous collaborations. Wa Jai gave a special thanks to Chow Man Wai. He said, "All along Mr. Chow has taken great care of me. When a company co-worker asked whether he was interested in guest starring, he not only agreed right away but also brought his wife and daughter along. He was also the earliest on the set." Wa Jai pointed out that Mr. Chow usually went to bed very early, but he would rather sleep a few hours later so he would be able to work at night with everyone.
During the official shoot, Lau Wai Keung even added lines himself. He introduced his female companion Baby as his girlfriend to Wa Jai. Baby pointed out that this performance was like a cheerful party, being able to have a chance to work with a group of elders and directors was very rare. She never thought about her role or her lines, even if she just passed by she did not mind. The most important was the chance to support Hong Kong film like everyone else.
