The film BEAUTIFUL 2012 (MEI HO 2012) two nights ago held its premiere. The film consisted of four segments, one of which, MY WAY, was Ann Hui On Wa directed. Two nights ago Ann attended with actors Francis Ng Chun Yu and Jade Leung Jung.
Chun Yu and Leung Jung in MY played a couple, but Chun Yu finally decided to get a gender change operation. He admitted that this was the most difficult character in his career. In addition he only had one time to explore it since work began the next day, he could only utilize his decades of acting experience and hoped it would become his best acting work. Chun Yu admired Ann very much and joked that her previous film NIGHT AND FOG (TIN SHUI WAI DIK YUT YU YEH) should have asked him to play the deranged killer. However he still lost to Simon Yam Tat Wa even though salary was not an issue for him. He also hoped to work on some alternative characters, which were easily to leave a deep impression with people.
Leung Jung praised Chun Yu's portrayal of a transgender person. His every move was exactly like a woman's, he was more woman than her. During the shoot the director asked three transgenders to assist the
actors with their performance on the set. Leung Jung complimented them on their gentle ways and great skin. Chun Yu also joked, "No wonder your (on screen) husband wants a sex change."
