Aarif Rahman (Lee Chi Ting) in the film COLD WAR (HONG JIN) played a righteous and ambitious Independent Commission Against Corruption high ranking senior investigator who questioned two Best Actors Tony Leung Ka Fai and Aaron Kwok Fu Sing. He even went to the police station to arrest Kwok Fu Sing. When police representatives Kwok Fu Sing and Leung Ka Fai were invited to the ICAC for "coffee", they began a war of words with Lee Chi Ting in the interrogation room. This time facing two Best Actors, Lee Chi Ting admitted that he was very nervous because as the investigator he must control the situation.
In order to establish the ICAC high ranking senior investigator's prestige, Lee Chi Ting while questioning two skilled and carefully thinking Best Actor had to stare at them for a long time. In the film he maintained his sharp looks. On the screen actually he relied on eye drops to keep his eyes spirited. He said that when the director first shot some facial close up scenes, the crew found the floor full of empty eye drop bottles. Everyone joked that if they did not catch them in time and moved them away, Lee Chi Ting would have ruined that one take. Aside from eye drops, he even prepared a lot of throat drops to handle the screaming scenes.
Lucky to be acting with Kwok Fu Sing and Leung Ka Fai, Lee Chi Ting had a joy that he could not describe. "Two Best Actors taught me a lot about acting. In order to perform even better and cultivate the emotion, I studied many series about the ICAC, printed all the lines and posted them all over my bed room. During rehearsal I would put on the sharp suit and stayed in for two days until I was satisfied with my own performance." He said, Mama and co-workers were a little worried during that time. Because he looked so serious, he kept people at bay.
