Maggie Cheung Man Yuk yesterday attended the Golden Horse Film Festival's Encounters with the Masters CENTER STAGE forum. When viewers asked about her next film, she said that she no longer had a dream and wanted to first learn to be human. Cheung Man Yuk acted from age 18 to 35, she joked that she had no idea who Cheung Man Yuk was. Thus she would first play herself well.

Cheung Man Yuk looked back at an actor's life, which was life on the set. She never came in contact with industry outsiders. Even if she crossed someone, she would be spared because she was a big star. "I am already 49, I am truly living life. When I cross someone I would see people's displeasure." She was interested in editing. Someone recommended her to edit Hou Hsiao-Hsien's THE ASSASSIN. "If I receive a Golden Horse Award like this, I would cry."

Back then because Anita Mui Yim Fong was unwilling to work on CENTER STAGE in the Mainland, the chance fell to her. Cheung Man Yuk said that she had to thank Mui Yim Fong. "If I didn't make CENTER STAGE, my road would be different too. With COMRADES ALMOST A LOVE STORY (TIM MUK MUK) Faye Wong turned it down so (Peter) Chan Ho Sun approached me. Whenever I performed under these situations I won (Best Actress)."

The 50th Golden Horse Award will take place in Taipei tomorrow. This year the Best Actor competition included THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI)'s Tony Leung Chiu Wai, UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN)'s Nick Cheung Ka Fai, COLD WAR (HONG JIN)'s Tony Leung Ka Fai, STRAY DOGS' Lee Kang-sang and SOUL'S Jimmy Wang Yu. So far Leung Chiu Wai is the favorite. As for Best Actress, a famous Taiwan tarot card reader claimed that Zhang Ziyi had 95% chance to win, Shu Qi had 90% and Kwai Lun-Mei only had 70%!

Kay Tse On Kay, Terry Robin Kwan two nights ago appeared at a Golden Horse Award event. Tse On Kay pointed out that she was a film industry new comer, her character in the film DOOMSDAY.PARTY (MOOT YUT PAI DUI) was a challenge.

Two days ago the Golden Horse committee reportedly suggested asking Leung Chiu Wai, Carina Lau Ka Ling and Cheung Man Yuk to present an award together, which upset Wai Jai so much that he cancelled his Golden Horse trip.
