Zhang Ziyi won the 50th Golden Horse Award Best Actress. After the ceremony she returned to Shanghai from Taiwan to participate in the shoot of John Woo (Ng Yu Sum)'s film THE CROSSING (TAI PING LUN). Ng Yu Sum led the team to celebrate with Zhang Ziyi as they presented her with flowers and cake. He praised that Ziyi was the pride of the entire team and a real good actress; everyone looked forward to her winning again with THE CROSSING.
Zhang Ziyi also suffered in THE CROSSING as the film still revealed. Zhang Ziyi struggled on a sinking ship and at sea for her survival. This ship sinking scene was shot for almost a week. Zhang Ziyi everyday spent an average of 5 hours in the water. Everyday after the shoot she would be so wet that water would pour out of her. Thus her on screen helplessness and full effort performance moved everyone. This film's Shanghai scenes will end in early December as the team will move to Taiwan to continue the shoot.
