Teresa Mo Shun Kwan earlier was the first guest of the Emperor Group, the Hong Kong Beijing Exchange Association and others organized youth film training course, "Beijing Hong Kong Film Exchange". Sister Mo got along with the students. She encouraged students to take advantage of every chance to perform and revealed that she would like to perform an "older woman, young man" relationship with Mainland actor Hu Ge.
Speaking of Sister Mo's classic film ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL (GA YAU HEI SI), a student was able to recite her character's lines perfectly and the entire audience cracked up. Sister Mo said that the most important in comedy was rhythm and reaction, anything too early or too slow would affect the audience's spot for laughter.
She also urged students to take advantage of each opportunity to perform, because you would never know when your benefactor would appear. She cited an example and said that her TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY (WONG GUM FA) co-star Ling Man Lung, who got the chance only because Sister Mo by chance saw him as a supporting player in a play. In the play the 30 year old played a teenage student and was still very natural and memorable. Thus she recommended Ling Man Lung to the director to play her son.
After 40 years in the business, she only won Best Actress last year. However Sister Mo said that this was the right time. "If ten years ago I had to make TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY, my daughters weren't that old yet. I wouldn't be able to know how close a mother and her children could be; now I am a mother, I have this experience and am able to reach this type of feeling."
As for who she would like to work with, Sister Mo said that she would like to work with Mainland actor Hu Ge because he was handsome and a good actor. She also said that the Mainland had more and more good actors, who would thrive with local actors.
The Beijing Hong Kong Film Exchange would provide over 20 students the opportunity for an exchange in Beijing. Students would first participate in six film cultural exchange events in Hong Kong, different professionals from film cultural industry were invited to share their years of experience in film industry development. They would include director Alan Mak Siu Fai, Kearen Pang Sau Wai and others. Students would be able to learn about film productions, production and acting skills, then go to Beijing for a ten day exchange.
