Artist Cecilia So Lai Shan in the film HELL BANK PRESENTS: RUNNING GHOST (MING TUNG NGAN HONG DUT YEUK: FAN SUN JUNG BA JIN) played a medium. In the film a childhood accident caused her father's death, she as an adult kept using sorcery to find her late father. So Lai Shan admitted that she was afraid of the dark and ghosts. When abroad she definitely would share a room with someone. The most memorable part of this shoot for her was a morgue that was constructed at a certain studio in Yuen Long. She was so afraid that she did not dare to go to the bathroom. As soon as the cameras were cut she stuck to the director and next to the monitor.
She said, "These scenes would definitely be shot at night and without all the lights. As soon as the cameras were cut I ran to the monitor stand because it was the brightest! The rest of the time I would use a flashlight even when walking around. I didn't dare to go to the bathroom at all. We worked for 5 or 6 hours, everyone was very quiet and didn't dare to speak up. (Did your acting classes in the U.S. earlier come into use?) After making this film I realized I needed classes, but fortunately this film had comedic elements."
