Jacky Heung Jor recently with the Johnnie To Kei Fung directed, Wai Ka Fai written inspirational romance CHASING DREAM (NG DIK KUEN WONG NAM YAU) won Canada's 24th Fantasia Film Festival Best Actor award. The jury praised him for "the absolutely beautiful embodiment of a flawed but timeless hero." Heung Jor won his first Best Actor award in his 14 year career. He was very grateful, thanking not only his family but also To Kei Fung and Wai Ka Fai for their attentive guidance.
Heung Jor in the film played a dream chasing fighter. For realistic To Kei Fung hired real MMA fighters to perform. Heung Jor during the shoot went to the hospital 6 times due to injuries, absolutely making blood and sweat contributions.
