Ronald Cheng Chung Kei and Mark Wu Yiu Fai in the new film UNDERCOVER DUET (MAN LUNG DUT GWING) used every trick in the book for laughs. In one scene, Ronald had to feed medicine to Wu Yiu Fai by spitting it directing into his mouth. Ronald joked that this scene was just like a wuxia film. "In wuxia films often a friend would be poisoned and faint, then you had to chew up the medicine to feed it to him. This scene is just like that!"

Ronald said that the most difficult part of this scene was how precise he had to be with the spitting, otherwise a bad take would be very troublesome. Ronald said, "Before the shoot I was pretty anxious. (Did you ask your wife to help with the spot?) No, instead I used a paper cup to practice. I was afraid that I would miss, then I would have to do it again. However, during rehearsal I nailed it every time, but during the actual shoot I had to shoot it twice. With the second time I couldn't miss because before I had a big pile of lines to deliver. I couldn't have another bad take. I was afraid that Wan Kwong couldn't hold back his laughter, so I had to nail it ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Eddie Cheung Siu Fai and Xu Jiao starred new film STRANGE HOUSE revolves around the ancient art of seance. The location of the film was an old house with several hundred years of history, the Shanxi Huang Cheng Xiang Fu that had many mysterious stories itself. Although it was a famous tourist attraction, Cheung Siu Fai joked that he felt the chills during the shoot.

Speaking of his two horror films being released in a row in the Mainland, Cheung Siu Fai joked that he did not "quit the police to join the ghost". He admitted he took the role because of the script. "TWILIGHT ONLINE's director (Maggie) To Yuk Ching tailored this script for me. Although my character was still a cop, he had schizophrenia. I have never played that role so I was attracted. (Danny) Pang Fat couldn't be any better with horror films. We once made a promise to work together on a thriller for a challenge. STRANGE HOUSE fulfilled my dream."

The Carrie Ng Ka Lai directed film KNOCK KNOCK WHO'S THERE? (YAU HAT DOH) will open soon. Earlier she and one of the lead actresses Kate Tsui Tsz Shan were interviewed. Why did she direct a ghost film? She said, "I want something unexpected. Actually the film has three stories with love, family and friendship, they are only packaged with ghost stories."

Actually Sister Ka Lai was also afraid of ghost, but the more afraid some people were of something the more they wanted to do it. She said, "Actually the shoot wasn't scary at all because the set had many workers. Post production was constantly in a room without any light, but still workers were on hand so I wasn't scared either. The most afraid was when I went to the bathroom by myself." In the film, she invited Tsz Shan to play one of the stories are retribution. She hoped that no one would randomly catch stray cats to abuse. As a veteran actress with decades of acting, Sister Ka Lai had no difficulty with directing. Because she knew a lot, she could easily resolve problems. Yet for some post production work that actors did not need to be in touch with like editing, she had to put in more effort. Will she direct again? She admitted that she will.

Tsz Shan in the film played a girl who worked with joss paper ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
