Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Rex Tso Sing Yu, Jeannie Chan, Mark Lui Chung Tak and his wife, Sherman Chung Shu Man and Skye Chan two nights ago attended a smart phone press conference. Ka Fai rarely appeared in public recently. He revealed that he was working on a crime action flm that he will direct and star in. He even participated in the script, so the screen writers would be able to understand the action format that he wanted. He also hoped the pace would be faster and more detailed, not as exaggerated as blowing up a building. The action sequence had to be rich enough. Ka Fa pointed out that the film has been scheduled for a mid January production start. He could only say that the cast will have Mainland and Hong Kong actors. He sad that he has already signed them. Although his writing has not been great, he could not write some visuals and the actors did not understand them. However everyone trusted him and after auditions they also signed contracts. Did he call in any favor? Ka Fa seriously said, "You shouldn't call in any favor for anything because you shouldn't treat friends like that. The most important is whether the characters are suitable. If you just randomly asked friends to say a few lines on camera, if they got nothing to take with them then you owed the actors!" ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Artiste Bobby Au Yeung went to Taiwan to film the travel programme "Spirits on Vacation" with the cast members of the series "House of Spirits". Bobby frankly said that he never experienced having a series that was so popular that a travel programme was filmed. It was a rare opportunity, so they had fun. Having the cast members free up their schedules was also not easy. He said, "For the entire 14 days, I filmed ten days. Bob Cheung had to return to Hong Kong to film a series in between because the series was wrapping up, so he had to go back. After completing filming, also had to immediately fly back to Taiwan. This time, the places we went were also suitable for people of all ages!" Regarding having cast members who are older on the trip, was it labourious to take care of them? He said, "Although Helena Law and Lau Kong are older, they are actually very active...do not really need to be taken care of. Lau Kong also played in the water with Joyce Tang. Actually, Lau Kong has a gentle appearance but is open on the inside!" Regarding what was the most memorable event, he expressed that it was teaching Helena to bowl. He said, "The lightest bowling was eight pounds, but Helena played with proper form!"
