Selena Li was shocked upon learning that moses chan had put on 20 pounds
Both Selena Li and Kevin Cheng admitted that their Chinese standard was poor.
Yesterday, Selena Li, Moses Chan, Kevin Cheng and Lily Ho were filming TVB ancient drama [Beyond the Realm of Conscience]. Moses, who was always been recognised as a handsome man, suddenly lost his good figure, grew into quite fat and his butt turned into a “Ho Wah Tuen”. He explained that to play the character of the emperor, he did not regret putting on 20 pounds: “To give people a fuller feeling, so I had to put on weight, from my original 180 pounds weight to my current 200 pounds weight. In my whole life this is the time that I’m the fattest , everyone is shocked by my figure. (Advertisers weren’t unhappy?) No! When I wear a (western) suit, people won’t be able to tell the difference.
Selena Li, who raised up overseas since childhood, expressed that she was tested by the dialogues of the scripts, she said: “Normally, when I read scripts, I understand 70% of it, but this time, I only understand 30%… When I was in Primary One, I immigrated to Canada and thus my Chinese standard is only that of a primary one. Now, I am working very hard, and I already have the level of a Primary Two. I remember that the first time I read scripts, I didn’t know a lot of words, so I went home to ask my family members, but it turned out that no one in my family could read Chinese.” Kevin Cheng also admitted that this time, the dialogues are very deep and he had to rely on the director to explain it to him.
