Wayne Lai and Maggie Cheung were shooting yesterday morning at Yuen Long for new series Forensic Heroes III. The scene was about a fire that started while the two were investigating a case and found the criminal. However, they were kidnapped and locked into a steel sliding room. The criminal wanted to murder them by setting the place on fire. Fortunately, the police arrived on time to rescue them.
That day, Wayne and Maggie were trapped in the steel sliding room, burning and heating up for a day. This time they even got burned by the fire. Wayne joked: "So difficult! I truly chose the wrong series and I thought I'm just going to do some research in a forensic office building, but didn't know it would be like this"!
However, Wayne was just joking, of course he understands that the series will only be good to watch with some dangerous scenes.
For safety reasons, there were many fire extinguishers on the set and a special skilled team that would stop the fire once the director called out. Asked Wayne if he felt the scene was dangerous? He frankly said: "It's hard to say, no one knows about fire, can't guess it, but the technology is advanced now. (Is there a stunts double?) Nope! We want it to be dangerous! In fact, just a small scene that is a little dangerous, if there is a stunts double that came out, the effect wouldn't be as good. (Does your wife know your shooting such a dangerous scene?) Don't have to tell her, I've been working for so many years. If there is anything, I will tell the director that I can't do it, or just leave!"
Like the excitement
Also, the optimistic Maggie was asked if she's worried that there might be an accident that disfigured her? She said: "I'm not afraid, but rather I think it's exciting. The producer made this scene because he wants it to be good, like some people think hanging on wires is difficult, but I think it's fun. The most important is the scene comes out good, then the scene is valuable. I believe the special effects team did all the safety measures."
