November 13 was Huang Xiaoming's birthday. This year he not only cut a birthday cake with THE GUILLOTINES (HUET DIK JI) director Andrew Lau Wai Keung but also received a very valuable and unique birthday present. His wax figure in THE GUILLOTINES costume was officially unveiled as he became the first Mainland male artist to be on display in Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. After seeing the wax figure, he excitedly said, "It truly bares too much resemblance, like a twin brother." He even made a grand birthday wish, "THE GUILLOTINES makes 700 to 800 million at the box office!"
Earlier, Madame Tussaud Hong Kong sent high ranking sculptor John Cormican from London to the Mainland and measured Huang Xiaoming for seven hours. He said, "That day I didn't have breakfast as I was afraid to mess up the measurement. I was afraid to even take a drink of water." He even joked that he suffered this time because the karma from THE MESSAGE has arrived.
During the measurement, Huang Xiaoming often picked up an "eyeball" to scare people. He joked, "If I am too busy later, I have to rely on the wax figure." He also said that playing the character was like taking drugs. He said, "Before a major scene, I got drunk or locked myself in a room to scream and punch for emotional release."
