Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) has been training to make himself fit for TVB new drama, Assassin (殺手) and travelled to Taiwan for location shooting with the team for 3 weeks on 26th October 2018. When asked if he gained any muscles, he said: “Yes, slightly. I will be topless in some scenes and it is considered a big mission in my life. It is my first time since joining showbiz for 30 years and I treat it as a “deadly” mission. Thank you to Moses Chan (陳豪) for giving me fitness tips and advising me not to drink water 2 days before the shooting, in order to make the muscles obvious. I realise it is not easy for the bodybuilders in the competitions and the uncles from Korea are very fit and could even enter into local market.”

Mentioning that he went for acupuncture due to his injury earlier, Wayne explained he had insufficient warm up exercises which caused muscle infection: “This drama gives me a deep memory as I need to remove my top and it has many action scenes. I also take a photo for memory. (Think carefully before accepting it next time?) Yes. Honestly, it is my last time as I am getting old and it is very suffering. I definitely cannot withstand it after a few years later. (Your wife loves your muscular body?) Yes, very much.”
