It is a big challenge for Kathy Yuen (湯怡) and Ron Ng (吳卓羲) in their new film, Love is Blind, Hate Too (致命24小時). She usually acts as a good woman but plays a blind and scheming girl with sexy performances this time. As for Ron, he always plays a good and loyal man but becomes a villain.
As Kathy needed to wear nightwear in many scenes, she expressed it was her most daring performance since joining the industry and discussed with film director Patrick Kong (葉念琛) beforehand so as to build up trust: “I did full safety precautions and requested for site-clearing. As I play a blind woman and lack of rest at the set, my eyes become very dry and I need to control myself not to blink my eyes. I also request Poon Chan Leung (潘燦良) to beat me harder to achieve best effects. When removing makeup at home, I was shocked to see many red marks and scratches.”
Apparently, Kathy filmed this movie when she was single two years ago. As she is married to Maverick Mak (麥秋成), Kathy disclosed he was very understanding and looked forward to her performance: “We establish consensus and will not restrict our work. I am an actress and will not have any breakthrough if setting restrictions. I am an easy-going person and enjoy a blissful marriage in real life. Our stuff belong to each other.” Ron played Kathy’s husband in the film and wished to settle down in reality: “However, I need to focus on my career and earn more money first.”
In Love is Blind, Hate Too film, Ron acted as a good doctor on the surface but sold fake medicine to hurt people and cheated on his wife. He praised it was fun: “I need to take care of my image whenever acting as a cop. Initially, I assume it is a romance movie but turns out to be a thriller and it is fun to play a villain. I really wish to shoot thriller and disaster movies and try different challenges. I did play a big villain in the past. (Intimate scenes with Jeana Ho (何珮瑜)?) As an actor, I am usually reactive and follow film director’s instructions. I will refrain from touching her in other areas. (Worried about taking advantage of her?) Jeana and I have no misunderstanding. Haha. We have good communication.”
