“Young and Dangerous: Reloaded” Criticized for Little Known Cast
When it was announced that Him Law (羅仲謙), Oscar Leung (梁烈唯), and Jazz Lam (林子善) were to star in the upcoming remake of the Young and Dangerous <古惑仔> film series, Hong Kong netizens slammed the film for having a “kelefe” cast, a Cantonese term for a film extra or someone who is of insignificant importance.
Oscar Leung is strongly against the new nickname, and said, “There is only grayness and blackness in the world of the Internet. They criticize everything, and they are unable to see the beauty of the real world. I am a very straightforward and forthright person. If they say we are kelefe, then that means that all extra actors deserve our respect! We cannot stop those who criticize us on the Internet, but their words do not affect us. Those who dislike us better not watch the film. After all, they will criticize the film whether or not they watch it. We want constructive criticism, not abuse.”
Oscar is Not the Best
As the biggest breakout star of 2012, and the winner of this year’s Most Improved Actor award, Oscar admitted that his confidence has grown immensely. “But confidence does not equate to arrogance,” Oscar said firmly. “All actors must be confidence in themselves, if not, how will they be able to act in front of so many people? Having confidence in myself does not mean that I am the best! When I am well-prepared and engrossed with my work, I discover chances of improvement, and that gives me confidence. Having confidence does not mean that I find improvement unnecessary.”
Oscar’s confidence was tested when he had to film a sex scene with two other actresses in a faintly lit alleyway for Young and Dangerous: Reloaded <古惑仔：江湖新秩序>. “I spend a lot of time trying to talk myself into doing it. The hardest thing to master [for the scene] was the expressions. It was a pretty busy street, and I had a lot of people looking at me!”
Jacqueline Chong Likes Kissing Women
In Young and Dangerous: Reloaded, Oscar portrays the gangster Chicken, while Jacqueline Chong portrays Lam Suk Fan, Chicken’s best friend. Although Fan is a lesbian, there is unresolved sexual tension between her and Chicken.
Jacqueline revealed that she gets to kiss several girls in the film, and said, “It was my first onscreen kiss. The feeling is quite good. I think it would be more awkward if I had to kiss a man! Kissing someone of the same sex is less embarrassing. I’ve kissed some of my female friends before, so it isn’t a hard thing to do.”
