All it takes for a veteran actor like Andy Lau (劉德華) was just one take to do a violent scene where he was trapped in a car, blood all over his face and shirt.
Filming has secretly begun for The Storm <風暴> in Hong Kong for nearly a month. Produced by Andy, the film also stars popular mainland Chinese actors, Hu Jun (胡軍) and Chen Yao (姚晨).
At the location, the first scene involved Hiro Hayama (葉山豪) holding a gun to a hostage, portrayed by Bonnie Sin (冼色麗). Next up was Andy. With his face and shirt marked with blood, he climbed into the smashed vehicle. He looked to be in great pain and was calling out for help. Policemen, played by Vincent Sze (施祖男) and Kenny Wong (黃德斌) pried the door of the car open and rescued the injured Andy.
Andy took a look at the playback and was so satisfied with himself that he did not request for a second take.
Andy displayed a great amount of professionalism in front of a huge crowd which not only was made up of the large number of crew members, but also onlookers who were attracted to the great wreckage.
Andy was so immersed in his role that he seemed not to notice the crowd around him. Even when he was watching the playback of the scene, he was not at all distracted by the onlookers.
After making sure that his scene was well completed, Andy walked calmly and quickly into a nearby shopping mall, surrounded and protected by his fans, and removed all his gory makeup. Not only is Andy a conscientious actor, he is also a conscientious father. Andy was fast to remove the blood on his face to rush home to spend time with his wife and 6-month-old daughter.
