Eliza Sam Injures Knee While Filming “Hot Madam”
Filming for new movie, Hot Madam <辣警霸王花> is currently well underway in Malaysia’s scorching heat. Directed by Wilson Chin (錢國偉), the female-oriented cast features Eliza Sam (岑麗香), Joyce Cheng (鄭欣宜), Cathryn Lee (李元玲), Wong Pui Man (王佩民), Jacky Choi (蔡潔), and Jeana Ho (何佩瑜). The group possesses professional work ethics and did not ask for stunt doubles despite their numerous action sequences. However, almost all the actresses suffered from at least one injury.
During a fight scene, Eliza Sam accidentally lost balance and plunged to the ground. She bumped her knees on the hard cement and was unable to stand up due to the severe pain. Eliza was immediately rushed to the hospital for an X-ray scan, and fortunately, she did not break any bones. Director Chin proved to be extremely caring towards the cast members and ensured Eliza’s knee was properly taken care of before she resumed filming.
Cathryn Lee, who is the junior apprentice of popular pianist, Li Yundi (李雲迪), earlier filmed a scene near a water dam. During the process, an oyster shell cut her thigh. Although her wound was bleeding, she continued to film and refused to take a break. Exhibiting a professional attitude, Cathryn chose not to cancel her followup scenes and quickly changed into her next set of clothes to carry on with her work.
Hoping to achieve a perfectly fit body to match her onscreen character, Jacky Choi, the winner of the 2012 Miss Chinese Melbourne Pageant, was determined to do a series of inverted stretches every day. Joyce Cheng helped look after her costar throughout the inverted exercising, despite her own sprained ankle and injured arm. Even martial arts champion, Wong Pui Man, was unable to prevent herself from getting hurt and also sprained her ankle.
