Isabella Leong (梁洛施) announced her return to the film industry in 2013 after accepting a role in director Sylvia Chang‘s (張艾嘉) Calling All Angels <念念>. Although selective in her work projects, Isabella agreed to make a cameo appearance in Sandra Ng’s (吳君如) Lunar New Year comedy 12 Golden Ducks <12金鴨>.
Sandra, who stars and produces 12 Golden Ducks, tried to keep the cast list a surprise. However, it was leaked that Isabella Leong, Louis Koo (古天樂), Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒), Simon Yam (任達華), Joey Yung (容祖兒), Wilfred Lau (劉浩龍), Babyjohn (蔡瀚億), Pakho Chau (周柏豪), and Wyman Wong (黃偉文) will be making cameo appearances in the raunchy movie. Louis is also on board as co-producer.
12 Golden Ducks is a sex comedy about a group of male prostitutes struggling to live in Hong Kong’s poor economy. Sandra, who will be portraying a gigolo, wore prosthetic makeup to enhance her male looks.
12 Golden Ducks will be competing with other blockbusters Triumph in the Skies <衝上雲宵> and From Vegas to Macau 2 <賭城風雲2> for the 2015 Lunar New Year box office. Due to its explicit topic, the film will not play in Mainland Chinese theaters.
Isabella Portrays Sex-Services Client
In late December, the reporters spotted Isabella filming for 12 Golden Ducks at a fitness center in Kwun Tong. Dressed as an office worker, it was reported that Isabella will be portraying one of the male prostitute’s clients.
Isabella’s manager Michelle Loo (盧覓雪), who is good friends with Sandra, persuaded Isabella to accept the cameo role in 12 Golden Ducks. To thank Isabella for her help, Sandra paid Isabella’s traveling and hotel fees to Hong Kong. Michelle will also be making a cameo appearance in the film.
