The movie adaptation for Triumph in the Skies <衝上雲霄> will open in theaters on Lunar New Year, February 19. Starring the original cast of Triumph in the Skies 2Francis Ng (吳鎮宇), Chilam Cheung (張智霖), Kenneth Ma (馬國明), and Elena Kong (江美儀), the film also introduces new lead stars Louis Koo (古天樂), Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文),Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), and Amber Kuo (郭采潔).

Kenneth, who reprises his role as airline pilot Roy Ko, will continue his romance with the head stewardess Heather Fong, portrayed by Elena. The refreshing duo had an intimate kissing scene on the first day at work, but no awkwardness lingered between them when they kissed.

“It’s a good thing that both of us are close,” said Kenneth. Due to his busy filming schedule, Kenneth and Elena’s outdoor scenes in England were omitted. Elena said she was upset that she could not go. Kenneth explained, “I have to stay in Hong Kong to film my drama, so I apologize.”

Since Kenneth established his name when Triumph in the Skies aired, Kenneth agreed to his guest appearance in the movie without asking about money or screen time. “It was producer Tommy Leung (梁家樹) who gave me the opportunity in 2003. When he asked me to return for the movie, I have to pay my gratitude.”

Kenneth recently flew to Singapore to attend the opening ceremony of a jewelry brand. When asked if he had found new love, Kenneth shook his head, “The feng shui master said I will not have the chance to marry until 2018 or 2019, so I am not in a hurry. But if I can’t find a partner by then, I think I’ll be alone forever.”

In related news, Oceane Zhu (朱璇) will have a relationship line with Chinese actor Dean Liu (劉俊孝) in the Triumph in the Skies movie. In the movie, Deane will propose to Oceane while in flight. Oceane said her real life is not as dramatic, adding that she prefers living a simple life. Unlike Dean’s character, she finds the idea of having unrequited love for someone to be really tiring, and will not be stubborn about it.

Asked about memorable filming experiences, Oceane said she filmed the movie in England during the Mid-Autumn Festival. The cast celebrated the festival at the beach, and Louis Koo also treated them for dinner.

    Kenneth looks awkward in that kiss lol. This article makes it sound like it benefits the movie with him as guest star lol. He’s a no body when it comes to the big screen industry. He’s small potato. So he’s the one who struck gold when they asked him to guest star in a film.

      Dude they’re only 3 years apart. Elena is 43 and Kenneth is 40. So how is she “aunty”? It’s his own fault (cheap and impatient) tha he can’t get a girlfriend. Lol.

        LOL

        Kenneth Ma’s version of dating (on the cheap) is giving women rides home.
        Ladies, better to take a taxi home. 🙂

    Although they are compatible in terms of height, age etc, their storyline in TITS II was a yawn, much like the rest of the show. And even though I agree Elena is quite classy, Kenneth doesn’t have that air of mature sophistication. Despite the age similarity, it still comes of as a May/December pairing

      Elena looks classy and perfect for elegant roles.
      but paired with the wrong actor.

    I saw the TITS movie poster billboard, huge and I always thought Kenneth was a last minute slot in right at the end of the line. I don’t recall seeing his name in top billing though.

    And guess what? I think the background was not the sky but the sea? I hope not. Bad timing and awful poster. And the sea? Some kind of sick insider joke?
