Aaron Kwok Wears a Fat Suit in “City Under Seige”
In the upcoming Summer action movie, City Under Seige <全城戒备>, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing plays a circus knife thrower that attains superhero abilities after accidental exposure to chemical gas left by the Japanese army in World War II. Directed by Benny Chan, the movie also stars Shu Qi as a news reporter.
During the filming of a failed explosion scene, a stuntman accidentally had seventy-five percent of his skin burned. Despite this, Aaron Kwok insisted on filming dangerous scenes (including wire scenes) himself, without the use of a stunt double.
In addition, Aaron will be abandoning his normal handsome image by appearing as an overweight character. A daily four-hour make-up application process is required to produce Aaron’s obese look. Due to the heavy make-up, Aaron’s skin [on his face and body] has become red, swollen, and irritated.
