Chilam Cheung Gains Weight for “Always Be With You”

Chilam Cheung (張智霖) disregarded his pretty boy image to play a depressive, remorseful taxi driver who struggles with his self-worth after surviving a fatal car accident that had killed many people. He gets involved in a series of strange murders, which are interrelated.

The actor introduced, “I’ve never played the role of a taxi driver before. After his accident, he feels like he needs to atone for his sins. This was difficult role for me because I don’t usually play roles who is burndened with so much sin. I’m a positive person, so to see the opposite side of that definitely required a lot of research and thinking.”

Chilam shared that he also gained weight for his role. “You never really see a very fit taxi driver. You’re always sitting down, so they do have a belly.” Chilam also went bare-faced for his role, saying, “He’s not a sharp person. There’s not a drop of makeup on me. I wanted to become this person as much as I can.”

The horror-thriller film, Always Be With You <常在你左右>, premieres on October 26 in Hong Kong, and costars Louis Koo (古天樂), Gordon Lam (林家棟), Charlene Choi (蔡卓淫), and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼).

    Lol so Law lan is the go-to scary old lady for horror films. Plot sounds interesting but no, don’t fancy watching the same old few actors/actresses again.
