Gregory Wong Goes Nearly Nude for Pang Ho Cheung’s “Lazy Hazy Crazy”
Rising star Gregory Wong (王宗堯) has no limits for showing skin onscreen. The actor shared that he almost went fully nude for Pang Ho Cheung’s (彭浩翔) latest film Lazy Hazy Crazy <同班同學>, and said he has no problems in doing it again.
To celebrate the film’s completion, the cast and crew of Pang Ho Cheung’s Lazy Hazy Crazy held a nine-table banquet on June 19. Siu Yam Yam (邵音音), Chui Tien You (徐天佑), and female lead Ashina Kwok (郭奕芯) were also present.
Gregory only took three days to film his part in the film. Lazy Hazy Crazy is Gregory’s second attempt at going almost fully nude in a movie, after last month’s Imprisoned Survival Guide for Rich and Prodigal <壹獄壹世界>. “None of us have a limit,” said Gregory. “I wasn’t wearing underwear either,” he laughed. “I was almost nude. I think the visuals would look good on screen. Even the director said he didn’t want to look at me!”
Unlike most bed scenes, which are heavily choreographed and hard to film, Gregory said his intimate scene with Ashina was fairly easy, and it was not awkward to do at all. He also praised his partner for being a great actress, explaining that she has captured the youth aura of her character really well.
An increasing amount of Hong Kong’s films and television dramas are now being co-produced with China or other countries, losing that distinct “Hong Kong flavor.” Asking if Gregory would be interested in working on a co-production, he said, “Co-productions have their benefits. The market in China is much larger. More money is invested in those films and the filming environment is more comfortable. However, there is a limit to the things we can explore in those films.”
He continued. “It really depends. If you want more money and increase your fame, you should do those films. If you’re stubborn like me, then try doing more different things first.” Gregory believes that working on smaller, local productions can help hone his acting better.
