Him Law and Henry Lau were in Fantastic Physical Shape For “Double World”

Both Him Law (羅仲謙) and Henry Lau (劉憲華) trained to top-notch shape for their upcoming film Double World <征途>, which will stream simultaneously on China’s iQIYI and internationally only Netflix at the end of the month.

Set in a fantasy world inspired by ancient China, Double World is based on the video game Zhengtu <征途>, an MMORPG first released in China in 2007. Directed by Teddy Chan (陳德森), Double World initially had plans for a theatrical release, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the  theatrical release was canceled, favoring an online release instead.

Him Law and Henry Lau stayed in great physical shape throughout the film’s shooting duration, which took three months. Sharing new shirtless photos of their characters, the duo had to maintain their physique due to the high demand of shirtless scenes throughout the film. Despite having to film action scenes under 40 C (104 F) weather for 12 hours, Him and Henry still made time to stop by at the gym after work to continue training.

Him and Henry maintained a strict diet throughout. Henry gave up eating rice, noodles, and other carbs for a much cleaner diet of boiled chicken breast and greens. Him followed his trainer’s advice, which to eat meals with less oil and salt.

Not only did they have to train their endurance to accommodate action scenes, they also to continuously build muscle to show off their physique. “Besides strength training, our trainer also had to give us special arrangements to improve our muscle definition. For example: in the few days before our photoshoot, we were told to only drink about 10 liters of water. On the day of the shoot, we stuffed ourselves with potatoes so we could lose more water and make our muscles look more defined.”

Asking if he had measured his chest size after the shoot, Him laughed and said, “I haven’t. I’m guess around 42 inches!”

Double World also stars Peter Ho (何潤東), and will be available on Netflix on July 24, 2020.

      @m0m0 Eh, those posters do not look like Him’s face. Is that what he really looks like now or just lots of photoshop???

      Who are these people? O_O Can they act or just eye candy? Netflix world wide release or just Asia area?? If it’s the former, I hope they can act and carry; and not a cheesy replica of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Hope it’ll redeem that one movie about Great Wall with Andy Lau and Matt Damon; that was omg horrible. Come on, represent well! Add oil!

        @msxie0714 Is Henry actually talented in acting though? Or is he a vase? Is he also an actual popular name? Or is he like Him, who’s really an empty Shell? Not sure how Him is getting all these roles in movies. Good has a management company !
