Huang Xiao Ming Films Ip Man 2 with Donnie Yen

By on April 20, 2010 in NEWS, TV Dramas


In Ip Man 2 <葉問 2>, Huang Xiao Ming will portray Donnie Yen Chi Dan’s eldest disciple, Huang Liang.  In the film, Xiao Ming had numerous fighting sequences. In one memorable scene, he and Donnie fought one hundred men. Xiao Ming and Donnie continued to fight their assailants, but the men surrounded the pair and kept attacking. Fortunately, Donnie and Xiao Ming were able to escape safely.

Since he was a young boy, Xiao Ming loved reading martial arts novels. It was always his dream to star in an action movie. Partnering with Donnie and Sammo Hung Kam Bo in Ip Man 2, Xiao Ming felt a large amount of pressure. One month prior to filming Ip Man 2, he started learning Wing Chun with a skilled martial artist and practiced vigorously opposite a wooden beam.

In an earlier interview, Donnie noted that although Xiao Ming did not have a martial arts background, Donnie admired his professionalism. In one scene, Xiao Ming did not meet the expectations of martial arts choreographer, Sammo Hung. Thus, Xiao Ming and Donnie had to film the combat scene many times. Although Xiao Ming’s arms started getting swollen and his face grew pale, he did not ask to stop to take a rest. This earned Donnie’s deepest respect.

    Its very hard to take Donnie seriously playing a subdued and refined character after X million years of watching him play flamboyant, cocky and egotistic characters with paper-thin characterization.

    Each time you see him, you just want to see him hurt someone; which can be good and bad.

    SDS, your comment made me laugh out loud!

    Donnie does seem to exert a strong confidence in himself. His character role in “Ip Man” would be closer to Jet Li’s image.
