Triple-award winning TV King, Kevin Cheng ( 鄭嘉穎), was not only well loved by TVB, he was also praised by normally critical netizens. Hong Kong residents loved his role from Ghetto Justice <怒火街頭>, “Law Ba” while mainlanders admired him due to his Eighth Prince role in Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步驚心>. With his hot popularity, there was naturally a market for Kevin. After winning the 2011 TVB Best Actor Award, his filming fee alleged rose from $160,000 to $250,000 Yuan per episode in mainland China.
Since there was a large amount of money to be made in China, Kevin will start filming mainlander series Hero <英雄> after Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭2> wraps up. Kevin indicated that he will need to remain in China for six months when the filming for Hero occurs. Although he will be missing for half a year from Hong Kong, Kevin will earn $10 million Yuan for the 30-episode mainland series. It was rumored that Kevin earned $3 million Yuan per event appearance.
Sleeping for 3 Hours
It was useless even if there were daily exposure in Hong Kong and working to death in Hong Kong! Recently Kevin pulled numerous late nights while filming Ghetto Justice 2 due to filming outdoors and disorganized filming schedules from new onset production assistants. Appearing tired frequently, Kevin only slept three hours per night and relied on coffee to boost his alertness.
Awesome Building Collapse
The climax of the first installment of Ghetto Justice featured Shek Shau (石修) killing Sharon Chan (陳敏之). The ending of Ghetto Justice 2 will be more realistic, featuring a massive building collapse due to structural instability. TVB will invest heavily into the shooting of this disaster scene by featuring a damaged building in Ancient TVB City. The scene will be filmed this week and will feature Kevin Cheng and Myolie Wu’s (胡杏兒) characters diving into the rubble to rescue victims of the building collapse. In the sequel, Kevin and Myolie will not simply portray lawyers.
