Anthony Wong Admits Altering Dialogue in “Lord of Shanghai”
Yesterday, Anthony Wong (黃秋生) attended a promotional event for Ten Month Relationship <十月關係>, a book on sexual power for women. It is written by the clinical psychologist Ho Nim Chee (何念慈), who is also the wife of Anthony’s good friend Cheung Tat Ming (張達明). A portion of the book’s profit will be donated to the End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation.
Anthony said he has always lacked a sense of security, and said his own wife is his protector. In order to repay her, Anthony joked that he had to sacrifice his body to her. He also added with a laugh, “My wife is very aggressive! It’s miserable! When I’m in the house, I’m at her mercy.” Asked if he will be planning to go on an overseas vacation with his wife, he said, “I don’t like traveling. I’m in charge of earning the money so she can go on them.”
Anthony has made a long-awaited return to television and is currently shooting the TVB drama Lord of Shanghai <梟雄> with Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Kent Tong (湯鎮業). Anthony expressed that filming has been going smoothly and he is having great fun.
Asked if Anthony has improvised and changed some of the dialogue in the script, he said, “Of course, I have. I’ve altered the dialogue so it can be more reasonable and more in tune with my character. While reading the dialogue I can tell that the writers are really young. They most likely have not had enough life experiences. The general meaning and idea is there, but they don’t know to properly write it down. It’s not a big problem; we’ll just take it as it goes, but many actors would have to pick that up on their own.”
Mentioning that Anthony may be one of the few actors in TVB who is bold enough to completely alter a script’s dialogue, he disagreed. “There’s nothing bold about it. I’m still telling the same story and going through the same main points. It’s just straightening details out and making it even better.”
