Lee Tim Sing and Cast Promote “Bullet Brain”
Lee Tim Sing’s (李添勝) upcoming television period drama, Bullet Brain <神探高倫布>, premiered on Monday night, April 8. The diverse cast, including Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Sire Ma (馬賽), Ngo Ka Nin (敖嘉年), Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Joe Junior, Brian Burrell (布偉傑), Lau Dan (劉丹), and Corinna Chamberlain (陳明恩), were in attendance at a promotion event held at Mikiki Mall in San Po Kong, New Kowloon.
Bullet Brain is a fantasy detective drama that takes place in sixties British Hong Kong. Wayne stars as the titular protagonist Columbo, a detective whose intelligent shoots up a tenfold after he gets shot in the head by a bullet.
Tim Gor stressed that while Bullet Brain is amusing in nature, the drama should not be viewed as a complete comedy. Instead, Tim Gor labeled the drama as “quirky and fun.” Aiming for his drama to look refreshing and unique for the audience, Tim cast western actors, such as Brian Burrell and Corinna Chamberlain, and have them take part in major supporting roles.
Corinna Chamberlain Gives First Onscreen Kiss
Corinna Chamberlain, who shot to fame after starring in Inbound Troubles, stars as Ngo Ka Nin’s English wife in Bullet Brain. Corinna exclaimed that she gave her first onscreen kiss to Ka Nin and was very worried during the shoot. As the scene was filmed outdoors, many onlookers surrounded the filming area, and Corinna almost had a nervous breakdown.
Ka Nin praised Corinna’s flexibility and called her kissing as “skillfull.” Recent reports indicated that Ka Nin touched the side of Corinna’s breasts during their kiss. Ka Nin said in surprise, “I don’t think I touched anything!”
Corinna assured, “He didn’t touch anything! Ka Nin is very professional and took care of me very well.”
What’s the difference between kissing an Asian and a Caucasian? After a moment’s thought, Ka Nin said, “[Corinna’s] nose is very tall so it’s in the way!”
Edwin Siu Will Support Gigi Ho’s Horse
Edwin, who was spotted at the Sha Tin Racecourse with his rumored girlfriend, Gigi Ho (何傲芝) last Monday, clarified that he was only there with her to support a mutual friend.
Was this Edwin’s way of announcing his relationship with her to the public? “You mean relationship with the horse?” Edwin laughed. The A Great Way to Care 2 star clarified that Gigi is just a rumored girlfriend. “I heard she plans to raise a horse. I will support her.” Will Edwin sponsor her? “Yes, with my spirit! When it’s her time to race, I will attend the event!”
Tim Gor Welcomes Joel Chan’s Return to TVB
Joel Chan’s (陳山聰) recent alleged breakup with heiress Florinda Ho (何超雲) has raised questions concerning Joel’s future, particularly with his career at TVB. As one of Tim Gor’s favorite artists, Tim Gor assured that he will cast Joel in his upcoming productions should he ever return to TVB.
“The last time we’ve seen each other was two to three months ago. I will definitely use him [in future dramas] if he ever decides to return to TVB. There are some characters that only [Joel] could do well in, such as his boastful role in The Last Steep Ascent <天梯>. He was perfect.”
What if Joel fell in love with another and leaves TVB again? Tim Gor expressed his confidence in Joel, saying, “He was already dating [Florinda Ho] at the time [of filming The Last Steep Ascent], but he didn’t leave [TVB] until after he finished shooting the drama. I’m not worried.”

Joel is his favourite? I could see Joel as columbo though.
Anyway Edwin and Wayne look like brothers!
I do not see how Bullet Brain is a comedy or pseudo comedy.
Lee Tim Shing has frequently cast Joel Chan in his dramas, so he’s one of his favorites.
Ngo Ka Nin would be Tim Gor’s favorite in this sense as well. Ka Nin is a good actor and able to play Joel’s roles.
Wayne, Pierre, Sire, Edwin, Natalie, Raymond Wong are all frequently cast in Lee Tim sing’s dramas. I’m really enjoying Bullet Brain so far. I think its a serious drama, but right now has some comedic moments because Wayne’s character is so dumb. It’s almost as if Wayne and Pierre have a love story ;D http://casualtvb.blogspot.ca/2013/04/wayne-lai-and-pierre-ngo-love-story.html
Definitely a comedy — Wayne Lai’s performance is nothing but a joke.
Saw the first episode and so far, not that impressed….I’ll probably stick it out for another few episodes (only cuz it’s Tim Gor) but after that, if the series fails to impress me (which I doubt it will), it’s definitely going bye-bye for me (LOL). As much as I like and respect Tim Gor, unfortunately his series recently really haven’t struck a chord with me – the only recent series of his I really adored and loved enough to re-watch was Bottled Passion….
First two episodes of Bullet Brain are funny; i love Wayne’s humorous acting. He makes me laugh nonstop.
Hope someone can answer this. Is Corinna Chamberlain of mixed heritage? Her canto was excellent and her acting was certainly more convincing in Inbound Troubles than Ivanna Wong and lots of the new starlets that tvb promotes. She has potential
She is not mixed heritage (with Asian) unless her blond hair is bleached and not her real hair colour. If you’ve lived all your life in France, I am sure you too can speak French without any accent. Same goes for Corinna and her Cantonese.
