As much as we appreciate the films and movies produced, there’s always one thing a lot of fans are interested in afterwards. The behind-the-scenes. After all, the magic on screen is great but we all know there’s plenty of stuff we don’t get to see.
Well, drama producer Gary Yeung Siu Hung (杨绍鸿) knows this well. He’s produced for TVB TV and Asia TV and later, was a senior executive of ATV. As such, he’s seen and interacted with many different artists. A few years ago, he shared some interesting anecdotes about famous artists, including the legend Andy Lau (刘德华).
According to Gary, he’d met and worked with Andy Lau during his TVB days. At that time, they’d been filming for the Hong Kong film “True Legend (苏乞儿)”. Gary had been working as an assistant director then and got along well with Andy. However, he was surprised to discover Andy had a certain ‘hobby’.
The esteemed actor apparently had a soft spot for actresses with long hair. In fact, he once asked Michelle Yeoh (杨紫琼) who was the lead actress if he could play with her hair. Andy was supposedly notorious for falling asleep on set and thought playing with her hair would help. “Will you let me touch (your hair)? That way I’ll be refreshed soon!” he reportedly said.
Gary also shared that Andy had been interested in training to be a director. With some encouragement, from the class’ instructor, Andy took up the training and later on, accelerated his career in the film and tv industry. Now, Andy is not only a known actor and singer, he has also produced several award-winning films.
Well, we all know there’s always more to see than what is shown on screen! Andy’s habit is certainly one not many have heard of, yet it makes him all the more endearing.
