Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi and Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) in the film LEGENDARY AMAZONS (YEUNG MOON NUI JEUNG ji GWUN LING YU SAN) had emotional scenes. They even had a kiss scene. During the shoot they were all flushed with embarrassment. Although Siu Chai and Pak Chi were good friends, the more familiar they were the more awkward they felt. In addition both have become parents. When they remembered their children at home, they could not focus. Their eyes would helplessly wander. Sometimes they did not even know where to look and thus cracked up with several dozen bad takes.
Finally the director had to half threaten half order them not to laugh again, otherwise the bad takes would be end credit material. Then they were able to complete the scene. In addition, Siu Chai had a lot of experience with costume films. However the shoot took place in the winter. Thus when he wore the several dozen pound icy armor, he felt the chill to the bones. In addition he had to handle the martial art action. Siu Chai often joked, "No one can be more tired, starved and colder than this."
