Taking the leap
Day 3's shooting in Cheung Chau went quite well. One scene required the actors to swim in the sea. The temperature was about 21 Celsius but the water was much colder. Neither Ben nor Chi Kin wanted to go in. Someone said, "The water's freezing. Why don't you try going in?" I don't know how I found the courage, but I donned my floral print Speedo and leaped in without a thought. It really was quite cold, but it was worth it. The actors went ahead and did the scene, and I felt they respected me just a little bit more after that.
