Andy Lau Tak Wa has been working on his new film LOST AND LONELY (SUT GOO) in Quanzhou since mid-March.
He plays a farmer who begins a decade-long search for his kidnapped son.
So far, he has shot scenes in Quanzhou, Nanchang, and Wuhan.
Earlier, he arrived in Chongqing to start work. After over a month of crossing provinces across the continents, his look went from dirty initially to dark and thin in the middle of the production.
On the streets of Nanchang law enforcement even tried to drive him away.
Earlier, Andy was even more convincing while working in Chongqing. He looked old and weathered.
The ladies who looked on questioned if he really was Lau Tak Wa.
However, fans were excited and felt that this film would bring Andy another Best Actor award.
Two days ago, he began work in a small Chongqing community. He wore a gray labourer's jacket, and his facial hair was gradually graying, which was very different from his "Heavenly King" image.
Some whispered, "He is completely different from on television, is he Lau Tak Wa?" In one scene Jing Boran gave Andy a ride on his motorcycle with a banner that said "searching for son".
When the neighbors were certain that he was Lau Tak Wa they said, "The star in real life isn't handsome, he looks dark and thin." Some even thought that Wa Jai had no star flavor.
Andy was focused on work and ignored all the reviews from neighbors. However he still paid attention to his surroundings and he helped pedestrians. He won the praises of many.
During the shoot the production team had road blocks. Andy was waiting to take his mark when a motorcycle wanted to pass through.
The crew was about to stop it when Andy grabbed the worker for the motorcycle to pass.
Someone took a photo, posted it online and praised Wa Jai, saying that details decided a person's achievement.
Lau Tak Wa was not only a superstar but also a good role model. Seeing this, some said that real big shots do not act like big shots.
Wa Jai's farmer look received fan praises for how convincing it was; but some did noticed his arms were too smooth to belong to a real farmer.
