Meet Whitney Hui -- DaDa Chan's other replacement

22 August 2013 / 3 years 2 months ago

Originally starring DaDa Chan Jing, Lan Kwai Fong 3 had a joyful start of production on August 7th, but without any advanced warning, on August 9th DaDa announced her retirement due to an emotional disorder and vanished without notifying the production team.

Yet several days later she "resurfaced" for another film's additional shoot, thus enraging Lan Kwai Fong 3 director Wilson Chin Kwok Wai.

As everyone asked him whether he would look for a replacement for DaDa, Director Chin could not be angrier.

He reportedly removed DaDa's character on the script entirely and in ten short days, 2011 Miss Hong Kong second runner up Whitney Hui took the female lead.

She would play the role along with the film's other lead actress, Ava Yu.

To familiarize the actors with the performance, Director Chin led the actresses Ava Yu, Whitney and Inch Mouth Barbie in scouting the production area.

The three beauties descended the stairway like they were on the catwalk, as pedestrians ducked to the sides and stared.

Director Chin reportedly had his heart initially set on using Whitney as the lead actress.

However at the time, DaDa was still around and Director Chin could only arrange for Whitney to guest star.

With DaDa Chan now retiring, Director Chin promoted Whitney's role to lead actress.
