5 May 2013 / 3 years 5 months ago

Nick Cheung Ka Fai recently worked on the Universe new film, 'Metamorphosis'.According to an article in Asian fanatics, two days ago a scene was shot in which Ka Fai was trapped inside a sinking vehicle.Some stills immediately were unveiled online. The water pressure forced Ka Fai's face against the glass. After successfully escaping, his head was stuck at the gap of the door and he was at risk of suffocation at any moment.Ka Fai however could not be calmer. "I have made action scenes for years. If I feel I can't do it, I definitely wouldn't force anything. However the sea water was very cold, which was the most memorable. Chan Muk Sing was great. With my safety in mind he had a boat on stand by. The crew had underwater cameras and dove into the sea to capture the most convincing side. I thought the results were great." Chan Muk Sing's heart ached for Ka Fai. "Maybe due to a storm, the temperature was very low. He was in the water for several hours and his teeth were chattering. Many crew members told me not to shoot for so long. I felt the danger there was even more serious than being trapped in the car. Actually I already accepted several takes. Ka Fai was the one who asked if he could try again. He really is very responsible and professional." View the gallery for stills from, Nick Cheung's new movie.
