22 Jun – Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau recently admitted that he was surprised by how much chemistry he had with Karena Lam, after working together for the first time in the new movie "The White Storm 2 - Drug Lords".
As reported on Mingpao, the actor, who plays husband and wife with the actress in the movie, shared that the two of them hit if off quickly as soon as they started working, and managed to maintain the chemistry even off camera.
"I never thought that we would be a convincing married couple, but it came naturally," he said, adding that it was a pity that they never worked together before.
On the other hand, when asked about his chemistry with Chrissie Chau, who plays his ex-girlfriend in the movie, Andy said that he felt embarrassed about playing her boyfriend at first due to their age gap.
"But after working together, I realised that the casting in this movie is really good. It was refreshing," he said.
In the new movie directed by Herman Yau, Andy plays a former triad member turned financial tycoon who offers a multimillion-dollar bounty on Hong Kong's top drug dealer.
