One of the highlights of “Goldfinger” is a passionate kissing scene between Tony Leung and Charlene Choi, with a notable age gap of 20 years. When questioned about their commitment to the scene, Leung humorously affirmed his dedication, while Choi playfully turned the question on him. However, the laughter continued as Choi revealed that Carina Lau, after watching the test film, expressed “dissatisfaction” and suggested a more “wolfish” approach.
Ah Sa’s Response to Carina Lau’s Feedback
In response to Lau’s critique, Charlene Choi, affectionately known as Ah Sa, defended her performance, stating, “After watching it, Sister Jialing told me that it should be more wolfish (meaning ferocious). I said it was already very wolfish according to my standards.” Tony Leung, when asked if he thought Ah Sa was “wolf” enough, playfully responded, “I think…anything is fine…she thinks this level is enough,” eliciting laughter from the audience.
The premiere of “Goldfinger” not only showcased the stars’ maturity in their craft but also offered a glimpse into the lighthearted camaraderie and playful banter that defines the film’s behind-the-scenes dynamics.
