Bruised Lee

Posted by Ruok On November - 16 - 2008

The shoot was one of the most physically grueling ones I had, and the bruises I have all over my body is a telling testament to that.

The end product was worth the effort I guess. The playback of the scenes had me wincing at the body blows my character received, and the director was also concerned if there was real contact.

I didn’t feel anything untoward during the shoot of course, but the very next day, the places where the punches landed actually felt a bit tender.

That and a lot of bruises all over my arms, shoulders and elbow, make for one very bruised Lee.

After a spell of almost 10 months, I finally got my next tv role.

And contrary to what my “fans” are thinking, its not a villainy role.

It was kinda flattering when the casting director told me they thought I was good and was considering a few roles for me. But then again, I’ve always known I was good. 😛

This small role comes at a time when I’m experiencing one of my slowest acting spell. It comes at a time where I’ve done numerous auditions for the past few months and have nothing to show for it. It comes at a time where it really looks like I’ve committed career suicide by rejecting super bit roles from Chinese drama.

It comes at a time where I’ve almost given up.

And yet, I had the balls to ask to look at the script first, and had the balls to ask for decent remuneration.

I do like to live on the edge hor?

Never Say Never

They say America will never have an African American President.

Never say never.

I had full confidence he will win though.

Well done, Mr President-Elect Obama. 😀

Derek : “And you think I’m an honorable man?”

Jane : “Do you know when to walk away? Do you know when not to take less than you deserve?” If you do, then you’re an honorable man.”

I guess, I am one then.
