Still Have It

Posted by Ruok On September - 23 - 2007

Got roped in to play as Quah Kim Swee, one of Quah Kim Song’s brothers in a docudrama about his Life Story. The script called for a scene where we were playing football and I was pretty excited about it.

Of course, the last time I played a full football match of sorts was almost two decades ago, while I was in primary school. And, mind you, Kim Swee was a national player. Talk about an acting challenge. -_-”

The director choreographed the moves with us yesterday morning, and we kept practising till we, errm, could pass off as national players on screen. I think we took a good one hour of practice and then another hour just to shoot the sequences down.

The experience was almost akin to 2 hours of interval training. And to say I was damn shagged at the end is really just an understatement. Typing this now, every freaking muscle of my body aches and I remember taking a three hour nap after I finished the rest of the scenes (the football scene was the first scene, and I had two more scenes with dialogue after that).

Oh, and I had blisters on both my feet as well. The pain-until-walk-must limp-a-bit kind. Talk about suffering for the art man. 😛

But my efforts did not go to waste; the director was really impressed with my football skills (and, I hope, my acting as well). All I can say is that despite such a long hiatus, I still have it man. I guess what they say is true, form is temporary, class is permanent, kekeke. 😉

Either that or its the power of Method. But if it really is Method, I think I’m about to freak out…

    maybe he’s trying to suggest to you that you should try your hand at football instead.

    Leia, doubt that. He did say he’ll keep me in mind for future roles that involve playing football.
