HK actor Louis Koo a gun nut after stint in 'Triple Tap'



HONG KONG: Hong Kong actor Louis Koo became obsessed with the sport of practical shooting and bought himself a gun after starring in director Derek Yee's shootout-heavy action flick "Triple Tap", reported Chinese media.

In the film, Koo plays a champion shooter who becomes a hero after encountering and lethally shooting a band of armed bank robbers, but is suspected to be the mastermind behind the heist by a crack shot police officer played by Daniel Wu.

Koo, 40, told reporters that it was a difficult project but added that it also caused him to become so enamored with practical shooting that he went out and bought his "dream gun".

"I read a lot of reference material and had to present the coolest-looking stance while trying to accommodate the best camera angles. As a result ... I suffered sprains towards the end of shooting," said Koo.

"After filming ended, I couldn't wait to order my 'dream gun'. I think it is the same for any gun enthusiast. Once they see a gun they like, they will think of ways to obtain it."

Co-star Wu, 35, didn't have it easy either. He spent a lot of time practising gun handling to prepare for his role, even when he was at home.

"To help us learn the correct firing posture, the director even hired a real shooting champion to train us. I would practise drawing a gun, reloading and so on, thousands of times when I was at home," said the recently-married Wu.

"My friends thought I had gone mad!"

Eason Chan Is The First Chinese Singer To Sing In Apollo Theatre


Eason Chan is currently touring in Europe. After he finished performing in London, his second stop is Manchester and he is the first Chinese singer to held an individual concert in that theatre. All 3000+ seats are full and the organization pointed out that Eason's two shows in English already made new records. The server was too busy that it was down once. Tickets were sold out in just several hours and they had to sell additional tickets.

During his concert in Manchester, Eason couldn't believe the audience was very enthusiastic. Whether he was singing Cantonese songs, Mandarin songs, or English songs, the audience would sing along with him and they would also dance as well.
