[It’s interesting to see 3 Tigers, Andy Lau 劉德華, Kent Tong 湯鎮業, and Felix Wong 黃日華 shared their thoughts and views on Idy as a person, colleague, and actress. Andy was speaking in Mandarin, and he’s kinda awkward and wasn’t looking at the camera at some moments when speaking about how he fell for Idy back then. Poor guy. Felix seems to understand Idy, as a friend, the most. Somehow, Eric Li 李潤庭’s voice sounds similar to Stephen Chan 陳志雲’s of Be My Guest 志雲飯局. Cool interview! However I wonder why it takes CableTV Ent. News or CEN so long to air these interviews. It’s been 4 months since this interview was done, in mid-September 2007. Again, it’s first aired on Jan 24th 2008 and 2nd rerun on Jan 27th 2008 (CableTV channel 13 in Hong Hong).]

Here’s the brief of what 3 Tigers say about Idy:
Andy lau : She and I are fated [Then he talked about their first collaboration at HK radio]
She and SLL are the same, one lives in modern and other’s from ancient time. Living in modern time is difficult and that’s why she has more problems.
There’s time during the shooting of ROCH, she’s not happy. Then I only learned that she and Fat Gor (Chow Yun Fat) broke up. When I know that she and Fat Gor were a couple, I really wished they ended together.
I’d tell her that I like her, but she gave no feedback, nothing I could do.
[more of andy’s response @ A5 News]
Kent Tong Chan Yip: We worked together in many series DGSD, ROCH, etc…
She’s such a cool person, very quiet. She fits the role Wong Yu Yin, WYY and SLL are similar so SLL fits her well too
She’s very lip-tight about her personal love life, she doesn’t talk about it at all.
Derek Chiu Sung Kei [director of movie “Brothers” starring 4 tigers: andy, felix, kent, and michael miu kiu wai]: When speaking of Idy we have to relate to SLL, harm nobody, her personality is very appealing, very charismatic. She’s such a legend.
Felix Wong Yat Wah: She entered the circle just a little before me. therefore, she’s my “senior”, I’ve always respected her and listened to her.
She’s a very quiet person, she doesn’t like to talk much. During break time, she’d sit by herself thinking, reading books, but when you can engage in a conversation with her, she has such a beautiful personality.
Don’t judge just because she doesn’t talk much. Give her any roles, from quiet to strong, and active characters, she’d play all very well. She’s really engaged into her roles. She’s very versatile.
The most happy time I remember was filming The Grand Canal. We all went to Xi’an to film. Then we’d eat meals together and hang out. We’d continue to hang out when return to HK. The most difficult one when we filmed “The Wild Bunch”, she and I played a pair. There’s so many outtakes for one scene, she slapped me [not quite understanding this part], and that she didn’t talk to me for a long time.
Because I already married, so often no feelings between me and her. But wow, her SLL character is so attractive. She and I are really good colleagues.
I’ve heard that she now has religious belief, she’s really doing good deeds for others, of course, it’s been a while since we worked together, now I just hope to see her, have tea and chatting, and what’s going on in our lives.
At the end of the interview, Ma Ka Fai [a popular HK columnist/scholar] shared his view on why Idy as SLL is the most favorite of all. Because she’s not that pretty, she has all the features that are just right and fit so well to be SLL.
