“Fagara” (花椒之味), a film starring Sammi Cheng, Megan Lai, and Xiaofeng Li as half-sisters, contains a scene that has excited many fans: a surprise cameo appearance by Sammi Cheng’s close friend and colleague, Andy Lau.
The twist unfolds during a seemingly unimportant scene when the ex-boyfriend of Sammi’s character shows up. Andy Lau accepted the invitation to play the role of ex-boyfriend after feeling moved by the script. He wanted to support Sammi in her lead role.
In this eye-catching scene, the two former lovers, who had once thought of getting engaged, have a frank discussion about their break up. It portrays an honest discussion about the wide gap that exists between men and women’s different mindsets.
Throughout the movie, the two characters go on a journey from former lovers to friends and then appear to reconcile with one another. For both actors, who have experience working well together on screen, playing the scene came so naturally that it felt as if they were an actual couple, even prompting cheers from the director and staff.
