(Taipei March 18, 2017)  Shawn Yue and  the director of Mad World, Wong Chun turned up for an interview with the media recently.

To their surprise, Mad World actor Eric Tsang showed up as well, as he happened to be in Taiwan for an event.

Eric, who plays Shawn’s father in the movie, was praised for "showing his true feelings" in the eating scene, but he replied, "I always do the same. Maybe it’s because I really eat the food while filming."

He shared that he really ate the food every time, and that he once had to vomit in order to continue to act, as he had eaten too much. Another time, he finished all the rice because the scene had to be retaken too many times. In the end, they had to borrow some rice from the neighbor. 

Shawn then teased Eric, saying "No wonder you get fat."

Shawn, who played a character with bipolar disorder in the movie, revealed that it was a role that demanded the most psychological skills so far.

During the  14 days of filming, Shawn spent more than a dozen hours working every day.

Once he got home, he'd collapse in his sofa and stare blankly at the wall for a few hours, as he was so drained from work.

When filming was completed, he immediately left Hong Kong to distance from the trying role.

Although Shawn had missed getting nominated for the Golden Horse Awards, he still scored his first nomination for the Hong Kong Film Awards scheduled in April.

When asked if he had thought of marrying his girlfriend, Sarah Wang, he said smilingly, "I haven’t considered that. I was forced to go public because we were caught on camera, and  we’ve only dated for 3 months. Don’t think too much."
