Chrissie Chau is a pro in front of the camera. Every wave of hair, tilt of chin, pursed lips, angle of legs would be just perfect.
Even when she is seated for a casual chat or munching on a late lunch, the gorgeous lass is always photo-ready. That is the reason why the glamorous model-turned-actress has been the No. 1 Most Searched Photos on Yahoo! for four consecutive years (from 2009 to 2012).
Having photographed Chau a couple of times prior to this, The Star photographer Raymond Ooi, too, had praises for her professionalism.
"Chrissie Chau poses effortlessly for such brilliant pictures. She knows what is required and gives her best in every shot," Ooi remarked while reviewing the pictures he took of the 28-year-old actress.
Chau was recently in town with film director Vincci Cheuk and fellow co-stars Hidy Yu and Dada Lo to launch the music video for the action flick Kick Ass Girls. The Hong Kong movie revolves around the lives and loves of three fiesty girls played by Chau, Yu and Lo.
To look like authentic fighters in the movie, the trio had to undergo intensive training for half a year.
"Learning how to kick and punch was really a lot of fun. I love watching action movies, but never realised it required so much work," said Chau, who took on Kick Ass Girls because "Hong Kong action movie headlined by female stars is not easy to come by".
Like most actors who star in action flicks, Chau suffered her fair share of injuries while filming (it was widely reported by the Hong Kong media). But when asked about them, she was apologetic and preferred to play down her own bumps and bruises.
Chau injured her left leg on the first day of shooting, where she had to spin-kick some thugs while wearing a tight mini-dress and killer six-inch heels.
"It definitely looks better on screen for a girl to be fighting in heels, so I felt quite sorry that my injury resulted in a change of plans and schedules," lamented Chau.
