Age might stop some actors from doing action sequences, but not Hong Kong iconic star Chow Yun Fat.
Recently during his Beijing visit to promote the upcoming crime thriller Project Gutenberg, which will hit Chinese mainland theatres on Sept 30, the 63-year-old actor reveals he has enjoyed performing stunts on the sets.

"I've got old injuries, which initially made me uncomfortable. But after I took off my coat, I felt relaxed," says Chow.
The film directed by Felix Chong follows a counterfeiting gang. It also features Hong Kong singer-actor Aaron Kwok.
The other members of the cast are actress Zhang Jingchu, Taiwan actor David Wang and Hong Kong actor Alex Fong Chung-sun.
