Gigi Lai, Maggie Cheung, Charmaine Sheh and Moses Chan's ancient drama for TVB "War and Beauty" will be airing on the 23rd of this month. The story tells of the conflicts from within the Imperial Palace as the concunbines fight for power and the love of the emperor. Maggie, Charmaine and Gigi all play concubines respectively in a display of acting talent and seduction.

"War" was filmed earlier in Beijing and it was very cold there at the time, so all the crew had to bear the harsh weather, especially the ladies who had to wear their thin sexy costumes. Among them, Gigi's was the most seductive as her costumes were either shoulderless or camisoles and in one scene, she appears lain on a bed in a very sexy pose, as she waited for the emperor's return. However, after a sly trick from Charmaine, she can only wait.

Gigi said in a telephone interview yesterday: "I was really very cold when I was in Beijing filming because all the costumes were summer clothes, so I had to use over ten warm packs a day to keep warm and even had them on the soles of my feet. In contrast, when we were filming in Hong Kong, we were shooting winter scenes in summer, but it is all worth it because this show was really about acting abilities and all three of us really challenged each other." Talking of her sexy scenes, Gigi said: "The costumes this time are the most beautiful ancient costumes ever, too bad that my character doesn't get a good ending because the emperor finds out about my other lover."
