As for which of the three leadactors' performances were the most satisfactory, the directors said,"(Danie Wu) Ng Yin Cho, Koo Tin Lok and Lau Ching Wan actually havevery different acting styles. OVERHEARD 2 gave them the most room toperform so their acting bug could have its fill. I like the three ofthem very much, they all are veteran actors with plenty of experience.During the shoot communication was particularly smooth, so thecollaboration was great."
