Hong Kong Star Daniel Wu Adds Madame Tussauds Hong Kong to His Growing Portfolio

[quote]The studio team were extremely diligent and took very precise measurements of me. Although it was a long process but the whole experience was fun and memorable. I am curious to see the final outcome soon!” — Daniel Wu[/quote]

Hong Kong With a 16-year career in the film industry and over 60 movies under his belt, Daniel Wu is definitely one Asia’s top stars and will soon join many other top celebrities with their wax figures on display at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. Now with his own production company, and a series of high-profile film roles in the pipeline, the actor-producer is one of the hottest properties in Hong Kong.

A professional team from the Madame Tussauds UK Studio specifically travelled to Berlin early this year to conduct a detailed sitting process for Daniel, taking precise measurements and hundreds of photos to produce the wax figure. To ensure perfection to the best of their capabilities, Daniel Wu also had his hair, eyes and teeth matched for colour so that an exact wax double can be created.

Despite being a busy dad and having a tight working schedule, Daniel was his normal congenial self for the sitting session, joking and mingling with the team during the sitting and filling the room with merriment. The entire studio team was impressed with his professionalism and enjoyed every
moment working with this true star.

General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, Kelly Mak says: “Being an actor, director and producer, Daniel Wu has a strong dedication to the filming industry. He has starred in many iconic movies and has been nominated for various film awards. Guests will soon be able to meet him up close at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong and we are sure his fans would be thrilled!”
