2 Jul – Taiwanese singer-actor Wang Leehom has recently begun filming for his first Hollywood movie, "Cyber".

As reported on 4HW, the singer recently shared his experience on Weibo about his hectic 3am filming.

"Another night of filming but since it will finish by 10am, I should call it a day instead. The filming schedule has upturned my adaptation to the time differences between Los Angeles and Hong Kong. [I'm] exhausted."

The actor, joined by the cast and crew that include director Michael Mann and "Thor" star, Chris Hemsworth, have been filming since 29 June in Hong Kong. The movie will be alternatively shot between Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
