When talked about historic figures, Andy admires Xiang Yu, he also recommend himself to act Lu Buwei of Shin Shikotei Kika Okubeshi , Andy don't think that he looked like an emperor. However, in his limited experience playing an emperor especially Emperor Kang Xi in Duke of the Mount Deer, a confidence Andy said: "Duke of the Mount Deer had been remake so many times, everyone only remember me as the emperor!"

CCTV's Bai Jia Jiang Tan made us of book reading method to talk about Chinese history, other than watching non-stop for 40 hours without eating, he also plan to narrate Chinese history in Cantonese and produce into DVD to be distributed to school libraries in Hong Kong.

In order to act out Kang Xi well, Andy work hard to find history books and discuss with the script writers. Although Duke of the Mount Deer had been remake so many times, Andy's Kang Xi character leaves the deepest impression.
