Despite his busy schedule, when told that the drama is a collaboration with Fire Services Department, he agreed immediately. Other than the Sichuan earthquake which Andy had a pleasant collaboration with Fire Services Department, actually he had kinship with civil servants, “My godfather was an Indian policeman which has the nickname of “big headed green clothes”, meanwhile my father was a fireman policeman stationed at the airport, many people in Fire Services Department still remember my father, thus I have a close feeling towards Fire Services Department.”
