Local actor Christopher Lee may have had his newborn son Zed's poop splattered all over his shirt.

But the 42-year-old did not mind it one bit.

Instead of feeling exasperated, Lee smiled when it happened as he saw it as a sign of good luck.

And in a way, it was.

The actor received good news the next day that he was nominated for the highly-coveted Best Actor title at the prestigious Golden Bell Awards, Taiwan's equivalent of the Emmy Awards.

Lee was speaking to local media at the press conference of his upcoming Channel 8 drama Against The Tide, which premieres Sept 24 at 9pm.
