Gigi Leung recently admitted that she is excited about her new drama, as it has been 15 years since she starred in one.
As reported on Singtao, the singer, who appeared at the launching ceremony of her upcoming ViuTV series, “Anti-Starting Line Alliance” (working title), stated that while filming will take a long time, she is just happy to be able to remain in Hong Kong to do it.
“It’s more convenient for me, since it means I can take care of my daughter,” she said. Gigi has a 10-year old daughter, Sofia.
Gigi also stated that she has started to become addicted to acting, having had not done so for a long time.
“It’s a new attempt and a big challenge. The director said that it’s going to be really tough but I didn’t find that very hard because making a movie takes as much time as well,” she said.
Speaking about the series, which will revolve around the subject of tiger parenting, Gigi said that she is not one, and that she is more similar to her character in the series.
Asked why her daughter is not in the drama, she said, “I don’t want her to join the industry and worry about her. If she is in the drama, I will definitely be distracted and unconsciously take care of her the whole time instead. Plus, she is going back to school now.”
