Hong Kong actress Gigi Lai announced on Monday (Oct 20) her retirement from entertainment world after 23 years into the show business.
The 37-year-old actress made the announcement during a promotion event for her latest (and probably last) TV series “The Gems of Life”.
Gigi stated that she wants to spend more time on family matters, presumably to take care of her brother who was badly injured in a car accident in May 2007.
There are rumours that another reason behind her decision is to prepare for her marriage with a low profile millionaire; she denied about it though.
Gigi has starred in more than 50 movies and drama series over the years. Her career first peaked in mid-90s with the “Young and Dangerous” movies, but then gone downwards for a few years before making a successful return into drama acting in 2004 and remains popular since then.
To be frank, I’m not really going to miss her acting… wishing her all the best anyway.
