Linda Chung Says She May Never Return To TVB
She recently attended the TVB Anniversary Awards (her first time after six years) where she lost out on the Best Actress award.
The 37-year-old, who now lives in Vancouver with her husband and their two kids, was nominated for her role in medical drama Kids’ Lives Matter and was tipped as the hot favourite to win Best Actress.
The award eventually went to Rosina Lam for her role in Battle Of The Seven Sisters while Linda took home the Malaysia’s Favourite TVB Actress award.
You can't tell but she's really happy to be back
Before the awards, Linda took her YouTube followers on a little tour of TVB City.
"I am back at my alma mater. I never thought I would have the opportunity to participate in this awards ceremony again. I am very excited and a little nervous ‘cos I know that I do not have many opportunities or may never have the chance to return to the station again, so I must enjoy myself tonight,” she said.
Thanking her husband backstage
Despite losing out on the award, Linda said on YouTube that she had a "wonderful experience" at the awards .
"Sometimes life doesn't work out the way you want it to and it's ok," she said. "I trust in every experience to enrich me. I gained so much and learned so much about myself. I am so blessed to have so many people around the world supporting me and loving me in ways I cannot imagine."
Reading the acceptance speech that she had prepared backstage, she thanked her husband, chiropractor Jeremy Leung, for his “sacrifice” and for taking care of their two kids during her absence.
"It’s because of his encouragement that I was able to make this drama. I am very grateful for his sacrifice [as] it is really not easy for one [person] to take care of two kids. To me, he is one of a kind. And my kids… they enable me to grow and make me a better person. In my heart, I have already won the biggest prize because I have two precious children," she said.
When Linda was shooting Kids’, she revealed that it could be her “last drama” as she couldn’t bear to be away from her kids, Kelly, four, and Jared, two.
But never say never. “I might decide to work on another series 10 years later,” she said then.
