Winning viewers over as android robot Abby in the currently airing series AI Romantic <智能愛人>, many felt that actress Ali Lee (李佳芯) delivered another Best Actress-worthy performance in the challenging role. Sadly, her blossoming career luck did not spill over to her personal life – as signs of her relationship woes with longtime boyfriend Danny Chan (陳炳銓) emerged in May; this was later confirmed when Ali admitted her back-to-singlehood status.
Eagerness to Tie the Knot Kindled Dormant Insecurities?
Following swirling rumors that she was being pursued by a new suitor, the 38-year-old finally addressed her breakup on a recent interview. Ali shared that after a career high of winning Best Actress award for her role in 2018’s Who Wants A Baby? <BB來了>, she was keen to take the next step into marriage, and therefore proposed to then-boyfriend Danny about committing to spend the rest of their lives together. However, this ironically led to much tension in the relationship as the couple could not see eye to eye on marriage, and eventually went splitsville, after seven years of dating. As she had been filming AI Romantic then, Ali numbed the pain of the breakup by throwing herself fully into work.
Talks About Her Ex
Calling her ex-boyfriend a “good man,” she thinks that “being in a relationship is something [that’s] between two persons, there shouldn’t be a [perception of] inequality,” and feels that their mutual friends would understand why she loves him. Adding that Danny is reliable, kind-hearted, a good teacher and listening ear, Ali felt that their relationship would turn out even stronger were they able to enter the marriage phase together, only it was a pity they could not take it to the next stage.
Although they were not able to spend the rest of their lives together, Ali remains friends and keeps in contact with Danny, and recently got him to share his opinions on the production aspects of a microfilm she was working on. Despite the heartbreak, Ali concluded that she is still keen on marriage, and looks forward to starting a new relationship.
