Anne Heung Does Not Mind Filming for TVB Again
Having disappeared from the entertainment world in 2008, Anne Heung (向海嵐) makes a high profile return when she accepted an endorsement deal for a beauty salon.
Support From Loletta Chu
Although Anne was a favorite since she was crowned Miss Hong Kong 1998 and highly promoted at TVB, her career eventually slowed in momentum. She was reduced to taking a supporting role as a third line actress in 2007’s The Building Blocks of Life <建築有情天>. Thinking TVB had given up on her, she began working in public relations at a company owned by Loletta Chu’s (朱玲玲) husband, Vincent Lo (羅康瑞), in Shanghai.
In 2008, just before Anne quit her acting career, she had no jobs lined up for four months. When she finally received a script, it was for a mere position as an executive, where Anne would film sitting most of the time. Anne was disappointed that the role offered little to enhance her abilities.
“At that time, I felt like I’ve reached the highest I could go, and that [TVB] didn’t allow me to further improve myself. We also headed towards different directions. I had the opportunity to do something else, so I decided to give it a try. A lot of friends told me to rethink my decision because I’ll be a girl travelling alone to somewhere far away. Luckily, Loletta and Vincent taught me a lot, and I got used to it. I worked in public relations for four years and it was fulfilling. But I still like working in the entertainment scene better, so I returned to Hong Kong, and agreed to film a commercial. If I have the opportunity, I would film a series again. Loletta said she would support my decision.”
Won’t Hesitate To Film For TVB Again
Despite leaving due to lack of acting opportunities, Anne does not rule out going back to TVB if she is offered a good script. However, to kick start her exposure again, Anne agreed to being a spokesperson for a beauty salon. At 39 years old, Anne daringly put on a low cut dress, showing her long legs and fit physique. Anne’s secrets to maintaining her body weight is to drink a lot of water daily, and to eat vegetarian meals one day per week to cleanse her body.
