Daniel Wu Juggles Career and Family
Since moving to San Francisco, Daniel Wu (吳彥祖) has been busy managing his career while looking after his family. But the 44-year-old actor still flies to Hong Kong to make special appearances, such as the Hong Kong Film Awards earlier.
Reunited with Gen-X Cops Cast
During the Hong Kong Films Awards, Daniel took the stage with fellow cast actors from popular movie, Gen-X Cops <特警新人類> including Nicolas Tse (謝霆鋒), Stephen Fung (馮德倫), and Sam Lee (李燦森). Although the movie was filmed 20 years ago, the actors developed a close friendship that endured through time. While the four actors felt nostalgic, Daniel teased the audience and asked who wants to watch another sequel of the movie. Seeing the four actors reunite on stage, the audience erupted with cheers.
Backstage, Daniel shared that he had a great time at the HKFA and was able to catch up with close friends such as Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健),Jordan Chan (陳小春), and Miriam Yeung (楊千嬅). However, just as the HKFA came to an end, Daniel promptly returned back to San Francisco to take care of his family.
Wanted to Raise Daughter in USA
Even as an international star, Daniel is committed to his family. Daniel rushed back to the United States to take his daughter, Raven, to school and care for his elderly father. Sharing his current life, Daniel said, “My daughter is six years old and I only want her to grow up healthy and happy. I regretted that I wasn’t able to learn Chinese myself, so I send her to study [Chinese]. I don’t want her to have regrets in the future.”
