When it comes to being parents, your children become your first priority, and this is exactly the case for Hawick Lau (劉愷威).
The Hong Kong actor and son of Lau Dan (劉丹), who was at one point considered to be one of the hottest actors Chinese TV industry, has stayed quiet for much of late 2017. His last big project was the modern drama Heirs <繼承人>, which aired in early 2017. He last updated his Weibo in November 2017, and his personal studio Hawick’s Studio updated only twice since the New Year’s.
His wife Yang Mi (楊冪), on the other hand, is once again expected to have a busy year, with multiple projects and endorsements confirmed for the coming months.
Hawick’s quiet activity on social media has concerned fans. There was even speculation that the 43-year-old is retiring from the industry, but most fans have come to a consensus that the former TVB actor has slowed down his workload to take care of his daughter, nicknamed “Little Sticky Rice.”
Netizens pointed out that Yang Mi’s popularity and better development in the entertainment industry has forced Hawick to take a step back to allow Yang Mi to continue work while he stays at home to raise their daughter.
Hawick has once mentioned in an televised program that he loves everything about Yang Mi, except that she is always too busy. Nonetheless, Yang Mi has said in an interview that both she and Hawick respect each other’s careers.
