Hawick Lau Understands the Burdens of a Father
Veteran actor Lau Dan (劉丹) once confessed in an interview that he had neglected his family due to his strong commitment to his acting career. His son Hawick Lau (劉愷威), who will soon be a father himself, expressed that he understood the burdens his father had to carry at the time. “He had a lot of responsibility and I knew he was going through a rough time. As his son, I never felt like he owed me anything.”
Hawick’s wife, Chinese actress Yang Mi (楊冪), is currently several months pregnant. The soon-to-be parents are extremely thrilled to start the next chapter of their life. “I have confidence that I will be able to balance both work and family,” said Hawick.
The 39-year-old actor has just completed the filming of his new drama, Lady and Liar <千金女賊> and attended a press conference for the series several days ago in Shanghai. His costar Tiffany Tang (唐嫣), who is best friends with Yang Mi, was the couple’s bridesmaid. Portraying Tiffany’s love interest in the drama, Hawick expressed that he felt like he had sinned after he kissed Tiffany’s lips.
Asked about Yang Mi’s pregnancy, Hawick happily said that she has gotten a lot cuter and prettier after becoming pregnant. He said, “When she wants something, she would point at her stomach and say, ‘It’s not me that wants it. It’s the baby!’ The taste buds of pregnant women are always changing. She would suddenly want to eat pizza and then she would eat roasted duck for three straight weeks.”
Hawick revealed that he had turned down the offers of several dramas and will be resting for a few months so he and Yang Mi can prepare for the birth of their first child. “I have two dramas airing in March, and I will be working on promoting them. After that, I will take a break and wait for our baby’s arrival.”
