Jackson Lai Doesn’t Know If TVB Will Give Him Another Chance
After his cheating scandal with Ashley Chu (朱智賢) shook the entertainment industry, Jackson Lai (黎振燁) has made amends with his wife. The 34-year-old Mr. Hong Kong winner admits his mistake may cost him his acting career, and is uncertain if TVB will give him any future work.
Wife is Worried About Jackson
Jackson was seen stepping out with his pregnant wife today. When reporters asked Mrs. Lai whether she has forgiven her husband, she nodded, “Anyone would be angry if this happened to them, but taking into consideration our baby and our long history together,” she decided to put the past behind them.
Mrs. Lai didn’t hesitate to put in a good word for Jackson, “I hope the company will look at his efforts over the years, and give him another chance.”
No Longer in Touch with Ashley
In her press conference, Ashley claimed that she got too immersed in her onscreen role in Zombie <食腦喪B>, which prompted her to fall for Jackson. He said, “I believe I can withdraw [from my role], and go back to being my old self from a weeks ago.” Jackson added, “We weren’t together for too long.”
No longer in contact with Ashley since the paparazzi walked in on their secret date, Jackson feels confident that he will be able to forget her. “I’m wrong, and I shouldn’t give myself any excuses. The most important thing now is to make sure my wife’s emotional state and health are good.”
Asked whether he has been able to gain back his wife’s trust, Jackson said, “To be honest, can we act like nothing happened after only two to three days? We can’t just pretend it didn’t happen. I will give my wife some time to fully digest this incident before completely forgiving me.”
As to whether he has promised never to stray again in their marriage, Jackson said, “It’s not just a verbal promise; I have to use my actions to prove to my wife. Sometimes, making such a mistake once in a lifetime is enough. One time is already too much.”
With the couple expecting their son’s arrival in May, Jackson hopes the media will not target his wife because of his scandal. “My problems shouldn’t involve my wife. Everyone, please don’t bother my wife. Give her some space as she is ready to give birth soon.”
Ready to Disappear from TV Screens
It has been rumored that despite his ten-year contract and rising recognition levels after OMG You Honour <是咁的，法官閣下> and Airport Strikers <機場特警>, TVB is ready to “freeze” Jackson long-term due to his negative image. Admitting that TVB had arranged for him to attend a press conference yesterday, he could not attend because of his wife’s sudden stomach pains.
Ready to deal with the aftermath, Jackson said, “I think I may not have the chance to appear onscreen anymore. With my son’s birth, I can’t stop working though. Even if it’s physically exerting work, I don’t mind. Even if the company gives up on me, I can’t give up on myself.”
