Linda Chung Announces Departure from TVB; Wants to Focus on New Baby
Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) is pregnant! The 34-year-old actress has officially confirmed her pregnancy via Instagram, sharing a photo of the family of three as well as another Linda’s sonogram. Linda has also announced that she will leave TVB in order to rest during her second pregnancy and take care of her family.
The glowing mother wrote, “I am pregnant again! I am thankful that God has blessed us with another opportunity to become parents. When Kelly found out that she’ll become an older sister, she shouted ‘Wow!’”. When reached for comments, Linda openly talked about her pregnancy. “This second pregnancy is a little tougher. It’s very different from when I was pregnant with Kelly. This time, the pregnancy symptoms are much stronger and I am more tired. I throw up often too. Regardless, this is a happy occasion. It’s a natural path.”
Ends 13-Year Work Relationship with TVB
Linda also took the opportunity to announce her official departure from TVB through her Instagram post. After winning Miss Chinese International 2004, Linda entered showbiz and has been with TVB for 13 years. Linda reflected, “TVB’s safe house protected me from the wind and rain. They taught me many things and gave me the time and opportunity to gain experiences and grow. They allowed me to learn about myself and who I am as a person, such as what my talents are and what my true calling is. They also gave me the courage to present my true self to people in front of me. Through this, I’ve learned how to communicate with the audience.”
In those 13 years, Linda slowly climbed the ranks to become one of TVB’s highly promoted fadans. This was no easy feat, and Linda credited many special people in her life who have helped achieve this. One of such people is Virginia Lok (樂易玲), whom Linda referred to as a mother figure. “You’ve always protected me. You would often tell me that I am too obedient and too naïve. You didn’t want anything to taint my innocence and lead me down the wrong path or ruin my image. Thank you!” Linda also thanked Catherine Tsang (曾勵珍), who provided Linda with her first filming opportunity. “You chose to put your faith in a newcomer like me. You gave me a lot of experiences and motivation. It allowed me to reach a new limit that I didn’t even think I could achieve. Thank you!”
Though Linda expressed that she will definitely miss acting, she has decided to place her family first. Linda and her husband hope to be physically, mentally, and emotionally present when welcoming their new baby and growing their family.
