Louisa So to Leave TVB: “I Want More Freedom”

Celebrating her 49th birthday with the cast and crew of The Forgotten Valley <平安谷之詭谷傳說>, Louisa So (蘇玉華) confirmed that this is her last TVB series. Louisa said, “I want to give myself more freedom and space to do different things.”

After watching the premiere episode together on Monday night, the cast of The Forgotten Valley went out to dinner and surprised Louisa with a birthday cake. On the actual day of her boyfriend, Louisa will attend an acting class with her boyfriend. He will cook an Alaskan King Crab meal for her at home.


Louisa confirmed that she will be leaving TVB for an indefinite amount of time in order to pursue other interests. However, she ended her working relationship with TVB on good terms and expressed that there may be an opportunity for her to return in the future.

On her upcoming work projects, Louisa revealed that she will be filming music video. She laughed that the first time she filmed a music video was when she was still in acting school. Also she will be going to Beijing to speak before a group of acting school students. Although she has given lectures in Hong Kong before, this is the first time Louisa will be doing so in Beijing. Afterward, Louisa will be doing voice dubbing for a cartoon.

Katy Kung is Worried About Love Life?

Close friends with Louisa, Katy Kung (龔嘉欣) organized the dinner celebration last minute. However, Grace Chan (陳凱琳), Zoie Tam (譚凱琪), and Jess Shum (沈卓盈) were unable to make it. As the only single woman in the group, Katy said the other women were worried about her love life and offered to introduce some men to her.

When asked if she bought peach blossoms to give her love life a lucky boost, Katy laughed and said every time she buys them, she  transfers the luck to others instead. Katy exclaimed, “For example, my makeup artist helped me move my peach blossom tree last year and now she is married. This time, I’m not letting anyone touch my peach blossom tree! However, I hope that I’ll be able to get Grace’s red packet soon.”

Asked if Katy meant Grace will be getting married soon, Katy said “I meant work red packet, but I’m sure it won’t be long for the three girls. I think I’m going to end up being a bridesmaid three times first.”

  1. while i think she’s a good actress, i am not sure what the rave about her is all about. i remember watching her back in the 90s but she was never big or had any break through roles. what’s the fuss all about these days with her leaving?

    1. @m0m0 Louisa may not have had any breakout roles, but she’s always been a great actress in my book. Yes, I see it as a big deal that she is leaving because she was one of the few versatile actresses left at TVB who could take on virtually any type of role and be convincing in it (this seems to be a common trait with all of the HKAPA graduates). With TVB severely lacking in versatile actresses in lead roles nowadays, someone like Louisa leaving will definitely impact them.

  2. Louisa hasn’t ever had a crazy breakout role, but she’s been a great support over the years. In her younger days, she was beautiful (still is, but more mature beauty.) I still remember her in JTTW and The Battle Against Evil (she was BEAUTIFUL in there.) I will miss seeing her face on the small screen, but I’m sure she’ll come back and do collabs with TVB eventually.

  3. Not surprised as she hasn’t been given a great chance or best role to bloom herself. Just watched The Forgotten Vally for 2 episodes but i like her acting.

  4. Good on her and all the best. If one feels ‘stuck in a career or work’, it is time to move on. Not easy. Needs a brave heart to face the unknown and take on the risks.

  5. She’s a classic. She is the kind of actress who do not need to fight for any awards yet everyone recognise that she is a great actress. I’ll miss watching her acting.
