Currently a freelance artist, former TVB actress Maggie Cheung (張可頤) has expressed her interest in working with different entertainment companies and are exploring her options. Recently, Maggie appeared on a Cable Television food program hosted by former TVB artist, Mimi Lo (羅敏莊).

On the show, Maggie shared with Mimi her current career direction while discussing about food and lifestyles. In 2005, Maggie was diagnosed with thyroiditis and had to put her career on hold for two years in order to recover. Maggie explained that she has become much more cautious about the food she eats and drinks, revealing that she often cooks up her own fish maw, drinks more water and eats more organic foods.

Maggie primarily pursues a healthy “free and natural” lifestyle. She said, “I filmed a lot of mainland Chinese dramas a while back, and one day [the staff] treated me a dish of water beetles. The appearance is not pleasant at all, but I dared myself to try it anyways. Actually, foods don’t need to be very luxurious. Some genuine and authentic foods like [the beetles] can be very special too. In addition, the [type of] food comes second, as it is more important to share it with close family and friends.”

Currently single, Maggie is enjoying her freedom. “I really enjoy acting and having to experience different characters. It’s as if I have walked different lives. My most memorable experience was when shooting an earlier mainland Chinese drama. The filming was laborious but I feel very lucky to have come across my character. If only I can do another heart-rending character and story, I’d have no regrets.”

Dayo Wong (黃子華) and Kristal Tin’s (田蕊妮) TV King and Queen wins this year have caused some debate. As a former TV Queen herself, Maggie was asked on her thoughts about the winners and nominees. She said, “Don’t take offense. When it comes to these awards, it really relies on luck. Of course, awards are a sense of encouragement for the actors, as it acknowledges hard work.”

She further added her thoughts about what it means to be a competent actress, saying, “An actor must have to go through experiences in order to portray his or her role thoroughly and vividly. Maturity in your soul and thoughts will come to a maturity in acting. If you are stuck at one level, then your acting will always be on the surface. It will come off as superficial. On the other hand, if you have the experience, even one expression and one look in the eye can bring more depth to the character.”

      Don’t believe such rubbish. She’s been in the industry long enough to know not to commit career suicide. She probably has many friends (male & female) and her freedom & money too. How nice!!!

      Another meaning for “I’m enjoying my single status” is that she has no men interested in her……..simple as that.

      She’s old and past her prime……lots of young hot chicks men would prefer over this woman.

        Lots of men (and gold-diggers) are interested in successful women (young & old). Just an example …

        That is not neccessarily true because I have known women who do get liked by men and are attractive and all, but their fate either has not come, they are too successful, too picky, have unrealistic standards,etc… Therefore, it does not really mean that no one wants them. It is true that some just like being single since you get a lot more freedom to do things you want and are more independent. I do admit that once a woman gets past a certain age and are still not taken, then the younger men do want women who are younger, but it really depends too.

        Maybe she is one of those people who are just happy in her own company? There are many confirmed bachelors like this and no one ever faults them, bot women are labeled old maids and nobody wants them?

        Double standards, stinks.

        @iampheng,
        Agreed, this is a form of “female suppression” brought on by a male-driven society and it’s on its way out as women become more independent, less brainwashed and pave their own paths. Most women are already independent. They just need to break those invisible mental chains that bind women into serving/catering to men.

    Maggie was never my ‘cup of tea’ in terms of actresses, but after rewatching a few of her TVB series in recent months, I’m starting to appreciate her acting more. Glad to hear that Maggie is enjoying life and taking things more at ease.

    I actually haven’t watched any of her Mainland series (and don’t really plan to), but I’m definitely looking forward to watching the HKTV series she filmed (from a cast and storyline perspective, that series sounds quite refreshing). Now that HKTV is relaunching and starting up production again, I hope that her series gets to see the light of day very soon.

      I did not watch many of her TVB series but did watch many of her China series and she is a really good actress. I highly recommend her China series.
