On Tuesday, Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) attended an event to promote the TVB drama Ratman to the Rescue <過街英雄> and shared experiences of filming her upcoming drama Seven Princess <七公主>. Going through long nights and exhausting days, Priscilla lost a total of ten pounds over the course of several weeks.
“I didn’t realize it until this morning when I stepped on the scale,” she said. “The weight loss was intentional at first. Playing a lawyer I wanted to have a stronger image, but I wasn’t expecting to lose that much. This role, I’ve come to realize, is actually really stressful, and the stress got me to drop even more weight. I didn’t realize it myself until a colleague pointed out to me that I got skinnier.” Priscilla added that she plans on seeing a traditional Chinese medical doctor so she can better manage her health.
Pointing out that dramatic weight losses could affect one’s pregnancy and ability to conceive, Priscilla expressed that she and husband, Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), are not in a hurry to become parents. “Let nature take its course,” she said. “We never had plans in the first place. (Does that mean you guys aren’t using protection?) I’ve been really busy recently. We’ve all been. He’s also working. I want to focus on work first. I’m not in my best shape right now. If we are talking about [having kids], then I must take care of my own health first.”
