Selena Li Not Focused on Acting; Only Interested in Rich Heirs?

Selena Li (李詩韻) has been reportedly having an active love life since splitting up with Patrick Tang (鄧健泓), whom she dated for five years. The 33-year-old actress seems to be prioritizing love over career, as it was rumored she turned down filming offers in order to find time and interact with men. Selena entered a social circle of wealthy heirs, hoping to find a new boyfriend.

Reporters earlier caught Selena on a dinner date with 39-year old Lam Ka Shing (林嘉誠), the heir of a large watch enterprise. The two dined at a sushi parlor and left separately in hopes to avoid the paparazzi. Apparently, Lam Ka Shing drove an expensive car and is known to live in Grenville House located in the prestige Midland district.

Selena had been born into a wealthy family herself, but that soon changed as her father eventually went bankrupt. Since then, she allegedly worked her way into the social circle of wealthy heirs so she can marry a rich man. Past dating rumors included Yan Chai Hospital’s chairman, Wilfred Ng (吳守基), The Venetian Macau executive, Reggie Martin, and also the son of prominent horse trainer, Anthony S. Cruz (告東尼).

There was a time when Selena busied herself and filmed five dramas in a year, but now her workload has significantly dropped to two dramas per year. After completing Ghost Dragon of Cold Mountain <寒山潛龍> last October, she took a hiatus for half a year. A close source spilled, “Her goal isn’t even on acting, and she’s only in the television station to maintain her popularity so she can interact with rich heirs. She always makes so many excuses to reject filming offers, and even turns down opportunities to dine with TVB’s executives. All she does is wear revealing clothes and party with guys.”

      From the sounds and interpretation of the article………sounds like she’s kind of sleeping around and hoping to hook on to the first rich dude that will marry her.

      Sounds more like a gold-digging sluut….

      Selena pulled out of her makeup school after differences in opinion with her partner.

        What? No more business? So what is she doing with her time? Maybe another venture?

        Funn,
        Selena’s beauty school opened in 2010 and I believe she pulled out of the partnership around 2011. Aside from filming in Singapore and China, Selena appears to enjoy her leisure time snow boarding.

        Jayne,
        Thanks for the info and I did not know that Selena is no longer involved in that school. I was wondering what happened to her. I thought she was too focused on her school that she put acting to the side. I guess she is now ready to be back and got a raise in her new contract and all. That is great to hear…

    Not surprising at all, I think most actresses’ deep down might have that intention but of course will never admit it.
    SL does have a good looking face but I am sorry to say she can’t act. Very boring to watch her in any roles she’s done so far.

      I think so but of course not all of them are like that. I feel that is sad if they hope for that only. I have seen some that have married tycoons and have ended up in divorce just to struggle because they were so financially dependent.

    I feel that Selena hasn’t been very happy in the last few years since she never got any real award recognition with TVB. There were always newer actresses who triumphed over her once they entered the industry and it’s not because she’s a bad actress, but because she isn’t lucky enough. I think she at least expected herself to get some award (like Most Improved Actress) at TVB anniversaries in the years past, but it was sadly never her fate. Selena hasn’t really had a memorable role in years or even if TVB is willing to offer her filming opportunities, the roles just seems filler, boring, and maybe even auntie (that is Nancy Wu sometimes, but she has won both Most Improved and Best Supporting so she’s hopeful. Selena is known, but not very popular.). I think the last time I found her cute was in Fistful of Stances or something…

      Agree. Seleni Li was rather unlucky. She was nominated 19 times for either “Most Improved” or “Best Supporting Actress” awards, but never got it once. She may not be an amazing actress, but she is a lot better than those brand new ones who cannot act or speak proper Cantonese. However, TVB likes to promote new faces. She was cast as a 2nd lead, co-acting with Michelle Ye and Frankie Lam in a drama series named “The Herbalist’s Manual” in 2005. She did quite well in it.

      In a way, I feel sorry for Selena Li for her bad luck. Can’t blame her if she decides to pursue in somewhere else now.

      She’s probably also confused with where she stands. Like, she’s a borderline fadan. She was given first lead opportunities, but in male-oriented series. Many have said Nancy has it worst bc she has yet to lead a series, but Nancy’s roles are very diverse. Even in a Fistful, Natalie had the meatier role. So, I feel Selina has become a safe actress. She’s not terrible nor amazing. Maybe she needs a breakthrough like Kenneth’s YKT. Her last memorable role for me was Kat in FH2, and that was a guest-star role, lol

    The media likes to put public figures down. Once they started something negative about someone, they will make up stories to prove their point. It’s unfortunate that Selena has become their target. It’s not hard to see that the story is just a made up story. Anyone following Selena knows that Selena did not take six months off. Before she has finished her double roles in Cold Mountain Hidden Dragon, she started filming for her role as young Liza Wang. She took on the role of Jessica in Spouse For House in Singapore end of October through December. If the media cared about facts, they would know that Selena was busier than ever October through December. Further, if she kept turning down jobs, would TVB renewed her contract for five years doubling her salary? Selena might not be the best actress in Hong Kong but she played the roles given to her hard, big or small. She has improved a lot! If she does not care about her acting, what is the reason for her to stay in show business. Rich families do not like woman in show business. It will be easier to marry into rich family if she quits show business. All the men mentioned in the article has been proven not true. Mona has told the mafia that Selena did not try to steal her boy friend and her boyfriend also denied the rumor. Unfortunately, they kept bringing it up as fact.

    Yeah…the media should get their information correct first. She filmed the drama with Liza Wang after and also the Singaporean English Drama.

    Stop making stuff up.

    Why does she spell her aftername “Li” and not “Lee”? She’s from hk and they are spelling 李 Lee. If she wants to date rich men…..Selena, here I’m.. I’m still waiting for you my beauty.

      Some people in Hong Kong do spell their last nameS 李 as “LI”, but most people adopt the spelling “LEE”.
