Sharon Chan Sacrifices Time with Son for “Heart of Greed 3”

For the opportunity to star in TVB’s blockbuster drama Heart and Greed <溏心風暴3>, also known as Heart of Greed 3, Sharon Chan (陳敏之) ended up sacrificing her time with her two-month-old son.

On Sunday, Sharon attended a charity event for Orbis, a health organization that fights blindness in children. The 38-year-old actress said she enjoys taking care of people and has been sponsoring children even before she married husband William Lui (雷偉信) in 2014.

Busy with the filming for Heart and Greed, Sharon hasn’t had the opportunity to take care of her two-month-old son Eddie, nicknamed “Lui Winter Solstice”. Sharon said, “Whenever I have free time I’ll take my phone out and look at his pictures. He’s still drinking milk. When I go home I will feed him, so I can spend as much time with him as I can.”

Unlike Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), who turned down Heart and Greed to take care of her daughter, Sharon decided to go for both. Balancing both family and career, Sharon only gets about two to three hours of sleep per night. “I haven’t filmed a drama in a year, and the opportunity to work in productions like Heart and Greed is rare and priceless. I really want to do it. I reached out to producer [Lau Ka-ho 劉家豪] for the opportunity, and I told him that I’ll keep fit and be prepared. The cast and crew are getting along so well. It gives me a warm feeling.”

After completing Heart and Greed, Sharon will take a break and bring her son, Eddie, overseas to a sunny island retreat. Asking if she would like to try for another child, Sharon said, “Let’s wait a few years. I would like a daughter.”

    It is not everyday she gets the chance to be in a huge production so it is of course career comes first for someone not at that level of A List yet. Moreover, she still gets to see her son that is at end of the day, not like shes away overseas. Moreover, any guilt of not having spent enough time with son can be rectified with baby no. 2.

    Sharon son is really so cute!!!! Having to make this choice must be hard but at least she still see him at nights. Once filming is done, she can spend more time with him.

    Although this might be a big opportunity, similar big production could come by again. Her 2 month old is only 2 month old once in his lifetime. It will never come back again. My favorite time with my baby was around 2-3 months, and it went by so fast. I spent it with her daily and I still wish there was more time.
