As a highly promoted actress for TVB, Yammie Lam’s (藍潔瑛) beauty captured the hearts of many in the 1980s. With such attention, Yammie’s love life was complicated and throughout her career, she was romantically linked with 11 men.
In 1984, while Yammie was filming It’s a Long Way Home <家有嬌妻> with co-star, Tony Leung (梁朝偉), there were rumors that the couple’s chemistry on screen was turned into reality. However, that news immediately died down the following year when she partnered with Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) in The Possessed <六指琴魔>. Reporters caught Lawrence driving and picking up Yammie, which lead to speculations that the two became a couple off screen. However, she never admitted to either of these relationships.
It wasn’t until 1986, reporters learned that Yammie has been dating a screenwriter for three years. Unfortunately, her boyfriend committed suicide, which lead to a deterioration in her mental health.
Afterward, Yammie began dating billionaire Cheng Yu Tung’s (鄭裕彤) second son, Peter Cheng (鄭家成). The two were often seen together at clubs and a source shared that Peter was her ideal man. Rumors circulated that Yammie was the reason for Peter’s failed marriage with Cally Kwong (鄺美雲). She defended herself and said, “I did not steal someone’s husband. I only accepted him after he ended that relationship. I did no wrong in this situation.” However, this relationship didn’t last.
Yammie continued to be romantically linked with other men including Stephen Chow (周星馳) after filming A Chinese Odyssey <西遊記之月光寶盒>. In order to clear that misunderstanding, she introduced her Caucasian boyfriend to the public. The pair were even spotted attending Anita Mui’s (梅艷芳) birthday party together, but like her other relationships, it came to an end very quickly.
Yammie has also been linked to director Derek Yee (爾冬陞), race car driver Kenneth Gan (陸淦), actor Lau Siu Kwan (劉少君), advertising executive Tang Kin Ming (鄧建明), and retired lawyer David Tsang (曾權威). There were reports that both Tang and David proposed and even offered to help her during her bankruptcy, but in the end both men denied these claims.
The misfortunes in her love life have definitely taken a toll in her mental health, which could be a leading reason to Yammie’s sudden death.
