Cecilia Choi fails to get visa to fly to Taiwan for new drama

24 Mar –Cecilia Choi recently revealed that she had to withdraw from a good project in Taiwan after failing to fulfil all the requirements needed for her travel.

As reported on Mingpao, the actress who spoke to the media to promote the Hong Kong Film Awards recently, shared that she was originally scheduled to fly to Taiwan at the end of February to start work on a new drama.

"Because of the pandemic, even if I am going to Taiwan, I have to undergo a 14-day quarantine first. But the production said that they were willing to wait, so I decided to do it," she said.

Unfortunately, Cecilia said that she had to withdraw from the project after failing to get a visa because of the pandemic.

"It was really sad, because it was a really good script and a great character," she added.

Cecilia also revealed that she felt a bit disappointed that the Hong Kong Film Awards will not be holding a live event this year due to the situation, especially since this is her first time being nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in "Beyond the Dream".

"It is a rare thing for me to get shortlisted. But I understand the decision, since it is related to the issue of social security as a whole," she added.
