8 Apr – It was reported that TVB actress Fala Chen will not renew her contract with the company, stating that she will be taking an acting class in New York instead.
According to Popular Asians, with her contract with TVB deemed to expire in May, rumour has it that TVB has offered her an 8-digit sum. However, the actress has determined not to renew her contract.
When asked whether she has set her sights outside of TVB once her contract expires, Fala declined to elaborate but stated, "At this stage, nothing is settled yet. I've been at TVB for 8 years, and I hope we will maintain a good relationship. There were no unhappy circumstances. It's just that I've filmed so many dramas, and I want to use this time for a break."
About her decision to take acting class, Fala revealed, "I hope to gain a new perspective in the acting field. In recent years, I discussed acting with co-workers and read many books. However, reading and actually filming are very different."
"I've always wanted to leave the film set and watch different performance platforms to improve myself. I've mentioned this to the company before. I've planned this for several years and have mentioned this to the company before, so I want to take this chance to refresh myself," the actress concluded.
