Hong Kong actress Myolie Wu recently switched from being a television artiste at TVB to movie artiste, after joining movie producer Stephen Shiu Jr's company, reported Asian E-News Portal.
Before the announcement, Wu admitted the persistent questioning from the media about the next step in her career gave her tremendous pressure, but she received support and advice from her boyfriend Philip Lee in her move to join Shiu's company.
Said Wu: "The news reports that he (Lee) invests in nightclubs, but he actually works as a headhunter for a company. He has more than 10 years' experience and helps me to analyse (my next move), but leaves it to me to make a decision."
When asked if she will step into the movie market, Wu admitted the company did promise her a movie role, and she will be filming the series in Mainland China.
But speaking Mandarin was a challenge for her, despite having a solid foundation in the language.
Thankful for boyfriend's support
With a succesful career and love life now, Wu expressed her gratitude to her boyfriend and said: "Being my boyfriend is a lot of pressure as there are more rumours to contend with as I am an artiste and this is unfair to him.
"I am thankful for his understanding and we can face it together," said Wu.
As usual, questions about marriage were not far from reporters' minds.
When asked if marriage is one of the considerations when signing a new contract, she replied: "Definitely, especially at my age now."
As to whether she would get married by year end, she said: "I just signed the contract with new company not long ago. I will inform everybody once (the wedding date) is finalised."
