21 Jun – Hong Kong actress Kate Yeung recently admitted that she had to find other ways to make ends meet due to the lack of acting jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to her becoming a security guard.
As reported on HK01, the actress, known for movies like "The Eye 10" and "The Menu", was recently spotted patrolling a university campus in her security guard uniform, and revealed to the media that she previously worked at a florist and also as a waitress in a restaurant prior to that.
However, she had to find a different job after those businesses also closed down due to the pandemic.
The actress admitted that she didn't have much knowledge about the real world prior to her said job - seeing that she has been acting since she was 16, and that she enjoyed the said profession.
"Working as a security guard benefited me a lot. It enriches me and helps in my future acting work," she said.
However, Kate stressed that she is not retiring from her acting job, and that she will be rehearsing a new stage play in July and will be done with her security work at the end of this month.
The actress was last seen on the big screen in the Dayo Wong-starrer, "Agent Mr. Chan".
