21 Jul – If it is up to Simon Yam, he would rather have daughter Ella stay far away from showbiz than become an actor like himself.
As reported on Mingpao, the actor, who was asked about his teen daughter’s latest modelling job for Vogue Taiwan, said that he has no issues with the 14-ear-old modelling from time to time, but not to the extent that it became her career at such a young age.
“If she chooses to do this when she is older, I would support her. But right now, school would come first,” he said.
However, Simon admitted that Ella’s transition into becoming a model is not surprising, seeing that she takes after her mother, Qi Qi, who is also a model.
“But I won’t encourage her to do movies. It’s not good for a young girl to work all night and lack any sleep. Let me be the only actor in the family,” he said.
The actor also added that he selfishly wanted Ella to be by his side so that he would be able to see her all the time.
