Singaporean actor, Lawrence Wong (王冠逸), has been gaining popularity ever since acting as “Hai Lan Cha” in Chinese series, “Story of Yanxi Palace” (延禧攻略). He was in Hong Kong yesterday to attend a promotional event for Italian brand, Salvatore Ferragamo. When asked if he celebrated his recent award at the 2018 Chinese American Film Festival with once rumored girlfriend and “Yanxi” co-star, Qin Lan (秦嵐), he said, “No, we didn’t celebrate. I was sick at the time. I was throwing up and had diarrhea before I went on stage. I also had a high fever, so I wasn’t able to really absorb the feeling of winning an award at the time. I am actually happy now.”
When asked about Qin Lan also getting an award, Lawrence Wong congratulates her and also expresses his gratitude to her. He says, “I have to especially thank her. It was her who brought me from Singapore to China. She was the one who gave me the opportunity to participate in this series. I am very lucky to always have her wholeheartedly helping me on this journey.
Lawrence Wong and Qin Lan were once rumored to be dating, however both had denied the claims. It turns out Qin Lan is actually Lawrence Wong’s boss, which is why they are quite close.
