TVB actress, Vicky Chan (陳偉琪), shot to popularity through her sassy character, “Jenny” or “Young Mrs. Lung” in “Come Home Love – Lo and Behold” (愛．回家之開心速遞). Her character wasn’t always well received as it is now. However, just when she started to gain favor with the audience, in the July 5th episode, it showed “Jenny” leaving for the US, making the audience wonder if Vicky Chan left the series.
In this storyline, “Jenny” and her husband, “Max”, played by Hoffman Cheng (鄭世豪), overcome their differences, but “Jenny” ultimately decides to leave for the US to relieve herself of physical and mental fatigue. Before she left, she sent a message to “David”, played by Angela Tong (湯盈盈), saying, “With this time’s departure, I don’t know when I am coming back. I, Jenny Lui, am a wild horse roaming on the grassland. I am not a domesticated bird. I can’t be domesticated by someone. Before I discover my true self, I will not return.” As it turns out, the storyline was set to accommodate Vicky Chan’s temporary departure from the series.
While Vicky Chan might seem like an evil and sassy bad girl on screen, she is actually very multi-talented in reality. She was born in Canada, returned to Hong Kong at 10 years old, but later went back to Canada for school. She is fluent in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, and French. She started learning the harp, piano, basketball, and taekwondo at 6 years old. After winning first runner up in the “Miss Chinese (Vancouver) Pageant” when she was 20, she joined the Miss Hong Kong pageant and placed in the top 5.
She had recently competed in the “World Championship of Performing Arts” (WCOPA). She received gold awards for drama and modeling, silver awards for harp, singing, solo piano performance, and the gold award for “The Next Worldstar.” Because of her achievements, Vicky Chan is flying to Los Angeles in the middle of July to compete in the finals, representing the China-Hong Kong-Macau region. The competition lasts from July 12 – July 21. The champion wins the chance to appear in a Hollywood television show. Vicky Chan ultimately chose to temporarily leave the series for the competition, but her return date is unknown.
Hoffman Cheng and Vicky Chan both uploaded a video of them performing with the former singing, while the latter played the harp. Hoffman Cheng expressed his sentiments on IG saying, “With this departure, there will be a return. Don’t go to the US and not come back. I will miss you so much.” While Vicky Chan said, “I really don’t know when I am returning from the US. Don’t miss me too much. Cherish the bright moments we once had. Don’t miss me too much.”
Vicky Chan spoke to hk01.com and expressed, “I need to see how the crew will plan my return when I come back at the end of July. I don’t know the plans as of right now. It is a bit sad. A lot of fans also said it’s miserable. I don’t want to part with it either.”
