The 35 year old Malaysian native, Vivian Yeo (楊秀惠), had recently given birth and is currently doing her confinement period in Malaysia right now. Aside from giving birth, she has been in the news lately for her performance in “Brutally Young” (十八年後的終極告白) and got dragged into a scandal because of her sister and brother-in-law. However, she just announced that she is leaving TVB after 16 years with the company.
Vivian Yeo signed with TVB after joining the 2004 Miss Chinese International Pageant. She starred as the lead in her first series “Sunshine Heartbeat” (赤沙印記＠四葉草.2). She achieved some breakthrough in her career in 2018’s “The Learning Curve of a Warlord” (大帥哥) and now with “Brutally Young”, which is said to be her last project with TVB.
Aside from her acting career, Vivian Yeo manages a successful beauty spa business. It’s rumored Vivian Yeo had wanted to pay the damages to terminate her contract with TVB ahead of schedule so she can focus on her family and business. However, TVB reportedly refused. During this time, Vivian Yeo got married and had a baby. In addition to the outbreak, her work load has been severely impacted. As a result, it’s reported TVB finally agreed to let Vivian Yeo terminate their contract ahead of schedule and pay the damages.
Vivian Yeo made the announcement on IG saying, “Thank you everyone for your support all along. My contract with TVB had already ended a while ago. Firstly, I want to thank TVB for always giving me so many opportunities. This is company I’ve been working for since I came to Hong Kong. I’m very grateful. In these two years, TVB has arranged a lot of good characters for me. They also gave me a lot of jobs to fly overseas to do travel shows and hosting shows, but because I really couldn’t coordinate schedules, so I couldn’t participate. I feel really bad. Extremely thankful to TVB and all my colleagues for helping me all these years. Please forgive me for not being able to thank each one of you personally. I am extremely thankful. I will continue working hard, take care of my family and business. I hope everyone continues to support me.”
