With Myolie Wu‘s contract ending in July, reports claim that she will leave TVB after 16 years.
According to Jayne Stars, recently, Myolie was said to have signed a three-year contract with Stephen Shiu Jr.’s company for a whopping $25 million HKD.
Using her second runner-up win in Miss Hong Kong 1999 as a stepping-stone for her acting career, Myolie was quickly recognized as one of the fastest rising stars at the time.
After more than a decade as one of TVB’s most popular artistes, Myolie won TV Queen with her performance in Curse of the Royal Harem.
In recent years, Myolie’s stardom increased in Mainland China. Her recent Mainland variety show, Wonderful Friends, was well-received and brought many new job opportunities in China.
Many entertainment companies such as Huayi Brothers, Now TV, and Richard Li’s ATN Talent have attempted to sign Myolie.
However, after a year of contemplation, Myolie allegedly picked Stephen Shiu, Jr.’s China 3D Digital Entertainment .
Stephen reportedly offered Myolie $25 Million HKD for a three-year contract, in which $12.5 Million HKD will be paid in advance.
Stephen also promised to produce movies especially tailored for Myolie, as well as negotiate high-quality Mainland drama offers.
Earning roughly 250,000 RMB per episode for her new Mainland series Adoption, Myolie is already spending more time in China despite her outstanding TVB contract.
In response to her signing rumors with Stephen Shiu, Jr., Myolie said,
“What? My contract hasn’t ended yet! I won’t respond to anything during this time period!”
