Grace Wong recently shot to popularity after starring as Fa Man in A Fist Within Four Walls, but her road did not come easy.
According to Asian Pop News, Grace revealed her naked back in a scene, and even put on a sexy dance in a recent episode of the drama.
Many fans were perplexed, “Why is she only raising to fame now?”
It turns out that Grace has a rough path in her acting career.
She started receiving only HK$10,000 monthly salary from her Miss Hong Kong contract, but her monthly rental fee was already HK$12,000!
Grace said, “I really thought of sleeping on the street!”
Entering the showbiz for 9 years, Grace has her ups and downs, and has thought of giving up.
She said, “Someone once said that my acting was exaggerating. I thought of returning to the States at that time, but I could not leave since I had signed the contract. As such, I suffered from depression and eating disorder.”
It was fortunate that Grace’s friends Candice Chiu and Janet Chow brought her to a church, and she regained her confidence. She also met a church friend whom became her godmother.
“She took me in when I was at my most difficult time. She gave me a roof over my head, and solved all my financial difficulties.”
