Ariel Lin, Cecilia Liu and other low-key actresses who landed rich husbands

16 March 2016 / 7 months 1 week ago

Mainland Chinese actress Coco Lyu (呂一) recently tied the knot with mainland Chinese actor Benny Qian (錢泳辰), who hails from a prosperous family and owns many restaurants.

According to Jayne Stars, the news spurred netizens to notice some other notoriously low-key actresses, such as Cecilia Liu (劉詩詩), who have also been fortunate enough to land well-to-do husbands.

Best known for portraying Maertai Ruoxi in the time-traveling drama, Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步驚心>, Cecilia has always been labeled low-profile for such a high-demand actress. She is seldom embroiled in scandals, and she is not the type to overhype herself or her projects.

On March 20, she and Taiwanese actor Nicky Wu (吳奇隆), 17 years her senior, will hold their wedding ceremony on Bali Island. Nicky owns six personal companies, two studios, and three patents, but he has admitted that Cecilia is his “big boss.”

Positive news has often followed Taiwanese actress Ariel Lin (林依晨) since her chubby-faced beginnings in Taiwanese idol dramas, causing some netizens to dub her “the goddess of zero negative comments.”

In 2014, she announced her marriage to businessman Charles Lin (林于超), whom she had met at a mutual friend’s wedding and whose family property exceeds 100 million RMB.

Love isn’t always smooth sailing for low-key actresses, however, as Taiwanese singer/actress Rene Lin (劉若英) can attest. Known for her sweet-tempered personality and her artistic elegance, Rene experienced many tumults in her love life, having dated singer Bobby Chen (陳升) and director Chen Kuo-fu (陳國富).

It wasn’t until Rene was 42 years old that she met her Prince Charming, Zhong Xiaojiang (鍾小江), a member of the banking industry and owner of two companies.

The aforementioned Coco Lyu should not be forgotten. Although she has yet to hit it big with a particular role, the 32-year-old actress has appeared in well-known dramas like Palace <宮鎖心玉> and Xuan Yuan Sword: Scar of the Sky<軒轅劍之天之痕>. Despite having collaborated with Wallace Huo (霍建華) and Hu Ge (胡歌), she has not been dogged by any negative rumors.

It was not until 2015 that she revealed she was in a relationship with Benny Qian, who proposed to her on a luxurious yacht with a five-carat diamond ring.

Taiwanese singer/actress Vivian Chen (陳德容) is another Chiung Yao favorite who found her Mr. Perfect in real life. Often portraying the pitiful characters in her dramas, Vivian quietly married real estate mogul Austin Wang (王贊策) in 2011.

Afterward, she opted to appear in fewer dramas and movies, spending more of her time traveling between America, Taiwan, and Shanghai with her husband.

With her girl-next-door temperament, mainland Chinese actress Jenny Zhang(張嘉倪) became famous overnight when she was handpicked by writer Chiung Yao (瓊瑤) to star in the 2007 drama Dreams Link <又見一簾幽夢>.

In spite of her sudden fame, Jenny avoided many of the typical scandals, even after her painful breakup with actor Du Chun (杜淳).

In 2015, she accepted a proposal from her boyfriend, who is an executive board member of a production company.
