Actress Fala Chen stepped out of the media glare in 2014 when she enrolled in the well-known Juilliard School in New York.
But on May 18, Chen was once again in the spotlight when she married technology entrepreneur Emmanuel Straschnov in Paris.
She met the Frenchman while she was pursuing a four-year Master of Fine Arts in Drama degree at Juilliard. Chen, who first cut her teeth with Hong Kong broadcaster TVB, graduated last year.
Chen, 37, celebrated her big day in Paris by posting: “Thank you all so much for being there on May 18 and to help us create this special memory. I’m very lucky to have you all in my life. Most of all, I have to thank my parents and… Emmanuel for his love. .”
Her husband, who has worked in China, spoke at the wedding in Mandarin, promising to take care of her forever.
It is her second marriage. She split up with businessman Daniel Sit in 2013.
Sit told the media that he wished her well but added that he would not send her a gift or attend the Paris wedding.
Meanwhile, Chen looks set to stay in the spotlight, given that she has joined a stellar cast, including Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant, to shoot HBO mini series The Undoing. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
