Actor Marco Ngai has experienced some set backs the past few years due to issues in his personal life. The pandemic added to his woes as it affected the Hong Kong star’s work opportunity.
Ngai shared in a radio interview recently that he had been affected greatly by everything so much so he that he had to visit a psychologist. He even contemplated taking his own life after gaining no income for the past year and a half.
“I thought about suicide as it felt so sad. My daughter saved me because I remembered that she can’t be without a father, so I had to put my foot down,” he said.
The former TVB actor had to step up as a father after ending his 12-year marriage to Zhang Lihua. Though it was never confirmed by either party, it was rumoured that the divorce was due to Zhang, who is 20 years younger than Ngai, who was caught cheating.
However, Ngai stated that no one was right or wrong in the divorce. “We were actually happy before. The divorce was due to people changing and I changed too much,” he added.
He also admitted that it may have been due to him spending too much time being a father and neglected his duties as a husband.
The 53-year-old also mentioned that in the future. he is open to finding a new companion who does not necessarily see the need to get married. When he asked his 11-year-old daughter, Jessica, about this plan, she jokingly replied: “No, you can’t. You can only love me!”
