For some, starting a family can be something they have dreamed of doing all their lives. This, however, is not the case for TVB star Roxanne Tong.
The idea of possibly becoming a mother came while Tong was filming her upcoming TVB drama Other People's Money. In the drama, the Hong Kong actress portrays a mother raising her five-year-old son. Sharing some details on the series to hk.on.cc, she said that her character was manipulated by a past lover when she was in university and became pregnant during that time.
Pondering on the idea of motherhood, the 34-year-old said: "In the past, I was scared of children but now many of my friends are parents so I'm used to seeing them around." However, she is not keen on becoming a mother herself as she sees it as a big burden to bear.
The star admitted that her feelings towards having children may change if and when she eventually becomes a mother but is terrified at the idea of it. "I'm afraid that they would become a mini me!" she jokingly said.
Tong also expressed that it takes some patience when it comes to acting with children, but praised the young actor who stars alongside her as her son due to his ability to remember his lines very well.
The actress and fellow TVB actor Kenneth Ma went public with their relationship in June 2020 and it wasn't long before rumours started spreading of an engagement. She was quick to deny this in an interview, stating there are no marriage plans since they have only dated for a short while.
