Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung has proven that nothing can come in the way of her work, not even a power outage.

Cheung was recently in Hangzhou, China, to sell goods on a live stream when a thunderstorm caused a blackout.

Instead of ending the session, the 43-year-old remained undeterred and continued to work with the support of her crew, who switched on their phone flashlights to help Cheung finish the last 15 minutes of her live stream.

However, the misfortune continued to unfold when Cheung got trapped in the parking lot due to the power outage which caused the automatic car park barrier, or gantry, to not open.

Reports from Hong Kong media revealed that Cheung and her team waited for 30 minutes until a staff member finally arrived with a chainsaw to saw the gantry off.

A witness to the incident noted that throughout the whole ordeal, the King Of Comedy (1999) star didn't show any attitude.

Instead, she remained patient and even commended the staff for their prompt response and professionalism.

Cheung is known for her strong work ethic.

In 2021, the actress accidentally misread the price of a product, causing viewers to pay less than the actual amount.

Rather than asking her audiences to pay for her blunder, Cheung honoured the quoted price and personally covered the remaining costs, which reportedly amounted to 50,000 yuan (RM32,908).
