Li Yapeng to retire from acting
The Chinese actor and husband of Chinese diva Faye Wong plans to focus on working behind the scenes as he announces his departure from showbiz as an actor
He discussed his recent movie with Chinese actress Xu Jinglei, a movie continuation of the drama series, Cherish our Love Forever, and says that it will be his “last movie production” as an actor.
“I will not be filming anymore movies. I have been filming a movie each year for the past decade and have strictly followed this regime. I have already treated this as something of the past and I now have a new goal ahead of me. This is going to be my motivation towards working hard in that direction,” he revealed.
When asked if he plans to fully focus on the Smile Angel Foundation, which is a Beijing-based foundation founded by Faye and him to help children born with clefts, he politely refuted the suggestion and said, “Faye will be working in front of the cameras while I’ll work from behind the scenes.”
