Taiwanese actress Ariel Lin 28 years old announced on Sunday that she will not be shooting any more television drama serials for the next two to three years, and that she has no plans to release a new music album, according to a report by Channel News Asia website. I May Not Love You might be the last TV work by Taiwanese actress Ariel Lin.
The fresh-faced starlet drops the bombshell by announcing that she won’t participate in any drama series starting from now.
The idol drama darling was the youngest winner of Best Leading Actress in a Television Series, when she took home the coveted award for her performance inThey Kiss Again at the 43rd Golden Bell Awards.
On top of her flourishing acting career, the 28-year-old also beefed up her resume by releasing two albums and starring in a stage play in Hong Kong.
Two years ago, Lin underwent a brain surgery and developed newfound understanding towards life after that.
Shooting television series is a mentally and physically taxing, she said, adding that she’s cutting down on her workload and has no plan of starring in drama series or releasing album in the future.
“I think that we should pursue our dream according to our health condition. I don’t have as much stamina as before and I would love to spend my time with the most important people in my life,” she said.
Taiwanese media speculated that “the most important people” in her life included her boyfriend Cheng Jia Yao and the decision was mostly driven by her wish to follow him to the U.S. to study there.
The actress played coy when asked whether she will go public if she ends up marrying her beau, merely saying: “I will only announce it if it’s something major and important.”
“Lately, my strength isn’t what it used to be. I still like acting, but I feel that I should pursue my dreams only as far as my health permits.”
Lin added: “I also want to give my time over to important people [in my life],” pointing out that her priorities in life have changed a lot since she made her showbiz debut at 18.
However, apart from her career plans, Lin is currently dating a man named Zhen Jia Yao, also revealed that she plans to have a low key wedding, away from media interruptions.
“All these years, I have satisfied the public’s expectations but on this matter (her wedding), I might have to be a little selfish,” said Lin.
