Charlie Young, Who Lives In Singapore, Says Her 4-Year-Old Twin Boys “Suck All The Energy Out Of [Her]”
The Hongkong actress opens up about her mummy woes and how she felt very “helpless” when she had to take care of her sons on her own during the pandemic.
Hongkong actress Charlie Young’s new fantasy movie Hello! Tapir premieres in Taiwan on February 1 and during a recent interview to promote the film, Charlie, 47, shared that when she was shooting the movie in Yilan in 2019, she really missed her four-year-old twin boys, Aloysius and Ignatius, who were then only one.
With her Singaporean husband Khoo Shao Tze, and their kids in Singapore, Charlie, who plays the mother of a boy who goes in search of a mythical nightmare-eating creature, could only rely on video chats to see them.
"We would only video chat after I left the studio as I was afraid it would affect the shoot. I would call them when I got back to the hotel or when I was in the car. I missed them very much. Even now, sometimes when I am away from them for too long, I will miss them,” she said.
“Because of the pandemic, I didn’t take on any jobs in the past two years, so I spent a lot of time with my kids, and they became more clingy to me.”
