Here’s How Much These Female HK Stars, Including Charmaine Sheh And Tavia Yeung, Make In Appearance Fees
Which one of them charges S$462K per event?
Have you ever wondered how much a celeb makes for a single appearance at an event?
Well, for starters, their fees heavily depend on their popularity and influence on the audience.
According to Chinese media, middle-aged female Hong Kong stars have higher asking fees, as their dramas and songs are well-loved by fans of many ages.
However, between these stars is also a wide range when it comes to their hefty pay checks.
Former TVB star Tavia Yeung, 43, is a familiar face for fans of popular Hong Kong dramas in the noughties.
Tavia tied the knot with actor Him Law in 2016, and the couple has two children, a two-year-old daughter and a son, who turns one next month.
The actress has since taken a step back from the spotlight to focus on her family, but still makes the occasional appearance in dramas and events.
She is reportedly paid S$35K for a single appearance, which is pretty reasonable, given her popularity.
Another star who has greatly reduced her workload to focus on family is Linda Chung, 38, who is now based in Vancouver. She has three kids, with her youngest born in October.
When she does make appearances though, Linda, who was said to be one of the highest paid TVB actresses back in her heyday, makes S$42K per event.
Tavia’s Beyond the Realm of Conscience co-star Charmaine Sheh, 47, is very well-liked amongst audiences and earns S$100K for every appearance.
Though her asking price is higher compared to other actresses, Charmaine is very much in demand and is often seen attending events. So, ka-ching?
So we all know that Cecilia Cheung, 42, knows how to make her money.
After all, the star became a live streaming sensation during her very first attempt at the endeavour.
Since appearing on the second season of Chinese competition show Sisters Who Make Waves, Cecilia has seen her popularity skyrocket again.
The mum-of-three reportedly charges S$289K per appearance and is said to only accept invitations to events that she deems big-scale enough.
Shanghai-born Hong Kong singer G.E.M, 31, is the youngest star on this list, but also the highest paid.
The iron-lunged G.E.M took the Mandopop world by storm with her 2012 hit song Pao Mo (泡沫), and went on to appear on a number of singing shows, including the second season of I Am A Singer, which cemented her popularity.
She is said to command a whopping S$462k per appearance.
