Wallace Huo: Ruby Lin and I complement each other

Wallace Huo also reveals why he did not wish to take on the role of Qian Long Emperor in Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace initially

Wallace Huo: Ruby Lin and I complement each other
Famously reticent actor Wallace Huo is known for keeping his personal life out of the spotlight and refrains from sharing too much about

his wife and their one-and-a-half-year-old daughter nicknamed ‘Little Dolphin’. Once, he even flared up at a passerby for secretly filming his daughter and had demanded for the photos to be deleted on the spot.

In a recent interview to promote his currently-airing Chinese palace drama series, Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace, Wallace made a rare exception to talk about his relationship with Ruby.

The 38-year-old shared that he and Ruby are like a couple who “complement each other”, and he is especially fond of his wife’s straightforward personality and sense of justice.

The first-time father also shared that he couldn’t stop crying when he carried their daughter ‘Little Dolphin’ for the first time because “I’ve never felt like there was anything that truly belonged to me in this lifetime… but in that very moment, I felt as if I finally had something that belonged to me.”

During the interview, Wallace also commented about rumours that he was brought in to replace Hong Kong actor Tony Leung Chiu-wai, whose wife, Carina Lau, had rejected the role as she was “dissatisfied” with the two lead actresses of Ruyi.

He, too, was reluctant to take on the role of Qian Long Emperor initially, said Wallace.

Wallace continued, explaining that he did not like dramas about palace politics and was afraid he could not deliver as the drama had a long production period. He also added that Zhou Xun was “too good” an actress and he was worried he could not meet her expectations.

However, he eventually decided to take on the role after working with the Chinese actress in 2017 film, Our Time Will Come. It helped that Zhou Xun is an “easygoing” person and an actress who could easily bring him “into character,” said Wallace.
