Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼)’s condition was more serious than we thought. Turns out, the 39-year-old actress had to undergo a second surgery following her accident this week.
Manager Mani Fok told Hong Kong daily Ming Pao that she had to receive 66 stitches after suffering from the incident that left her with a 6cm gash on her right forehead.
Thankfully, Gillian was in good hands as the plastic surgeon that handled her second surgery was recommended by none other than actor Simon Yam Tat-wah (任達華). The actress-singer and her team are hoping that the second surgery will reduce the chances of Gillian having a scar.
“Her condition is stable and is now resting at a hotel. She will temporarily stop work and would need to refrain from eating certain food to avoid getting the wound infected,” the manager was quoted as saying.
For those who don’t know, Gillian woke up on Monday morning feeling giddy. She accidentally hit her head on a countertop at the bathroom and took a hard fall.
Hopefully she’ll recover soon and will be physically well enough to complete filming her Chinese drama in Xiamen.
