During hard times, support from your loved ones is always appreciated and longed for. Unfortunately, life sometimes gets in the way.
Hong Kong actress Esther Kwan Wing Ho (关咏荷) has been having a very hard time since the sudden loss of her younger brother. However, her husband, actor Nick Cheung (张家辉) hasn’t been able to accompany her, leaving the actress shouldering the burden and grief on her own.
Hong Kong media reported an accident in Shatin early last month. According to the report, a man surnamed Kwan (54) had been hiking when he fell 30 metres on a slope. The fall put him in a coma and he unfortunately passed away. It was later confirmed that the man had been Esther’s brother.
The actress was seen grieving in the hospital after the accident with her nephew. She had been shaken and devastated then as she sobbed for the loss of her brother. Thankfully, Esther had not been alone as her husband, Nick Cheung had been there to comfort her. However, it didn’t last long. He had to leave her side only a few days after the tragedy. He had apparently signed a contract for filming and needed to abide by it.
Esther disappeared from the public eye afterwards and was only recently spotted. Paparazzi claim she looked haggard and thinner. When they asked about her brother’s funeral, Esther had looked surprised before she left in her car.
It is believed that the actress has been busy caring for her 16-year-old daughter and handling her brother’s affairs. But Nick is worried the burden will affect her emotional and mental wellbeing. He hopes to finish filming as soon as possible and return to his wife. For now, he has asked friends in Hong Kong to support her.
Our condolences to Esther and her family. We pray they find peace in her brother’s passing and hope Nick will be able to finish his filming soon.
