Former TVB actress Sonija Kwok is back in her first TV drama in six years and she’s brought her daughter with her.
The 47-year-old took a step back from filming after marrying Chinese martial arts choreographer Zhu Shaojie in 2011 and they have daughter Kylie, who is now 10.
In her new Hong Kong fantasy series Inevitable, now airing on Viu, Sonija plays Ms. So, the CEO of an agency who works for the God of Death. On the surface, human deaths look like accidents, but in truth, agency personnel are behind them as a form of population control.
Kylie makes her showbiz debut in episode two, playing the autistic child of an agency team leader.
According to media reports, director Wong Wai Yin said Kylie was a natural on camera and most of her scenes were done in one take.
Sonija thanked the director and the media on her Instagram page, adding, “As a mother, I just wanted my daughter to understand the responsibility, patience, teamwork and courtesy we need at work.
“She has benefited a lot from this experience and we are very grateful to her.”
