Life’s sweet for Paige Chua these days.
With her career on the way up – the actress had just completed a Channel 8 drama in which she has a major lead role – and a seven-year relationship still going strong, things are looking rosy for the 29-year-old.
Speaking to xinmsn at the press conference for MediaCorp’s latest melodramatic thriller The Score recently, Paige revealed that she has been in a relationship with a guy who’s not in showbiz for seven years.
Is marriage and children in the pipeline?
The lanky actress, who expressed that both she and boyfriend are highly individualistic people, dismissed the idea, telling xinmsn that while she has no plans on settling down in the short-term, she was “receptive to having kids”.
“I’ve thought about it. If I don’t have a partner when I’m in my 40s or 50s, I’ll most likely adopt children.”
Paige also added that out of respect for her boyfriend, she will avoid disclosing his identity to the public.
In the upcoming drama, Paige plays an employee turned illegitimate daughter of a business tycoon – a meaty role alongside veteran artiste Xiang Yun and Huang Wenyong.
She later gets entangled in a love triangle with Zhang Yaodong and Adam Chen.
Making her debut in drama Just in Singapore as the haughty and materialistic sister of Fiona Xie more than two years ago, Paige is more often than not, touted as an up-and-coming starlet on Caldecott Hill.
Yet, the confident lass feel no pressure on feeling the gaps of the departed “princesses”.
Compared to a fleeting success, the unassuming actress prefers to stay grounded while talking things one step at a time.
Having just renewed a one-year acting contract with MediaCorp in June this year, Paige said: “I’m not a person who plans my life. A one year period is just right. When that time is up…and if I’ve lost the passion for acting, I’ll leave [showbiz].”
