At Thursday's press conference marking the start of the filming by Taiwanese director Tsai Yin-chuan, she said she could rest easy about Zed as husband Christopher Lee is taking care of him in Singapore.

She and actor Li Li-ren play a married couple in the movie titled Xin Ling Shi Zhong, whose literal translation is Heart Clock. She and Li, who is television host Matilda Tao's husband, are reuniting years after appearing in the 1998 TV movie Fann Wong's Music Love Story.

Sporting a svelte 52kg post-pregnancy figure, she said all she asked of Tsai was permission to return home to see Zed every two weeks, Apple Daily reported. "Chris phones me every day, at least three times," she added.
