“I decided to take a step back from it all and make Julian, and our home, my main focus,” said Michele, who has worked with famed directors Tsui Hark and Wong Kar-wai. “I’ve had a fulfilling career but I’m simply onto a new chapter now. A chapter that’s made up of school runs, the foundation, and the occasional social appearance.”
But in the world of show business, one can never say never. Chinese screenwriter Yu Zheng recently announced that Michele will be appearing in his new talent show Real Actor.
Yu, who produced the popular 2018 television series Story of Yanxi Palace, recently announced Michele’s comeback on WeChat. Naturally, she's playing Yang Guifei, the infamous imperial consort and one of China’s four great beauties, reports The Straits Times.
Yu uploaded a WeChat photo of the Tatler Lister in a Tang Dynasty-era costume and captioned, “Today’s Yang Guifei look is really unique and outstanding. Can’t wait to let everyone see the finished product!” Michele then commented on Yu’s post, “A very happy first time working together!”
