64-year-old Yam who is recovering from the ordeal has since made public appearances again, appearing in Guangzhou on Aug 11 to publicise his upcoming film, Little Q.

They were co-stars in 2003’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life.

Yam said he was touched by her concern since he considers her a global superstar.

He shared that physiotherapy is likely to take up to nine months.

His arm is still in a sling.

Yam’s resume includes a lot of action movies and he wants to be in shape again but he has to pause any gym work until the sling comes off in eight to 10 weeks’ time.

His wife, model Qi Qi and their daughter have lost weight worrying over him, Yam said he had gained 0.5kg from eating home-cooked meals.

Qi Qi reportedly learnt how to brew tonics in a bid to boost his recovery.

Given that he cannot take on movie projects yet, Yam said he is focusing on his family.

One reward for their dedication to him?

He is allowing them to decide where to take a holiday.

For now, Yam is basking in positive reviews for Little Q, which tracks the relationship between a blind chef and a guide dog.

One reviewer said in the hands of a lesser actor, the movie could have sunk into melodrama but Yam’s portrayal of the chef was a nuanced, dignified one. -/TISGFollow us on Social Media
