Ariel Lin to quit shooting drama series

Taiwanese actress-singer Ariel LinTaiwanese star Ariel Lin announced on Sunday that she will not be shooting any more TV drama series in near future.

The 28-year-old actress, who is currently working on idol drama I May Not Love You, explained that she had thought about reducing her workload ever since she recovered from an operation to remove a cyst in her brain in 2009.

“Playing the lead in a television series is very tough, like life in the military,” said Lin, who was worried that a heavy workload will cause a relapse, among other health problems.

“Lately, my strength isn’t what it used to be. I still like acting, but I feel that I should pursue my dreams only as far as my health permits.

“I also want to give my time over to important people [in my life],” Lin told reporters, pointing out that her priorities in life have changed a lot since she made her showbiz debut at 18.

Apart from her career plans, Lin, who is currently dating a man named Zhen Jia Yao, also revealed that she plans to have a low key wedding, away from the media spotlight.
