HONG KONG, March 21 — Andy Lau has updated fans on his progress, as he works on his recovery following a horse-riding accident in January.
In a message on his website on Saturday, Lau wrote: “Every day I’m sitting a little bit longer. Every day I’m standing a little bit longer. One day I’ll take the first step. I’m tough!”
On March 10, the 55-year-old superstar announced that he had been discharged from Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital.
He also told fans that his pelvic fractures are healing well and his vertebral spine, sciatic nerve system, muscles and Achilles tendon are recovering slowly.
It is understood that Lau has been advised to rest for up to 11 months.
Lau fractured his pelvis in multiple places after he was reportedly thrown off a horse while filming a commercial in Thailand on January 17.
He has enjoyed a nearly 30-year career as an award-winning singer, actor and producer, and is widely known as one of the “Four Heavenly Kings” of Cantopop.
Lau has starred in over 140 movies according to his production company website, and was recently cast in Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s movie, The Great Wall, that also featured Hollywood star Matt Damon.
