Hong Kong actress and singer Gigi Leung, 40, slipped and fell last night when she walked on stage to present an award at the closing ceremony of the 6th Beijing International Film Festival.
The mother-of-one made her entrance after an ice-skating performance took place and stepped on a piece of ice by accident, which sent her tumbling to the floor before a shocked audience. But Gigi picked herself up quickly and went on to present the award.
Afterwards, the actress–singer posted an update on Weibo to tell her fans she was OK. “It’s like this: We had to walk to the centre of the stage to present the award, and silly me thought that meant the middle of the stage literally,” she wrote.
“I didn’t know where was a large piece of ice there, so with a few more steps I slipped and fell. My apologies for scaring everyone!”
She added she had only suffered some minor injuries. “Haha, actually I really wanted to ice skate!” she joked.
Gigi attended the Beijing International Film Festival with the cast and crew of the movie Summer’s Desire, on which she acts as producer for the first time.
