Jacky Wu’s daughter to venture into showbiz
Veteran Taiwanese comedian-host Jacky Wu revealed during a program recording that his 22-year-old daughter, Sandy Wu, had recently gone for a test recording.
“She sees Patty Hou as an inspiration and hopes to develop herself as a news anchor,” said Jacky.
Sandy reportedly returned to Taiwan in June after completing her four-year University course at Washington State University within two and a half years. According to Jacky, his wife has finally agreed to allow their daughter, who has always wanted to enter the entertainment industry, to venture into showbiz.
“Sandy’s mum didn’t want her to follow in my footsteps,” Jacky explained. “She was worried that Sandy would be hounded by reporters on our personal lives and that she would be attacked by the media.”
However, he sang praises of his daughter by commenting on her sharp wit. “She doesn’t stumble over words like Jay Chou did when he first debuted, and even pokes fun at me sometimes,” he laughed.
