Due to the pandemic and travel bans, several productions have been halted, including the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, which catapulted the 38-year-old to fame in the Hollywood scene.

Despite being used to flying around for work and play, Fiona takes the current situation in stride, as she has come to like staying at home and spending time with her family and friends.

She explained that she currently leads a fulfilling life, spending time exploring different parts of Singapore and riding a bicycle as exercise.
