    Actor Daniel Wu shares that fatherhood has changed him incredibly.

    He says in an interview with The Star, “Before, I would just take on jobs just to keep busy. Now, family is my number 1 priority and work has taken second place to that.”

    “And so, when I look at work, I see how that affects my family, or how it can enrich my family – by going to Ireland for eight months (to shoot TV series Into The Badlands), my daughter gets to see a whole different world for a long period of time. So, I look from that perspective,” explains the 43-year-old, who is based in Hong Kong.

    Having a famous movie star dad may sound glamourous, but Daniel wants to keep his four-year-old daughter, Raven, out of the spotlight for now.

    He and his wife, model-actress Lisa S., do not post many photos of Raven on their Instagram accounts.

    He says, “I’m not 100 per cent sure if my daughter is aware of what I do for a living.”

    “I asked her the other day if she knows what my job is and she said, ‘Yeah. You are working (to pay) for my college.’ Which is true, I guess,” he added during the interview.
