The third installment of The Princess Switch franchise, “The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star” premiered in November 2021, and as always it featured the trio of doppelgangers teaming up to solve mysteries. But this season, Fiona brought in help — her highly-skilled ex-boyfriend, Peter Maxwell — portrayed by Remy Hii, who worked hand-in-hand with the team.
So, who is this charming guy in real life? Does he have a wife? Or, is he gay as the rumors suggested? Scroll below to find out.
Is Remy Hii Gay?
Remy Hii has always been an active supporter of LGBTQ+ rights. Even back in November 2020, when a gay refugee was being detained in Australia, he was one of the voices that demand the person’s freedom.
But though the actor often spoke on the matter regarding gay rights, he never confessed his sexuality. So, it’s unclear if Remy is gay or not.
However, almost half of his fans believed that Remy was gay. A Twitter user wrote, “Apparently this is @RemyHii’s second high profile gay rôle and he has never publicly addressed his sexuality so it’s entirely possible that this is a queer actor playing a queer character and that is very, VERY exciting.”
The “high profile gay role” the user was referring to was Remy’s portrayal of an elite gay swimmer “Hudson Walsh” on the soap opera Neighbours.
Does Remy Hii Have A Wife?
No, as of 2021, Remy Hii didn’t have a wife. Also, his gay rumors wouldn’t have existed, if he ever had one.
However, back in 2014, Remy was reportedly dating his Marco Polo co-star, Olivia Cheng. But this could have just been his fan fiction in action.
Did you know: Remy was often mistaken for the Australian fellow actor Chris Pang.
Who Are Remy Hii Parents?
Remy Hii was born to a Chinese-Malaysian dad, and an English mother. His parents were once featured over his IG post captioned, “Mum and dad Bangkok, 2016” and it was followed by hashtags “ironyourshirtdad” and “likefatherlikeson.”
So, his parents probably were in Bangkok then, and it also suggested how much Remy compared himself with his dad.
Talking about his ethnicity, Remy said that he was proud of his Malaysian Chinese heritage. And the best thing for the actor about “being able to celebrate the traditional way” was the “food”.
Also, as much as Remy flaunted his Asian heritage, he was a proud Australian too. And naturally, Australia loved him back. Back in 2020, he was even named Australia’s next leading man by Couriermail magazine.
This actor was born in Sabah, Malaysia, grew up in Papua New Guinea, and made a career in Australia. As he traveled a lot, it even led him to a point where he once called his big yellow suitcase to be his home.
Trivia: Remy has at least one sibling.
How Much Is Remy Hii Net Worth?
Remy Hii garnered a net worth of $1.5 million by 2021.
Growing up, Remy was always fascinated by the stories. So, he wanted to be a writer and did a lot of writing in school through theatre and drama classes. But he was always asked to put on performances written by others — “which didn’t reflect my experiences and tell the stories I wanted to tell,” Remy said.
Nurturing his passion, Remy eventually grew up to be an actor, a chef, a gamer, a writer. He first stepped into the movie industry at the age of 19 with the Queensland Theatre Company in the award-winning play The Estimator. Since then, it was a smooth sail for the actor.
But not so “smooth sail” that he didn’t have to face any racial discrimination in the industry. Moreover, he even received hate from the viewers after he starred on the soap Neighbours. Reason being? Remy might have Asian heritage but he lived in Australia since 8.
Though he was upset about the matter, Remy remained silent at the time because he didn’t want to risk jeopardizing his budding career.
As of 2021, Remy had over 20 movies and TV show credits to his name. Mentioning some of his popular ones are — Arcane (2021), Aftertaste (2021), Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019), Crazy Rich Asians (2018), and Marco Polo (2016).
Also, Remy has won the Logie Award for “Most Outstanding Newcomer” for his performance as “Van Tuong Nguyen” on the 2013 TVminiseries Better Man.
If Remy hadn’t been in the entertainment business, he admittedly would have gone to a culinary school.
