Aimee Chan Harassed On Set of “Outbound Love”?
Aimee Chan (陳茵媺) is currently in Malaysia filming for her upcoming romantic drama Outbound Love <單戀雙城>. The 32-year-old actress takes on her first leading role as a travel agent who goes to Malaysia to escape heartbreak. There she meets Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), a music producer, and falls quickly in love despite initial differences. The two enjoyed a happy relationship until they returned to Hong Kong to find Aimee’s ex-boyfriend, portrayed by Matt Yeung (揚明), waiting to take Aimee back.
Today, reports surfaced claiming Aimee was very upset last Wednesday after being sexually harassed by fellow actors during a scene. In the scene, Aimee was surrounded by a group of men who teased and physically molested her. Allegedly, several of these local male extras saw this as an opportunity and laid hands on Aimee repeatedly. Some were seen touching her back, chest, and arms, while others hugged her inappropriately.
Ruco Chan and Matt Yeung were also on-set at the time but the two purportedly stood by as the scene continued. The crew also did not provide any assistance even though Aimee looked extremely uncomfortable.
Aimee also sprained her wrist during filming and suffered moderate pain. She was feeling very depressed afterwards and phoned boyfriend Moses Chan (陳豪) about the incident. Moses was reportedly furious upon hearing the news and immediately contacted TVB executive Virginia Lok (樂易玲) to file a complaint.
Frequently filming TVB dramas, Niki Chow (周麗淇) was asked to comment about Aimee’s incident at an event on Wednesday. Niki appeared surprised. “Is it true? Did Aimee comment on this? It could simply be a part of the scene. There are many extras and professional actors on a set. It is difficult to decide whom we will be working with”. Niki added that if she ever finds herself in similar situations, she will immediately notify the director to prevent others from becoming victims.
At a promotional event today, Aimee clarified, “Nothing happened! It was a matter of camera angles. The filming progress has been good and we all got along well together.”
TVB Deputy Director of External Affairs, Tsang Sing Ming (曾醒明) also clarified that after speaking with the producer and crew members, he confirmed that Aimee was not molested on the set. “The incident did not occur as reported by the tabloids.”
