Former Actress, Patricia Liu, Makes Accusations Against TVB
Retiring from the entertainment industry for over a decade, ex-TVB actress and former Miss Hong Kong contestant, Patricia Liu (劉倬琦), recently accused TVB executives of favoritism and abusing their powers.
Working at TVB in the 1990’s, Patricia spent 12 years with the station but was only given minor or supporting roles with little room for development. After leaving TVB, Patricia worked at ATV for a short while before moving to the United States.
Allegedly spotted posting up flyers on the streets, Patricia tried to gain attention for a mid-level TVB executive committing suicide over 12 years ago. Patricia also complained about former executives Stephen Chan (陳志雲) and Ho Lai Cheun (何麗全) favoring certain artistes, and would only promote those who constantly “polished their shoes”. Patricia called out certain “shoe-shiners” such as Amigo Chui (崔建邦), Sharon Chan (陳敏之), and Natalie Tong (唐詩詠).
Ho Lai Cheun, who is the current Chief Executive Officer of ATV, responded, “I don’t know! I didn’t read about them– I don’t really know what’s happening so I can’t really comment on this. I met with [Patricia] when she came back [from the United States] and we’ve talk about working together, but there isn’t anything suitable right now. These are all just made-up lies and I’m able to comment. Justice lies in the heart; I didn’t do it and I’m not going to care. There’s no evidence and my previous company [TVB] had a lot of regulations so there’s no way of abusing power. There are too many artistes in the company; they become famous through hard work. If everyone could become popular based on promotion alone, then that would just be too easy.”
Denying that she was putting up posters around Hong Kong, Patricia only revealed that she is currently taking medication to stabilize her emotions. Although she stated that she was close with Raymond Lam (林峯) and Tavia Yeung (楊怡) in the past, Patricia didn’t want to call them and bother them with depressing stories about her life.
