Nancy Wu Gets “Second Chance” in China After Political Controversy

Hong Kong and China’s recent political climate has affected several artistes’ careers. In addition to Ali Lee (李佳芯) losing out on jobs and work in China, Nancy Wu (胡定欣) was also in a precarious position earlier.

One of Nancy’s social media posts were considered to have connotations of “pro-Hong Kong independence.” Due to the sensitive issue, her image was removed from the poster of Mission Run <廉政狙擊> despite her role being as hefty as Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Vincent Wong (王浩信), and Sisley Choi (蔡思貝).

Careful to not have the issue magnified before it can be cleared up, Nancy remained tightlipped and sidestepped questions about her political stance at press events. It seems that her luck has finally turned. When the Mission Run production team published a set of photos for its December 10th broadcast on Chinese streaming platform Youku, Nancy’s character photo was shared as well, which seems to indicate that the controversy has cleared.

Commenting on the issue recently, Nancy coolly expressed, “If they are airing Mission Run, then everything is fine! I am looking forward to this drama being aired, because my character is quite different from my role in Big White Duel 2 <白色強人II>. My character in Mission Run has a very strong persistence when it comes to exacting revenge. However, she cannot seek revenge by mere physical force.”
