This Hongkong Star Says She Was Paid $5 An Hour At TVB And That She Was Basically "Cheap Labour”
She also called working at TVB the "toughest job in the world".
Weeks after former TVB actor-singer Auston Lam went public with his grievances against Hongkong broadcaster TVB for only offering him a monthly salary of HK$12,000 (S$2150) if he were to recontract with them, former TVB actress Christy Chan gave an interview, sharing that she had a similar experience with TVB.
The 32-year-old, who was a Top 10 finalist in the 2012 Miss Hongkong Pageant, joined TVB shortly after the pageant. She eventually left the company five years later in 2017.
When asked about Auston’s claims, Christy said that she “wasn't surprised”, adding that her experience was largely similar to Auston’s.
