KUALA LUMPUR: The actress who played Mrs Jit in the controversial Onederful Malaysia CNY 2014 video said her character was supposed to model after the late Hong Kong actress, Lydia Shum.
“I have no idea why people are saying that my character was modelled after a politician in the country.
“Fans of Hong Kong television programmes would understand the reference made to Lydia Shum,” said Lim Ching Miau, 32, when met at the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters on Tuesday.
The actress explained that Seputeh MP Teresa Kok’s personal assistant contacted her two to three days prior to the shooting of the video.
“I met Teresa for the first time while working on the video. I received the script on the spot,” said Lim.
She added that police contacted her at 5pm Friday, requesting her presence at the police headquarters to have her statement recorded.
“As a responsible citizen of this country, I intend to give the police my fullest cooperation in getting this matter sorted out,” said Lim.
It is learnt that the two male actors featured in the video arrived at the police headquarters at about 9am to have their statements recorded.
They reportedly left at 1.30pm.
