13th October 2021- (Hong Kong) Earlier Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman came to Hong Kong on 12th August 2021 for the shooting of the Amazon series “EXPATS and her exemption from quarantine has caused great controversy.
During the filming, there was a dispute with her movie director Lulu Wang. Nicole was apparently not accustomed to the filming style in Hong Kong. After coming to Hong Kong for just 25 days, she finally “surrendered” due to the built-up pressure and she decided to take 2 months off. She left Hong Kong in a private jet on 5th September and was tentatively scheduled to return to Hong Kong to start work in November.
It is rumoured that Nicole Kidman has secretly returned to Hong Kong again recently without undergoing quarantine. Nevertheless, the film crew has been keeping mum about her whereabouts.
After arriving in Hong Kong during her trip in August, she was accused of going out shopping at COS boutique in Central. However, Commerce and Economic Development Bureau subsequently justified her shopping spree as part of her itinerary to select costumes for the set.
