Celine Ma, the 51-year-old TVB actress, was caught up in the Hong Kong protest as front-liners hit the streets of Mong Kok over the weekend.

Pro-China stance

Ma is best known for her role as May May in Hong Kong’s long-running series A Kindred Spirit, where she plays a spoilt rich daughter of a Malaysian Chinese tycoon.

Ma has been a vocal supporter of the police and has also openly expressed her pro-China stance on social media.

The protesters then took away her phone and attacked her.

Bloodstains could then be seen on her shirt, chin and at the back of her left ear as she confronted the protesters and yelled at them: “Did I hit anyone? Come at me!”.

A foreign journalist then held onto Ma’s hand and brought her to Mong Kok police station, where she spoke to the media outside.

Ma said that the protesters also sprayed paint on her and broke her phone, but the actress eventually managed to retrieve it.

Ma subsequently entered the station even though it was supposed to be closed for the night.
