Former Hong Kong actress Yammie Nam, recently revealed that she was once raped in Singapore, an incident that left her emotionally unstable.
HONG KONG: Former Hong Kong actress Yammie Nam, known for playing the Spider Demon in the 1995 film “A Chinese Odyssey”, recently revealed that she was once raped in Singapore, reported Hong Kong media.
Nam said the incident, which left her emotionally unstable, happened many years ago, when she went to Singapore to visit her friend who was filming there.
She said her rapist had claimed he was drunk, when he made his way into her room at a rented house one night and raped her.
“I was afraid I’d get pregnant after I was raped … so I went to see a doctor in Singapore the next day,” said Nam, adding that she also took medication in a bid to avoid pregnancy.
Nam explained that she did not go to the police as her rapist was a powerful figure in the film industry and she didn’t want to create any trouble.
When questioned about the reliability of her account, the 50-year-old said: “Why would I lie about this?”
Nam was once known for her beauty in Hong Kong, and acted alongside top stars like Andy Lau as well as Chow Yun Fat.
She appeared in the popular 1992 drama “The Greed of Man” and went on to do a number of films, before fading from the limelight in the late 90s.
