Nicole Kidman’s Hong Kong quarantine exemption sparks backlash
Nicole Kidman has sparked major backlash in Hong Kong as it emerged that the government issued her a quarantine exemption to film a TV show.
The 54-year-old is the star and executive producer of the Amazon Prime Video series Expats, based on the book The Expatriates by Janice K Lee, and was seen arriving in Hong Kong via a private plane from Sydney last Thursday.
The actress was then seen two days later shopping in the Sai Wan district.
Under current Hong Kong quarantine rules, fully vaccinated inbound travellers from Australia must serve seven days of quarantine, while from Friday onwards, they will be required to quarantine for 14 days after Australia is reclassified as a medium risk country.
