Moses Chan Was (Again) The Only Star Who Wore A Medical-Grade Surgical Mask At The TVB Anniversary Awards
And the award for most socially responsible star at TVB Anniversary Awards goes to… Moses Chan, of course.
Over a hundred stars had attended the ceremony and while most of them wore transparent mouth shields (how else would photographers be able to capture their megawatt smiles all night, right?), the super cautious, not to mention, super sensible Moses was the only one who had on a medical grade surgical mask, which he kept on the whole night save for when he had to go on stage and when he had his photo taken.
We know it’s crazy to even have to mention this given that we’re living in a pandemic, but it’s said that the reason for him being so careful is so he can be safe and healthy for his wife, actress Aimee Chan, and their three kids, Aiden, seven, Nathan, five, and Camilla, four.
It’s definitely not the first time Moses has eschewed looking good on camera for the sake of being socially responsible.
At the TVB Anniversay Gala on November 19 last year, he was also the only one out of 205 stars who wore a mask. At that time, Moses was asked if he wore one ’cos he was scared of contracting the virus (duh), to which he said: “Just ‘cos the numbers are low doesn’t mean you can relax.”
It was a reply that proved just how wise Moses is.
As it turned out, fellow TVB actor Edwin Siu, who didn’t wear a mask at the gala, had come into close contact with a confirmed case at an earlier event. Edwin only found out about that after the gala, where he had interacted freely with many of his unmasked colleagues. Thus all 205 artistes who were present that night had to be swabbed for the virus. Thankfully, their results all came back negative.
Moses’ socially responsible ways during this pandemic have been well-documented by the media. When he was at a photoshoot for a brand of healthcare products he endorses, he removed his mask only when he had to take the photos and promptly put it back on when he was off camera and had to speak to a reporter.
At the press conference of his drama The Impossible 3 last month, Moses also insisted on wearing a medical-grade mask. He then went on to admit to reporters that he was feeling “nervous” about the city’s fourth wave of infections.
Moses has said that him wearing a mask is not enough and that everyone should be wearing one so they can fight this pandemic together.
Now, isn’t that not just good sense but common sense as well?
