Two months after she disappeared, star’s fame and influence have been blamed for turning the ruling party against her
On Sunday, fans of missing Chinese actor Fan Bingbing marked her 37th birthday with some sadness. “Fan Bingbing, happy birthday. It is again another year, another autumn. The road ahead is long and the way back is not clear. But it’s okay because you are here. I am here. We are all here,” one posted online.
China’s most famous actress has not been seen in public for more than two months after becoming embroiled in a public scandal over actors underreporting their earnings. Through her studio, Fan, who has been the country’s highest paid actress for years, denied any wrongdoing.
The message is clear: no one is safe
