HK actress Charmaine Sheh tackles romance rumours

It’s rare that celebrities are willing to tackle rumours about their love lives head on.

Hong Kong actress Charmaine Sheh, however, was one such celebrity when she took on reporters’ questions on her rumoured romance with actor Kevin Cheng on Monday during the “TVB Star Tour”.

The pair have collaborated on numerous drama serials in the past including the recent epic TVB period drama “Beyond The Realm Of Conscience”, which Sheh was in town to promote.

Sheh and Cheng were rumoured to be dating after being photographed together by the paparazzi on numerous occasions, though the two have maintained that they are “good friends”.

“Even if we were in the same car, or eating at the same table, it doesn’t mean we’re dating, besides before dating you’ll still have to go through the stage of being regular friends,” replied Sheh calmly, “I won’t stop meeting up with my friends because of rumours, if that was the case, I’d only have female friends!”

Besides rumours that Sheh was the third party in Cheng’s previous relationship with actress, Niki Chow, the Hong Kong media had also reported that Sheh had previously asked a reporter to help pass on the message to Cheng to woo her.

“I don’t have time to follow what the Hong Kong media are writing, sometimes what they write is really exaggerated,” said Sheh. “We began with [2003 TVB drama] ‘The Point Of No Return’ and have collaborated for many years. We’ve known each other for a long time even before that, it’s just that no one took notice,” said Sheh,

“Actually, [Cheng’s] never wooed me, we just get along.

” And the 34-year-old does not appear to be too bothered by the rumours.

“It’s not exactly bad, the rumours have been going on for as long as we have been filming. It’s also good publicity,” she said.

When asked what she thought were Cheng’s positive traits, Sheh replied, “He cares about his family, he’s steady, but I think I prefer guys who are more optimistic and talkative.”

But the question that was on everybody’s minds was: would she even consider dating Cheng?

“Not for now, but no one knows what’s going to happen in the future,” was Sheh’s response.
