“‘Fresh Off the Boat’ was my first-ever TV show,” Wu told the the publication. “I was thrown into this world. I don’t have parents in the industry. And because I was 30, people thought I knew what I was doing. It made me paranoid and embarrassed.”

The actress, who in the show played matriarch Jessica Huang, claims that things got physical when she and the producer went to a sporting event together. He allegedly “put his hand on her thigh, his hand eventually grazing her crotch” there, according to the Times.

Wu asserts that she told him to stop, and the two later covered up the alleged occurrence.

Wu explained why she decided to speak up about the alleged wrongdoing during a panel at the Friday’s Atlantic Festival in Washington, D.C.

“I kept my mouth shut for a really long time about a lot of sexual harassment and intimidation that I received the first two seasons of the show. Because, after the first two seasons, once it was a success, once I was no longer scared of losing my job, that’s when I was able to start saying ‘no’ to the harassment, ‘no’ to the intimidation, from this particular producer,” she said,

“And, so I thought, ‘You know what? I handled it, nobody has to know, I don’t have to stain this Asian American producer’s reputation, I don’t have to stain the reputation of the show.’”
