Sharon Chan Fulfills Singer Dream
Portraying the awkward and naïve Yuen Huen in Bounty Lady <My盛Lady>, Sharon Chan’s (陳敏之) performance was praised from critics and viewers. Yuen Huen is a big departure from some of Sharon’s earlier roles, all of which are considered as heroic, confident, and feminine.
“I know many people are watching [Bounty Lady] because of Dayo Wong (黃子華), and not because of Sharon Chan,” she said. “But every piece of the puzzle is important, and Dayo is like our triad leader.”
Viewers complimented Sharon’s bespectacled look in the drama, and her role’s lack of confidence garnered sympathy from many fans. Asked if Sharon lacked any confidence herself in real life, she said, “When I was doing MC work I have experienced extreme nerves right before a show, but they were all gone once I got on stage. I think an artist should have confidence. It’s something that we should all expect to have in this industry!”
Sharon shared that she wishes to hold the TV Queen trophy someday, but admitted that she still has a long road ahead of her before it happens. “I will continue to film dramas. I usually get a sense of how well my role would do when I’m filming it.”
“Bounty Lady” Helps Sharon Fulfill Singing Dream
Sharon recorded two songs for Bounty Lady – “This Song” and “One Day”, the latter becoming a viral hit and earning critical acclaim. “This drama has helped me fulfill my dreams of being a singer,” Sharon joked.
Sharon has a love for singing and although TVB currently has no plans to develop a singing career for Sharon, she has considered self-producing her own album as a gift for her fans. “I am a Christian so I do want to release some gospel music. However, I definitely don’t want to be a full-time singer; I will continue to film dramas, because I know being a singer nowadays is very difficult. I’m currently saving up some songs.”
Cherishes Feelings of Home
Sharon debuted in the industry as a model at age fourteen. Before stepping into TVB’s grounds twelve years ago, she has performed as a singer, a musical actress, and a film actress. “My mother didn’t want me to be in the industry, and it wasn’t until after I’ve proven to her that I can take care of myself when she finally accepted it. She’s now my biggest supporter.”
Sharon has not asked for a single penny from her mother since she was fourteen. Becoming the breadwinner of her family, Sharon is in charge of house bills and helped paid her younger brother’s tuition, who recently graduated with an engineering degree from Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Cherishing her family, Sharon would always bring her thoughts back to home. Perhaps this is also the reason why Sharon has no plans to leave TVB, explaining that TVB provides her a sense of security. “I am someone who is very steady. I will not randomly switch companies. Also, I don’t think there will be another company who is willing to help me pay off my car and house.”
Dating boyfriend William Lui (雷偉信) for eight years, Sharon is prepared to get married at any time. “If I do get married, I will have kids, but I’m not done having fun yet. I still want to do many other things, like traveling.”
