Moses Chan’s TVB Contract is Ending
With the large outflow of qualified artistes leaving TVB and seeking opportunities in Mainland China, the company is experiencing a shortage of leading actors. To compensate, TVB is instead promoting newcomers and giving them lead roles despite lack of experience. TVB is relying on the few seasoned artistes left at the company, such as Moses Chan (陳豪) and Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華), to handhold these newcomers. However, TVB will be losing yet another experienced lead actor, as Moses’ contract is ending soon. The 46-year-old actor does not seem to intend to renew his contract with TVB, his employer of 17 years.
In hopes of convincing Moses to stay, TVB reportedly sought out Moses several times to discuss renewing his contract. However, no matter how it was sliced, TVB’s low pay further fueled Moses’ intent to end his contract. Moses explained, “You can’t really say it like that. I focused primarily on who I could or would be collaborating with. It’s not like how the media reports it.”
Eyes Mainland China
As with many others who have left the TVB nest, Moses intends to shift his career to Mainland China in hopes of earning more money for his family. “Actually, there is still some time left in my contract [with TVB]. However, I really am heading to Mainland China to film a drama in March. As to what the drama is, I’ll let them announce it!”
Moses reportedly already had plans to seek opportunities in Mainland China five years ago. However, Aimee Chan (陳茵媺) fell pregnant unexpectedly. This compelled Moses to strike a deal with TVB, with the actor renewing his contract in exchange for Aimee suspending her contract with TVB and halting all work.
Although Moses will have to leave his family behind, he expressed that Aimee is supportive of his decision. The couple will make the appropriate arrangements and Moses is not worried about being separated from his three kids for long periods of time. “The way she is supporting me is the same as how I would be supportive of her. When the time comes, I will make time to come home for a day or two. Or, she and the kids can come visit me too!”
