Ruco Chan and Alice Chan Star in New Cop Drama
Andrew Yuen, Alice Chan, and Ruco Chan are caught in a love triangle in the new drama.
Making an appearance at TVB Studios for the costume fitting of his new drama Guardian of the Dark Night <黯夜守護者>, Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) is excited to be working with his past ATV colleagues, Alice Chan (陳煒) and Andrew Yuen (袁文傑). This marks the first time that Ruco and Alice are partnering in a TVB drama together though both artistes have been filming for the station for 10 years.
Guardian of the Dark Night is produced by Stephen Tsui (徐正康), who was behind the wildly successful War of the Genders <男親女愛> and To Catch The Uncatchable <棟篤神探>. Stephen and Ruco previously partnered in 2014’s All That is Bitter is Sweet <大藥坊>.
In Guardian of the Dark Night, Ruco will portray an undercover cop sharing romantic lines with Alice and Sharon Chan (陳敏之). Alice portrays a sheriff in the Central District Crime Unit who is dating Andrew, but later gets involved with Ruco.
Absent at the TVB Anniversary Awards for two years, Ruco said his appearance this year will depend on TVB’s decision. “I didn’t received notification from the company yet. If I’m invited, I’ll definitely go. I haven’t attended in two years, because I didn’t have any series aired during those times. There won’t be any this year either–we’ll need to wait until next year,” the actor said.
Though he already has three dramas waiting to air, none of Ruco’s dramas were released in the past two years. Asked if he feels upset, Ruco replied, “Of course not–it’s a good thing. Not just for the sake of viewers, but even I think it’s too much if I have three to four broadcast series a year. It’s harder to have room for improvement and to play a character well. My schedule was previously like that, but I’ve slowed down in the past two years. This way, viewers will have a better selection of shows to watch and the company has an opportunity to promote newcomers.”
Since he was not nominated for Best Actor this year, Ruco has his eyes on veteran actor Lau Dan (劉丹). Although TV King Vincent Wong (王浩信) is a hot favorite as well, Ruco said his vote will go towards an actor who has not won before.
