Ruco Chan’s (陳展鵬) schedule is packed this year. As one of TVB’s heavily-promoted artists, he has been filming nonstop with even more opportunities on the way. After years in the industry playing supporting roles, Ruco finally received his big break in 2011’s The Other Truth <真相>. The popular character Keith Lau opened up doors for the 36-year-old, earning him Best Actor nominations and public acclaim. His performance in this year’s Reality Check <心路GPS> further solidified his lead actor status and pushed him into the media spotlight. Despite all of the buzz and money generated by his hard-earned fame, Ruco remains humble and dedicates his all to his first love – acting.
Ruco attended TVB’s Mother’s Day event as a celebrity guest and helped raffle off prizes to viewers yesterday. He shared that he had already celebrated with his mother earlier in the week and gave her a very practical gift. “I just came back from Malaysia. I took my mother out for a vegetarian meal, which she loves. I don’t have time to celebrate with her today because of work. I gave her a set of exercise clothes as a gift because she is planning to participate in the Walk for Millions.”
Reporters asked Ruco if his mother had rushed him to get married, Ruco denied it and shared that his mother had asked him to focus on his work instead. He agreed with the advice and said that he will only consider marriage if he meets a suitable partner.
Although Ruco already has a heavy workload, TVB continues to line up more work to take advantage of the momentum. Ruco shared that the company had suddenly asked him to fly to Taiwan on Monday to film a travel program with Elaine Yiu (姚子羚). Since his latest drama Slow Boat Home <情越海岸線> is premiering Monday night, reporters asked Ruco if he is worried about missing out on the series’ promotional events. Ruco seemed unconcerned however and appreciates the work opportunity, “Filming travel shows is part of my job. I’m not worried at all!”
