Ruco Chan is Not Aggressive in Dating
As the thriller series Eye in the Sky <天眼> completed its broadcast run last week, Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) reflected on the filming process and challenges of his vengeful character.
The producer’s original intent was to create a series similar to Heroic Duo <雙雄>, in which Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Ruco’s characters would team up to solve puzzling cases in a light-hearted series. However, as the script evolved, Cheung Lik Hang became a jealous, pessimistic, and unforgiving character.
“It’s a lot of fun, but both the producer and I had a lot of pressure.” Ruco prepared for the role by chatting with a friend who is a psychiatrist to understand the state of criminal minds better.
Pouring his heart into the role, Ruco’s performance was widely praised. He enjoyed the acting challenge, but does not have any expectations for winning TVB Best Actor. “Now, the votes are made by the public. Sometimes a good performance does not automatically lead to awards. Even if there are no awards, I am happy with others’ acknowledgement. I believe the viewers’ eyes are crystal clear.”
Is Not an Aggressive Pursuer
Although Ruco refused to let go of a tormenting love triangle with Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Kevin Cheng in Eye in the Sky, he said he has never been personally involved in such complex relationships. He stressed the importance of having a sense of responsibility and clear understanding of the relationship before becoming involved with someone.
Since Ruco is more introverted, he prefers women who are more outgoing and athletic. “I don’t have limitations. I’m very open and can be friends with people from various places and with different ages. Let’s see who will enter my space.”
He will not take extreme actions when pursuing a woman. He expressed, “Taking initiative doesn’t mean someone will come along. It’s good to leave your doors open to allow communication and if the other party is interested, she will enter. It’s not about actively inviting others in. At my age, dating is not playing around anymore. But I don’t want to scare the other person either.”
As an actor, Ruco realizes that his busy schedule will require understanding and tolerance from his girlfriend.
Didn’t Undergo Plastic Surgery
It has been questioned whether Ruco’s handsome features were achieved through plastic surgery. Ruco expressed, “My face is all natural and I didn’t undergo plastic surgery. When I filmed All That is Bitter is Sweet <大藥坊> last year, I became very sick when I had to film water scenes five times in the winter. In the end, my face just became extremely swollen.” However, he does hope to improve his skin condition given the advent of high-definition broadcasting.
