    1Blue蓝 [1998]


    Ruco Chan Chin-pang (born 14 January 1977) is a Hong Kong actor and singer. Chan made his acting debut when he was seventeen years old, appearing in an episode of the TVB television drama Instinct (1994). After years of playing background and minor supporting characters, Chan got his first major role in the ATV television drama Love In a Miracle (2003). Though he continued to star in ATV television dramas for the next three years, his drama series were not commercially successful.

    Chan returned to TVB in 2008 and gained fame when he starred as the young barrister Keith Lau in the TVB legal drama The Other Truth (2011), a role that also established him as a leading television actor. Chan received critical acclaim for his performance in Brother's Keeper (2013), earning him his first top-five Best Actor nomination at the TVB Anniversary Awards. In 2014, Chan won My Favourite TVB Actor at the StarHub TVB Awards for his performance in the espionage series Ruse of Engagement (2014).

    In 2015, Chan received acclaim for his performance as the Eleventh Prince in Captain of Destiny, winning My Favourite TVB Actor at the StarHub TVB Awards and the TVB Star Awards Malaysia. The role also garnered Chan a TVB Anniversary Award for Most Popular Male Character.

    Early life
    Chan was born in Hong Kong. His father was a firefighter and his mother was a tailor. Influenced by his father at a young age, Chan developed a love for table tennis and joined the Hong Kong Table Tennis team after receiving rigorous training at the Jubilee Sports Academy when he was thirteen. He was the youngest player to represent Hong Kong in overseas competitions at the time. After five years of committing to the sport, Chan left the team upon finishing his high school education exams. After graduation, Chan was accepted into a technical institution and, attracted by the 3,000 HKD monthly income, also joined TVB's Artiste Training Class. Being only seventeen at the time, Chan was required to have his parents' signed approval before signing a management contract with TVB. His father initially refused, but later gave in when TVB offered an automatic contract cancellation if Chan didn't do well in his classes. Chan graduated from TVB's Seventh Artiste Training Class of 1994.

    Chan's television debut was in the serial drama Instinct in 1994, where he briefly appeared as the young friend of Ekin Cheng's character Pao Man-lung. Weeks later, he made a brief appearance in the sitcom A Kindred Spirit as the friend of Andy, portrayed by Hawick Lau, who was Chan's training class classmate. For the next three years, Chan performed in minor roles in over eighteen TVB television dramas. Chan left TVB in 1998 after signing a record deal with PolyGram. Prior to the release of his debut EP, Universal acquired PolyGram and Chan's contract with PolyGram became defunct. For the next few years, Chan won several small supporting roles in various Hong Kong films. When he had no filming jobs, he would work as a renovation worker, earning only 300 HKD per day.

    In 2001, Chan signed with ATV to start working on television acting again. According to Chan, his first two years at ATV were "rough, uncomfortable, and filled with regret." Despite his past acting experiences in both television and film, ATV only gave him minor roles and spots in music videos. Chan's first major role was in the 2004 period drama Love in a Miracle, playing the main antagonist. He was then given a major supporting role in My Date with a Vampire III (2004). Besides performing in television dramas, Chan also made appearances in many variety shows, and hosted many gala ceremonies for ATV.

    Unsatisfied with his career at ATV, Chan returned to TVB in 2008 and signed an eight-year management contract with the company. He was cast into supporting roles in several successful television dramas, such as The Threshold of a Persona (2009), Burning Flame III (2009), The Mysteries of Love (2010), Ghost Writer (2010), When Lanes Merge (2010), and Every Move You Make (2010), most of them being villainous roles. In 2011, Chan garnered media attention and critical acclaim for his portrayal of barrister Keith Lau in the television legal drama The Other Truth. Chan was nominated for Best Actor and My Favourite Male Character at the 2011 TVB Awards Presentation.

    Personal life
    Chan began dating Hong Kong actress Eunis Yiu in 2007. In July 2011, Chan and Yiu confirmed that their relationship ended in 2010.
