2013 is turning out to be a good year for Ruco Chan. Not only is he reportedly involved in a budding relationship with his Brother's Keeper co-star Ankie Belkie, he has starred in a slew of dramas that will air through this year.
On his CV of upcoming broadcasts are drama serials Brother's Keeper, Reality Check and Slow Boat Home, along with three other series that are yet to be aired.
However, Chan has surprised reporters by playing down his chances of snagging an award at the TVB Anniversary ceremony later this year, reported HKHeadline.
When asked if he was willing to accept the Most Improved Actor award, he said: "I really don't want this award because I've been in the industry for 20 years, this is an award to encourage newcomers, I don't want be hindering others from getting this award!"
Instead, his eye is on the biggest prize on offer -- the Best Actor Award -- though he shocked observers when he suggested he may turn it down if chosen, citing himself as a junior among other actors who have been around the block longer than he has.
"I really think I am still far from getting an award. I will rather spend a few more years accumulating experience and accepting different roles and really have the skills, just like Wayne Lai, before I get an award.
"When everyone praises and agrees with the choice of the winner, then the award is meaningful.
"Also, there is Chilam Cheung and Francis Ng in the running this year. How am I qualified to compete with them?"
