It is every artiste’s biggest dream to become famous and become TV King and TV Queen. Alice Chan (陳煒) plays the female lead in new drama (回歸) together with Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Chow Ka Lok (周嘉洛), Ricco Ng (吳偉豪) and Kayan Yau (游嘉欣), and it will be premiering in July.
In 1996, Alice was crowned the champion in ATV Ms Asia Pageant (亞洲小姐競選) when she was 22 year old. Joey Meng (萬綺雯), Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), Kristy Yang (楊恭如) and Alice were heavily groomed once joining ATV. In 2005, she challenged the role in Mei Yan Fang Fei (梅艷芳菲) drama in Mainland China and was described as a duplicate of Anita Mui (梅艷芳). It was considered a turning point in her acting career.
After 3 years later, Alice ended her contract with ATV after working for them for 12 years. In 2012, she joined TVB and had a reunion with her former ATV colleagues, Kent Cheng (鄭則仕), Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Kristal and Joey. Alice proceeded to shoot Friendly Fire (法網狙擊) series and won Most Popular Female Artiste (最受歡迎電視女角色) Award based on Lord of Shanghai (梟雄) in 2015. She also bagged the same award representing Deep in the Realm of Conscience (宮心計2深宮計) drama in 2018.
Subsequently, her acting skills is recognised in Two Steps From Heaven (幕後玩家), Line Walker: The Prelude (使徒行者2), Wonder Women (多功能老婆) and Murder Diary (刑偵日記) series. Hence, television producer, Lam Chi Wah (林志華) of Murder Diary drama invites Alice in new drama (回歸).
The plot illustrates the era in 1997. Alice acts as Roger’s wife and both work together in a cafe. However, they file for a divorce because of the changes in their relationship and Alice decide to set up her food empire in Mainland China, while Roger continues to work in the cafe in Hong Kong.
As for Ricco and Ka Lok, they play Alice and Roger’s sons. After the divorce, Ricco follows Alice to Mainland China while Ka Lok stays with Roger in Hong Kong. After 25 years later, both return to Hong Kong and Ricco becomes the CEO in their food business. He reunites with Ka Lok by coincidence and the story progresses from there slowly.
Since joining TVB, Alice is nominated for TV Queen 5 times but returns home empty-handed every time. Ever wonder if she has chances to win this time? Let’s wait and see her performance in this new series.
