Bosco Wong Chung-chak (Chinese: 黃宗澤, born 13 December 1980) with family roots in Jiangmen, Guangdong, is a Hong Kong actor under TVB management and singer under East Asia Music.

Biography[edit]

Early career[edit]

Bosco's entertainment career began in 1998. He was spotted on the street by a talent-recruiter and soon appear for the first time in a lemon tea commercial and several minor modelling jobs. Recruiters offered him further opportunities but Bosco insisted on finishing his high school first. Right after high school graduation(Form 7) Bosco auditioned at TVB in 1999 at age 19. During his first few years in TVB, Bosco started off by hosting several TVB programmes and played cameo roles(celafare) in various TVB series.[1]

Growth[edit]

His debut came in 2003 when he was offered supporting roles in modern drama Triumph in the Skies, ancient series Find The Light, and youth drama Aqua Heroes. He then starred in Wong Fei Hung - Master of Kung Fu in 2004. In 2005 he stepped forward as a dramatic and comedic actor in Wars of In-Laws and obtained TVB's Most Improved Actor Award of the year. Afterwards, his performance as a socially inept youth in Dicey Business(2006) earned him even more exposure and recognition as a rising actor.[2] In October 2008, Bosco developed further by signing a singer contract with East Asia Music and released his debut EP in December of the same year.[3] He continued to grow his acting to another level by taking charge of a villainous character "Bai Co" or "Cripple Co" in Lives of Omission(2011).[4] He also subsequently expressed that his growing age allows him to play more mature characters such as triad leader "Cripple Co" and righteous police Inspector "Hui Sir" in Witness Insecurity(2012) and "Cripple Co" is a role that he had fun playing.[5]

Bosco starred in his first silver screen leading role as "Chiu Bing" - a low class ice cream vendor in director Fire Lee's debut movie Love In Time(2012) and gained positive applause for his sincere and realistic performance.[6][7] He also confessed that his dream is to pursue acting in more movies and wish to direct his own one day.

Besides expanding in films, Bosco has also stretched his acting experience to outside production houses notably from mainland China. Beginning with his first foray as a revolutionary warrior in CCTV8's period piece "Racecourse" filmed in late 2010, he takes the challenge of portraying a depressive male character "Lin Fang Wen" in a TV adaptation popular romance novel "Women on The Bread Tree" filmed in 2012, and starring as a 26 year old version of the famous "Detective Dee" in suspense-mystery costume drama "Young Sherlock"(filmed in 2013).
