He then entered the TVB Artiste Training Class in 1985 and was signed with the station after completion of the program. The first notable role he played was Lee Yuen Ba in The Grand Canal.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Between 2007 and 2010, Kok was rumoured to be involved with, but never officially acknowledged a relationship with actress Joyce Tang.[3]
