Patrick Tam (born 19 March 1969) is a Hong Kong actor and singer.


He first set foot into the entertainment industry after winning the 1988 New Talent Awards in Hong Kong alongside another notable Hong Kong singer, Sammi Cheng who was second runner-up.[1]

After an unsuccessful stint in the music industry, Patrick was about to give up a career in the entertainment industry when he was approached by a TVB representative thus embarking on a journey into the world of acting.[1]

He got his first break when he received the Best Supporting Actor award at the 18th annual Hong Kong Film Awards in 1999 for his role as Push Pin in Beast Cops[2]

His next notable achievement was a Best Supporting Actor award at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival for his role as Man in Born Wild in 2001.[3][4]


In 1996, Patrick met and eventually dated fellow TVB colleague, actress Astrid Chan before separating over personality differences.[5] In 2003, he married Fiona Chan on Christmas Eve which also happens to be her birthday.[6]

On December 18, 2006 Patrick and Fiona welcomed son, Daniel (譚皓哲) Tam to the family.[7]

On February 21, 2011 Patrick announced the birth of his second child Tamia (譚津如) Tam, with wife Fiona.[8][9]
