Wong Cho-lam (born Wong Ho-yin; 9 January 1980) is a Hong Kong entertainer currently working for TVB. He works as a stage actor, stage director, television actor, voice actor, DJ, television host, lyricist, scriptwriter and singer. He is also the host of Hunan TV's World's Got Talent.

Background[edit]

He graduated from The Hong Kong Academy For Performing Arts in 2003 with First Honors in Bachelor of Arts majoring in acting. He is a member of the Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong Limited.

His most noted work includes his performance in the long-running popular TVB series, Best Selling Secrets (同事三分親) portraying the character, Lau Wah (樓華). In 2008, he signed on as an artist with EEG (英皇娛樂), and became one of the presenters of Super Trio Supreme (鐵甲無敵獎門人).[1]

He was a co-host during the 2008 and 2010 Miss Hong Kong Pageant with Eric Tsang. He won Most Improved Actor at the 2008 TVB Awards.

Cho-lam's debut album "Cho-lam Everywhere" was released on 27 November 2008. Out of 10 songs in the album, Cho-lam wrote the lyrics for 8 of them, with each song covering different areas in life, including family, friends, love, work, etc. which all aimed to share positive messages with the audience.

Cho-lam was one of the cast members of Keep Running, the Chinese version of the Korean game show Running Man, broadcast on Zhejiang TV in 2014.[2] He also left EEG Plus in 2014, officially shifting his focus away from being a singer.

Personal life[edit]

Wong was a primary school classmate with singer Joey Yung, and in 2012, Wong discovered he is a distant cousin of Eason Chan in his visit to his ancestral home in Dongguan, China.[3] On 19 November 2014, Cho-lam publicly proposed to Leanne Li during live TVB Anniversary show, and was witnessed by TVB officials and colleagues.[4] They married on Valentine's Day in 2015. The couple are devoted Protestants, whom have both publicly declared sexual abstinence before marriage.[5][6][7] They had a daughter, Gabrielle Wong, who was born on 17 December 2018.[8]
