The ongoing protests in Hong Kong is affecting the income of its celebrities.

Malay Mail quoted Oriental Daily as saying that the artistes’ money-making opportunities have been reduced.

Hong Kong actor Ruco Chan said that the protests have definitely impacted the artistes but being a citizen of Hong Kong, they will continue to work. He added that if the site was not suitable, they will move the site to another location the next day.

He goes on to say that the artistes should not be looking towards money all the time and that the more important thing is for everyone to be happy, healthy and have a comfortable environment.

Ruco shared that even if one earns a lot of money but does not have health, it will be pointless and that there must be balance.

The artistes only found out about the matter the day before the event with regards to the cancellation of TVB’s live telecast anniversary celebration.

Malay Mail quoted Hong Kong’s Ming Pao as saying that for Ruco, although he was upset with the arrangements as a participating artiste, he understood that TVB was forced to make the decision due to safety concerns.

It was the first time in the station’s 52-year history where its anniversary celebration was not telecast live.

The live telecast, initially slated for 19 November, was instead replaced by a recording of what was supposed to be the final rehearsal.

Born 14 January 1977 as Ruco Chan Chin-pang, he is a Hong Kong actor and singer. Ruco made his acting debut at the age of seventeen when he appeared in 1994 TVB television drama Instinct.

He landed his first major role in the ATV TV drama Love In A Miracle after years of playing background and minor supporting characters.

His drama series were not commercially successful even though he continued to act in ATV television dramas for the next three years.
