Sunny Chan recently won one of the Favorite Character awards at Singapore's Starhub awards. In fact, it was his first award in 14 years! His last award was also in Singapore at the Singapore International Film awards where he won the Silver Screen Award for Best Actor for the Hong Kong movie, Hold You Tonight. This is why Sunny says that Singapore has been very good to him.
Although Sunny has only one series released this year, Greatness of a Hero was actually filmed in 2009. He actually has not been filming for over a year so that he can take care of his autistic son. The family did not realize how serious the situation was until a 1 1/2 years ago, so Sunny has been busy teaching him arithmetic and reading, as well as how to open up to others. He'll soon return to TVB to film 初五啟市錄, which is a pre-modern comedy, with Raymond Wong, Sonjia Kwok, and Lin Xia Wei.
I look forward to seeing Sunny on my TV screen again! I really like him and I definitely think he's under-rated. I prefer him in strong, serious roles such as Phoenix Rising and War and Destiny.
