Hongkong actor Eddie Kwan, 59, has left TVB after decades with the broadcaster. He first became an actor with the station in 1981, but was fired in 1995 after acting in Ch 8 drama Sparks of Life without TVB's permission. He also starred in Ch 8's Dr Justice 2 the same year.
He only returned to TVB in 2002, and has been with the station ever since.
The Kwoks And What will be his last TVB drama as a full-time artiste.
Of his decision to leave his long-time employer, Eddie said: “I can now split my time between Hongkong and China [because] I’m no longer directly managed by [TVB] (…) But I think there should still be opportunities for me to work [with TVB]. ”
