Former TVB actor Gregory Charles Rivers, who is also known as Ho Kwok Wing, probably speaks better Cantonese than most people. And you probably remember him as the token gweilo in many TVB dramas.
After dropping out of medical school, the Australian moved to Hongkong in 1987 to pursue a career in showbiz because of his passion for Cantopop. He is now one of the best-known Western faces in the city, having spent more than three decades in front of the camera. According to reports, Gregory left TVB in 2008, after screen legend Chow Yun Fat encouraged him to branch into movies.
