#SPOTTED: TVB STARS ELIZA SAM, REBECCA ZHU, BENJAMIN YUEN + MAT YEUNG IN TORONTO FOR 2018 FAIRCHILD TV FAN PARTY
One anticipated event every spring is Fairchild Television’s TVB Fan Party held at Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The show usually brings-in four popular names from Hong Kong’s TVB Network giving contest winners a chance to see them speak and sing. The night before the Convention Centre appearance, the stars appear at Markham’s First Markham Place for an autograph signing which usually draws people out by the hundreds.
Fairchild Television and Radio have been instrumental in creating unique Canadian content for the Chinese community here in Canada including securing rights to TVB Series from Hong Kong, allowing immigrants new and old to stay in touch with programming from back home.
Appearing this year are former Miss Chinese International and now popular TV Actress, Vancouver’s Eliza Sam, who just a few years back couldn’t speak a word of Cantonese. Also in town are former Miss Hong Kong Rebecca Zhu who earlier this year won a Best Supporting Actress Award on her network. Former Mr. Hong Kong, Benjamin Yuen, who is one of the busiest new leading men on TVB also came, as did Mat Yeung who has had a lasting career in supporting roles over the past decade turning his luck around after some troubled times.
We grew-up on TVB Series and love supporting our Chinese-Canadian community. Although thr quartet were exhausted after a long flight and night of meeting corporate sponsors and fans, they were nice to stop for a few Selfies.
