Born and raised in Canada, Michael Chan first got bitten by the movie bug working alongside movie star Wesley Snipes. He went on to study filmmaking and graphic design, but his dream of becoming an actor haunted him and he kept questioning whether acting was what he really wanted to do instead. He relocated to Hong Kong, where his parents were born, in 2005.
Since his relocation, Chan has attended acting classes at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts and Hong Kong Film Academy and stunt classes at Hit Hut Cinematic Action studios.
Chan has appeared in several Hong Kong, American, and Indie film projects. Besides being an actor, he has also worked as a stunt performer, model and host.
In this video, Chan reveals five things that he has learned about being an actor in Hong Kong.
