    Hi everyone I'm new around.
    I just watched swordsman and fell in love with Lawrence so I was looking around the web for more info on him and found this forum

    I think one of the reasons he was never big was because he had too many big star rivels in his generation. If he were in his twenties or thirties now, I believe he would be BIG! But anyhow he left an unforgettable impression on me in swordsman. I watched the swordsman because of Damian but I ended up enjoying Lawrence instead, although I still do like Damian.

    If anyone has more info on him please keep this thread going!! And thanks so much for starting this thread in the first place.

    I love Lawrence. I love him best in The Swordsman (1997). He's very talented in playing such interchangeable roles there, really full of surprises from beginning to end. He plays the villain in the series but he really outshined the lead role for me in turns of appearance, sharp minded, and control. Found this clip from the series.

    Ah finally found him. He was one of my most favorite actors from the 90's. I remember watching him in The Swordsman and he really stole the show. Damien Lau was great, but just a bit too old to play a 20 year old.

    The more I read Liu Xing Hu Die Jian, I more I realize that The Swordsman was a very loosely adapted version of this novel. What a pity. The show itself had a really strong cast, but too bad the story was really whack towards the end.

    Yeah, I figure that Swordsman was a messed up adaptation after watching Adam Cheng's 2007? Liu Xing Hu Die Jian. I had watched Swordsman first before realizing it was the same story, but they really changed the characters and story around too much.
    I just love how you Captivate My Mind

    Self reminder - Update blog more often and continue editing/writing for TOV fanfic.

    Thank you for sharing the Video, love him in swordsman. I like him best in Snow is Red and heroic legend of yang family. He was also very good in 1995 Justice Pao but both characters were very sad =(

    Does anyone know what he is up to now? So sad he gets very small roles in TVB series.

    For viewers or fans interested, Lawrence Yan Chi Keung was in the following
    1990's ATV drama series online which I am glad I purchased on VCDs boxsets back then but some still searching for in original cantonese language.

    1) Heroic Legend of the Yang Family - 30 episodes 碧血青天杨家将 - watch it now before its remove later on like other rare drama series.

    2) Snow is Red 雪花神剑 - total 40 episodes

    I like Lawrence Yan Chi Keung too. He did good job in portraying the storyline character of both the villian & good scholar-gentleman role.

    In the beginning it was harder to find ATV drama series in its original cantonese language starred by Lawrence Yan Chi Keung
    甄志強 even when I found it & was more disappointed it was out of print or out of stock.

    But was glad to finally found it - ATV drama series - "The Swordsman 1996" 剑啸江湖

    I agreed with you on Lawrence Yan Chi Keung 甄志強.
    Its too bad ATV & TVB dont give Lawrence Yan Chi Keung 甄志強 more opportunities in good leading leading roles. I think Lawrence is better off staying with ATV then switched to TVB.
    At least at ATV, he is given more screen time either in occasionally good leading or major supporting roles while in TVB he is given very minor supporting roles.
    I dont know what are the real reasons of why he is not given opportunities in good leading roles while other actors are.
