Richard Low used to act in the theatre circle before he joined the drama acting class. That got him noticed and he was signed up as an artiste.
Throughout his acting life, he mainly acted in baddie roles. It may be attributed to his looks but that did not deter him from working hard to change his image. Through toil and sweat, Richard finally garnered the Best Supporting Actor Award in Star Awards '97 for his role in SILVER LINING.
He finally got his wish fulfilled when he was cast as a male lead in MR OK.
That show made audience sit up and take note of him and changed their stereotypical
perception. Producers too took note of his performance and were soon asking him
to act in their shows.
