Brian Thomas Burrell (Chinese: 布偉傑, born March 23, 1972) is a Hong Kong American actor best known for his roles in Cantonese television productions in Hong Kong. Burrell is also one of the few foreign actors in Hong Kong broadcaster TVB's artiste profiles over the years.
Burrell was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, and graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Chinese Literature and Asian Research in 1999. Burrell first went to Hong Kong in 1995 to teach English, and permanently left the US for Hong Kong in 1999. He can also speak and read in Cantonese, Mandarin and Cambodian.
Burrell began his acting career in 2001, when he took a minor role on TVB's A Case of Misadventure (Chinese: 騎呢大狀). Burrell eventually gave up his job in the information technology sector to become an actor, and was later signed on by TVB as an artiste.
He was introduced to television acting by another foreign actor in Hong Kong: Gregory Charles Rivers. Since entering TVB, Burrell has acted in many different television series.
As one of the few non-Chinese actors regularly appearing in Hong Kong TV, Burrell was featured in an in-depth interview and feature story 'Hello Neighbour' in the October 2007 issue of Muse.
Since entering TVB, he has acted in many different television series, participated in a number of advertisements, and been an emcee and guest for a lot of variety shows and company events.
