Richard Yap became popular as an actor via My Binondo Girl where he played Kim Chiu‘s father, Chen Sy without knowing that through this role he would gain wide recognition from fans then continuously made several appearances in ABS-CBN.

It said that it was never his dream to become part of showbiz industry. He was already 44 when he was “discovered” as an actor.  His unexpected success as an actor comes when he got a call from a friend, who is also an acquaintance of the production manager of “My Binondo Girl” who was looking for a Chinese guy to play a role in the said romantic comedy television drama. A friend asked him to audition and at first he was hesitant because he had no experience in acting, and also because of his age. Since he never dreamt of becoming an actor, not in his wildest dreams did he ever think he could be one, so you could also call him an “accidental actor.”
