Julian Cheung Chi-Lam (Chinese : 張智霖; popularly known as Chilam) was born on August 27, 1971 in Hong Kong. Chilam is a famous Hong Kong movie star and singer. When Chilam was 16 years old, he migrated to Sydney, Australia with his father. He went to Pendle Hill High School in Australia. Chilam's parents had a divorce when he was 13, and afterwards, both of them had a second marriage, yet 13 years later, with Chilam's help and effort, they came back together and got re-married in 1996.

At the end of 1990, Chilam was 19. He just finished high school and was ready to enter university in Australia. That was his summer vacation, so he went back to Hong Kong to visit some friends and relatives. There he met his cousin, Anna Ueyama (上山安娜), who grew up with Chilam under the same roof like brother and sister. Anna introduced Chilam to his first manager, Tony. Then Chilam recorded his very first album - a duet album with Maple Hui Chau-Yi (許秋怡). Chilam was so interested in this show biz career, even though his father preferred him to go back for school. Yet his wonderful father gave Chilam three years to try out and if he doesn't succeed, he will have to go back for his university study. He succeeded with his very first album, "Modern Love Story", released from Fitto in 1991. This album was on IFPI Album Sales Chart for 11 weeks. That still holds the IFPI record for newcomer singers. In 1992, Chilam starred in his first TVB series "Peak of Passion". In 1993, Chilam acted in his very first movie, "A Warrior's Tragedy". In 1995, he starred in the TVB hit drama "Cold Blood Warm Heart" (天地男兒), his brilliant performance made him a household name and boosted his career in the Hong Kong entertainment industry. After CBWH, he transitioned into movies such as Perfect Match and Comic King. He returned to TVB in 2000 in the series Return of the Cukcoo (澳門街). Currently, he is acting in several TVB dramas such as "Take My Word For It" and "Shades of Truth".

In 1993, Chilam met his current girlfriend, Anita Yuen Wing-Yee. Anita is a former Miss Hong Kong and now a famous actress. Chilam first worked with Anita in one of his MTV shooting "Miss You Much".
