Three time winner of the Best Actor award at the Hong Kong Film Awards, Anthony Wong has successfully established himself as one of the most recognizable actors in the Hong Kong film industry.
After starting his acting career on ATV, Anthony filmed his first feature length movie. It was after this that he felt his acting skill was not good enough and so he decided to join the acting program at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, where he subsequently became one of the first graduates of the academy. In his early acting career, he had been typecast as villain and supporting roles. It was only after his breathtaking performance in “The Untold Story” (1993) that the Hong Kong public started to recognize his acting talent and this granted him the opportunity to win his first Best Actor award. Since then, Anthony has appeared in numerous movies in a wide range of genres including action, drama, comedy and thriller. His performance has since become a “quality guarantee”. In over 30 years of acting, Anthony has won and been nominated numerous times for awards in film, theatre and TV. In May 2013, Anthony Wong, along with Olivia Yan and Joyce Cheung, founded Dionysus Contemporary Theatre - combining decades of performance experience in training courses as means of improving the quality of Chinese Theater.
Aside from his acting career, Anthony faced many challenges in his personal life. Born to an English father who left when Anthony was very young, Anthony was raised by his mother alone. To support the family, Anthony had to work at very young age. After a BBC story on Anthony’s search for his family was published in 2018, he reunited with his half-brothers in Australia.
Anthony’s story is a tale of resilience that emanates from adversity and is nothing short of awe inspiring. So how did the absence of his father affect his life? How did he overcome the racism that he encountered for being multiracial in Hong Kong? Being one of the most controversial actors in Hong Kong, how would he deal with all the negativity? How did he surmount all the ups and downs in his life and career? Come join us to learn about Anthony’s journey as an actor and hear about his life story.
