Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau’s accomplishments in singing and acting have made him arguably the most bankable star throughout Asia.
Born in Hong Kong in 1961, Andy Lau first enrolled in the Television Broadcast Limited (TVB) Artist Training Programme in 1981. On graduation, Lau was immediately recruited by the station and went on to act in fifteen television series, which earned him fame not only in his native Hong Kong, but also in Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan. Andy Lau gained instant critical recognition in 1982 for his work on Ann HUI’s Hong Kong Film Award winning ‘Boat People’.
Since then, Andy Lau has emerged as one of the hardest working actors, completing 115 movies between 1981 and 2004. Mr. Lau won the Best Actor Award at the coveted Golden Dragon Awards in Taiwan for his collective contributions to NG Siyuan’s ‘The Unwritten Law’ (1986), David LAI Tai Wai’s ‘Sworn Brothers’ (1986), David Lai and Taylor WONG’s ‘Tragic Hero’ (1986) and ‘Rich and Famous’ (1986). Andy Lau’s sensitive portrayal of a man who has 72 hours to live in Johnnie To’s ‘Running Out of Time’ (1999) earned him the Best Actor Award at the 19th Hong Kong Film Awards. A two-time Best Actor winner at the Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards for ‘A Fighter’s Blues’ (2000) and ‘Running on Karma’ (2004), Andy Lau has proved his acting versatility with a combination of sensitive character acting and demanding fight sequences. Lately, Andy Lau was awarded the Best Actor Award for ‘Running on Karma’ (2004) at the 23rd Hong Kong Film Awards for the second time in his career.
Andy Lau’s commitment to improve the quality of Hong Kong’s film industry has been uncompromising. In 1990, he set up his own company, ‘Teamwork’ not only to produce high-caliber local movies, but also give aspiring individuals the chance to develop their talents both before and behind the camera. This earned him the Swissair / Crossair Special Prize at the Locarno International Film festival for Hong Kong director Fruit CHAN’s ‘Made In Hong Kong’ (1997).
In addition to his film accomplishments, Andy Lau has made a phenomenal impact on Asia’s music scene. Dubbed one of the ‘Four Heavenly Kings’ along with Leon LAI, Jacky CHEUNG and Aaron KWOK, in 2001 Mr. Lau became a Guinness World Record holder as the artist with the most pop awards. Lau has received 292 music awards over the past 12 years including the MTV Movie Award for the ‘Most Multi-Talented Artiste in Asia’ (1998).
