Biography

To not be confounded with his homonym Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Tony LEUNG Kar-fai was born in 1957 in Hong Kong. Son of Western movies projectionnist, it is naturally that the young boy is attracted by the light of the cinema.

Adult, he followed courses of dramatic arts at the TVB... for nine months. He stoped his studies to form with several friends an arts and spectacles magazine. It is by this intermediary that he can approach the show business and engaged by the chinese Li Han-hsiang to play in his Burning Of The Imperial Palace. It is for this interpretation that Leung won the HK Award of the best actor in 1983. Because of the cold war between the two China, the actor was boycotted by the taiwanese distributors. Because of this loss of export earnings, the HK producers disparaged Leung during three years.

After these hard times, he was back in Prison On Fire of Ringo Lam in 1987 where he interprets a fragile prisoner that Chow Yun-fat helps. In France, one saw him for the first time as an incorruptible police officer in Gunmen of Kirk Wong. This time is the right and it was the climax of his career when he accepted the role of the Lover of Jean-Jacques Annaud who made him known in the whole world (what could have been done much earlier if he had played in the Last Emperor of Bertolucci, rather than to choose the Chinese version of Li Han-hsiang who had asked for him first). Able to interpret delicate noble, fragile prisoner, idealistic policer, valorous knights, weak characters (in the famous Eagle Shooting Heroes and Rose Noire)... Tony Leung Kar-fai played enormously until 1997. Now, after problems with Triads, his career is idling, and one can even hear him sing !....
