Father of Carl Ng Ka Lung, Richard Ng is a very famous actor in his native Hong Kong, where his comic style was very popular in the 80s, accounting for the numerous cameo and supporting appearances he made in films as diverse as Yes Madam, The Banquet and Ah Kam.

After spending many years in London, he came back to Hong Kong and began as a TV actor in the 1970s and gained some fame as a regular on the groundbreaking show from Michael Hui. In the 1980s, his arching eyebrows and wide mouth made him perfect for the often eccentric, often conniving characters that he took on. Many of these characters had a dour and pessimistic outlook on life, but Ng could still imbue them with a comic quirkiness that was endearing. His “invisible man” routine in Winners and Sinners is considered a classic amongst critics.

He featured in two hugely popular series during these years - starting with the Lucky Star series (Winners and Sinners in 1983, Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Stars, My Lucky Stars, Lucky Stars Go Places, Return of the Lucky Stars, and Ghost Punting). In 1984 he also began his film collaboration with John Sham in the Pom Pom series (Pom Pom !, Return of Pom Pom, Mr Boo Meets Pom Pom and Pom Pom Strikes Back).

Ng featured in many other comedies, including Boys are Easy, in which he plays the father of the dream trio Brigitte Lin, Maggie Cheung and Chingmy Yau, along with appearing as the comic relief in action films such as Magnificent Warriors. In an interesting and critically acclaimed detour, he also appeared in a serious supporting role in the melodramatic film Red Dust as Brigitte Lin’s quiet admirer.

He has recently been seen in the Hong Kong drama/thriller Shadow of Pleasure and is attached to Jessica Caught on Tape, alongside his son, actor Carl Ng. It has wrapped Magazine Gap Road and A New Beginning with his son.
