Leung Tony Ka Fai

Tony Leung Ka-fai is a Chinese film actor. He has 8 wins and 15 nominations for acting.

Because he is often confused with actor Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Tony Leung Ka-fai is known as "Big Tony", while Tony Leung Chiu-Wai is known as "Little Tony", nicknames which correspond to the actors' respective physical statures.

Leung has been in the film industry for more than 25 years, with a variety of roles under his belt. His debut film was Burning of the Imperial Palace (1983), where he played the Xianfeng Emperor. He would later work with Chow Yun-fat in three films, Prison on Fire (1987), A Better Tomorrow 3 (1989), and God of Gamblers Returns (1994). He also appeared as Joyce Godenzi's husband in She Shoots Straight, Joyce's trademark film.

In 1991, Leung went to France to appear in Jean-Jacques Annaud's The Lover, based on Marguerite Duras's novel, as the older lover of a young teen schoolgirl, who was played by British actress Jane March.

After so many performances and roles, he starred in the international horror feature film Double Vision with American actor David Morse.

Leung's ongoing career has seen him star in films such as The Myth (2005), Everlasting Regret (2005) and Election (2005).

Married with twin daughters

After he graduated from college, he entered a training program for actors at the Hong Kong TVB Acting School. He dropped out after 9 months because he needed to make a living.

In 1984, the director Lee Hang-Sheng, who was the father of Leung's girlfriend at the time, cast him as the lead in his film "The Burning of the Imperial Palace." He walked away with the first Hong Kong film award for Best Actor from his performance.

Nominated for the best leading actor award at the Golden Horse Film Festival for Mandarin Chinese-language films for his role as a gangster in Triad movie Election
