Tony Leung Ka Fai is a Hong Kong actor, director, producer and writer who is a four-time winner of the Hong Kong Film Award for Best Actor.

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.

After graduating from university, Leung entered a training program for actors at the Hong Kong TVB Acting School. He dropped out after 9 months,

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.

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.


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.
He was 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 the movie "Election".

He is married and has twin daughters.
