Lai Lok Yi was born on 15 June 1980 in Hong Kong into a very poor family with 5 members including himself, his parents, a younger brother and a big brother (He is the second child in the family). When he was a child, the whole family lived in a small flat in Hong Kong. His father worked very hard to buy a truck for delivery which helped to improve the life of his family. However, until he was 11 years old, his father died from cancer and after his father's death, his life and his family became worse and worse. His mother worked as an office cleaner and a street vendor to bring up three children. When he was at high school, he started to work part-time jobs to support his family. He worked 3 different jobs in a day when at high school. He even worked as a docker in 2 big supermarkets in Hong Kong, or taught children to earn money.
After graduating from Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Yau Tze Tin Memorial College, Lai worked in a bank in Hong Kong. But this job had so many pressures and he resigned. After that, Lai plucked up courage to sign up to attend Hong Kong TVB's Artiste Training School in 2001. After 3 failed interviews, he thought he could not have any chances, but suddenly he was chosen because his face looks like the late music star Danny Chan.
Actor career of Lai Lok Yi is a long way from his early rise to success and long plateau. After making cameo appearances in several dramas, Lai earned his first major supporting role in the sports drama Aqua Heroes while he was still a trainee. He graduated from the school in 2002. In 2003,he then starred in the idol drama Hearts of Fencing, leading a cast consisting entirely of rookies. Back then, when he debuted, he was grouped with fellow actors Raymond Lam, Ron Ng, Bosco Wong, Sammul Chan and Kenneth Ma to make up the “Olympic Six”. While the other five in the group have already reached male lead status, Lok Yi was still hovering in second and third line roles. People said that TVB did not intend to make his name although Lai Lok Yi had all the fundamentals to become a successful actor with his tall stature and handsome good looks. Until 2012, sitcom drama Come Home Love gained a big success, and Lai Lok Yi played the main role as John Ma who helped him become famous and gained numerous fans not only in Hong Kong, but in China and other countries in the Southeast Asia area. And then, he also joined in many successful dramas of TVB such as: My Unfair Lady, Daddy Cool, Presumed Accidents, The Tofu War . The main role (Wong Siu Ming) in The Tofu War helped him receive the TVB Anniversary Award for Most Popular Male Character 2017. Who Wants a Baby is the latest drama which he played as the main role. The drama is also successful and his role is favorited by audience. It assists him receive the nomination for Best Actor and Most Popular Male Character in TVB Anniversary Awards in the next year.
His real name is Lai Yat Sing which was named by his late father. The stage name "Lai Lok Yi" was named by his teacher. He chose his name while filling the form of attending the training artist class. He thought that this name will bring him the durability in the career.
Lai dated Tavia Yeung from 2008 to 2011. From 2011 to 2014, Lai dated Nicole Lee, a former Miss Hong Kong contestant and heiress to a Hong Kong-based beauty corporation. They married in November 2014. They have one son, born in 2017.
