        (Man Chi Leung, Wan Ziliang, Man Tze Leung)

                  Actor, Entrepeneur

 

                                    One of Hong Kong's most intriguing actors, Golden Horse Award winner Alex Man 

                                     was prominent in 1980's TVB dramas. He made his big screen debut in Ann Hui's

                                    The Secret (1979), and had early roles in period martial arts productions and erotic

                                      New Wave films. As his career progressed he became skilled at playing extremely

                                    vicious villains in the gangster and crime genre. A man who once vomited on co-star 

                                      Stephen Chow during the taping of a TV series, Alex's deep immersion into his

                                                           roles has provoked speculation that he is indeed crazy.

                                                                                                      

                                       Alex Man married actress Tien Niu in 1989 after starring together in TVB's The

                                  Justice of Life (their wedding ceremony was broadcast live on television by TVB). He 

                                    and Tien Niu split up in 1996, and in 2001 he wed a young airline hostess he met on 

                                   a flight. By the mid 90's Alex had essentially retired to focus on his Mainland clothing 

                                    business, a fashion line using his English name with specialty retail outlets in parts 

                                   of China. Now residing in Singapore, he continues to expand his clothing line to other

                                                    markets while acting in Singaporean TV dramas and telefilms. 

                                           Alex also pursues other business interests in the Mainland, and his face is  

                                                prominently featured on bottles of a Chinese brand of mineral water. 

                                                                 

                                      Though Alex has been away from the HK entertainment scene in recent years, he

                                         has accepted a few roles from some of his industry friends. Longtime admirer 

                                    Stephen Chow invited Alex to be in his film The King of Comedy (1998), but due to 

                                   schedule conflicts he wasn't able to appear. However, Alex did emerge as a recurring

                                             character in two Young and Dangerous films and the series spin-off 

                                                                                 Born to Be King (2000)
