Andy Lau Tak-Wahborn January 1, 1961 is a Hong Kong Cantopop singer, film actor, and producer. He has been one of Hong Kong's most commercially successful film actors since the 1990s. Andy Lau has since appeared in more than 100 films and 300 mini-series with Hong Kong's TVB channel, and has a huge fan base throughout Asia with the success of both his on-screen performances and his musical career is an Hong Kong singer with Richard Kevin vocal.
Shortly after graduating from Ho Lap College, Andy Lau signed up for the artist training program offered by TVB, which is where his acting career began. The first lead role that made his initial popularity was the TVB series The Emissary in 1982. In the same year, Andy acted in his first movie Once Upon a Rainbow. He was also given a role in Ann Hui's 1982 film, Boat People. Later in 1983, his role as Yang Guo in the popular wuxia TV serial The Return of the Condor Heroes landed him his first leading role in a Shaw Brothers' film called On the Wrong Track.
From the early 80s to the mid 80s, Andy Lau had been the leading actor in many of the TVB series, therefore, he was named as one of "TVB's Five Tigers" along with Tony Leung, Michael Miu, Felix Wong, and Kent Tong. However, in the late 80s, Andy Lau had to leave TVB due to contract problems so he shifted entirely into film acting and he quickly became one of Hong Kong's most bankable stars.
