First Encounter - Tony Leung The Actor
he seeks and finds the comfort zone
to carry on our conversation
It was in Singapore that I first met Tony Leung, one of Hong Kong's best actors. The following is lifted from http: //orientalis.wordpress.com/
Tony Leung’s talent is undeniable - arguably the world’s best actor in the judgement of many. This Hong Kong native is lauded the world over for the soulful expressions conveyed by his eyes alone. Most Westerners are familiar of Mr. Leung through his collaborations with director Wong Kar-Wai’s many art house flicks. Most recently he’s appeared in Andrew Lau’s “Infernal Affairs” (remaded as Scorsese’s “The Departed”, though the original is much better) , Zhang Yimou’s “Hero”, Wong Kar-Wai’s “2046″ . To date, Mr. Leung has not ventured into any English speaking roles due to what he considers as a dirth of quality roles given to Asian actors in Hollywood. However, this might change as there are rumors of his English film debut in a lead as a detective.
