Leung’s exquisite acting skills had earned him many awards and brought him onto the global stage with flying colours. His endless pursuit of a higher level of artistic performance over the past few decades is an exemplar of Hong Kong actors’ spirit and Hong Kong’s cultural richness. We are so proud of him and would like to send him our heartfelt congratulations on this hard-earned and well-deserved title.”
