Born and raised in Hong Kong, Leung’s early life was marked by financial struggles. After his father, an amateur gambler, abandoned them when Leung was still young, his mother raised them by herself – an experience which left Leung feeling isolated as a child; later found in acting a way to overcome his shyness and showcase his talents.
Since dropping out, he has explored various jobs. These included working as a grocer’s runner for his uncle’s shop and showroom salesman in Hong Kong shopping centers. Here he met future star and comedian Stephen Chow who encouraged him to pursue acting, prompting him to enroll for TVB’s acting course as a result.
He has appeared in over 70 films during his career and received critical acclaim for each role he has taken on, such as The Ferryman, Hero, and In the Mood for Love for which he won Best Actor at Cannes.

Furthermore, Carina Lau is his wife; they share an elegant apartment together as well as houses scattered across China with beautiful gardens adorning both locations.
