This is all collected throughout years from various news sources. As his role changes from film to film
(See Films), he is bounded to attract new friends and lose touch with old ones.
But looking at recent photo postings, he has retained connection with most of his old colleagues and found new connection
through words of friends.
Tony is very close to his mom.
Tony's younger sister was married in 1986. She had a daughter and a son. She now lives in Hong Kong. (updated 9/28/2008).
These days, after Jacky started his family, they don't see each other
as much as they used to. Back in the early 90s, they are two unmarried
guys who liked to hang out in the karaoke bars. They actually
worked together several times in the late 80s - early 90s, playing supporting
roles in B-rated films. But they are quite successful in doing
that. Tony won two Best Supporting Actors Awards from Hong Kong Film
Awards, so did Jacky. If Jacky hasn't given up his film career for
music, he could be another accomplished actor like Tony today.
Tony had known Kenny for years, but they never got close as they have
now. I am not sure what started their friendship - maybe they found
something in common after a few drinks and talks about how depressing life
is about. (just rambling here) Kenny is now one of Tony's best
friends. They have spotted going to pubs, and car-racing (model car,
not the real ones). Tony plays golf in Kenny's golf
club when he finds time.
Tony and Stephen were very good friends back in the days when they are
nobodies. They got to know each other before entering TVB training
school. We should thank Stephen for inspiring Tony to apply to TVB
training school, else he would never turn out to be an actor.
After they get into TVB, their life took quite different path. Tony
was an instant sensation. But it took almost 8 years before Stephen
made it big time. And looking back today, you wonder about how did
they do it. Determination and persistence is apparently the key to
success, and nothing is yours forever - success comes and
goes. To stay on top, you have to push yourself constantly to get
better. But frankly, they should consider themselves lucky - many
people have dreams of becoming an actor, only special few made it this
far, and much less stayed as long as they had. Nowadays,
Tony and Stephen have their own sets of friends they hang out.
Tony's first sweetheart - on paper at least - he had one or two
girlfriends before Margie, but that's something he never talked about.
What's so special about Margie Tsang? Tony & Margie
broke up three times, but each time they came back for each other.
An ambitious and career-minded Tony had little time for Margie and it's
only their love that kept them together for all those years. From
the day they got to know each other to the days they parted, the
high drama was played on a public display and chronicled in every gossip
magazines. Come to think about it, all throughout Tony's
professional life, his love story is often
the headline news more so than the films he is in. Though
not a desirable spotlight, but I guess he should be thankful people are
interested in him. Fame and fortune is really a double wedged sword
黎美嫻 Kitty Lai
Kitty fell in love with Tony during New Heavenly Sword and
Dragon Sabre (1986). It's one of those Tony & Margie
cooling off periods. Their love affair lasted only a year. But
it's also the talk of the town since NHSDS was well-received. The
unfortunate end of their romance has much to do with the irresponsible and
irrational behavior of Tony. But you can't hope something to work if
it's never meant to be. Tony's heart is with Margie.
He went back to her after Police Cadet 1988.
劉嘉玲 Carina Lau
Tony's wife now. They met in the early 80s, and married in 2008.
While this partnership has been rocky at times, it's sustaining
and growing against all odds.
