Off the screen it is a different matter. He was educated in HK, the U.K. and the United States and when he returned to HK afterwards he began in TV and also edited a popular HK magazine (City Magazine).

He began appearing in films in the early 80’s and developed his comedic persona as the curly haired fast talking infantile man/child. But, he also produced.

He also co-hosted some Hong Kong Film Awards ceremonies (including that for 1992). In the mid-80’s he helped Sammo Hung and Dickson Poon establish the D&B film company. Then in the decade of the 90s he seems to have lost interest in films to some degree when he became very involved with the Pro-Democracy movement in HK.
