Anthony_WongAnthony Perry (born 2 September 1961), better known professionally as Wong Chau-Sang (黃秋生) or Anthony Wong, is a Hong Kong Film, Stage and TV Awards winning British-Hong Kong actor, screenwriter and film director.

Wong is perhaps best known in the West for his roles in the 1992 action film Hard Boiled, the 2002 critically acclaimed Infernal Affairs, and as General Yang in the 2008 Hollywood film The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. In 2015, he won Best actor for Lord of Shanghai. After completing ATV’s training programme, he continued his training at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. He had stated in an interview that his mixed ethnicity initially caused him to be typecast as a villain, due to institutionalised racism in the Hong Kong film industry during this period. He, however, won an Hong Kong Film Award for his performance as a real-life serial killer, who made meat buns from his victims’ flesh, in The Untold Story in 1993.
