Sean Lau Ching-wan (劉青雲, born 16 February 1964) is a Hong Kong actor who has acted in both films and television series.

He won Best Actor in the 2007 and 2015 Hong Kong Film Awards and in the 2000 and 2007 Golden Bauhinia Awards.

Lau was born in Hong Kong in 1964. He joined the TVB acting classes in 1983 and made his first appearance on television in the following year in the drama Draw Out the Rainbow. Dark-skinned with no matinee-idol look, he struggled to be cast as a leading man until he received the lead role in the immensely popular stock market drama The Greed of Man (1992), where he acted opposite Adam Cheng. His wife, Amy Kwok, who won the Miss Hong Kong Pageant in 1991, is also a well-known former television actress and co-starred with him on The Greed of Man. Lau starred in two series with ATV in 1991 and again 2000.

Lau is one of a handful of Hong Kong actors who has made the successful transition from television to film; since 2000 he is now exclusively a film actor. [wikipedia]
