Andy Lau Tak-Wah, a Hong Kong Cantopop singer, film actor, and producer is one of Hong Kong's most commercially successful film actors since the 1990s.
Andy Lau has since appeared in more than 100 films and 300 mini-series with Hong Kong's TVB channel, and has a huge fan base throughout Asia with the success of both his on-screen performances and his musical career.
He has been married to his long time Malaysian girlfriend Carol Chu since June 23, 2008, but the marriage and relationship, though rumored, have only been confirmed by Andy Lau in August, last month.
Andy Lau and Carol Chu made a public appearance together for the first time last month, after years of evading rumours of their relationship.
The couple returned to Hong Kong after attending the funeral of Carol Chu’s late father who passed away last month in Malaysia.
Andy Lau and Carol Chu's public appearance together has ended 24 years of public speculation about the couple who have been linked together, but kept their relationship a secret until recently.
According to the rumour mill, Andy Lau has kept his relationship with Carol Chu a secret to protect her from threats by certain underworld figures, fans and harassment from the media.
There are also reports that Andy Lau has received an 'indecent proposal' by a female Malaysian Datuk to spend the night with her after she became infatuated with him.
Here is a short biography of Carol Chu:
It is believed that Carol Chu was born in Penang in 1967. She is the 4th child among 5 daughters in her family. Her father owns a seafood restaurant and moved the family to Kuala Lumpur when she was still young.
There are very little details about Carol Chu's career background but some say she was a part time model who was crowned Miss Modern Malaysia in 1986. Others, however, dispute this saying she was just a runner-up.
There are also many versions of how Carol Chu met Andy Lau, but which one is true, is still a mystery. She has, thus far, kept a very low profile and has not been known to speak to the media. Some sources say Andy Lau met Carol Chu when he was holidaying in Malaysia. Another claimed Carol Chu met Andy Lau in Hong Kong when she was attending a beauty seminar. Whatever the case, we wish the couple the very best in their marriage.
