Born in Hong Kong in 1958, Parkman Wong Pak-man entered the actor training program of TVB in 1977, acting in the station’s drama series upon graduation. He joined Shaw Brothers in 1980, playing a supporting role in The Informer (1980), starring Danny Lee. The next year, he served as Lee’s assistant director, beginning a long collaboration with the actor-director, working on such films as Mobfix Patrol (1981), Murderer Pursues (1981) and One Way Only (1981).
When Lee established his production company, Magnum Films, in 1987, Wong was called upon to direct the outfit’s first project, Final Justice (1988), for which Stephen Chow was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Hong Kong Film Awards and won in the same category at the Golden Horse Awards of Taiwan, paving the way for the actor’s road to superstardom. Wong played a key role in the company, serving in duties as varied as producer, production manager and scriptwriter. He also acted in most of Lee’s films, often playing his partner in the police force, in Law with Two Phases (1984), The Law Enforcer (1986), Parking Service (1986), Organized Crime and Triad Bureau (1994) and Twist (1995), for example.
Wong joined TVB in 2012 as actor, performing in drama series, often as crimes bosses or triad chieftains.
