  • Hawick Lau Hoi-wai (劉愷威) is a Hong Kong actor and singer, most famous for his performances in the TVB series A Kindred Spirit, Virtues of Harmony and its sequel Virtues of Harmony II, and My Family. He is the son of Hong Kong actor Lau Dan, with whom he co-starred in A Kindred Spirit, Virtues of Harmony and Virtues of Harmony II. In A Kindred Spirit, they actually played father and son. Hawick grew up in Hong Kong, but travelled throughout Asia with his father when he would do promotions and performances for the shows he starred in. Hawick studied architecture at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada before returning to Hong Kong to pursue his acting career. He is also a singer, having released several albums in the late 1990s, but they were not as successful as his acting career. When he debuted in the late 1990s, TVB had named him as one of the five New Young Dragons - a group of young actors that the network to push to turn into stars. In 2003, after having a significant amount of success at TVB, he took a leave to go and film in Mainland China, where there was an opportunity to make more money. In addition to this roles in television series for TVB, he has travelled to Singapore to star in the local production Destiny, which is produced by MediaCorp. He has also starred in a number of motion pictures, and won critical acclaim for his role in The Spy Dad. In April 2006, Hawick signed with ATV, the other main television station and production studio in Hong Kong for one year to star in a new series. At the press conference and contract signing, Hawick was asked if he’s asked his dad, Lau Daan, for his opinion on switching to a different company and if TVB will be mad at him for switching. Hawick replied, “My mom has always complained that she wasn’t able to see me a lot. Working back in HK works out real well for me. As for TVB, TVB is my maternal home. I’m very thankful for them in giving me so many opportunities. Maybe in the future we might be able to work together again. Besides, TVB is a big company. I’m sure I wouldn’t have made them angry. " In November 2006, Hawick's first series with ATV, No Turning Back, began airing in Hong Kong. In the series, Hawick plays a villain who kills his entire family. He is also slated to star in several series in 2007, including a comedy with Patricia Liu. Ever since his move to act in mainland dramas, his popularity has dramatically increased amongst the Asian community. He was praised for his portrayal of the character Huo Dong Qing in the 2008 mainland drama 凤穿牡丹. He has also acted in a drama with Athena Chu called 一千滴眼泪 (A thousand tears). To this day, there has been no talk regarding another TVB drama collaboration. He also starred in the Chinese mainland TV series called Royal Embroidery Workshop or Feng Chuan Mu Dan in 2008 with Li Xiao Ran.
