Biography:
  Portly, affable scene-stealer and Milkyway regular Lam Suet was born in Tianjin. He came to Hong Kong as a youth in 1979 to receive inheritance money left by his grandfather. Soon after, all the money had been squandered and Lam had to work various odd jobs to make a living. In the mid-eighties he got employment on movie sets through the help of friends. He's done practically everything, from lighting and props to stage manager and set and script supervisor. Lam gradually developed an interest in acting and, by his own account, pestered various directors until they relented and gave him tiny bit roles. There are two pivotal people in Lam's acting career. The first is Stephen Chow, who befriended him in his early days as a crew member and cast him in movies like God of Cookery (1996) and Kung Fu Hustle (2004). The second person is, of course, director Johnnie To. Lam has been in over 80 films since 1996 and at least 20 of those have been directed or produced by To. The most notable To-Lam collaborations include The Mission (1999), which garnered Lam Best Supporting Actor nominations at the Hong Kong Film Awards and the Golden Horse Awards, and PTU (2003). Lam was nominated for a Golden Horse Best Supporting Actor Award and took home the Golden Bauhinia Best Supporting Actor Award for his role in PTU as a cop who loses his gun, though he arguably should have been in the Best Actor category. He has also had interesting roles in movies like Wu Yen (2001), as the effeminate Prime Minister, and in Diva - Ah Hey (2003), in which he played Charlene Choi's loving and supportive papa. Lam has been married for almost a decade. His wife is 10 younger than him and comes from the same hometown. (Yinique 2005)
