Ng's older brother is former Charlie Ng Kai-ming, who also worked for TVB, but left the acting world in 1994 to become a stockbroker and now owner of a restaurant chain with locations in Hong Kong and China.[1]


Lawrence's first appearance was in 1986 in the TV series The Feud of Two Brothers (流氓大亨); he was cast as villain Chung Wai-shun. Wai-shun had conflicts with his brother, even though the latter cared about him. As the villain, Lawrence killed his own father but was found not guilty, caused a girl who had a crush on him to become disabled,[clarification needed] and left a woman (Dodo Cheng) paralyzed.

The series' most popular moment was when lead star Alex Man (Fong Kan-cheung), a method actor, actually attacked and choked Ng as the cast tried to restrain the two from hurting each other during a scene when Wai-shun was found not guilty of murdering his own father. Ng nearly quit the show from the incident but Man apologized and convinced him to stay on the show as well as reportedly gifting him an antique watch.
