Gordon Lam Ka-tung (林家棟) is a Hong Kong actor, known for his supporting roles in films directed by Andrew Lau and Johnnie To.[1]


Lam graduated from TVB's 15th Artist Training Class in 1988. For the next seven to eight years, he was no more than an extra in most television productions. It wasn't until Lam's impersonation of Jacky Cheung that he began to catch the attention of Hong Kong audiences.

Lam was soon offered more supporting roles and the first TV series he starred in, Time Before Time, was one of the most popular serials of 1997. He has had the opportunity to appear in films as well, with small roles in Gen-X Cops (1999), The Kid (1999) and Infernal Affairs (2002).

In 2017, Lam won the Hong Kong Film Award for Best Actor for his performance in Trivisa (2016).[2]
