Known as "Gor-Gor" to his fans, Leslie Cheung is perhaps one of the best singers in Hong Kong entertainment. Born in 1956, the youngest of 10 children, Cheung made a name for himself in singing and acting. His breakthrough acting role came in 1986 as Ti Lung's police officer brother in A Better Tomorrow (1986). He also was one of the first publicly gay entertainers in Hong Kong and was met with acceptance instead of rejection.
Sadly, after suffering from depression for more than a year, on April 1, 2003, the entertainment world lost a legend as Leslie Cheung committed suicide. His memory as an actor and singer will live on forever.
