Child Actor Twin Brothers: Gregory Lee and Augustine Lee
Lee Ka Ding (李家鼎) and Shih Ming’s (施明) twin boys, Augustine Lee (李泳漢) and Gregory Lee (李泳豪), were the true first generation of “Twins” in the entertainment industry. The twin brothers did not disappoint Lee Ka Ding’s reputation. As child actors, Augustine and Gregory were extremely cute in The Two Honorable Knights <絕代雙嬌>. Although one was fanatic and one was decadent, Augustine and Gregory shone in the limelight when they were children.
Gregory possessed a love for acting and when he was 5-years-old, he frequented TVB City with his parents. Gregory described those days as “happier than going to school.” In The Two Honorable Knights, Gregory played Siu Yu Yee; even his poses were extremely cute! Since Gregory’s mother, Shih Ming, possessed a “third eye” which allowed her to see spirits, Gregory was unafraid when he portrayed a child vampire in 1988.
Since Gregory did not find success in acting as adult, he turned to car racing in recent years. He frequently went to Huizhou, China for car drifting competitions. Last year, Gregory received the grand prize in the national China car drifting newcomer category.
When he was 7-years-old, Gregory learned horseback riding from his father, Lee Ka Ding. Inheriting Ding Yeh’s horsemanship skills, Gregory was known in the industry for his horseback riding skills as well. Difficult stunts while horseback riding were not an obstacle for Gregory.
While filming Blade Heart <血薦軒轅> in 2002, Gregory Lee successfully wooed Shirley Yeung (楊思琦) amidst many pursuers. This was considered an accomplishment. Unfortunately, Gregory and Shirley’s 9-year romance ended with the intrusion of Hong Kong diver, Andy Ng.
As a child, Augustine was cute and well-behaved. When he saw his mother act one time, he equated acting with playing. He flawlessly portrayed Fa Mo Kuet in The Two Honorable Knights.
Possessing “retrocognition powers,” Augustine claimed that he and Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐) were a married couple in their past lives. He started pursuing Gillian in earnest and waited for Gillian outside her apartment with roses. In return, Augustine received a cold treatment and remarks that he was “crazy.” In 2006, Augustine suddenly gave a cell phone to Wong Hei as a gift. Augustine’s sexual orientation remained a mystery.
Possessing a quiet personality and feminine appearance, he dressed in drag as a child. Hosting a children’s program, Augustine also dressed in drag. However it turned out that Augustine preferred to play with He-Man toys.
Since he was a young boy, Gregory enjoyed active sports and often sparred with his elder brother, Augustine. According to ex-girlfriend Shirley Yeung, Gregory often let Augustine have his way. Shirley claimed that Augustine almost broke Gregory’s arm in a fight.
