Back in the '80s, Hongkong actor Alex Man, 63, was a big star in TVB and had starred in a series of high-profile productions.
Alex also mentored a number of up-and-coming artistes, including future comedy legend Stephen Chow. According to reports, Alex thought so highly of Stephen that he made sure to put in a good word for Stephen with every director that he worked with.
The men became pals but rumours of a falling out between the two started swirling in the early ‘90s.
Recently, Hongkong actor Wong Yat San, who made his name as a supporting actor in many Stephen Chow movies, touched on Alex and Stephen’s alleged falling out in a new episode of his online show where he shares snippets and anecdotes about Hongkong showbiz movies.
