In the blink of an eye, Sean Lau (劉青雲) and Amy Kwok (郭藹明) are already celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary. Having met on the set of The Greed of Man <大時代> in 1992, the couple has been inseparable since – eventually tying the knot after six years of dating. Their status as Hong Kong’s model couple is undeniable, as they are known for their loving relationship.
To celebrate 20 years of marriage, they will have dinner with friends. Although there is no big celebration for the special occasion, Sean is considering bringing his wife to Finland to have a white Christmas, but he is deeply afraid of the cold. As for Amy’s wedding anniversary gift, he did not get her a big present because he usually gets her whatever she wants regularly, so he doesn’t have anything saved for special events or holidays.
However, Sean revealed he writes Amy a Christmas card every year. Although it is very commemorative, Sean tries not to be too sappy. Thus, he does not write, “I love you” on the card and will only write his name and “Merry Christmas.”
Despite his lack of love professions on the cards, he often declares his love for her publicly. The most classic example is when he won Best Actor in 2015 at the 34th Hong Kong Film Awards for his performance in Overheard 3 <竊聽風雲3>. When he accepted his award onstage, he thanked his wife for always being the woman behind him. “Every time I drive the spaceship and flies to who knows where in the universe,” he said, “you always have a way to make me return safely to earth.”
Amy was moved to tears in the audience. In addition to that time, Sean often flaunts their relationship on Instagram with corny captions. He once wrote, “If I could be with anyone, I’d still want to be with you,” and “Treat her like you’re trying to win her over.”
The actor attributes their smooth sailing marriage to Amy’s management of their family affairs, as well as her gentle and considerate nature. On top of that, the best friends reached a consensus early on in their marriage to not have children. Instead, they want to cherish their time together as a couple and live the lives of an ordinary couple, such as going to the market together. Sean believes that as long as his wife is by his side, he is the happiest and the most relaxed.
