  Hong Kong actor Anthony Wong spent decades looking for the father who left him as a child. Now, he says a BBC report on his search has helped him find a family who never knew him.


  It’s late March, and three men are gathered for a meeting they’d never thought they would have.


  One man is Anthony Wong, one of the most famous actors in the Chinese-speaking world, known for his roles in films like Infernal Affairs and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.


  The other two are silver-haired, 74-year-old Englishmen - Anthony’s two half-brothers that he had never met until last week.

  另外两人是的头发斑白的74岁英国人 - 黄秋生的素未谋面的两个同父异母的兄弟,直到上周他们才见面。

  "Amazing, impossible - a miracle" is how the actor, 56, described it.

  “令人惊叹,简直不可能 - 奇迹。”56岁的演员这样描述道。

  For decades, the celebrity looked for traces of his British father, who left him when he was four.


  Fragmented information from his Cantonese mother about the former Hong Kong government official had led him nowhere.


  He knew only his name - Frederick William Perry - and had some basic biographical details and a handful of photographs.


  Earlier this year, Anthony spoke to BBC Chinese about his search. He described how, without his father, he had grown up feeling "trapped in between" his British and Hong Kong identities, and how he hoped the internet would help bring him some answers.


  The day after the BBC published his story, a Facebook thread was set up by people wanting to help him. Three separate women following the page around the world began looking for information and passing it on to him.


  "New clues came almost every day," Anthony said.


  On 2 March, he sent another post saying that someone had found biographical information of his possible father and his English family.


  He could hardly dare to believe they were his relatives, but the names and years seemed to match perfectly.


  At the same time, John Perry, 74, was on a cruise ship in the Pacific with his twin brother, David.


  They picked up an email from a cousin in England saying there was "a rather sensitive matter I should know about", says John.


  Meanwhile, David’s son sent him a photograph, which showed Perry Sr holding Anthony as a baby.


  When they got back home to Melbourne, Australia, where they have lived for the past few decades, they watched the BBC story and saw a man who was, without question, their father.


  "We talked about it, Dave and I. And we decided we’d better come over and see him," said John.


  On 20 March, the three met in Hong Kong.


  "It was just incredible," Anthony said. "After all these years and suddenly it all happened in two weeks!"

  “这真是不可思议,”黄秋生说。 “这么多年后,这突然间都发生在两周内!”

  Sadly, Perry Sr had died in 1988. The Perry brothers say he had never once mentioned his second family.
