August Man Malaysia’s 2014 Men of the Year inductee and cover personality for Issue 114 in March, Lawrence Wong, has recently been named Montblanc Malaysia’s first Friend of the Brand, coinciding with his incredible versatility with a wealth of experience as he took on diverse roles as an actor back home in Malaysia, as well as in Singapore and Thailand.
Since his recent quantum leap into the China market in 2016, his relentless pursuit to create new heights served him well in subsequence appearances in both TV and film, including The Story of Yanxi Palace, one of the most anticipated Chinese drama broadcasting in over 80 countries worldwide, in which Wong plays a high imperial guard depicted with a highly trusted character by the emperor during the Qing dynasty.
Wong will next appear in two Chinese drama series, Love and Passion and One Boat, One World of which he secured the lead role – timely for his new role as Montblanc Malaysia’s Friend of the Brand.
