US-based Hong Kong actor Daniel Wu, who  is known for films like New Police Story (2004) and One Nite In Mongkok (2004), visited the city earlier this week in what was his first trip to the SAR in almost four years.

The actor shared a series of selfies on his Instagram account in which he wore a mask and posed in front of landmarks that are quintessentially Hong Kong — a high-rise housing block, a stone wall tree, bamboo scaffolding on a building, a store selling retro knick-knacks, and JC Cube at Tai Kwun.

Wu, who began his film career in Hong Kong and is also an award-winning director, credited the city for giving him his start in the industry. “I spent 20 years of my life here and everything that I am today I owe to this city. I came here as a little innocent 21 year old and this place helped me find myself,” he said.

The actor was last seen in the Disney+ show American Born Chinese, in which he played Sun Wukong, aka The Monkey King, and co-starred with Oscar-winning actress Michelle Yeoh

Before coming to Hong Kong, Wu also met his other co-star from the show, Jimmy Liu, in Taipei. He is currently in Suzhou for the GT Show.
