His character in Happy Together was a gay, his partner played by Andy Lau was gay also, but neither actor knew he would be playing a homosexual.

In his last film Inner Senses his character was urged to commit suicide by the ghost of a jilted lover, but he survives. In real life Cheung’s ending was not so happy, he committed suicide by jumping from the 24th floor of the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong.
