Chow Yun Fat Cool Photos

Hong Kong male actress Chow Yun Fat was born in Lama Island on May 18, 1955. He left the island at 16 for the Kowloon Peninsula, where he drifted from from job to job - bell boy, waiter and many others before landing work as an extra at Hong Kong´s largest TV company, TVB. Then Chow Yun Fat enrolled in the actor´s training program, which was to lead him to appear in over 300 hours of television. The most successful of these shows was a series called Shanghai Town which was to make him a household name throughout South East Asia.

He became one of the East´s hardest working actors, starring in many excellent films including Hong Kong 1941 (1987); Love Unto Waste for director Stanley Kwan; Triads: the Inside Story for Taylor Wong (1988) and his own Favorite, Autumn Tale for Cheung Wun Ting. In all these films Chow´s extra ordinary dramatic range was made abundantly clear. In 1989, reunited with John Woo , Chow´s international reputation was finally secured with The Killer, an astonishing parable of violence, betrayal, vengeance and redemption which relied heavily upon the chemistry between director and leading man. Following this he took the role of idiot savant in Wong Jing´s God of Gamblers, which spawned a host of imitations. He then returned to work with Woo on Once A Thief, a dynamic action comedy, before the pair spent almost a year between 1991 and 1992 making the high-calibre shootout flick Hard Boiled, which has brought the director long overdue international recognition.

Chow Yun Fat rejoined Ringo Lam to make Full Contact, a grittily violent film which showed him in leaner, meaner form. The colourdrenched shootouts and explicit yet stylized violence once again rejuvenated the stagnant gangster genre. Since then Chow has starred in Treasure Hunt (1994), an odd hybrid of comedy and crime story which does see him briefly exhibit his cool, charismatic style on the right side of the law for once; and he after that completed the official sequel to God of Gamblers, directed by Wong Jing, and in 1995 he starred in the Woo produced gangster movie Peace Hotel. He is know making his American debut with The Replacement Killers (1997).

Andy Lau Hot Male Asian Actress

Top Asian Star Andy lau was born on September 27, 1961 in Hong Kong is a Hong Kong famous male artist. Although top asian star Andy Lau Tak-Wah is now a very famous actor and singer around Asia, he was born to a poor family in rural town Taipo in New Territories, Hong Kong. For two years, 10-year old Andy had to wake up early at 3 am to make eight trips everyday to fetch water for his family. It was not until 1980 that Andy sign up for TVB's 10th Acting Academy and became an actor. He also started his singing career in 1985.

Born Tak-Wah Lau into a life of poverty, Andy entered TVB's 10th Acting Academy in Hong Kong when he was about 18 years old (in 1980), beginning his career on a television series. Not content, though, he soon discovered film – or rather, the world of cinema discovered him. After landing a couple of bit parts, he got his first lead role in 1982's Lit Ying (Boat People) – the film's success entrenched Andy's status as popular movie star. Continuing to act both for film and television, he became one of TVB's prestigious Five Tigers, along with four other actors; but by 1988, Andy left TVB to work exclusively in film. That year he was nominated for Hong Kong's Golden Statue Award for his role in Wong Kar-wai's As Tears Go By. His career took a meteoric turn, and by 1995 he made a hugely popular film, Full Throttle, which was to become his highest-grossing box office hit. With over 90 films to his credit, Andy is nothing short of a sensation – his newest films, Love on a Diet and Full Time Killer, premiering next week, show that Andy Lauis not slowing down anytime soon.

Andy Lau has a second, and equally prosperous career as a musician, which he began in 1985. With countless albums in Mandarin and Cantonese, he's also done compilation albums and soundtracks, and has completed a Karaoke and VCD collection. He's also a big Elvis fan, and cherishes a large collection of the American legend's CDs. A role model like The King himself is surely a tough act to follow, but Andy Lau, also a film star and musician extraordinaire, has done the seemingly impossible. Move over Elvis.

Stephen Chow was 9 years old in1971 when Bruce Lee's triumphant Hong Kong film, "The Big Boss"debuted. This was Bruce Lee's introduction to the movie-going public inHong Kong and it was huge hit. Many children in Asia and around the world looked up to Bruce Lee, and Stephen was no different. Because Stephen respected Bruce Lee, he began to study martial arts. And it issaid that Stephen's friends were sometimes made to call him "smalldragon."

Stephen and his friend Tony Leung Chui-Wai auditioned for TVB (a television station in HongKong) acting school, in 1982, after graduating high school. However, he became a student of the night class by an acquaintance's introduction.Waise Lee Chi-Hung, of "A Better Tomorrow" fame, was a fellow classmate. The next year, Stephen was singled out to be the master ofceremonies of the children's program "430." Stephen was not fond ofchildren and this made it very difficult for him, but he took anunusual.attitude and faced a child in the program. His behavior became popular and he worked on this show for five years. He went on to variety programs and so on for several years after that, and gained more popularity and moved more to small parts from the "life trip" to the drama.

Stephen worked with Alex Man Chi-Leung and learned acting tips from Alex's advice. (Stephen played with Alex Man Chi-Leung in his movie debut, "He Who Chases After the Wind.") In 1988, Danny LeeSau-Yin (actor/director/producer whose most famous role is that of Chow Yun-Fat's cop pal in John Woo's "The Killer") cast Stephen for one of the leads in the movie "Final Justice." Stephen went on to win the Best Supporting Actor award of the Taiwan Academy Awards. It was his first film. His "Sit down, and drink tea, and eat even a manju" saying became popular.

Stephen appeared in both movies and TVB dramas for a while. His film parts increased gradually. At last , 1990's "All For The Winner" (a parody of Chow Yun-Fat's "God of Gamblers") was a huge hit.

His roles ranged from high school undercover detective in 1991's "Fight Back to School," period lawyer drama in 1993's "Justice, My Foot!" and period comedy in 1993's "Flirting Scholar." Stephen accomplished a great success at the box office, winning top spot for four consecutive years in Hong Kong . Of the above 3 films, only "All For the Winner" has been released in the theatres in Japan.
