Mr. Woo Fung
(1932 - )
Original name Wu Kai-sau, Woo Fung started his film career in 1953 as contract actor at Tai Seng Film Company. He was practically shot to stardom by playing the leading role in his debut movie "Man's Heart" (1953). During his Tai Seng period, he co-starred with Fong Yim-fun in many melodramas like “Grief-Stricken for My Husband” (1954) and “Life and Death Together” (1956). His collaboration with Patrick Tse Yin in films like “The Quarrelsome Couple” (1959) and “My Intimate Partners” (1960) proved his talents in comedic roles. In mid-1960s, the boom of youth films prompted Woo Fung to pair up with popular sing-song actress Josephine Siao Fong-fong in numerous films, including “I Love A-Go-Go” (1967), “The Fabulous Rendezvous” (1968), earning him the title of “Dance King Sau”. In the 1970s, when Cantonese cinema took a down turn, he joined Shaw Brothers and then moved onto television until today. His impressive filmography comprises more than 300 movies and Woo had co-starred with almost all the famous actresses of the time. His recent works include “Love Undercover 2: Love Mission” (2003), “Overheard 2” (2011) and TV episodes “Three Amigos Bon Voyage” (2013). In 2003, Woo was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Hong Kong Film Critics' Association.
