Mr. Jimmy Wong Yue
Original name Wong Jing-kuen, Jimmy Wong Yue was actor, director and script-writer. Graduated from Shanghai’s College of Physical Education, he was also a swimming champion. When Shaw Brothers started to recruit new actors, Wong came off with flying colours and landed the leading role of the film "Tiger Boy" (1964). Wong's strong and muscular build was a perfect embodiment of the virility of Chang Cheh's characters, in particular 1967's "The One-Armed Swordsman". Wong's stunning martial arts skills and vivid portrayal of the chivalry of ancient swordsmen made him the leading martial arts star of the 60s. He continued to act in a number of martial arts films including “The Assassin” (1967), “The Trail of the Broken Blade” (1967) and “The Golden Swallow” (1968). In the 1970s, he moved to Taiwan and began directing his own films, among them were “The Chinese Boxer” (1970), “Beach of the War Gods” (1973) and “Four Real Friends” (1974). In 1980s, he quitted film to set up his own business, appearing only occasionally on screen. His recent works include “Wu Xia” (2011) and “Soul” (2013), which won him Best Actor in the Taipei Film Festival.
