Bio
Yu Wang (WANG Yu / 王正權) is a Chinese actor, born on Sunday, March 28, 1943, in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province of China.
Trivia
  • Charged with murder in 1981 in Taiwan but freed due to lack of of evidence.
  • Former Hong Kong swimming champion
  • During his Shaw days, most of his movies were directed by legendary swords fighting director, Cheh Chang and he only had one movie with Shaw's queen swords woman, Pei-pei Cheng of 'Wo hu cang long (2000)' in 'Jin yan zi (1968)', the one and only movie an actor has top-billing credit and a more important role over her.
  • After "The Chinese Boxer" ('Long hu dou (1970)'), he broke his contract with Shaw (HK) and went over to Taiwan where he acted and directed most of his movies there, mostly for Golden Harvest (which later produced Bruce Lee) and independent companies. Despite that he lost his legal battle and was banned from making films in HK, he gained more fame and fortune as an independent. Unfortunately most of those films are not available now. Most of those with Shaw Brothers were released recently.
  • Made his directing debut and acted in "The Chinese Boxer" ('Long hu dou (1970)') (his last film with Shaw), the 1st real Kung-fu movie (non-swords, only bare hand and kicks fighting), a new genre in HK action movies. It become a new box office success and paved the way for the future Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan for such a genre.
  • Gained super stardom status as the "One-armed Swordsman" ('Du bi shuang xiong (1976)'), the first HK movie to reach 1 Million Dollar Box office record. He continued to act as the One Armed Swordsman or the One Armed Boxer roles in a few more movies, including one with Japan's famous Blind Swordman.
  • Started his career as a contract actor with Shaw Brothers (HK), probably the only Shaw actor to gain a lead role from the very 1st movie and became the 1st Screen Hero of modern Chinese Cinema as well as the most popular and famous Chinese actor from 1965 until Bruce Lee's appearance in 1971.
  • Father of Linda Wong.
