Lot of actors appeared in two or more Yuen films, but that doesn't make them a clan member. Donnie Yen, Chan Chi Man (Chen Zhi Wen) and Leung Kar Yan played important roles in Yuen films.

- Donnie Yen appeared in 'Drunken Tai Chi', 'Iron Monkey' (1993), 'Tiger Cage' (1988), 'Tiger Cage II' (1990) , 'Heroes among Heroes' (1993) and in 'Wing Chun' (1994).

- Donnie's friend, Mandy Chan Chi Man is in 'Drunken Tai Chi', 'Iron Monkey', 'In the Line of Duty 3' (1988) and in 'Taoism Drunkard'.

- Leung Kar Yan is in Miracle Fighters, Legend of a Fighter, The Postman strikes back (1982), Last Hero in China (1993), Tiger Cage and Dreadnaught.

Altough they are important to these films, you can't call them clan members! I'm not sure, if this can be said of two other actors, who only appeared in small roles.

The first is Ho Tin Shing. He is beaten up by Fung Hak On in 'Legend of a Fighter', he is one of Jackie's friends in Drunken Master, he plays a monk in 'Shaolin Drunkard', he steels the golden teeth of the deceased in 'Taoism Drunkard' and he takes a sniff on Tong Jing's bottom in 'The Buddhist Fist'. He is the assistant director of many Yuen / Ng See Yuenfilm.


The other is Tong Jing  (Tang Jing). She sells incense in 'The Buddhist Fist', in 'Drunken Master' she is kissed by Jackie, in 'Magnificent Butcher' she is stolen by Feng Ke An and in 'Dreadnaught' she is the sweetheart of Yuen Biao (Yuan Biao). From Riches to Rags (1980) seems to be the only not-Yuen film she made when she was an adult.

Altough both are related to Ng See Yuen too, I would like to see them as a part of the clan, because they both appear in the most important Yuen-films.


One can say that the Yuen's have been important to the genre. The real clan films are really something special, there ideas are brilliant. As far as I know, there are no other good examples of this kind of Crazy-Kung Fu. It's a great pity that most of us don't understand Cantonese or Mandarin, because much is lost when you have to read subtitles or have to listen to a dubbed version.

I wish all of you great fun!
