Bruce Leung is a well known actor/martial artist for Hong Kong Kung Fu films fans. His participation to the huge success that is Kung Fu Hustle brought him back in the spotlight after more than 10 years away from the industry. We had the chance to meet this legendary actor for an interview. Although he may not be the most talkative artist in the business, his short answers carry more weight than many newcomers!

Going in the industry through the power of fists

HKCinemagic : You were trained in martial arts by your father, Leung Siu Chung. At what age did you start and how would you define the style of Kung Fu you learned?
Bruce Leung : In fact, it was my uncle. But how do you know about that?
HKCinemagic : I made some research on you!
Bruce Leung : All my family is dedicated to martial arts. It's my grandfather who taught my uncle and then he taught it to me. My mother - in - law did also. As for the style, it's a northern style.



HKCinemagic : You've shown some very impressive kicking skills. Which fellow actors did impressed you in this category?
Bruce Leung : My good kicks are based on the style of Kung Fu I trained in. As for the one who impressed me, there was Wang In Sik, Kam Chun Bak (Korean), Bruce Lee, and most recently Donnie Yen.
HKCinemagic : How did you make the transition from learning martial arts to be an actor?
Bruce Leung : I became a stuntman at 15 years old. When was around 20, I liked to fight in the street and it's this way I was discovered by a director and got acting parts.

HKCinemagic : Let's talk of your Golden Harvest period. How did you join the company?
Bruce Leung : I was at Shaw Brothers first, then went to Golden Harvest and finally went a bit everywhere after.
HKCinemagic : One of your best works for Golden Harvest was Hapkido. How was the fight you did with Sammo Hung?
Bruce Leung : We were both choreographers on this one but with different styles. Samo was more performing, and I was more realistic.
HKCinemagic : Were you always supposed to die so quickly?
Bruce Leung : I wasn't an actor at that time but they needed someone to play this character so they grabbed me in and I did it.
HKCinemagic : What about Broken Oath? First, where was it shot?
Bruce Leung : Part in Hong Kong, part in Korea . But we had difficulty with the director, he was very stubborn, we did not understand what he wanted, whatever we did, he was not satisfied so at the end I thought “Let's fight for real to see what you want.” (laughs).
