Biography

Elvis Tsui has always been a supporting actor, but always an essential part of the cast, one who can turn a dull film into an interesting thing to look at and keep you on the edge of your seat for 90 mins. Even if his characters were some big brutes or crazy baddies, he always instilled something that separated them from the common bad guys.

Often cast as a baddie in films like The Lovers, Prison on Fire II, Tragic Hero or Seventh Curse, Tsui was also able to stay in the other side and deliver a great performance as a good guy, like in God Of Gamblers' Return, Dragon Inn or Gunmen. Yet this black and white simple division doesn’t do justice to this actor who has generally created ambiguous characters.

Tsui considered Long Arm Of The Law II as his first film, although he’d been already in the film industry for 5 years. With Michael Mak, Tsui made the series The Long Arm of the Law and Sex and Zen, as well as To Be Number One and many other good films. Mak was actually Tsui’s mentor and really launched his career in 1987.

Later, between 1992-1994 -at the peak of the wuxiapian craze- Tsui really was in every period film. He looks like a martial art expert, but he totally refutes that, explaining he just trains during production. The rest is called the magic of cinema. Tsui takes more care of is body than his kung fu skills actually -- he began as a model… and even had long hair.

In 1993, he was nominated for Best Supporting Role at the HK films Awards for the film All Men Are Brothers : Blood Of The Leopard and for Viva Erotica in 1997.

In France and the West in general, Tsui is most famous for some jaw-dropping roles in Category 3 films. He is a super sex acrobat in Michael Mak’s Sex and Zen, or as a man curse by a Thai witch and whose head become a penis in Cash Chin’s The Eternal Evil of Asia. Maybe the most surprising role was when Tsui played himself in Derek Yee’s Viva Erotica, a flick that parodies the local cinema industry and its porn productions.

Tsui doesn’t look back in anger and embraces all his films, but have turned the page on the exploitation flicks.

Currently based in Beijing, Tsui works mostly on TV productions and rarely comes back to haunt the silver screen.
