Biography

Although his family is from Canton, Yueh Hua was born in Shanghai, under the name of Liang Le Hua (a.k.a. Elly Leung).

After training at the Shanghai Music Institute, he came to Hong Kong in 1962. A year later he entered into the acting class by the Shaw Brothers after a stint with the Southern Drama Group. He was cast opposite the soon to be crowned "Queen of Kung-fu films" Cheng Pei Pei (star of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon") first in: "Princess Iron Fan", then in "Come Drink With Me", considered by many to be the precursor for all swordswomen films to come and King Hu's most influential film done at Shaw Brothers. Yueh's character from "Come Drink With Me" is still considered the classic.

During the 1960's and 1970's he averaged starring in five films per year with all the Shaw's main leading actresses in mostly classic martial art films, such as Chin Ping's "Killer Darts", Cheng Pei Pei's "Lady of Steel" and "The Shadow Whip" and in Taiwan's kung-fu queen Shih Szu's "The Young Avenger" and "The Villains". He topped off his career with a final appearence in Jackie Chan's "Rumble in the Bronx". A filmcareer that spanned more than 30 years with over 90 films.

Yueh and his wife Tanny Tien Ni live in Canada. Lately he became the chairman of the association of preforming artists in Canada. (IVL)
