Born in 10 July 1965, Amy Yip Chi-mai waited until she reached 22 before signing a contract with the Golden Harvest, and fed to a generation of male audiences the wildest fantasies. With generous assets, akin to Jayne Mansfield or Pamela Anderson, Yip took part in many productions and most of the time was cast as a supporting role in films that desperately needed not only comic relief but also erotic relief, if I may say so.
Yip appeared in the excellent The Magnificent Scoundrels (1991, Lee Lik Chi), supporting a drooling Stephen Chow. In addition to her ability to touch moviegoers, in films such as Mortuary Blues (1992, Jeff Lau) or Look Out, Officer ! (1990, Lau Shut Yue), she is also known for her colourful soft porns. Be it in the internationally acclaimed Sex and Zen (1992, Michael Mak), where she was mating in a bath tube with the ubiquitous Elvis Tsui Kam-Kong, or the first instalment of the series Erotic Ghost Story (1990, Nam Nai Choi), Yip has given much pleasure to her partners and to the libidinous viewers. Despite her involvement in even more respectable Category III movies, such as the cult Robotrix (1991, Jamie Luk), Yip also landed some less superficial roles. The most famous one is arguably in To Be Number One (1991, Poon Man-Kit) where she plays the mistress of the rotund Kent Cheng.
After a career totalizing about twenty films and a few magazine centrefolds, Yip got married and retired from the entertainment industry.
