Yam Bing-yee entered Cantonese opera at age 11. Trained under her cousin Yam Kim-fai, she started with small roles, eventually earning the sobriquet "The Queen of Second Lead Actresses". She made her film debut in 1948 and appeared in over 200 films, many of them opera films with historical settings. She has a versatile acting range and often played the second lead role, such as the loyal maid or an ignored cousin. Her representative works include "The Legend of Purple Hairpin" (1959), "The Fairy of Nine Heaven" (1959), "The Funny Thief" and "The Revenge Battle". Yam plays a loyal maid pulling strings secretly between Fong Yim-fun and Yam Kim-fai in "The Merry Phoenix". Using her acrobatic skills, she plays an agile fighting woman in "The Golden Cat", and she is an action heroine in "The Funny Thief", which is her favourite film. "The Revenge Battle" is a showcase of Yam Bing-yee's skill in playing a complex character.Yam will meet the audience after the screening of "The Merry Phoenix". (info.gov.hk)
