Added by Andrew Tyson on Aug 16, 2022

Andy Lau

Born: Tai Po, Hong Kong

The most prolific Hong Kong star ever, like many Asian stars Lau performs on the screen as well as behind the microphone. He was the top Box Office Actor for two decades, with his 108 films between 1985 and 2005 pulling in $1.8 billion in Hong Kong dollars. Some of his top roles include in Infernal Affairs, in a role later filled by Matt Damon in the Americanized version, The Departed; and in House of Flying Daggers. On top of this, he is considered one of the top four Cantonese pop stars to ever perform, holding the Guinness World Record for Most Awards Won by a Cantopop Male Artist. Not content to slow down, he has two movies set to be released in 2014, and others in production.


Jackie Chan

Born: Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

The ageless Chan continues to be a major force in Asia as well as across the world, for the most part on the screen. He also dabbles in music – he is a classically trained opera singer, and helped to write and perform the farewell song for the 2008 Summer Olympics. In addition to his talents as an actor and martial artist, Chan has also written and produced films in recent times, with CZ12 being his most recent and one of his most successful films. He is set to have multiple films coming out in 2014, the same year he turns 60.
