                                                  Candice Yu On On is an actress best associated with the 1970's.

                                     Yu was a Shaw Brothers regular who mostly performed in romances and martial arts 

                                         films. From 1977-1979, the fresh faced ingénue co-starred in six of Chu Yuan's 

                                   swordplay/martial arts pictures- Death Duel, The Sentimental Swordsman, Legend 

                                        of the Bat, Murder Plot, and the two Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre films.


                                   Her co-star in several of these and other Shaw films was Derek Yee Tung Sing, whom 

                                      she dated for 8 years. The two starred in the tragic romance Young Lovers in 1979.

                                 short-lived. After the mid 1980's, she retired and became a wife, mother of two, and socialite.

                                 In 1992, she came out of retirement to perform in Swordsman 2 with Brigitte Lin, in a role

                                    which echoed the lesbianism in her 1984 film, Lust For Love of a Chinese Courtesan

                                      Although she had launched a successful side career as a singer, Candy did not make 

                                                                          any more films for over a decade.


                                    After her second divorce, Candice Yu marked her 2nd comeback in Wong Jing's 2003

                                         caper Spy Dad, playing Tony Leung Ka Fai's wife and Gillian Chung's mother.
