Fan Siu Wong
(Terry Fan, Louis Fan)
Born: June 19, 1973- Hong Kong Hobbies: Singing, guitar
The son of actor Fan Mui Sang, Fan Siu Wong first appeared in the movies when he
was just a baby. In the opening scene of Amsterdam Connection, little Fan is visible
in the arms of his screen dad Jason Pai Piao. His real father also starred in the
film, but he didn't have to push his son into acting- it was Fan's lifelong goal.
After a short stint as a child actor, including roles as precocious youngsters in
Goodbye Mammie and Righting Wrongs, Fan's father sent him to study martial arts
in Shangdong, China at the age of 14. During those years of training he forged his
muscular physique and became an agile kung fu expert. Scenes of Fan Siu Wong
performing Wu Shu can be seen in the film Dragons of the Orient.
When he returned to Hong Kong, Fan was cast as the star of Stanley Tong's directorial
debut, Stone Age Warriors, an action-adventure filmed in the jungles of New Guinea.
Still only a teenager, he then played the lead in what would become his signature film,
Story of Ricky (1991). The ultra-violent prison flick based on a Japanese manga
became a worldwide cult favorite.
Signing on with Danny Lee's production company, Fan Siu Wong appeared in a number
of Lee's police films. However, these were mostly only supporting roles, and even
his role in Stanley Tong's Supercop spinoff Project S made only minimal use of his
talents.Though Fan did star in some additional low budget actioners, he found greater
success in television, where he was spent most of the 1990's filming martial arts
serials at TVB.
In 1999 Fan Siu Wong began making his big screen comeback by making some
cheap action movies in the Philippines. Fan also demonstrated martial arts at Cannes
in 2001 and acted with Sammo Hung in Flying Dragon, Leaping Tiger. Though he
still works steadily, most everything Fan stars in is shot on video and not released
