                                                                                                               (Lin Wei, David Lam) 



                                  A native of Taiwan, Lam Wai first came to attention in 1984 with his role as the leader 

                                     of a group of Mainland would-be jewel thieves in Johnny Mak's classic Long Arm 

                                     of the Law. He got started in movies with bit part roles at Shaw Brothers studios,

                                      and after establishing himself as a lead actor, he participated in numerous crime, 

                                                       action, and gangster films throughout the 1980's and 90's.   

                                   Many of these roles, such as in Project A II with Jackie Chan, and Royal Warriors 

                                                                    with Michelle Yeoh, were as bad guys.
