Leung Kar Yan

                                                                         Leung Kar Yan   Bryan Leung Kar Yan 

                                                                                          (Leung Ka Yan, Liang Chia Ren, Bryan Leung)     

                                                                    Actor, Director   


                                         Leung Kar Yan's entry into movies was unorthodox to say the least- he merely

                                       hung around film sets and was offered a part. Even more unusual was his rise to 

                                    leading man in kung fu films despite never having trained in martial arts. He worked with

                                  many of the best martial arts directors of his day, including Chang Cheh, Sammo Hung

                                       and Yuen Woo Ping, before merging into comedy and modern action films in the

                                                      80's and 90's with the likes of Stephen Chow and Danny Lee.


                                       Forming his own production company, Leung Kar Yan became a filmmaker himself.

                                      Though his few directorial efforts have made little impact, his performances in classic          

                                        kung fu movies easily qualify him as one of the most important actors of the genre.
