                             Terence Yin characterizes the new breed of Asian-American actors who are making a splash

                               in Hong Kong. Yin shares the same management (JC Group) with Daniel Wu, Maggie Q  

                             and Edison Chen. His peers (who also include Stephen Fung, Lee Ann, Amanda Strang 

                                and Jaymee Ong) have more than their Western upbringing in common- they're frequent 

                            co-stars and personal friends. Unlike the others, Yin has developed a knack for playing villains 

                               in a string of youth oriented HK pictures. Terence has a distinct genetic connection to HK

                            cinema as well. His mother is 60's Eurasian actress Jenny Hu, and his father is former Shaw 

                               Brothers director Kang Wei. After retirement, the two migrated to California where Terence 

                                                                                         was raised.

 

                             Terence made his film debut in Yonfan's gay drama Bishonen (1998). Yin's work has included 

                                 drama, action and triad genre roles, almost all supporting. His first starring credit was in

                                  Jamie Luk's 2000 romance Home Sweet Home, followed by lead roles in triad films 

                                  Gold Fingers and Mist in Judge, opposite Ti Lung. Terence released his first album,

                                                                  Determination, in 2000, and took modeling jobs. 

                                  As his career took shape, a few of his films were set in Japan or featured Japanese cast 

                                  members- (Final Romance, Bullets of Love, and Color of Pain). Yin has deliberately 

                                 developed a Japanese following, co-starring in two of Takashi Miike's movies- City of Lost 

                                                                          Souls and Dead or Alive Final. 

                                  

                                     In 2003 Terence Yin played Simon Yam's younger brother in Paramount's summer 

                              blockbuster Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. He co-stars in Jackie Chan's 

                                                                    New Police Story as yet another villain.
