Twitch Puts Your Questions to Yuen Wo Ping and Kara Wai Ying Hung!
In the world of martial arts, few names carry as much weight, respect or experience as Chinese actor/director/fight choreographer extraordinaire Yuen Wo Ping. A regular fixture of Hong Kong Cinema since the 1960s, Yuen has been involved in many of the industry's finest productions, from The Drunken Master and Once Upon A Time In China to Iron Monkey and Kung-Fu Hustle. Recent years have seen him work overseas, bringing his unmistakable action choreography to Hollywood in films like The Matrix and Kill Bill, as well as helping reestablish Chinese Action Cinema on the global stage with Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
Likewise, actress/beauty/martial artiste par excellence Kara Wai Ying Hung stands proudly as one of Hong Kong Cinema's finest action heroines. Wai has starred in well over 100 films since her debut back in the mid-70s, and her resume boasts such genre classics as My Young Auntie and four Brave Archer films. Recent years have seen a resurgence in Wai's career, thanks to her knockout (not action) performance in At The End of Daybreak, for which she won more than half a dozen awards. Since then she has enjoyed prominent action roles in films such as Peter Chan's Wu Xia, Wilson Yip's A Chinese Ghost Story, and is currently filming Juno Mak's Rigor Mortis.
Twitch has landed a one-off opportunity to interview both Yuen Wo Ping and Kara Wai later this week, and we wanted to offer our readership the chance to send in your own questions. Is there anything you've always wanted to ask these pillars of the kung-fu community, but have never had the opportunity? Well, now you do! Simply write your questions in the comments section below before Wednesday 20th June and I will put the best ones to Mr. Yuen and Ms. Wai later this week!
