Kung Fu stars as they look today..

Postby pollypolly » Sun Dec 12, 2010 11:04 am

I've always wondered what a lot of our favourite martial arts stars are up to nowadays. Do they have a 'regular' job, are they still famous in Hong Kong & China or have they faded into obscurity and are only hailed as legends by Western fans, are they even still alive?

Below is a selection of photos of some of the stars as they look today ('today' in this sense meaning that the photo was taken during the last few years).

Does anyone else have any recent photos of stars or info that they can share? If so, please post.


[B]DORIS CHEN[/B]

Apparently Doris Chen is now an artist and also runs a small hotel business her town.

[B]CHAN WAI MAN[/B]

Chan Wai Man is still making films today. He is living in Hong Kong and has a son and daughter (a pitbull and also a bear apparently!?)

[B]MOON LEE[/B]

Moon Lee was rocked by a scandal in 2007 after getting divorced from her husband for allegedly having an affair with their godson. I have to admit...she still looks pretty good! You can find more pictures of Moon Lee on her blog: [url]http://blog.sina.com.cn/lisaifeng[/url]

Agreed, these old timers still look good for their age. However, Bruce Liang's wig is fooling no one. It has to the world's most unconvincing syrup ever!

5:10 of this video is the most recent footage of Chi Kuan Chun from 10th Oct this year... he looks at least half his age. Proof proper kung fu training keeps you young!

Yes I did notice. The new (most recent) Polly doesn't change the way I feel about the old (1970's - 80's) Polly. :)

Though the actors features have changed (some more than others) it still wont stop me from popping one of their films in the video player.

Nice photos guys. Yep, Brigitte still looks good and it's no wonder Adam Cheng has a big smile on his face...
