Getting Near the End of the Photo Road

I have a bit of a cold and am too tired to write much about these folks. You should know them all - Sibelle Hu was initially marketed as a demure beauty before she found success in a number of Girls with Guns films, Simon Yam is the coolest person in HK, Stephen Chow - do another silly film like Love on Delivery please and stop feeling the need to make "important" films all the time, Takeshi Kaneshiro - he has come up greatly in my ratings compared to the new crop of male actors - used to think he was just a pretty boy and he is but he can actually act, Teresa Cheung and Kenny Bee found love in the space between her cleavage but her aborted career went bust so to speak and a few of Big Tony, maybe the most versatile actor in HK?

Big Tony is versatile in his choice of roles maybe but not so sure about his versatility in acting anymore: watch him in The Drummer and Lost in Beijing where he's just shouting most of the time.

He did do multiple genres in the past, so I respect that.

This is a guy who did all sorts of roles back in the 80's/90's and I think he was good at all of them. Something as nitwitty silly as the gigolo in Boys Are Easy or comic suave as in 92 Legendary La Rose Noire or romantic in A Roof with a View or evil as in Touch of Evil or just simply amazing in Jiang Hu: The Triad Zone. His characters were all over the map from zany to stoic and I always think he did a great job. Back then many of the actors were expected to do all sorts of roles - look at Chow Yun Fat and all the silly comedies he did - but I don't think any of them came close to doing the variety that Big Tony did.

Thanks for some great rare pics of Sing-jai! I especially love the one with Cutie Mui Siu-wai in the back ground...
