Law Kar-ying (Chinese: 羅家英; pinyin: Luó Jiāyīng; born August 27, 1946 in Shunde, Guangdong, China) is a Hong Kong-based actor. He was originally a Cantonese Opera artiste. In 1990 he turned to acting in movies. He became popular after being cast in From Beijing with Love, which also starred Stephen Chow, as Da Vinci, an inventor whose list of (useless) gadgets include a solar-powered torch.

In 1990s, Law played Wong Yat-fei in his first movie debut in 1993 film Crime Story along with Jackie Chan. In 1994 he was cast in Jeff Lau's film duology A Chinese Odyssey, where he played the verbose Longevity Monk (Xuanzang), singing a Cantonese cover of "Only You (And You Alone)" midway during the film.

Law has rarely acted in television, especially on his wife, Liza Wang's television station TVB. He is most known for cooperating with ATV, which is TVB's rival.

In 2009, Law married longtime partner Liza Wang in Las Vegas. They announced their union on TVB through Stephen Chow.
