Chung Fat (born December 2, 1953),a native of Guangdong, is a Hong Kong film actor, choreographer, producer and director. He primarily stars in jiangshi films and martial arts films.

Performing experience[edit]

Chung Fat, member of the Han ethnicity, was a disciple of Madame Fan Kuk-fa of The Spring and Autumn Drama School.

When he was a teenager, he was a Northern Praying Mantis practitioner with Lam Ching-ying, under Madame Fok guidance. He became proficient in a great variety of martial arts weapons and techniques.

Chung Fat debuted very early at the silver screen, shooting "Enter the Dragon" (1973) with Bruce Lee.[1]. Chung stated, "You need thousands of extras, some of which must be at the pinnacle of martial arts, Lam Ching-ying was the fellow with the opportunity when they were hiring extras". Chung Fat played a small role as an island security guard that was hanged in the end.

With that opportunity, he entered in the movies circle, being at the front line more than 30 years, in addition to his jiangshi-themed films. Chung only had three protagonist roles in his career, but instead, he was often cast in supporting or secondary or mainly villain roles. He also has worked as a director, choreographer, and planner.

He had a long-term collaboration with Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung. In the 21st Century his film apparitions had basically fade out, making mainly commercials. However, in 2013 he was invited back to the silver screen by Juno Mak to film his new jiangshi film, "Rigor Mortis"[2][3] and help to fight off those new vampire-zombies.
