Datuk (Dr) ACP (K) Md. Yusof bin Md. Haslam (born 24 April 1954), better known by his stage name Yusof Haslam, is a Malaysian actor, filmmaker, director, producer.[1] His film production are mainly focus on the world of police, such as the TV series Gerak Khas and Roda-Roda Kuala Lumpur, the former spurring three feature films. The immense popularity of his films had led him to be nicknamed the "Six Million Dollar Man".

His legacy in entertainment showbiz is now carried by his two sons, Syamsul and Syafiq. Yusof also has his own film production company, Skop Productions where he served as the Managing Director.

Early life and film career[edit]

Yusof was born on April 24, 1954 in Jalan Pahang, Kuala Lumpur to housewife Bahyah Talib and lorry driver Md. Haslam Khan. He is a fourth child from among seven siblings who together lived in a house in the squatter settlement.[2] He received his education at the SMK Aminuddin Baki in Kuala Lumpur.

He became enamoured with movies through his experiences seeing Hollywood westerns and Bollywood films—with the latter, he considered one of the stars Shashi Kapoor as his acting idol. Yusof thus decided that he would become an actor, much to objections by his father who believed that the entertainment scene held no future prospects.[2]

Yusof took up profession as a bus conductor, but he also secretly attended acting auditions. He began his involvement in acting by playing an extra character in Laksamana Do Re Mi in 1970, as the guard of the Minister of Fasola. It would only be until in 1975 that he would take a leading main role through the film Permintaan Terakhir.[2]

Directing career[edit]

He began directing films in 1991 with Bayangan Maut, a mystery action thriller film starring rock singer Ella. This was later followed by Pemburu Bayang in 1992, Sembilu in 1994, best-selling blockbuster film, Maria Mariana in 1996 plus its sequel two years after among others.

Apart from film and television, he is also a managing director of his production company, Skop Productions which he had established since 1985. The company has four subsidiaries - Haslam Trading (restaurant), Haslam Properties (real estate and properties), Skop Publishing (print publications) and ME Communications (post-production facilities).

He was awarded the Ahli Mangku Negara in 1993 and the Panglima Jasa Negara in 2001, which carries the title of Dato', for his contributions to Malaysian cinema.

Personal life[edit]

Yusof married twice. His first marriage was with Raja Noor Saadah Salehuddin in 1978 and divorced in 1980, they have no children. He later married Fatimah Ismail in 1982. They have four children namely Faizal, Syamsul, Shamin and Syafiq. Syamsul and Syafiq themselves are also actor and film directors.
