#1

Well I know if I said actor and actress no one would put down actors!



1: Simon Yam One of my favorite actors period

2: Sonny Chiba Baddest of Badasses

3: Chow Yun Fat Great in action or comedy

4: Takashi Shimura The real star of 7 samurai

5: Tony Leung Award winning actor



Haven’t seen enough of Mifune to put on the list.



Honorable mentions Kitano, Dean Shek, Tse

;D



Shinichi Chiba - He alone can make a film worth a watch

Eiji Go - Always as much fun

Richard Ng – The funniest man in Asia

Anthony Wong - The king of Cat III

Yusaku Matsuda – Has received too little acclaim outside Japan



Strangely that list doesn’t even reflect my taste that well. None of those actors appear in any of my top 10 favourite asian movies

Richard Ng Man-tat ?


#4

Yiu-hon



I didn’t know there were two of them.



a few weeks ago I watched Magnificent Warriors. After some time I started wondering where’s Richard, and excatly 7 second later he shows up (anyne who’s seen the film and remembers how he enters the film can understand the extra irony here)
