Modern Hong Kong Film Stars

While stars like Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Yuen Biao started out as pupils in Peking Opera schools, many of the modern Hong Kong film stars began their careers in television.

Shaw Brothers Studio's television station, TVB, conducted acting and martial arts training programs that fed graduates into TVB television shows upon graduation. Andy Lau, Tony Leung, Stephen Chow, and Ekin Cheng were all TVB alumni.
