    Default TVB Jin Yong actors

    Hi everyone

    After watching XAJH 95 on Astro (which ended last week, and which I rather enjoyed despite the modifications here and there), a thought came to my mind. As we lament, or celebrate (depending on your point of view) the end of TVB's Jin Yong serials, I thought about the old guard of TVB, some of whom still served until the last serials HSDS and Crimson Sabre 2000. I thought I'd compile a list of TVB actors who played plot characters. By plot characters I mean characters who were integral to the plot of a story, as I'm sure if we didn't make this distinction some extra who acted as a soldier would win the honour (not that he wouldn't deserve it, but for the purposes of this thread I'm looking at people we can remember, fondly or otherwise).

    Using only those JY serials I know of (main book titles only, meaning that spin-offs from the Condor Trilogy and Duguqiubai, and renames like One Sword will not count, while the entire LOCH 82 trilogy counts as one serial, although ROCH will count separately even if the character is the same), and picking a handful of actors by memory (who I think have a pretty good chance of topping the list), here goes...

    Years of serials are approximate as I can't remember the exact years...

    Kwan Hoi San - 9
    Mr Lu - B&S 79
    Zhang Sanfeng-HSDS 79
    Murong Bo - DGSD 81
    Lu Chengfeng-LOCH 82
    Lin Zhennan - XAJH 85
    Aobai - DOMD 86
    Hu Qingniu - HSDS 86
    Ling Tuisi - LCJ 88
    Bai Zizai - XKX 89

    Kenneth Chun Kong - 8
    Huang Yaoshi - LOCH 82
    Huang Yaoshi - ROCH 84
    Yue Buqun - XAJH 85
    Yuan Chonghuan - BXJ 85
    Chen Zhennan - DOMD 86
    Xie Xun - HSDS 86
    Tian Guinong - FF 88
    Ding Dian - LCJ 88
    I also seem to recall him playing some Khitan royalty in DGSD 81, but I can't remember, so I didn't count it.

    Lau Siu Ming - 6
    Duan Yanqing - DGSD 81
    Yideng - LOCH 82
    Yideng - ROCH 84
    Ren Woxing - XAJH 85
    Hai Dafu - DOMD 86
    He also acted in B&S 89, but I can't remember which character...

    Lau Dan - 10
    Hong Qigong - LOCH 82
    Hong Qigong - ROCH 84
    Tian Boguang - XAJH 85
    Wu Sangui - DOMD 86
    He Taichong - HSDS 86
    Hong Qigong - LOCH 94
    Hong Qigong - ROCH 96
    Ma Dayuan - DGSD 97
    Huang Taiji - BXJ 00
    Yuyang Wang - HSDS 00

    Chu Tit Woh - 8
    Guo Shaotian - LOCH 82
    Bai Guishou - HSDS 86
    Li Zicheng - DOMD 86
    Xuedao Laozu - LCJ 88
    Shi Qing - XKX 89
    Ouyang Feng - LOCH 94
    Ouyang Feng - ROCH 94
    Lin Zhennan - XAJH 95

    Yeung Chak Lam - 5
    Yelu Hongji - DGSD 81
    Ouyang Feng - LOCH 82
    Ouyang Feng - ROCH 84
    Zuo Lengchan - XAJH 85
    Some Heaven and Earth society chap, swore brotherhood with Shuang Er then got killed - DOMD 86

    Wong Wai - 4
    Wanyan Honglie - LOCH 94
    Yue Buqun - XAJH 95
    Yelu Hongji - DGSD 97
    Chongzhen - BXJ 00

    Cheong Ying Choy - 8
    Yu Daiyan - HSDS 79
    Duan Zhengming - DGSD 81
    Ma Yu - LOCH 82
    Ma Yu - ROCH 84
    Chongzhen - BXJ 85
    Some comedic monk who tried to teach Wei Xiaobao Yiyangzi - DOMD 86
    I think he was one of the 3 Kong monks in HSDS 86, but I might be wrong, so I'm discounting it.
    Fang Zheng - XAJH 95
    Yellow-Brow Monk - DGSD 97

    Lok Ying Kwan - 7
    Yu Changhai - XAJH 85
    The head of the Dragon Head company - HSDS 86
    I seem to recall him as some eunuch in DOMD or BXJ, but can't remember - discounting it
    Huang Yaoshi - LOCH 94
    Huang Yaoshi - ROCH 96
    Murong Bo - DGSD 97
    Xie Xun - HSDS 00
    Li Zicheng - BXJ 00

    Lau Kong - 9
    Wanyan Honglie - LOCH 82
    Feng Qingyang - XAJH 85
    Cheng Kun - HSDS 86
    Emperor Shunzhi - DOMD 86
    Genghis Khan - LOCH 94
    Xiang Wentian - XAJH 95
    Wu Santong - ROCH 96
    Xuan Ci - DGSD 97
    4th Wen brother - BXJ 00

    Some chap whose name I don't know, but I see him a lot - 7
    Lu Youjiao - LOCH 82
    Qi Changfa - LCJ 88
    Wanyan Honglie's brother - LOCH 94
    Yu Changhai - XAJH 95
    Xiao Shuangzi - ROCH 96
    Buping Priest - DGSD 97
    5th Wen brother - BXJ 00


    Phew.. some of them obviously didn't act in as many as I thought.. the winner in my first list is Lau Dan (helped immensely by two dual-roles of Hong Qigong, as well as some amazing stamina to see him still act regularly in 2000), beating even the venerable Kwai Hoi San and Cheong Ying Choy and the charismatic Chun Kong, who I felt for a time appeared in every TVB serial.

    My memory of LCJ, FF88 and B&S 89 is quite bad, though, so I might have missed some roles these gentlemen played in those serials. I haven't even watched the late 90s FF starring Sunny Chan either, so please feel free to add to the list to find out who the real JY champion is. If there's anyone else worth mentioning, do give them due recognition in this thread as well.

    I also have this mental picture of him as a very young Taoist priest of either Wudang or Quanzhen pedigree, but I can't place it.... probably as Li Zhichang or one of Yin Zhiping's other martial arts brothers in ROCH 84, but we'll keep him at 8 for now..

    Chalk up another 2 for Lok Ying Kwan.. he was in both DOMD and BXJ. He played a eunuch in BXJ and a guy following WXB around in DOMD...

    Ian, I believe he was one of Yin Zhiping's martial bothers in ROCH 84... so, does that put him at 11?

    I just remembered, he was in Flying Fox of Snowy Mountain 85 also, he played Shing Jun, the King of Poison's martial brother...

    Default You forgot to add Bau Fong to the list.

    Bau Fong acted in quite a few Jin Yong's remakes. In fact, he played a small role in SOD '96.

    Hmm.. Bao Fong

    Zhang Sanfeng - HSDS 86
    Feng Qingyang - XAJH 96
    Sweeper Monk - DGSD 97
    Ummm...

    Any others?

    I believe it does (12, rather)! Wow.. we have a tentative new champion...


    Another one who comes to mind:-

    Chun Wong - 10

    Zhou Botong - LOCH 82
    Zhou Botong - ROCH 94
    Mu Gaofeng - XAJH 85
    Some weird chap - BXJ 85
    Mao 18 - DOMD 86
    Zhou Dian - HSDS 86
    Crocodile God - DGSD 97
    Eldest Huasan disciple - BXJ 00
    Shi Huolong - HSDS 00
    fake Shi Huolong - HSDS 00 (cheap shot, but it is a separate character)

    Umm...Wasn't Chun Wong ...Mao 18 in DOMD98? I didn't know he played the same character in the 85 version. And It wasn't him who played Zhou Bo Tong in ROCH94, it was Wayne Lai, the one you're thinking is ROCH84.

    Oo ya, typo, I meant 84

    And I completely forgot there was a DOMD 98.. if he's Mao 18 as well (he was definitely Mao 18 in DOMD 86) then he moves up to 11 to tie with Lok Ying Kwan!

    Xu Zhu - DGSD 81

    Wu Yidao - FF 99
    Wong Yan Choy wasn't Wu Yazi in DGSD 97 - it was that chap, dunno his name, the one who normally plays slimy villains, the only character I can think of now is Adam Cheng's policeman friend in Cold Blood Warm Heart. Wong was Wuyazi (different 'ya', tooth, rather than cliff) in Legendary Siblings starring Tony Leung and Hugo Ng, though. He does have a few more, however...

    Fu An Kang - FF 88
    Yang Xiao - HSDS 79
    Song Yuanqiao - HSDS 86

    which brings him to 4 including Ouyang Ke.

    Felix was also Xiao Yuanshan in DGSD 97, which brings him to 6.


    This is fun, and nostalgic....

    I just noticed - everyone we have named so far is male - how about females? I'm really struggling here, as either female supporting actresses are not so famous in terms of names, or JY stories have very few female supporting characters.

    Pak Yan - 3
    Wei Xiaobao's mother - DOMD 86
    Ling Zhongce - XAJH 85
    Yu Xingzhu - DGSD 81

    Rebecca Chan - 3
    Cheng Youjia - LOCH 82
    He Tieshou - BXJ 85
    Mrs Tian - FF88

    Law Lan - 4
    Qiu Qianci - ROCH 84
    Wei Xiaobao's landlady - DOMD 86
    Qiu Qianci - ROCH 94
    Ding Yi - XAJH 95

    Carmen Lee - 3
    Wang Yuyan - DGSD 97
    Wang Aluo - DGSD 97
    Xiao Longnu - ROCH 94

    Lisa Wang - 2
    Zhao Ming - HSDS 79
    Huo Qingtong - B&S 79

    Idy Chan - 3
    Xiao Zhao - HSDS 79
    Xiao Longnu - ROCH 84
    Wang Yuyan - DGSD 81

    Shangguan Yu -4
    Mie Jue - HSDS 79
    Min Rou - XKX 89
    Mrs Zheng (Taiwanese Empress Dowager)- DOMD 86
    Mrs Wu San Tong - ROCH 84


    From my preliminary guesses, Shangguan Yu and Law Lan lead the pack with 4, although I can't believe Law Lan only acted in 4 JY serials all these years...

    Law Lan was also Wen Yi's mother in BXJ 00, so she moves to 5.

    Did TVB make any Jin Yong serial between 90-94? There seems to be an awfully long gap there... or were they recovering from the loss of the talent of the 80s?

    Yip Tin Hang (I think that's his name) - 7
    I *think* he was some Khitan in DGSD 81, but I'll leave it out pending confimation.
    Wanyan Honglie's brother - LOCH 82
    Kublai Khan - ROCH 84
    Non-Abstaining Monk - XAJH 85
    Wu Lie - HSDS 86
    Feng Shifan - DOMD 86
    Yan Daping - LCJ 88
    Sky Demon - XKX 89 (the character doesn't actually exist in the story, but is made up by TVB, though)

    Ko Hung - 3
    Wanyan Honglie's bodyguard - LOCH 82
    Feng Mofeng - ROCH 84
    Jue Yuan - HSDS 86

    Lee Kok Lun - 4
    Tan Chuduan - LOCH 82
    Feng Mofeng - ROCH 96
    Jiu Mozhi - DGSD 97
    Yu Daiyan - HSDS 00

    Cheong Lui - 4
    Jiu Mozhi - DGSD 81
    Jie Bie - LOCH 82
    Golden Wheel Monk - ROCH 84
    Yin Yewang - HSDS 86

    Lei Hoi Sang - 7
    Bao Xiang - LCJ 88
    Evil Beggar Elder - LOCH 94
    Zhong Zhen - XAJH 95
    Dali monk - ROCH 96
    Xuan Tong - DGSD 97
    Beggar Clan head - BXJ 00
    Tang Wenliang - HSDS 00 (I think he called himself Tang, anyway)

    The chap who I can't figure out (XAJH 95's Yu Changhai) also played one of the Du monks in HSDS 86, and moves to 9.

    Sorry, my error there. His name was Wei Wuya, not Wu Yazi..

    Idy Chan was also Wong Yung in a 1988 Taiwan version of LOCH. So that puts her at 4.
