RIP Shing Fui-On

Posted by Josh Samford On August - 28 - 2009

Shing Fui-OnSad news in the Hong Kong film world everybody. Veteran character actor Shing Fui-On has passed on, succumbing to nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Born in 1955 and discovered as a laborer on a film set, he was picked out by the director due to his menacing grimace. This same grimace and stare would lead him to roles in 164 films according to the IMDB. Genre fans will best recognize him for his work in films such as The Untold Story, Cheetah on Fire, the God of Gamblers series, Tragic Heroes and of course John Woo’s The Killer. The man was charismatic and always left an impression in any of his roles, he will be sorely missed by Western audiences as much as he will those in the East. Rest in Peace Shing Fui-On.
