Biography by Jonathan E. Laxamana

Yuen Biao is most known for his collaboration with Hong Kong action superstar Jackie Chan. Together with actor, director, and stunt coordinator Sammo Hung, the comedic trio have starred in many slapstick-martial arts films, including Project A (1983), My Lucky Stars (1985), and Dragons Forever (1988). All three appeared in small roles in the martial arts classic Enter the Dragon (1973). The three were trained from a young age at the Peking Opera Academy, where they were subjected to harsh training at the hands of their master; this story was retold in the 1988 film Painted Faces. Offscreen, Biao is the least known of the three; although he is popular among genre fans, he lacks the star power of Chan and the directorial skills of Hung. However, his acting abilities are impressive, and he has appeared in over 50 films.
