Another former Dancer (ballet), she was the Top Female Actress (in the action-department) at Shaw Bros' studios in early '70's. At age 16, she moved into the dormitory on Shaw Bros' lot with her mother after winning an Open Audition, for new talent in 1969. It wasn't uncommon for her to be working on (3) movies simultaneously and grabbing a few hours of sleep on the set (talk about Child-labor laws).
This ageless beauty, was being groomed to take the place of Cheng Pei-Pei, who was getting married and leaving the business. She, too, is more of a Swordswomen, than a Kung-fu star, as most of their movies dealt with more Swordplay than "Unarmed Combat". Displaying both style and grace, she was quite the swordswoman (though to me, not as polished as Cheng Pei-Pei).
Her performances still had professionalism written all over them. Some of her best work in film has been Young Avenger, Lady Hermit, and Lady Of The Law. I enjoyed her in The Rescue with Lo Lieh and Thunderbolt Fist, where she had to help train Chuan Yuan for combat against Nan Kung-Hsun. She's done so quality work for the studio, but, like most growing females, she longed to make her mark in serious dramas, with the likes of Brigette Lin and Lin Feng-Chaio.
