Bolo Yeung in character as Chong Li - in a scene from the classic Martial Arts movie - Bloodsport(1988).

 

Bolo Yeung - Brief biography by Luke Brown - Last Update: 25/7/21

- "I know what is good for me as an actor. Because of the way I look, that is what I am going to be a success in. I know my place in movies; no matter how good an actor is, if he doesn't know his place in the movies he will never be successful." - Bolo Yeung

- "Why do we always defend? Tai Chi never actively attacks. The art of war says "Retreating when the enemy advances". - Bolo Yeung

The powerful Yang Sze was born on the 3rd of July 1946 in Guangzhou, Guangdong. As a young boy he became interested in Martial Arts, and studied under various teacher's. Becoming a big devotee of Tai Chi, which he continues to practice to this day. Yang Sze would also later develop a strong interest in both Bodybuilding and Power lifting. His best deadlift was over 700lbs. In his late teen's, he moved to Hong Kong in search of a better life. Winning the Mr Hong Kong title multiple times during the 1970s, along with being crowned I.F.B.B Mr Asia in 1975.

After earning a living as a personal trainer during the late 1960's. He used his muscular talents to make a living in the film business. Where his impressive looking physique helped him to get movie roles, playing mostly thugs and heavies. In the Shaw Brothers productions of the late 1960's to the early 1970's. The famous studio had seen media coverage of Yang Sze's first Bodybuilding compitition, and offered him an audition. He would go onto work with Chang Cheh and appearing alongside Shaw Brother's icons David Chiang & Ti Lung, in The Heroic One's(1970), Deadly Duo(1971) and Angry Guest(1972) to name just a few. He also had a substantial role in the 1972 Chen Kuen-Tai movie Man of Iron. Not forgetting the iconic Walter Chang-Chung-Hwa directed King Boxer(1972) a.k.a Five Fingers of Death, that starred Lo Lieh. The first ever Martial Art movie to have global success at the box-office.

Quote

One of the biggest movies of the year as well as one of the directors biggest spectacles of his career was the enormous and expensive production of THE HEROIC ONES (1970). A very famous film in Asia, it's still remembered today. It's distinguished for several reasons one of them being the bloated budget of HK2.5million. Unheard of at the time, a gala exhibit showcasing the many props, costumes and even severed body parts and blood jelly used in the film were showcased. Not only that, but a documentary detailing the arduous production was also part of the show. In another bit of movie mogul magic, Shaw Brothers had a 'Heroic Ones' basketball game between the Shaws stable of stars involved in Cheh's picture and the camp at TVB several days before the films release.

When the late Bruce Lee turned down appearing in a Winston's Cigar commercial. His Game of Death co-star, Karateka and former Mr Taiwan Chieh Yuen, informed him of a possible replacement. Yuen suggested that Winston's should contact his friend and then current Mr Hong Kong, Yang Sze. Mr Lee personally called the young bodybuilder turned actor, and offered him the job. Around the same time Bruce Lee had just started production on his planned fourth movie, titled Game Of Death. Mysteries still surround the possible casting of Bolo in Game of Death and another un-realized Bruce Lee screen project Green Bamboo Warrior.

"Another time Yeung, aka [Bolo] went to see Bruce at Golden Harvest Studios. Bruce was screening a Cassius Clay [Muhammad Ali] documentary. Ali was world heavyweight champion at the time and Bruce saw him as the greatest fighter of them all. The documentary showed Ali in several of his fights. Bruce set up a wide full-length mirror to reflect Ali’s image from the screen. Bruce was looking into the mirror, moving along with Ali.

Bruce’s right hand followed Ali’s right hand, Ali’s left foot followed Bruce’s left foot. Bruce was fighting in Ali’s shoes. “Everybody says I must fight Ali some day.” Bruce said, “I’m studying every move he makes. I’m getting to know how he thinks and moves.” Bruce knew he could never win a fight against Ali. “Look at my hand,” he said. “That’s a little Chinese hand. He’d kill me." Source- Bruce Lee: A Life by Mattew Polly

This Winstons advertisement was filmed at the famous Golden Harvest's Hammer Hill Road studios, in late September 1972.  With Shaw Brothers actor Cheng Lui joining Bolo for filming, on the set of Game of Death. Mr Lee and Mr Yeung would become good friends and training partners. Which would later help Yang Sze land one of his most famous and iconic roles. Giving him one of the biggest breaks, of his movie career to date. When Bruce Lee personally cast him as Han's menancing henchmen Bolo. In the highly sucessful Enter The Dragon(1973), an international co-production between Bruce Lee & Raymond Chow's Concord company and Warner Brother's studios. By the time of his performance in Enter the Dragon, Bolo had built himself up to bodyweight of 195lbs.

Quote

Persons involved in the Winston's TV ads: 1) Bolo Yeung, 2) Chieh Yuen and 3) Cheng Lui. Bruce did not film the TV ad as he initially intended to due to his busy schedule. There are 3 parts which were combined and merged into one. What TV viewers saw was the Bruce’s WOTD trailer being inserted into the TV advert.

"The first time I really met Bruce (..) we were going to have lunch. His car pulled up and in the back seat were Bruce and the reigning Mr Hong Kong (Bolo Yeung), and in the front were Bruce's wife Linda and his secretary. Bruce said “Get in the car,” I say “But there’s no room”, so the secretary gets out, and I get in. I think she’s going to get into Raymond Chow’s car behind us, but she gets back in on my lap!. Then off we go (.. ) - - George Lazenby

After the huge international success of the Enter the Dragon. The young Yang Sze changed his screen name to Bolo Yeung. The first time an actors name has been inspired by a on-screen role they played?. He would go on to appear in countless other Hong Kong/Korean/Taiwanese/Japanese/Fllipino productions, right up to until the mid-1980's. Usually playing a powerful villain, who helped to get the screen hero over with audiences.

Bolo was so popular with audiences in the 1970's, post Enter the Dragon. That one U.S movie distributor picked up the Hong Kong production - Freedom Strikes Blow(1973) starring Chan Wai-Man and re-titled it Chinese Herules. Heavily using Bolo's image for the movies trailer and promotional poster's. A young Jackie Chan also served as the films fight choreogprapher. Staging the epic final showdown bettween Chan Wai-Man's stoic hero and Bolo's unstoppable killer for hire.

Some filmakers/producer's would even splice existing Bolo Yeung film footage, into new productions. Just so they could add Bolo's name to the cast list, movie poster or VHS cover. During the late 70's,he directed & choreographed two very contrasting production's of his own, Bolo(1979) & Writing Kung Fu(1979). In his directorial debut, the self titled Bolo(1979), he co-starred alongside actor and Martial Artist Jason Pai Paio. The pair also shared action director duties on this quirky comedy Kung Fu production. Writing Kung Fu was a much darker, serious and brooding movie. That was a stark contrast, to the many Kung Fu comedies that were popular with audiences at the time. Co-starring with long time friend John Cheung, the pair would later appear together in Little Master(1979) and in Double Impact(1991).

Quote

He’s this great screen presence, and he can move, he’s a serious Tai Chi guy and was a real life bodyguard in the 70’s etc, and he can make so much work with just a few words, but I do think he made a great villain more often than as a hero. - Mike Leeder

Spending most of the 1980's making cameos, in mostly family friendly Hong Kong comedies. In 1986 Mr Yeung was approached to act in the Ronny Yu directed Legacy of Rage(1986), starring the late Brandon Lee. In his one and only Hong Kong movie appearance. The powerful actor landed another major role opposite Belgium born Martial Artist/Bodybuilder and business man turned actor, Jean-Claude Van Damme. Playing the crazed-lead villain Chong Li, in the mixed Martial Arts classic and box-office smash-hit Bloodsport(1988). Co-written by long term Van Damme collaborator Sheldon Lettich.

Bolo & Van Damme formed a quick friendship on the Bloodsport set. With the pair starring opposite each other for a second time. In the Sheldon Lettich(LionHeart) directed Double Impact(1991). His two classic roles opposite Jean-Claude Van Damme helped him to make the transition from Asian to American cinema. In 1989 Mr Yeung was cast in another underground tournament film. The Yasuaki Kurata & Tokuno Hiroaki produced Martial Arts classic Bloodfight(1989). A Japanese feature that starred Mr Kurata, Meg Lam Kin-Ming and Simon Yam.

Quote

Kurata truly made this an international film. Casting includes Hong Kong stars Bolo Yeung, Meg Lam, and Simon Yam; Filipina-American actress Cristina Lawson; American-born Hong Kong actor John Ladalski and Australian-born Hong Kong actor Stuart Smith. What is even more outstanding is that the entire cast speaks English in the film. We are not talking about dubbed English like the old kung fu films of yore. Rather, they speak English themselves and done well. Source- https://worldfilmgeek.com/2018/03/23/bloodfight-1989/

Quote

6. One of the more memorable death scenes in Double Impact is when Bolo Yeung’s character Moon is electrocuted. Director Sheldon Lettich admitted Moon’s demise was inspired by Oddjob’s electrocution at the hands of James Bond in Goldfinger. -  Source- https://www.bulletproofaction.com/2019/05/29/10-things-you-didnt-know-about-double-impact/

 

By the time of his first full blown American production Breathing Fire(1991). A re-make of Shaolin Deadly Kicks(1977), written and directed by Tan Tao Liang. Mr Yeung moved his family from Hong Kong to Carlifornia, where he continues to reside to this day. The powerful and muscular star would continue to play both heroes and villains, in U.S & some Asian productions. Starring in the two Shootfighter films released in 1993 & 1996. Where he worked with William Zabka(Cobra Kai) John Salvitti(Crystal Hunt), Bill Shaw, & Michael Bernardo.

The shootfighter movies featured an iconic octagonal cage for the tournment fight sequences. The shootfighting style of combat was also very popular in Martial Art's media coverage, during the mid-90's. Bolo would met film maker & Martial Artist Jalal Merhi, while filming the Jean-Claude Van Damme actioner Double Impact(1991) in Hong Kong. This would lead to multiple on-screen collaborations between Merhi and Yeung. He would go onto star alongside Martial Arts sensation Cynthia Rothrock, in both Tiger Claws 1 & 2. Other Merhi/Bolo collaboration's include TC2000(1993). Co-starring alongside Bobbie Phillip's, Billy Blanks, & Matthias Hues and Fearless Tiger(1991).

Quote

Jalal: I met Bolo in Hong Kong while shooting my first film, than we met again on the set of Double Impact. I was impressed with his personality and ability, and who could forget him after Enter the Dragon and Bloodsport. He is the best bad guy.  - Source- https://budomate.com/jalal-merhi-interview/

 

Mr Yeung's last major movie appearance being in the still un-released Jalal Merhi production, Blizhy Boy(2007). Starring MMA star turned actor Cung Le. With his last big screen film appearance, being a cameo in Diamond Cartel(2015). While he appears to be semi-retired in terms of his movie career. He's the chairman of the Hong Kong Gy,m Business Association. Along with being the Team Manager of the Tapei International Bodybuilders Squad.

Bolo still remains physically active today. Spending time with his family and training with his son David Yeung. Who alongside his sister Debra Yeung, is also an established and successful Bodybuilder in his own right. Bolo's third son Jacky Yeung, has also found his own success in the equally competitive world of Judo. Bolo was recently honoured on-screen, in the 2019 Shannon Lee produced, Cine-Max series Warrior. Based on an original idea by the late Bruce Lee, actor Rich Ting plays a gang enforcer aptly named Bolo.

The following filmography, is the most extensive one online that I'm aware of?. A big thank you goes out to the teams over at IMDB.COM & the HKMDB.Com. Who did all the hard work for me. Thanks also goes out to all the very helpful and knowledgable members of this forum. Who also have also made a huge contribution to this brief biography/Filmography.

He competed in powerlifting events so deadlifts, squats and bench/standing presses must have been a big part of his rountine at some point. There's a scene in Double Impact 1991 where he lifts an oil barrel, and he clearly practiced powerlifting techniques by the way he lifts it. He grabs either end of the barrel and does a really neat standting press with it. His technique is flawless, and hes clearly done it many times before making the movie.
