Chinese Martial Arts Film specialist, Liu Chia-Hui launched his acting career as a stunt man before transitioning to become a martial arts instructor. Lui made his acting debut with a supporting role in feature film ‘Shaolin Martial Arts’. The film ‘The 36th Chamber of Shaolin’ brought him mass recognition and further acting roles in several Kung Fu movies. Lui portrayed himself as the ‘Kung-Fu Monk’.
Quentin Tarantino's most popular production ‘Kill Bill’ saw Lui play two leading roles. One as the bald kato-masked bodyguard, Johnny Mo, and another as the cruel, white haired and powerful Kung-Fu Master, Pai Mei. He was the only actor to appear in both ‘Kill Bill’ movies playing different characters.
In 2008, Liu career took a new direction when he ventured into Indian Bollywood films to star in the popular blockbuster production ‘Chandni Chowk to China’. Co-starring alongside Bollywood royalty Akshay Kumar, his successive appearance marked his debut into Hindi films. His proved triumph, gained him an opportunity to shoot on location at the Great Wall of China and he was able to share his talent at China’s most recognised cultural landmark.
