Chow Yun-fat

Chow Yun-fat was born on May 18, 1955, on Lamma Island, in Hong Kong, China. His nicknames include Fat Tsai or Fatt Korr(as in Big Brother). He is 6'1'', and therefore considered to be taller than most Chinese standards. He got his first taste of fame by doing movies with HK(Hong Kong) director John Woo.

Trade mark:
In his movies with John Woo, he is often seen with a toothpick in his mouth, and can also be seen with dark shades on and twin guns(usually 2 Beretta .92s) during a gunfight.

Turned down the role of Morpheus in the 1999 movie The Matrix
Before going to work on a movie set each day, he goes to the nearest market to buy fresh fruit
Considered unusually tall by Chinese standards, he often stands a whole head taller than most of his Chinese co-stars male or female
Tri-lingual, can speak Mandarin, Cantonese and English
In his earlier films, especially ones in the Philippines, he was credited as Chow Anderson
Attempted suicide over the break up of 5 year relationship with TV star Idy Chan
Since his elder sister is a photographer, he enjoys photography.
