Bolo Yeung’s Long Career
Bolo Yeung has had a storied career as an actor and a bodybuilder; however, this career isn’t always widely known since most of his acting roles involve his skills as a martial artist who is off to defeat the good guy. He has often been cast as the villain that the good guy topples in the end. Some of his more familiar villain roles include Enter the Dragon that starred Bruce Lee, Bloodsport that starred Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Double Impact that also starred Jean-Claude. It could be said that Bolo Yeung was the recipient of the main protagonists’ deadly and final blows. As early as 10 years old, Bolo Yeung was already a practicing martial artist as he was educated early in Kung Fu. As he became a teenager, he decided to do bodybuilding, eventually becoming Mr. Hong Kong. As luck would smile upon him, Bolo Yeung met a young Bruce Lee in a set production for a cigarette commercial. Bruce Lee saw potential in him, and he was immediately invited and hired for a role in Bruce Lee’s famous film Enter the Dragon. He would then receive casting jobs and offers. His seeming angry scowl and impressive body build made him a perfect villain.
An interesting fact is that Bolo Yeung’s actual Chinese name is Yang Sze.
