Actors Biographies and Filmography
Judy Lee (Chia Ling)
Biography
Another actress from the Fu Shing Opera school, and a classmate of Angela Mao, is Chia Ling, also Known as Judy Lee. Like Angela, she was an exceptionally gifted stage performer, who even performed male martial roles. Her operatic martial endeavours caught the eye of movie star and producer/director Yeung Kwan, who cast her in his production The Avenger, retitled Queen Boxer in the US. The story unfolds where Boxer from Shantung left off. Ma Yung Chen is killed by Boss Pai and his young sister arrives in Shanghai to settle the score. Shot in eighteen days, the picture was a hit due to the breathtaking tour de force performance of Judy Lee in the main role. As Ma's sister, she singlehandedly takes on the might of Boss Pai's Horrendous army of waterfront killers, and on top of that the dreaded Axe Gang. The action, shot in long sweeping takes, is spellbinding. Judy gracefully and mercilessly despatches her enemies and seems to relish the very act of working herself up into a possessed frenzy coming across on screen as totally believeable. Indeed Judy Lee was so good in the role that the movie producer and co-star Yeung Kwan cast her in his next picture, The Escape. Also from Taiwan she has appeared in over 50 films and gives some very dramatic performances. She received the best actress award for her role in the Escape at the Golden Horse Festival( their version of the Oscars). She has retired & lives in Los Angeles with her husband & son, where she runs a travel agency.
