 Biography

Clarence Fok Yiu-leung was born in 1960 in Hong Kong. After graduating from the School of Design at the Hong Kong Polytechnic, he joined a six-month scriptwriting and directing training course at Redifussion TV and started working at that television station. He switched to TVB in 1978 to work as a director, and was involved in numerous productions including Conflict (1978), Over The Rainbow (1979), The Passenger (1979), The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (1979), The Bund (1980), Five Easy Pieces (1980) and Don’t Look Now (1980), among others.

He made his directorial debut in 1980 with The Man from Vietnam, but the film was not released until 1982. He followed up in 1981 with Job Hunter (1981), starring Danny Chan and Leslie Cheung. Fok was promoted to the position of producer at TVB that year, and was responsible for such series as No One is Innocent (1981). He subsequently sought release from his contract at TVB in order to concentrate on film work.

Fok is known for being quick-witted and hard working. His large body of work includes Iceman Cometh (1989), A Dragon from Russia (1990), Cheap Killers (1998), Century of the Dragon (1999), Queen of Kowloon (2000) and Martial Angels (2001). Among them, Iceman Cometh was one of the first local time travel films, while A Dragon from Russia was the first Hong Kong film to be shot in Moscow. The two stylistically disparate Category 3 films he made, Naked Killer (1992) and Remains of a Woman (1993), became two of his most celebrated works. In addition to directing, he served as the line producer on New Mr. Vampire (1986) and No Compromise (1986), and served for a time as creative director at Johnny Mak Film Production company.

Fok has also made frequent appearances in front of the camera, playing supporting roles in Let’s Make Laugh II (1985), Naughty Boys (1986) and Happy-Go-Lucky (1987). He was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Award at the Hong Kong Film Awards for his portrayal of an effeminate gay man in Let’s Make Laugh II.

Since the year 2000, Fok had focused his career on television work on the Mainland, where he produced such shows as Seven Swordsmen (2005) and Take Care Of You Accompanied By The Lights (2009). In the past few years, he has made a return to filmmaking, and directed Together, a romantic comedy starring Donnie Yen and the action film Special ID. In addition, he produced the mega-budget costume fantasy The Monkey King starring Donnie Yen, which will be released in 2014.
