 Biography

Siu Sang (1927- 2004) began his film career in the 1950s, when he did subtitles and ushered at cinemas. At age 30, he officially entered filmmaking, working as continuity person, screenwriter and assistant director.

In 1964, Siu directed his first film, The Flying Fox, a Cantonese wuxia film co-directed with Choi Cheong. Siu remained in the Cantonese cinema in the 1960s, directing over 20 films, most of which wuxia pictures. He had collaborated with some of the biggest Cantonese film stars at the time, including Connie Chan, Josephine Siao and Kenneth Tsang. The rise of television led Siu to work at Commercial Television, Rediffusion Television (RTV) and Television Broadcasts (TVB). In television, he was best remembered for producing highly popular wuxia drama series, such as Commercial Television’s The Legend of the Condor Heroes (1976), which spurred a trend of TV adaptations of Louis Cha’s novels. Siu’s best-known work at RTV includes Reincarnated (1979), Dragon Strikes (1979) and Dynasty (1980).

The 1980s was the peak of Siu’s career, when he worked for TVB, for which he continued to adapt Louis Cha novels into drama series, including The Demi-Gods & Semi-Devils (1982) and The Return of the Condor Heroes (1983), both with terrific ratings. In the 1990s, he joined Asia Television Limited (ATV), where he went on to produce drama series. Having worked in television for over forty years, Siu was credited with the discovery of many stars, including Andy Lau, Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Michael Miu, Felix Wong, Kent Tong, Leslie Cheung, Michelle Yim, Alex Man, Leon Lai, Ekin Cheng, Adia Chan, among others.
