Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild - Directors - Tin Hang Stephen YIP
葉天行 | YIP Tin Hang Stephen

I have been in this business for a few decades. I switched from acting to directing because I worried that acting may not provide a steady income, and as a director, I feared having to pitch my ideas to investors. So I became selfemployed and produced many films through my company.

When the film market in Hong Kong and overseas shrunk, I made tele-features. When Hong Kong film lost its direction, I switched to the food and beverage industry and taught art. Now I have found a new direction, which reignited my passion for directing. In the past few years, I have been shuttling between provinces in China. Once you fall in love with film, it’s hard to let go.

When I retire, I’ll open a gallery-restaurant where old friends of mine can gather and reminisce about the past.


Stephen Yip Tin-hang is a Hong Kong actor and director. He was a graduate of the first actors training course held by Shaw Brothers and TVB. He started out as a martial arts actor and signed with Chang Cheh’s Chang’s Film Productions as an actor, performed in many of the company’s Taiwan productions such as Five Shaolin Masters (1974), Shaolin Martial Arts (1974), Disciples of Shaolin (1975) and Seven Man Army (1976), among others. Yip later found work as an actor at Commercial Television, ATV and TVB. In his acting career, Yip was cast mainly in villainous roles. Yip left TVB in 1986 to focus on films.

Yip wrote and directed his first film, Missing Man, in 1989, which starred Alex Man Tze-leung, Joey Wong, and Carrie Ng. Aside from directing, Yip has also been active as a screenwriter, producer, line producer and executive producer.
