"In the West, audiences think I am a stereotyped action star, or that I always play hitmen or killers. But in Hong Kong, I did a lot of comedy, many dramatic films, and most of all, romantic roles, lots of love stories. I was like a romance novel hero."

Chow Yun-fat (born May 18, 1955) is an actor and a native of Hong Kong. He came to that attention of Eastern audiences for his role in Heroic Bloodshed movies by director John Woo. He came to the attention of Western audiences after his role in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

He frequently played honorable badasses in Asia, but is unfortunately typecast into stereotypically "Asian" roles in Hollywood films.
