Hong Kim Bao's real name is Hong Tam Mao, born in 1952 in a family with artistic traditions in Hong Kong. His maternal grandmother is Qian Ziying - a famous martial arts actress in the early days of Chinese cinema.

At the age of 9, Hong Kim Bao began studying under Master Vu Chiem Nguyen at the Hong Kong Academy of Drama. "I liked fighting in the street when I was young. So my parents sent me to Peking Opera School to learn the art of fighting and acting," he shared.

During the years of studying here, he was the leader of the group of young actors That Tieu Phuc with the stage name Nguyen Long. Later, this group also had the participation of many famous names such as Jackie Chan, Nguyen Biao, Nguyen Hoa.

Hong Kim Bao and Jackie Chan become friends. Intimate and deep bond both on film and in real life, always supporting each other when needed. However, understanding the plight of younger brother Jackie Chan, Hong Kim Bao happily accepted Jackie Chan's decision to quit the role.

"We greeted each other with slightly vulgar words, perhaps, with Jackie Chan, I wouldn't have scolded him," the martial arts star shared.

Fate with cinema and idol Ly Tieu Long

Hearing that, the martial arts star misunderstood that this b.oy was challenging him: "You think I can stand a few seconds on the ring" and the two f.ight.

"My foot hasn't reached Bruce's hip yet, Bruce's foot has already hit my face, he's amazing," Hong Kim Bao recounted.

It is also this misunderstanding that makes Hong Kim Bao understand the true ability of the idol, learn many things and is also the reason why he later appeared in the movie "Dragon Tiger Fighting" by Bruce Lee.

At the age of 16, due to an unfortunate accident, he had to miss school and was bedridden for a long time. This is also the reason why his b.ody gradually became fat.
