An influential Hong Kong comedian, actor and film director, best known in the west for Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, Stephen Chow Sing-Chi is famous for his slap stick martial arts movies. He also has something of a reputation for taking unknowns as his romantic lead, collectively called "Sing girls", all of whom go on to have successful careers in their own right.
As an actor he has been known to be the lead actor in all of his movies as well as some lead roles in films such as the God of Gamblers sequels and A Chinese Odyssey.
He was also a producer for Dragon Ball Evolution, but beyond that he had not given any sort of creative influence to the film, even if it needed it.
When not making a film, Stephen Chow is reported to be a taciturn and serious individual who is unenergetic and rarely if ever smiles. Some speculate that this stems from his boyhood spent in abject poverty in Kowloon, and/or the fact that just because he's good at making people laugh doesn't mean he likes doing it. Or the mob connections that got him banned from Canada as of 1995.
