                                              Westerners have appeared in Hong Kong films for decades- as

                                             extras, supporting actors, co-stars and very rarely, as the star.


                                  The first foreigner to headline HK films was Ron Van Clief. Jim Kelly, Brandon

                                      Lee and Shannon Lee have all starred in one HK movie respectively, yet

                                        the best known round-eyed star to make it in Hong Kong was blonde
                                                             American martial artist Cynthia Rothrock.

                                 As Hong Kong cinema broadens its market internationally, more non-Chinese
                                    performers are called upon to appear in its productions. The most recent
                               trend is to collaborate with Japanese stars. Hong Kong is also partnering with
                                    Korean and Singaporean actors to further diversify its audience in Asia.
