Lau Kar-leung, the Hong Kong kung fu master and filmmaker who died recently, aged 76, was a colossus in the world of martial arts movies. Having earned a lifetime achievement award at the Hong Kong Film Awards in 2010, Lau was renowned for landmark movies including The Spiritual Boxer , The 36th Chamber of Shaolin and Drunken Master II . The latter involved a style of fighting known as drunken boxing, or zui quan, in which participants appear to imitate the movements of drunkards. Lau is survived by his wife, Mary Jean Reimer … The former actress, now a solicitor, starred in a handful of fantasy wuxia films in the early 1980s, including 1983's Little Dragon Maiden , in which she played Xiaolongnu - a character described by writer Jin Yong as "beautiful and elegant beyond description [but] cold and indifferent". Reimer provided legal representation for the family of a former model whose dismembered skeleton was discovered in a Yau Ma Tei flat in 1999. The model's name was Annie Pang Chor-ying … Pang's headless remains - her skull was found in the apartment's rubbish bin - "turned up" four years after she went missing, when a former employee of lawyer John Fang Meng-sang, Pang's ex-lover, brought them to the attention of the police. The coroner's inquest found insufficient evidence that she had been either murdered or committed suicide. Also assisting Pang's family was lawmaker Leung Yiu-chung … Leung, known for his silvery mane of hair, is both a believer in communism and a member of the pan-democracy camp in the Legislative Council, where he represents the pro-labour Neighbourhood and Workers Service Centre. In 2004, his office was smeared with excrement after he criticised Beijing's veto on political reform in Hong Kong. Leung's fellow alumni of the University of Essex, in Britain, include American-Polish architect Daniel Libeskind … Libeskind was born in 1946, in Lodz, Poland, to Jewish parents who had survived the Holocaust. A virtuoso accordion player as a child, he won a scholarship from the America Israel Cultural Foundation and the family moved to the United States when he was 13. Having watched the World Trade Centre in New York being built in the 1960s - Libeskind's father worked in a print shop in Lower Manhattan - he was later chosen to oversee rebuilding plans following the September 11 terrorist attacks. Libeskind's other buildings include City University's Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre, named, in case you hadn't guessed, in honour of Hong Kong media mogul and philanthropist Run Run Shaw … Now 105, the much-loved entrepreneur - born Shao Ren Leng - gave up his chairmanship of TVB (the television station he co-founded in 1967) in 2011. He is said to have donated billions of Hong Kong dollars over the years to local charities, schools and hospitals. Widowed in 1987, he remarried at the age of 90, in a ceremony in Las Vegas, to film and television producer Mona Fong Yat-wah. Fong produced her last film, Drunken Monkey , in 2003. It was directed by, and starred, the late Lau Kar-leung.
