Andy Cheng Kai-Chung was born in Hong Kong and began to pursue his passion for Martial Arts from an early age by studying Tae Kwon Do. In competition, Andy won a gold medal at the Hong Kong International Invitational and then won gold three years in a row between 1988 and 1990 at the Hong Kong Tae Kwon Do Open. His competitive career culminated when he won a bronze medal while representing Hong Kong at the 1991 Asian Games held in Chinese Taipei. After this win, Andy retired from competing.
In 1989 Andy’s skills and talent as a Martial Artist led him to find work in the entertainment industry. He began his career as a contracted Action Artist with Hong Kong TVB. He left TVB in 1995 when he was invited to join Jackie Chan’s legendary Sing Ga Ban – 成家班 – Stunt Team, working as Jackie Chan’s double and choreographing fight scenes for his international hits, SHANGHAI NOON, RUSH HOUR, RUSH HOUR 2 and others. In 1998, Andy moved to Hollywood, California when he was asked to work as a fight choreographer on Sammo Hung’s CBS-TV series, MARTIAL LAW.
Andy’s work in film has been recognized by the stunt and action community, resulting in fourteen nominations for the Taurus World Stunt Awards, the most of any person to date. The first year the awards were held, Andy received three nominations for his work in SHANGHAI NOON. The following year, Andy’s impressive work was nominated in six categories for RUSH HOUR 2, and he took home three of the awards.
With a career rooted in both China and Hollywood, Andy has learned his craft from some of the most highly regarded filmmakers in the world. By taking what he has learned from Hong Kong’s best Action Directors and combining this knowledge with his experience and skill in collaborating with major Hollywood studios and A-list actors, Andy is able to combine the best of both worlds to create films with universal appeal and incredible action.
