Yuen Qiu 元秋

Gotta give props to the only female of the Seven Little Fortunes (七小福) !

Yuen Qiu is an actress and martial artist. She is an expert of both Chinese martial arts and Beijing-opera skills, and was apprenticed under the same master, Yu Jim-yuen, as Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung Kam-Bo at China Drama Academy.

Yuen Qiu worked as a stunt woman and as a night club performer from the late 1960s to early 1970s. She had a small role in the international production, The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), portraying a girl student rescuing Roger Moore as James Bond. As there were few opportunities for stunt women and barely any prospects for improvement at the time, she got married in 1974 at the age of 24.

After being away from the Hong Kong film industry for nearly 20 years, she landed a role in Kung Fu Hustle only by chance. She was only accompanying a junior woman fellow of the China Drama Academy at the audition but the director's eye was on her. Reports show that Stephen Chow gave her the job after unremitting and persistent persuasion.
