Donnie Yen (born 27 July 1963), also known as Yen Ji-dan (甄子丹), is a Hong Kong actor, martial artist, film director and producer, action choreographer, and world wushutournament medalist.[1] He is best known for his role as Ip Man in the eponymous film.

Yen is credited by many[2][3][4] for contributing to the popularization of the traditional martial arts style known as Wing Chun. He played Wing Chun grandmaster Ip Man in the 2008 film Ip Man, which was a box office success. This has led to an increase in the number of people taking up Wing Chun, leading to hundreds of new Wing Chun schools to be opened up in mainland China and other parts of Asia.[5] Ip Chun, the eldest son of Ip Man, even mentioned that he is grateful to Yen for making his family art popular and allowing his father’s legacy to be remembered.[6]

Yen is considered to be Hong Kong’s top action star; director Peter Chan mentioned that he “is the ‘it’ action person right now” and “has built himself into a bona fide leading man, who happens to be an action star.”[7] Yen is widely credited for bringing mixed martial arts (MMA) into the mainstream of Chinese culture, by choreographing MMA in many of his recent films. Yen has displayed notable skills in a wide variety of martial arts, being well-versed in boxing, kickboxing, Jeet Kune Do, taekwondo, Muay Thai, wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Wing Chun, and Wushu. Seen as one of the most popular film stars in Asia in recent years, Yen is currently one of the highest paid actors in Asia in 2009.[8] Yen has earned 220 million HKD (28.4 million USD) from four films and six advertisements in 2013

Gentry rose to international fame with her intriguing Southern Gothic narrative “Ode to Billie Joe” in 1967.[2] The track spent four weeks as the No. 1 pop song on the Billboard Hot 100chart and was fourth in the Billboard year-end chart of 1967[3] and earned her Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 1968. Gentry charted eleven singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and four singles on the United Kingdom Top 40.[4] Her album Fancy brought her a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. After her first albums, she had a successful run of variety shows on the Las Vegas Strip. She lost interest in performing in the late 1970s, and since has lived privately in Los Angeles.
