Yuen Qiu, born Cheung Cheun Nam, is a Hong Kong 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 accepted the role for Kung Fu Hustle after Stephen Chow's continuous persuasion.

Yuen is also in a movie trilogy called Kung Fu Mahjong, with Yuen Wah. Edit Biography
