Shih Szu


Shih Szu

Shih Szu (born October 24, 1953) is an actress from Taiwan. Born Lei Qui Si to parents from Hunan Province. A ballet student from the age of six, at the age of sixteen, she joined the Shaw Brothers and began appearing in films such as The Crimson Charm and The Rescue. However, the film that would rocket her to stardom would be her appearance opposite the famous Cheng Pei Pei in 1971’s The Lady Hermit. She then would go on to appear in numerous wuxia and kung fu films such as The Thunderbolt Fist, Heroes of Sung, The Shadow Boxer, The Lady of the Law and many more. The Shaws, seeing great potential in her, gave her a role in Hammer and the Shaws’ co-production Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires but sadly the film was not successful internationally and failed to make even a minor cult star out of Shih Szu.

By the mid to late 70s she was mostly relegated to supporting roles in films for such directors as Chang Cheh (Marco Polo, The Naval Commandos), Chor Yuen (Jade Tiger, Clan of Amazons) and Sun Chung (Avenging Eagle, The Deadly Breaking Sword). She also began to appear in films in Hong Kong and Taiwan outside of Shaw Brothers such as The Revenger and Wu Tang Clan. Her last film at the Shaw Brothers (though not last released) was 1980’s A Deadly Secret, whereupon she would return to Taiwan and resume her film career there. Her last appearance was in a Taiwanese TV series in 1987. She has been missing in action ever seen.
