Daniel Wu Yan-Zu is an American-born Hong Kong actor and producer who stars in the AMC martial arts drama series Into the Badlands. Since his film debut in 1998, he has been featured in over 60 films, he is known as a "distinctive" leading actor in the Chinese language film industry. Wu was born in Berkeley and raised in Orinda, California, his parents, Diana, a college professor and George Wu, a retired engineer, are natives of Shanghai, China. His father immigrated to the United States after the communist revolution in China in 1949 and met his mother in New York, where she was a student. After marrying, they settled in California. Wu has two older sisters and Gloria and an older brother who died when he was two. Wu developed an interest in martial arts when he saw Jet Li in The Shaolin Temple and Donnie Yen in Iron Monkey, began studying wushu at age 11, his childhood role model was Jackie Chan, a man who now considers Wu "like a son." Wu attended the Head-Royce School in Oakland and majored in architecture at the University of Oregon.
While there, he founded the University of Oregon Wushu Club in 1994 and served as the team's first coach. During this time, Wu took film classes and frequented local theaters, came to enjoy the works of filmmakers like Akira Kurosawa and Luc Besson, whom he describes as "men of vision."Following graduation, Wu traveled in 1997 to Hong Kong to witness the handover of Hong Kong, with no intention of taking on a movie career. At the suggestion of his sister, Wu began modeling. Four months film director Yonfan, after seeing Wu featured in a clothing ad at a railway station, approached Wu about starring in an upcoming movie. Despite his inability at the time to speak Hong Kong Cantonese or read Chinese, Wu completed his first movie, Yonfan's Bishonen in 1998. Still today, when he receives a Cantonese script, his assistant reads the entire piece, while he is making notes on the pronunciation; the day after Bishonen wrapped, Wu was offered the leading role in Mabel Cheung's City of Glass and a supporting part in Young and Dangerous: The Prequel, from Andrew Lau's gangster film series.
Around this time, Wu met superstar Jackie Chan at a restaurant opening and was signed to Chan's JC Group with agent Willie Chan. Wu's breakthrough performance came in 1999 with his role in Benny Chan's Gen-X Cops, he followed this success with roles in a variety of movies including big-budget thriller Purple Storm, art-house production Peony Pavilion and the successful Love Undercover. In 2001, Wu received criticism from the Hong Kong media for sexual scenes with Suki Kwan in Cop on a Mission, but Wu says that same criticism attracted the attention of directors and the film represented a turning point in the types of roles he chose in the future. Wu's first experience in film production came with his starring role in Julian Lee's 2003 film, Night Corridor. Due to budgetary constraints, Wu participated in the search for funding for and distribution of, the film and recruited Jun Kung to create the soundtrack. Though Night Corridor dealt with "risky" themes, Wu felt he had less reliance on image than many of his pop-star actor peers, he was nominated for best actor at Taiwan's 40th Golden Horse Film Awards for his effort.
During 2003, Wu took part as producer and creative director on "MTV's Whatever Things!", a "Jackass"-styled program aired in Asia featuring Sam Lee, Josie Ho, Terence Yin, other celebrities. During 2003, Wu took part in a stage production of The Happy Prince at the Edward Lam Dance Theater as part of the Hong Kong Arts Festival, during which he recited a 16-minute monologue in Cantonese, learned from pinyin. In 2005, Wu was nominated as best actor at the 24th Hong Kong Film Awards for his role in Derek Yee's One Nite in Mongkok, as best supporting actor for New Police Story. At the 41st Golden Horse Film Awards, Wu won the award for best supporting actor for New Police Story; the win came as a surprise to him, because he "didn't think that much" of his performance in the film. In 2005, Chinese media began to report that Wu had formed a boy band, with Terence Yin, Andrew Lin and Conroy Chan. Wu and his bandmates posted information, personal thoughts, the band's music, at their official website.
In 2006, Wu made his writing and directorial debut with The Heavenly Kings, which chronicles Alive's formation and exploits. After the film's release, however, it was revealed that The Heavenly Kings was a mockumentary of the Hong Kong pop music industry, Alive was constructed purely as a vehicle to make the movie. Wu admitted his own singing voice "sucked bad," and the band had their voices digitally enhanced for its music, to prove that "it's easy to fake it." Despite some backlash from the media over being intentionally fed false information in the movie about illegal downloads of the band's music, Wu won the best new director award at the 26th Hong Kong Film Awards, an achievement he called "a group effort."In November 2015, he began starring as Sunny on the AMC action series Into the Badlands, for which he serves as executive producer. In 2016, he portrayed via motion capture and voiced Gul'dan, the central antagonist of the action fantasy film Warcraft, based upon the popular video game series by Blizzard.
In April 2007, Wu re-launched his band's old website, AliveNotDead.com, with Terence Yin and Ro
Orange Sky Golden Harvest
Orange Sky Golden Harvest SEHK: 1132 known as Golden Harvest from 1970 to 2009, is a film production and exhibition company based in Hong Kong. It dominated Hong Kong box office sales from the 1970s to 1980s and played a major role in introducing Hong Kong films to the Western market those by Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung. Notable names in the company include its founders, the veteran film producers Raymond Chow and Leonard Ho. Chow and Ho were executives with Hong Kong's top studio Shaw Brothers but left in 1970 to form their own studio, they succeeded by taking a different approach from the centralised Shaw model. Golden Harvest contracted with independent producers and gave talent more generous pay and greater creative freedom; some filmmakers and actors from Shaw Brothers defected. But what put the company on the map was a 1971 deal with soon-to-be martial arts superstar Bruce Lee with the film The Big Boss, after he had turned down the low-paying standard contract offered him by the Shaws.
In 1973, Golden Harvest entered into a pioneering co-production with Hollywood for the English-language Bruce Lee film, Enter the Dragon, a worldwide hit made with the Warner Brothers studio and Concord Production Inc. Following Lee's death, Golden Harvest found success with the Hui Brothers' comedies such as Games Gamblers Play, The Last Message, The Private Eyes, The Contract and Security Unlimited. Golden Harvest supplanted Shaw Brothers as Hong Kong's dominant studio by the end of the 1970s and retained that position into the 1990s, its greatest asset for years was that from the 1980s until recently, it produced all of the films of Jackie Chan. Golden Harvest has produced a number of films with Jet Li and Donnie Yen. Golden Harvest produced The Cannonball Run and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trilogy in the United States. In 1992, Golden Village, a 50:50 joint venture between Golden Harvest and Village Roadshow of Australia was set up to develop and operate modern, multiplex cinemas in Singapore.
In 1993, Golden Harvest sold its film library to Star TV. Golden Harvest was listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 1994. Golden Harvest's activity has declined since the death of Leonard Ho in 1998. In 2003, they withdrew from film-making to concentrate on film financing and cinema management in Hong Kong and in Mainland China. In 2004, Li Ka-shing and EMI became shareholders of the company. In 2007, Raymond Chow sold the company to Chinese businessman Wu Kebo, who owns the China-based Orange Sky Entertainment Group. In early 2009, Golden Harvest was renamed Orange Sky Golden Harvest. In 2009, Golden Harvest announced their relaunch and previewed a new trailer set for movies in 2010. In October 2017, Golden Harvest acquired the other 50% stake of Golden Harvest from its joint venture partner, Village Roadshow, therefore having full ownership of Golden Village; this was after a prior bid by Singapore-based media mini-conglomerate MM2 Asia to acquire the Village Roadshow stake in June 2017, as Village Roadshow failed to secure the approval of Golden Harvest.
It is unknown whether the Village name will be dropped from Golden Village as a result of the acquisition. Orange Sky Golden Harvest has cinemas not only in Hong Kong, but in Mainland China and Singapore. Most of these are joint ventures. Golden Village, now owned by Orange Sky Golden Harvest, was a former joint venture with Village Roadshow responsible for the operation of Gold Class cinemas and Asia's first multiplex. In Malaysia, the group was instrumental in the formation of the country's two largest cinema chains: Golden Screen Cinemas, a joint venture with Malaysia's PPB Group who bought out Golden Harvest's stake for full ownership, TGV Cinemas, a joint venture with Tanjong of Malaysia and Village Roadshow of Australia, the former having bought out the remaining stakes for full ownership; the company has acquired Warner Village in Taiwan.
