Biography Timeline


Stephen Chow was born in Hong Kong on 22 June 1962 to Ling Po Yee (凌寶兒), an alumna of Guangzhou Normal University, and Chow Yik Sheung (周驛尚), an immigrant from Ningbo, Zhejiang. Chow has an elder sister named Chow Man Kei (周文姬) and a younger sister named Chow Sing Ha (周星霞). Chow's given name "Sing-chi" (星馳) derives from Tang dynasty (618–907) Chinese poet Wang Bo's essay Preface to the Prince of Teng's Pavilion.

Chow attended Heep Woh Primary School, a missionary school attached to the Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China in Prince Edward Road, Kowloon Peninsula.
