Response to Re: One head shorter than actual Brandon
A big thank you to Ed Chan for the info which serves as a kind reminder.
Yes, the little boy is in fact, Au Yeung Tak-Dung's younger brother, Au Yeung Tak-Fan. On the far right and in front of Unicorn Chan is their older brother, Au Yeung Tak-Yiu. On the far left is Au Yeung older sister and besides her is her friend.
Actually the 3 little Au Yeung brothers have some reputation back in HK. Au Yeung Tak-Dung (2nd brother) was the god-brother of Sylvia Lai who recommended him to Bruce and Unicorn Chan and later got a cameo appearance in Fist of Unicorn (1972). He also made another movie, Women of Desire (1974) directed by Lui Kei. Tak-Dung and Tak Yiu were reported on the newspaper as two talented child actors in HK. Tak-Yiu had played Legends of Lust (1972) directed by famous director Li Han-Hsiang. All the 3 Au Yeung brothers and sister are the children of HK celebrity Au Yeung Lam-Shuk-Ying, the honorary president of Kwun Chung Rendezvous Association. Like Syvlia Lai and Betty Lai, all the Au Yeung Siblings once enrolled and studied in New Method College (NMC) in Kowloon.
According to the HK newspaper, Au Yeung Tak-Dung was 9 years old in 1972, his older brother Au Yeung Tak-Yiu was 2 years older than him. The youngerst Au Yeung Tak-Fan was only 4 years old according to his personal bio data (born on 9 Oct 1968). Unlike his 2 older brothers who made only few films in their childhood days and retired from the entertainment scene very early, Tak-Fan entered the HK entertainment industry only in 1984 when he won the 3rd place in a HK singing competition. He subsequently became a singer, host and DJ. He only made 1 movie, Close Escape in 1989. Still active in the HK entertainment industry, he ocassionally flew back to U.K. to visit his siblings there. Tak-Fan is also a Bruce Lee's fan though his memory of Bruce was very vague since he was only a little kid then.
