Wong Tin-Lam was a Chinese screenwriter, producer, director, and actor, who has contributed to the Hong Kong cinema scene with a career spanning six decades. He has made films in Cantonese, Mandarin and Amoy dialect.[1]


Wong began as a director in the mid-1950s, working for the Hsin Hwa Film Company. He later joined Cathay Organisation.

When Cathay Studios was shut down in the early 1970s, Wong continued to establish himself as a filmmaker, making TV drama serials by combining film production techniques with the flexibility of television production, and became a trendsetter in melodrama and wuxia serials.[1]

Wong has retired from the television production scene, and nowadays can be seen in appearances and supporting roles in films directed by Johnnie To, Wai Ka-Fai and his son, Wong Jing, who has followed in his footsteps.
