Biography
 
  Taiwanese singer. Originally known as Lin Hsi-Hsien, Lin Chong was born to a Taiwanese provincial legislator and a Japanese mother in Tainan, Taiwan. He graduated from the Tamkang Junior College of English (now Tamkang University). He started his career in 1955 as a Taiwanese film actor. In 1957 when Lin completed his military service, he was invited to play in some Taiwanese and Mandarin films. In 1962, Lin went to study in Japan, where Hong Kong had become a dreamland for film buffs. A leading Japanese film company, Toho, then signed a contract with Lin, enabling him to play in Hong Kong-Japan co-productions ''A Star of Hong Kong'' and ''Tokyo, Hong Kong, Hawaii''. Lin's popularity was extended to Hong Kong in 1968 with his avant-garde costumes and performances. He then became an actor with Shaw Brothers and played a leading role in a musical ''The Singing Thief'', directed and written by Chang Cheh. The musical was a blockbuster and Lin then played in two more similar films ''The Singing Escort'' and ''Tropicana Interlude''. (From the Celestial DVD release of ''Tropicana Interlude''). Born in Fujian, China. (Mtime.com)
