Jenny Hu

Jenny Hu (traditional Chinese: 胡燕妮, born 17 November 1945), is a Hong Kong actress of Chinese and German origin best known for her leads in Shaw Brothers productions throughout the 1960s and early 1970s.

Hu was born in Guangdong, China to a Chinese father and German mother. After her father's death, she moved to Germany until high school. Her Eurasian looks appealed to the Chinese community and she became an instant hit. She was a popular movie actress and her films were translated into Mandarin Chinese. Bruce Lee's martial arts caused Shaw management to focus on action filled movies. Being of European descent, she was deemed "too unfit for Kung Fu movies" so she retired in the mid 1970s. She and her husband migrated to Los Angeles, California shortly thereafter, where she took up work as a beautician manager and her husband ended up in the insurance business.

Hu made her debut in Till the End of Time (何日君再來) (1966) and continued acting until her retirement at the age of 30. She came out of retirement after a nearly three-decade hiatus to appear in Yesterday Once More (2004), by Hong Kong filmmaker Johnnie To.

Her son, Terence Yin (尹子維) is also in the film industry.
