She was the most famous Hong Kong Category III actress. She quit the industry in 1997 to get married. Born on June 10, 1965, she went to Kau Kam English College and after graduating joined the ATV acting classes. She signed a contract with Golden Harvest in 1987 and began getting small roles in various films. It was her part in Sex and Zen in 1991 that made her a huge star. Even though she has taken on a number of sexy parts, Amy is equally famous for never revealing everything. This created the term "Yip Tease" in which she magically manages to cover the vital bits. Over a film career that lasted only from the late 1980's to the mid-90's, Amy Yip was able to turn herself into one of the best known cult stars in HK history. Amy built her career on a voluptuous figure and a willingness to poke fun at it. Majority of her films are comedies in which she is often the target of jokes regarding her figure. Often her role in a film is no more than a cameo in which she displays some cleavage for good humor and then is gone always leaving a memorable impression. There is also a certain sweetness about her face and personality that is so in contrast with her over grown proportions. Her films can roughly be divided into three categories, Cat III, comedies and exploitive dramas. Sex and Zen, was a huge hit in HK and made her famous throughout the world. Erotic Ghost Story, Robotrix, Jail House Eros are some of her movies. The comedies she starred in are My Neighbors are Phantoms, Ghostly Vixen, Great Pretenders, Stooges in HK, Magnificent Scoundrels. Few dramas in which she was surprisingly decent To Be Number One, Requital and China Dolls. And not to be missed are her two "girls with guns" films - The Inspector Wears Skirts II and III in which she plays one of the members of the female cop squad. Finally she has two classic cameos one in another Stephen Chow film Look Out Officer with Stanley Fung and perhaps her most famous scene is a cameo in Blue Jean Monster in which she plays a prostitute called Death Ray.
