Terence Yin was born in 1975 in Hong Kong to a movie-director father and a famous-actress mother. He acted in a few films as a child, then immigrated to the United States with his family in 1982, and studied rhetoric at the University of California at Berkeley, only to return to Hong Kong when a Taiwanese record company offered him a singing contract. Thinking he would launch a career in singing, Yin was offered his first movie just three months after returning to Asia, and by the time his first album was released, he had already done several films and decided to focus on acting.
Fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English, Yin now has more than 19 films and two TV dramas in his filmography, and he has released an album in Taiwan. His films include Gen-X Cops, Hot War, The Hazard City and Bullets of Love.
