Over the years, Kenny Bee has amassed an impressive number of credits to his acting résumé. While his film career began in the mid-seventies and has continued to the present day, some would be surprised to know that Bee actually got his big break not as an actor, but as a charter member of Hong Kong's premier seventies rock band: The Wynners. With their upbeat style and charming good looks, The Wynners enjoyed a massive fan following. Taking a page from American singers-turned-actors, Bee and fellow bandmates Alan Tam and Anthony Chan used their popularity as musicians to break into the film business.

Bee's filmography is filled with many diverse types of acting roles. In the 1980s, he seemed to specialize in romantic comedies, acquitting himself nicely in such films as the recent Shaw Brothers re-release Let's Make Laugh (1983) and Shanghai Blues (1984), which was directed by noted auteur Tsui Hark. In the 1990s, Bee starred in several comedies, most notably teaming up with box office king Stephen Chow for Fist of Fury 1991 and its humorous sequel. Not limiting himself to comedic roles, Bee also worked on a pair of swordplay epics during that period, Corey Yuen Kwai's Savior of the Soul (1991) and Sammo Hung Kam-Bo's Moon Warriors (1992), both of which co-starred Andy Lau and Anita Mui. One of Kenny Bee's best roles of the nineties balanced the comedic with the dramatic, as he portrayed a down-on-his-luck chef in yet another Tsui Hark-directed film, The Chinese Feast (1995), which also featured late Leslie Cheung.

Sadly, Bee recently filed for personal bankruptcy. Since the late nineties, the actor has worked tirelessly to pay off his debt, but the estimated HK$250 million debt proved too large a number for the actor to handle himself. Nevertheless, the former Wynner appeared in no less than six films in 2002, one of which was the sixteenth installment of the Troublesome Night series. (Sanjuro 2003)
