Ti Lung (traditional Chinese: ??), or Dik Lung, is a Hong Kong actor.

He was born on 3 August 1946 in Xinhui, Guangdong, China, and studied Wing Chun under the martial arts master Chu Wan. In 1969, Ti was found by the Shaw Brothers and cast in Return of the One Armed Swordsman opposite David Chiang, a role which would launch his career as one of the best known faces in classic Wuxia film. He became a common face associated with David Chiang, Alexander Fu Sheng, Ku Feng, Gordon Liu, and other Shaw Bros. stars at the time, often cast as a dashing, noble hero as well as a capable martial artist.

Although he left Shaw Brothers Studios in the 1980s, Ti Lung’s career took a turn for the worse until 1986, when John Woo’s A Better Tomorrow cast him opposite Chow Yun-Fat in the role of a Triad member. The movie was a box office success and placed Ti Lung back in the public consciousness, although it changed his image from the handsome martial youth to the tortured, would-be hero gangster. After that role, Ti Lung’s next most recognisable appearance would be with Jackie Chan in Drunken Master II, in which he co-starred as Wong Kei-Ying, father of Chinese folk hero Wong Fei Hung. From there, he has continued to work in television in a variety of roles. He is the uncle of Jerry Lamb and Jan Lamb.
