Francis Ng Chun-Yu (Chinese: ; born December 21, 1961) is a Hong Kong actor.



Like so many of Hong Kong's actors, Ng has his roots in television. He graduated from TVB's training classes in 1985. He acted in minor roles working gradually upwards in the television hierarchy, but his looks did not fit in the conventional leading man role. He eventually broke into the film scene in 1991.

Ng's turning point in his acting career came in Young and Dangerous (1995), as villain Ugly Kwan, which was so popular that it spun an unofficial spin-off in Once Upon a Time in Triad Society (1996). His output has steadily increased since then, and he has won the HK Film Critics Society Best Actor three times, for Once Upon a Time in a Triad Society, Bullets Over Summer (1999) and 2000 AD (2000).

Along with Lau Ching-Wan and Anthony Wong, he was named as one of the major three character actors working in the Hong Kong film industry at the 25th Hong Kong International Film Festival. His intense, compelling personas on and off-screen have earned him the nickname "Mental".

He supplied the voice for Mr. Incredible/Bob Parr in the Cantonese version of Disney and Pixar's The Incredibles.
