Bowie Wu Fung (胡楓, 胡繼修; 18 January 1931 –) is a Hong Kong actor and director with family roots in Guangdong, China. A matinee idol in the 1950s and 1960s, he began his acting career in 1953, becoming an overnight success with his debut film, Men's Hearts. In his long career he has starred opposite many of Hong Kong cinema's leading ladies, and of particular note are his many collaborations with Josephine Siao in 1960s musicals. For these roles he earned the nickname the "Dance King" for his dancing skills. In the 1970s Wu Fung began working in television and continues to do so as a contract artist to Hong Kong's TVB, with occasional guest appearances in films.

Wu Fung remains a very much loved and respected elder in Hong Kong's entertainment industry, and is "godfather" to both Jacky Cheung and Leon Lai.
