Liu Xiao Ling Tong
One may know Liu Xiao Ling Tong for his superlative performance in the Journey to the West, but not know who Zhang Jinlai is. One may know the super power of the Monkey King - his somersault cloud bearing humanity's dream to fly through the air, but may not know that the actor portraying of the world’s most loved super ‘monkey’ does not even drive a car. In the eyes of the world’s Journey to the West fans, Liu Xiao Ling Tong is synonymous ndwith Wukong but, in fact, he also played many of the other supporting roles in the 1986 TV series and, earlier, various figures such as Lu Xun and Zhou Enlai in a good many big screen creations. He is Liu Xiao Ling Tong, or Zhang Jinlai, the Monkey King, as known by the world; and he must be one of the loneliest people on this planet, forever sitting up in his heavenly throne.
