In the late silent and early sound eras, Xie Yunqing 谢云卿 was another of those supporting players who seemed to be in everything. A native of Zhenjiang, Jiangsu, he made his motion picture debut in 1925 with the Shanghai Shadow Play Company, in《The Young Gentleman》, a Chinese version of《Little Lord Fauntleroy》 . He moved in 1926 to the Da Zhonghua (Greater China) Film Company, where he became a mainstay supporting player, appearing in 14 films in 1928 alone. In 1930 he moved to the Mingxing studio, continuing as a frequently appearing supporting player. Xie disappeared from the screen in 1932. (The reasons are unrecorded, but probably to do stage work.) He returned in late 1933, continuing with Mingxing until the beginning of the war and appearing in importang supporting roles in some of that studio's best films. He had one non-acting credit in 1929 when he wrote and directed《Kisses Once》. Given that film's success, it is curious that it was his only such effort.
