Kristopher Kum (23 June 1929-15 March 2013)[1] played Fu Peng in the Doctor Who story The Mind of Evil.

He was not the original actor cast for Fu Peng, but stepped in after a disastrous location shoot. Just prior to the studio recording, director Timothy Combe came to Kum — then the head of Oriental Casting, a talent agency for actors of Southeast Asian descent — and Kum put himself forward. However, in a way not detectable to Combe — or most audience members — he was partially inappropriate for the role, since the part required a Hokkien speaker and he natively spoke Cantonese.
