Patrick Tse Yin enrolled in the Actors Training Course at Ling Kwong Films Company in 1953, and made his filming debut in "Taps Off, Downstairs".
His first leading role came with "The Strange Case of Three Wives". In 1955, Tse joined the Kwong Ngai Film Company and starred in 72 films in a span of 13 years. They include such classics as "The Pretty Tigress", "MyIntimate Partner", "The Rose in Tears", "Story of a Discharged Prisoner" and so on.
His handsome look and debonair style sometime typecast him as a rebel on screen, but they also earned him the reputation of the "Movie Prince" in real life.
Tse founded the Tse Brothers Films Company and produced "Winter Love", "Window", "Madness of Love" and many others. With "Madness of Love", Patrick embarked on his career as a director.
In 2004, Tse was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Hong Kong Film Critics Association.
