While studying for a marketing degree, Montreal native Christy Chung entered and won
the 1993 Miss Chinese International beauty pageant, beginning a successful career in
show business. She began in 1993 by playing Andy Lau's girlfriend in the Wong Jing
comedy Perfect Exchange, and another role in The Bride With White Hair 2. The
following year she co-starred with comedy king Stephen Chow in Love on Delivery
and Hail the Judge, and played the love interest of Jet Li in the action-romance
The Bodyguard From Beijing. As she became more of a fixture of the entertainment
scene, Christy dated stars including Alex To and Aaron Kwok.
In 1995 audiences continued to see Christy Chung in theatres on a bi-monthly basis.
She and Simon Yam burned the screen in two action romances released the same week-
Benny Chan's cop drama Man Wanted and Clarence Fok's obtuse Passion 1995.
She also added two more Yuen Wo Ping films two her resume, Tai Chi 2 and
The Red Wolf, though these flower vase roles reinforced her image as a starlet rather
than a serious actress.
Her career had a hiatus in 1997 when she married a British spa owner and delivered her
daughter, Yasmine. After divorcing, she returned to the scene more ambitiously
than ever in 1999.
Fluent in English, Chinese, French and Vietnamese, Christy has set her aims toward
the international market by filming in Korea, Thailand and India, and is in negotiations
to work in America. In 2001 she performed nude sex scenes in the controversial Thai
film Jandara, and also co-starred in a similarly titled art film set in Tibet- Samsara.
Besides acting, the Chinese / Vietnamese beauty has kept busy as the spokesperson
for several products and services, including being the face of a diet centre, and has
shown off her sexy body in a revealing 2001 erotic pictorial- Feel.. Christy Chung.
