In her career spanning five decades, Petrina Fung Bo Bo has acted in over 100
During the early 1960's she was so popular as a child actor that she required a
small team of tutors, chauffeurs and the like while she was on and off film sets.
She later went to England for a more formal education, and even learned to
perform Peking Opera. Because of her father's mishandling of her money, her tuition
had to be funded by a fan of hers.
As the daughter of Cantonese actor and director Fung Fung, show business was
already in the family; he sometimes cast her in his films as a child. Her sister
Fung So Bo is also an actress for TVB.
At age 31, Fung Bo Bo's first marriage in 1977 produced two sons, but ended in 1986.
Due to her work and lifestyle at the time she was unable to have custody of her kids.
Retiring in 1995, and wanting to escape the unrelenting spotlight which has focused
on her since the age of 5, she has been living with her grown sons in Kuala Lampur,
the place of her birth. Fung had grown tired of Hong Kong's materialism and says
living in Malaysia and reconnecting with her sons has been the happiest time in her life.
In 1999 she secretly married a Malaysian architect, to whom she was introduced
by an ardent fan who happened to be his daughter. Fung Bo Bo has spoken of her
intention to write an autobiography, and has not ruled out returning to show business.
