                                                                                    (Cheng Sau Man, Zheng Xiu Wen, Twinnie Cheng)                  

                    Singer, Actress

                                                     Born: August 19, 1972       Languages: Chinese, English 


                                     Hong Kong stars who both act and sing are fairly common, but actress and singer

                                    Sammi Cheng Sau Man has achieved a level of popularity that would be difficult for

                                                                   most contenders in her field to duplicate.


                                  While Sammi is currently one of the most bankable female stars in Hong Kong cinema,

                                    she first entered the entertainment field as a pop singer. Performing numerous chart

                                      topping love songs gave her the credibility with audiences to play in a dozen films

                                                                    by 2002 -nearly all of them love stories. 

                                                                                     Summer I Love You

                                  Producers have paired Sammi Cheng with her male Cantopop colleagues in romances 

                                repeatedly because the formula has proven so marketable. After the success of Needing

                                   You (2000) a yuppie romance with Andy Lau, she and Andy were stuffed into fat suits 

                                 for another romance, Love on a Diet, a year later. Golden Harvest was so pleased with  

                                 the box office of Summer Holiday that they reunited Richie Ren and Sammi Cheng in

                                   Marry a Rich Man. Sammi has also played opposite Leon Lai, Ekin Cheng, Louis 

                                                  Koo and Tony Leung Chiu Wai in Hong Kong romance pictures.


                                     At the 21st Hong Kong Film Awards, Sammi dominated the Best Actress category

                                  by being nominated for three movies- a feat that had only been achieved previously by 

                                  HK superstar Chow Yun Fat. Though she didn't win, her 3 nominations, which put her  

                                   up against veteran actresses Anita Mui and Sylvia Chang, were an undeniable sign 

                                                                        of her well established starpower.


                                   Sammi Cheng's music is featured in many of her films. An album compiling 17 movie

                                     themes and soundtrack tunes from her own films was released in 2002; continuing

                                          the tradition of the complementary marriage of Cantonese music and cinema.
