Maggie Cheung

Maggie Cheung Man-yuk (age 42) of Hong Kong origin is probably the most well-known and most liked movie actress in China and parts of Asia.

Maggie Cheung

Cheung spent part of her childhood and adolescence in the United Kingdom. Upon her return to Hong Kong, Cheung ran and won second place in the Miss Hong Kong beauty pageant contest in 1983 at the age of 19, and was a semi-finalist in the Miss World pageant the same year.

One of Cheung's many notable movie roles is that of "May", the girlfriend of police detective "Kevin" Chan Ka Kui in the Jackie Chan's Police Story movies. Audiences outside Asia have become increasingly familiar with her work, including her roles in Centre Stage (as Ruan Lingyu), In the Mood for Love, Irma Vep, 2046, Hero, and Clean.

I have the honour to be filming Maggie in an interview with my dear friends Sandy Wang (interviewer) and Vivian Hu (sound recordist).
