The Goddess of HK Cinema: Athena Chu

Foreword Page 0
 

Male actors have dominated the Hong Kong movie industry. In those conditions, the career of a Hong Kong actress is tougher compared to their male counterpart. Only a few, the best one, make their way in the long run. A good illustration of the later sort is given by Hong Kong actress Athena Chu who confirms her great value for HK cinema with each passing year.
