Jeanette was born in Shanghai but came with her family to Hong Kong in 1949 where she studied at St. Stephen's College. At the age of 17 she joined Liberty Film. Jeanette Lin was one of the most famous of the Mandarin actresses in Hong Kong during the 1950's and 1960's appearing in all sorts of different kinds of films - from tear jerkers to James Bond rip-offs. In 1957 her performance in Our Sister Hedy made her a star. Some of her other film titles are The Golden Buddha, Crimson Rose, Dark Daughter, Blundering Woman Detective and Sister Long Legs. Her nickname was "The Student's Sweetheart". In 1959, he married director Qin Jan - but the marriage did not work out. She had a scandalous affair with Jimmy Wang Yu and her husband divorced her - and then later committed suicide. In 1969 she married Wang Yu - and also pretty much retired from the film business at the same time. Her marriage to Wang Yu also fell apart under a cloud of charges of wife beating and lesbianism. In 1976, shortly after her divorce with Wang Yu, she both wrote and directed a movie called Divorce Hong-Kong Style that seems to have an autobiographical aspect to it. Their daughter is the terrific singer and occasional actress Linda Wang. In 1989 Jeanette made a brief return to film to appear in a remake of Our Sister Hedy - now playing the mother - that is called Four Loves. Then in 1990 she was in an American production called Iron and Silk that takes place in the Mainland. By the way, actor Kenneth Tsang is her brother. Yves Gendron
