Birthdate : 13/12/1968
Nationality : Taiwan
Workplace : Hong Kong, Taiwan
Activities : Actress (51), Cameo (1)


This lovely Taiwanese actress grew up wanting to be a dancer, but switched her interest to acting when that didn't work out. Her dance training certainly came in handy though when Dickson Poon was looking to replace the retiring Michelle Yeoh in the Line of Duty films. She had appeared in a few small films in Taiwan, but this break was to launch her career as one of the top female action stars of the 80's and early 90's. The English name given to her was a combination of Michelle Khan (as Michelle Yeoh was billed at the time) and Cynthia Rothrock.

She appeared in a number of girls with guns films - the best probably being her first three In the Line of Duty ones - III, IV and V. Queens High which has the famous image of Cynthia blasting away with a machine gun in her wedding dress is another to look for.

Unlike some of the other girls with guns stars, Cynthia broke out of that genre to some degree and appeared in a number of period action films With the demise of the “Girls with Guns” and fantasy films, Cynthia is primarily appearing in TV roles these days. In 1999 she lost her house during the horrible earthquake in Taiwan.
