Lee Yi Hung
Birthdate : 27/2/1970
Nationality : Hong Kong
Workplace : Hong Kong
Activities : Actress (20)


In a rather astonishing rise to popularity, Theresa left Canada in 1994 where she had been raised since the age of six and returned to Hong Kong and within two years was a big star – even though her Cantonese was apparently quite awful. Upon returning to Hong Kong she entered the Miss Hong Kong Beauty Pageant and was runner up. Her very cute petite looks and bubbly personality quickly led to roles on TVB, a winning movie debut (as a cheery prostitute who charms Andy Lau and Kenny Bee) in flawed but well-meaning What a Wonderful World, then roles in two terrific films in 1996 – Big Bullet (in which she speaks some English) and Who’s the Woman, Whos’ the Man. She was nominated as Best Supporting Actress for both films. But in a strange turnabout, this seemed to cap her popularity – and since then she has really been in no films that were of this quality (or where she’s had ample screen time). Odd how these things happen – HK embraced her and then let her go. She still appears in a lot of television and her best role as of late was in a Canadian production, Lunch with Charles, in which she co-starred with her co-star Lau Ching-wan.
