Tavia yeung s feet
Tavia Yeung is a Hong Kong actress contracted under TVB. Her elder sister, Griselda Yeung, was one of the final six contestants of Miss Hong Kong 2001. Griselda is now also a TVB actress on both TVB Jade and TVB 8.
Having graduated from the 13th TVB Artistes Training Course in 1999, Tavia starred in numerous MTVs and after a few minor roles in series such as Street Fighters and When Dreams Come True, she caught the public’s attention with her role as Ah Yan in The Awakening Story (starring Liza Wang and Damian Lau), in which she portrayed the younger sister of Maggie Cheung Ho Yee with whom she bore a remarkable resemblance.
In 2003, Tavia was awarded the Most Improved Actress of the Year by TVB with her role as Kelly, the rebellious single-mother-to be in Vigilante Force. Since then, Tavia has been selected for many roles, particularly in period dramas as she has that sense of serenity required for them. As the leading lady in Twin of Brothers, starring alongside Raymond Lam and Ron Ng, she became increasingly popular across both the Chinese mainland and overseas.
In 2007, with her ‘girl-next-door’ image, Tavia surprised the public with her role in Dicey Business as the sexy Mimi Tam. She mentioned it was this role that opened up her insights on acting. During her birthday party in 2012, she told fans that Mimi Tam is her personal favourite. Followed by the much talked about series Heart of Greed, Tavia once again assured the public with her acting skills and secured her place as a prominent female lead in TVB. Four of Yeung's series — Dicey Business, On the First Beat, Heart of Greed, and Fathers and Sons — made it into TVB's top five rated dramas of 2007.
In 2008 Yeung was well received for her performance in Moonlight Resonance. Her portrayal of Suen Ho Yuet earned her much praise by the audience and her peers. She won the "Best Supporting Actress Award" at the TVB 41st Anniversary Awards on 15 November 2008 for her role in that series.
In 2009, Tavia was one of the female leads beside Charmaine Sheh in TVB's grand production drama, Beyond the Realm of Conscience (宮心計), as Yiu Kam Ling. In October 2009, she was named as one of the nominees for Best Actress in her role as the evil and calculating Yiu Gam Ling at the 42nd TVB Anniversary Awards and was said to be a hot favourite beside veteran actress Sheren Tang. Although she did not manage to win the Best Actress award that year, Tavia managed to take home two other important awards - "My Favourite Female Character" and "Best Performance of the Year".
In 2010, one of Tavia's series, The Mysteries of Love, was released in Hong Kong and instantly became TVB's highest rated series for the first half of year. She was one of the most promoted artists in 2010 with four modern dramas to star in. These are (The Rippling Blossom, Men With No Shadows, Yes Sir, Sorry Sir, The Other Truth).
In early 2011, with less than two months of rest, Tavia was presented with a role and opportunity she could not turn down from mainland China. She cut short her leave to participate in an ancient grand production The Emperor's Harem (后宫) alongside Ady An and William Feng as the evil and conniving Imperial Corsort Wan. As soon as Yeung returned to Hong Kong from mainland china, she was presented with role after role, only taking a break from filming in October. Four of Tavia's series were released in 2011, three of which made it into the top five highest rated series in the first half of 2011.
2012 is easily Tavia's best year, with the release of three highly popular series: The Hippocratic Crush, Three Kingdoms RPG and Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles. Her popularity rose to another level as she was praised by colleagues and the audience for her strong acting skills and fantastic work ethics. The Hippocratic Crush brought Tavia her very first leading role award at the annual Malaysian Astro On Demand's My Favourite TVB Awards for "Best Actress In a Leading Role". The same night she brought home two other awards, one for "My Favourite TV Character" and the other for "My Favourite On-Screen Couple" alongside Kenneth Ma. Leading up to the all-important 45th TVB Anniversary Awards, Tavia was considered a hot favourite to take the covered Best Actress award based solely on audience voting. On December 17, 2012, she won the TVB Best Actress title for her portrayal of Hong Tse Kwan in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles.
Tavia Yeung is the first actress to win the full set of TVB Anniversary Awards from all major categories including Most Improved Female Artiste (2003), Best Supporting Actress (2008), My Favourite Female Character (2009) and Best Actress (2012).
In 2012, Him and Tavia admit to being in a relationship after Tavia was caught in Him's lap, according to photos taken by Apple Daily.
In March 2016, Tavia and Him wed in a private Ceremony at Leeds Castle. The pair have been together for over five years ever since meeting on the set of TVB's Hippocratic Crush. After returning home to Hong Kong from their wedding, the couple confirmed the good news and added that they will hold a banquet later in the year to celebrate with family and friends.
