Teresa Cheung - Show Reel
Born in Hong Kong to parents of Shanghainese descent, Cheung appeared in her first advertisement at the age of three.
After relocating to Canada at age 15 with her family, she studied at the University of Toronto, majoring in Fine Arts History and English literature.
She moved to Los Angeles in 2006.
Despite having no prior experience as a professional actor, Cheung was given a leading role in the 2004 film Colour Blossoms. Writer/director Yonfan stated that she was his inspiration for the film. Cheung received a number of awards and nominations for her role, only narrowly missing out on a Best Actress Award to Zhang Ziyi from the Hong Kong Film Critics Society.
In 2005, Cheung signed with the China Central Television (CCTV), becoming the first female, Hong Kong-based actress to join the network artist management.
Diamond Trade Center invited Cheung to the Oscars 2006 Diamond Aquifer Suite Event at the Soho House in Los Angeles, making her the first Asian actress ever invited.
In 1988, Cheung married Hong Kong pop star and actor Kenny Bee. The couple divorced in 1997.
