(Cheung Pak Chi, Zhang Bo Zhi, Cheung Pak Ji)
Born: May 24th, 1980- Hong Kong Languages: Chinese, English Height: 5'5"
Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi exploded onto the scene in 1999 with two disparate HK movies-
Stephen Chow's King of Comedy, and Jingle Ma's romance Fly Me To Polaris, for
which she received Best New Performer honors at the Hong Kong Film Awards.
Her popularity skyrocketed from that point forward- and on top of her acting duties, she
embarked on a singing career and accepted numerous endorsements. Not bad for an
untrained teenager whose only prior professional experience was a Hi-C commercial.
Golden Harvest boss Raymond Chow declared Cheung Hong Kong cinema's new "It" girl-
and she was- yet her overnight success was coupled with the standard burdens of celebrity.
A regular subject of gossip in the Hong Kong tabloids, she is heavily stalked by the local
paparazzi. Her background was also ripe for the news rags- raised partially in Australia,
Cecilia had a tenuous relationship with her father, a man associated with the triads.
Cecilia's incessant workload kept her name on the front page, but the pressure took its
inevitable toll on the young star. In early 2002 a car stunt gone wrong performed for a television
broadcast seriously injured her spine, forcing Cheung to relinquish some acting commitments
while she recovered in the hospital.
Cecilia Cheung's often discussed real life relationship with singer/actor Daniel Chan has never
been mirrored on screen; however, she has been cinematically paired with singing stars
In 2006, Cecilia secretly married her on-again off-gain boyfriend of several years, Hong Kong
star Nicholas Tse. The couple had a baby boy, Lucas, in August 2007.
