(Maggie Quigley, Margaret Denise Quigley)
Born: May 22, 1979, Hawaii
Raised in Hawaii, Maggie Q came to Hong Kong and emerged as one of the top models.
Her prominence on fashion runways, commercials for print and television, pictorials, a
former relationship with actor Daniel Wu as well as other rumoured affairs have made
her a regular media figure in Hong Kong. Being half Vietnamese and half American,
Maggie's mixed looks are especially popular with advertisers seeking to market to
a broader, more international clientele.
Already a 'star', acting was an inevitable next step for Maggie Q, signing with Willie
Chan's management, who also represents Jackie Chan and former beau Daniel Wu.
In 2000 Maggie made the unsuccessful low budget horror film Model From Hell with
Simon Yam, playing the title character in her movie debut.
The same year she played an FBI agent in Media Asia's blockbuster Gen-Y Cops, a big
budget action film aimed at the international market.
In 2001 she completed Alfred Cheung's Manhattan Midnight. Filmed in America, the
film is notable for being shot entirely with digital technology and for featuring
Maggie Q's dual role as twin sisters.
In 2002 Maggie Q co-starred with Anya as trained assassins in Wong Jing's
Naked Weapon, a spin-off of 1992's Naked Killer.
Maggie co-stars with Tom Cruise in the 2006 action film Mission Impossible 3.
