Sandra Ng was born in Hong Kong, where her father, Kenneth Ng Yiu Tung, was a renowned actor in Cantonese cinema. She enrolled to the 10th acting class of Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB), and later appeared in the long-running variety show Enjoy Yourself Tonight, as well as appearing in various drama series. Best known for her comedic performances and quirky persona, she memorably played Tsang Yau in The Duke of Mount Deer (1984).

Moving into cinema in the mid-80s, she successfully established herself as a comedienne, making her film debut in Twinkle, Twinkle, Lucky Star (1985) and delivering memorable performances in The Inspector Wears Skirts (1988), The Crazy Companies (1988), Vampire Vs Vampire (1989), Ghostly Vixen (1990), All for the Winner (1990), All’s Well, Ends Well (1992) and many more.

Although less prolific from the mid-90s, she expanded her acting range to star in the self-funded experimental film 4 Faces of Eve (1996), which brought her a nomination for Best Actress at the Hong Kong Film Awards. She then went on to win the award for Portland Street Blues (1998), for which she also won Best Actress at the 5th Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards.

In 2001, she voiced Mrs. McDull in the hit animation film My Life as McDull, returning to the role for the numerous sequels. She earned the prestigious Best Leading Actress award at the 40th Golden Horse Awards for Golden Chicken (2002), and continued to appear in the Golden Chicken series, also serving as producer for Golden Chicken 3 (2014) and 12 Golden Ducks (2015). Golden Chicken 3 and Echoes of the Rainbow (2010) earned her nominations for Best Actress at the Hong Kong Film Awards.

She made her film directorial debut with Goldbuster in 2017, which she also starred in. Over the course of her career, she became the most bankable actress in the history of Hong Kong cinema. By the 1990s, she was already a versatile artist, hosting radio and television programmes besides making films; she has also been a singer, writer, theatre performer and stand-up comedienne. Among her achievements is the top-rated Commercial Radio programme He She Hit.
