Ms. Michelle Yeoh Choo Kheng (1962-)
Actress and producer Michelle Yeoh began her show business after championing Miss Malaysia Beauty Contest in 1983. In 1984, she came to Hong Kong for the production of a watch commercial with Chow Yun-fat, a move which paved her way to the Hong Kong movie industry. With the film "Yes, Madam" (1985), Yeoh became the number one actress of action films. In 1992, she shot "Police Story III Super Cop" (1992) alongside Jackie Chan, in which she performed daredevil stunts without a double and made herself known internationally. Yeoh went on to achieve international stardom when she took part in "Tomorrow Never Dies" (1997), the 1997 James Bond film. Next stop was Hollywood with her appearances in Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (2000). In 2001, Yeoh founded Han Entertainment Co., where she produced and acted in "The Touch" (2002) and "Silver Hawk" (2004). Her recent film projects were mainly joint ventures involving many countries, including “The Lady” (2011).
