Along with Maggie Cheung Ho-yee, Kenix Kwok, Flora Chan and Jessica Hsuan, Choi is known as one of the Top 5 "Fa Dans" (term used for actresses with high popularity) of TVB from the mid-1990s to mid-2000s.

In 2009, she starred in Rebellion as a triad gang leader who chain-smokes and curses, a different type of role for Ada.

Personal life[edit]

On 12 January 2008, Choi married Chinese actor Zhang Jin, born on (1974-05-19) 19 May 1974 (age 40),[1][2] whom she had dated for four and a half years. He was her co-star in a number of Zhouyi Media television productions including Paradise and Eight Charts. Their daughter Zoe Zhang Chor-yee (張楚兒) was born on 11 May 2011.[3] Their second daughter, Zhang Shun-yee (張信兒), was born on 25 March 2013.[4]

Choi revealed in 2000 that her mother is a compulsive gambler who incurred millions of debts, which Choi has been paying off since she was 17 years old with all her earnings. Unable to pay off further debts, Choi severed relations with her mother.
