Carman Lee Yeuk-tung (Chinese: 李若彤; born August 16, 1973) is a Hong Kong actress who has appeared in films such as The Wicked City (1992), Loving You (1995), The Odd One Lives (1997), and the North American Knock Off (1998) with Jean-Claude Van Damme. She is best known for her role as Xiaolongnü in the 1995 TV series adaptation of Louis Cha's Wuxia novel The Return of the Condor Heroes.

Early life[edit]

Lee came from a big family of ten children, with her being the seventh child. To help her parents feed the family when she was a child, she and her siblings used to make and sell handicrafts. Out of her parents' 10 children, Lee was known to be the only one to possess a different look since her childhood with a Eurasian-like face, creating rumors that she wasn't her parents' biological daughter. The rumors were untrue but it did give Lee a low self-esteem about her origins then and even made her suicidal on that matter once.[citation needed]

Lee once worked as an air-stewardess before entering the entertainment industry.
