Early life[edit]

In 2003, Chung won the title of Miss Chinese Vancouver,[4] along with three awards in the same event, giving her the chance to participate in the Miss Chinese International Pageant 2004 hosted in Hong Kong, where she also won.

Career[edit]

TV career[edit]

2004–05: Entry and initial success[edit]

After winning the Miss Chinese International Pageant, Chung was signed under TVB. Chung made her acting debut in the series Virtues of Harmony II, the modern spin-off of the sitcom, Virtues of Harmony. Her performance was somewhat popular in the year, garnering positive reviews from the public.[6][7][8][9] She was nominated the "Most Improved Female Actress Award" in 2004's TVB Anniversary Awards for the first time.[10] Chung also took in several advertisements and music videos within the first year of her entering the industry. This initial success led TVB to name her one of the "Twelve New Stars" of the industry. Other industry professionals also gave praise to Chung during this initial period such as Nancy Sit,[11] Frankie Lam,[12] Kara Hui, Shawn Yue,[13] Chen Kun, Kent Cheng,[14] Sammy Leung,[15] Wong He,[16][17] Joey Leung and Erica Yuen.[18]

2006–08: Breakthrough and Entry to the Music Scene[edit]

In 2006, after starring in Always Ready, The Biter Bitten and Forensic Heroes Chung won her first major award as Most Improved Female Actress.[19] Her role in Always Ready and Forensic Heroes also garnered her a nomination for "Best Actress" and "My Most Favourite Female Character Role" for the first time, affirming her position as one of the more celebrated actress in Hong Kong.

Chung's breakthrough row came in 2007, where she played the character of Sheung Joy Sum (meaning, always at heart) in the most popular series of that year, Heart of Greed.[20] Chung received much praise from audiences and several famous people.[21][22][23][24] This role gave her a nomination for "Best Actress"[25] and "My Most Favourite Female Character Role"[26] for the second year in a row.

Chung teamed up with Steven Ma again for A Journey Called Life, which received positive feedback among the public and industry professionals.[27] She also starred in the non-related sequel to Heart of Greed, the series Moonlight Resonance. This time, she was finally partnered up with Raymond Lam, as he tragically died in the previous series. During one of the final scenes, the series garnered a 50-point rating (50% of the viewing population, or around 3 million people), making it the most-watched scene in all TVB series to date. Chung was also received praise from Ha Yu,[28] Michelle Yim and Lee Heung-kam when she was acting this role.

Since 2006, Chung has been sporadically participating in the music scene, singing theme songs for Legends of Demigods, Best Bet, A Journey Called Life, A Watchdog's Tale and the subtheme for Heart of Greed.[29] She also sang the Cantonese theme song for the anime The Story of Saiunkoku.[30] In 2008, Chung officially signed with Star Entertainment (mother company of Stars Shine International) and subsequently launched her first album, Dinner for One, World for Two, which was certified gold.[31] In the same year, she was awarded silver in the "Best Newcomers" category at the Jade Solid Gold Best Ten Music Awards.

2009–12: Yes, Sir. Sorry, Sir! and Love Love Love[edit]

Chung's acting in the River of Wine of 2010 positioned her solidly as one of the top actresses in Hong Kong, in line with Myolie Wu, Kate Tsui and Fala Chen.[32] However, it was in one single scene of Yes, Sir. Sorry, Sir! in 2011 where Chung garnered intense praise from the public. Her character, "Miss Koo" (A play on Miss Cool), was portrayed as a cold, still young lady with an iron heart. In that particular scene in which she discovered her counterpart, Moses Chan playing the character Sir Law, wasn't what she thought he was, a slow but dramatic breakdown occurred. It has been paralleled to Charmaine Sheh's performance in Return of the Cuckoo, and it left a deep impression as one of the best scenes of recent history. In fact, there was enough praise that the major newspapers reported the above matter at the same time.[33][34] On the whole, Chung received full of praise and Miss Koo is one of the representative work for Linda Chung.[35]

Hyped built up around the possibility of finally landing a Best Actress award at the TVB Anniversary Awards that year, with several artists backing Chung publicly.[36][37][38][39] However, both the "Best Actress" and "Most Favourite Female Character Role" went to Myolie Wu for her performance in Ghetto Justice. TVB was criticized later as the actual results of the online voting actually indicated that Chung was the rightful winner of the "Most Favourite Female Character Role" award.[40] Fans were also outraged that she left the Awards empty handed.[41]

Chung filmed "L'Escargot" in 2010 and it was finally aired in 2012. Her character was involved in a complicated love triangle with Michael Tse and Ron Ng's characters. She herself spoke about the many new challenges she faced while portraying her character. Generally, part of the public was impressed by her vivid acting in this TV series but there are also part of the netizens that criticized her .[42] In addition, her relation line with Tse has gained her more public exposure and was the topic of popular discussion.

On 19 March 2012, her new series Daddy Good Deeds aired and her character Ko Yu-chu spread fun to the public. She and Steven Ma collaborated five times in TVB, was a terrific couple on screen. Her third series House of Harmony and Vengeance was aired on TVB from 30 Apr to 8 Jun 2012, portraying her as an ancient version of Ms Cool.

Her fourth series Witness Insecurity was aired from 2 to 27 July 2012, making her the actress with the highest exposure rate for the first half of the year, having four series already out and probably nothing left for the rest of the year. Many viewers criticized about the way TVB was showing her series were too close to one another. However, Witness Insecurity garnered high TVB viewership ratings, which turned out to be unexpected by TVB. On the ending note, the sad ending for this series also received a huge outcry from viewers, mostly reflected they preferred a good ending and requested for a re-make of the ending.

2013: In the works[edit]

Chung starred in one of 2013's grand productions for TVB – Brother's Keeper, co-starring with Ruco Chan. She acted as a fashion designer Rachel Cheuk. The series spans from 1991 to 2013.

Other information[edit]

Whilst filming Heart of Greed in 2006, rumours about Chung and her famous co-star, Raymond Lam, erupted citing that Lam was "chasing" after rising fa-dan Chung. The rumour mill has continued to roll, with queries about whether they are really dating or have dated still arising until Lam's girlfriend (now ex-girlfriend) was exposed via intimate photos accidentally shared on Sina Weibo, a common social networking site used by Asian celebrities.

The rumour mill about Chung and her friend Philip Ng has continued to roll, with the media even going so far as to say that they have been dating since 2007. Next Publishing, a media company published some photos, showing Philip with his arm around Chung at a party at which Nicholas Tse and Cecilia Cheung were both present at. Chung and Ng have maintained that they are good friends, but have not confirmed their relationship, with both saying that they would prefer to keep that part of their life low-key. However, it was reported that TVB, the company Chung is signed to was putting pressure on her and keen to separate the two. This claim has been denied by Chung.
