Early years[edit]

In her schooling days, Myolie received high school education in Boarding School at Methodist College Belfast, Northern Ireland. She later returned to Hong Kong and attended the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, majoring in Biochemistry.

During her first year in university, Myolie took part the Miss Hong Kong pageant in 1999 and clinched second runner-up. Shortly afterward, she signed on to TVB as a full-time contracted artiste and withdrew from school.

Acting career[edit]

In her early years, Myolie started out as supporting characters in television serials. Her acting began to gain recognition through her breakthrough performance in Golden Faith, in which she portrayed the mentally challenged younger sister of Gallen Lo.[1] Her role was well received by the audience and she was awarded the Most Improved Female Artiste Award at the 2002 TVB Anniversary Awards.[2]

Myolie was offered her first lead role in Survivor's Law in 2003.[3] In the same year, she also starred in the classic TVB drama Triumph in the Skies alongside veteran actors Francis Ng and Flora Chan.[4] Both series received high viewership ratings and Myolie soon rose to popularity.

In 2005, TVB aired five drama serials in which Myolie was lead actress. She received further acknowledgement for her acting in the hit series Wars of In-Laws where she played the shrewd daughter in-law of Liza Wang. The same serial was also what sparked her ongoing rumours with co-star Bosco Wong.[5]

Despite widespread criticism, Myolie gained major weight for her role as an overweight woman in the 2006 television series To Grow With Love. Through her role, she was awarded "Best Comedy Performance by an Actress" at the Asian Television Award, making her the first Hong Kong artiste to win an award at the prestigious ceremony.

In 2007, Myolie was paired with Mainland actor Feng Shao Feng in the TVB-CCTV joint production The Drive Of Life. The couple was well received by fans. She also starred as Chow Lai-Man in the second installment of War of In-Laws, Wars of In-Laws II in same year.

Myolie took another step in her acting career in 2009 by filming her first Mainland drama Beauty's Rival in Palace, in which she guest-starred in for five episodes and was once again paired with Feng Shao Feng. The drama achieved a high viewership rating and her performance was well-praised. She continued to film her second Mainland series Happy Mother-in-law, Pretty Daughter-in-law as lead actress the same year and gained widespread popularity in Mainland China.

She also filmed her third Mainland drama Racecourse alongside boyfriend Bosco Wong in late 2010. The series was their third collaboration portraying a couple.

In 2011, Myolie starred in TVB dramas The Rippling Blossom, Ghetto Justice, and Curse of the Royal Harem and all three series were listed as Top 5 in viewership ratings of the year. She was crowned "TV Queen" at the 2011 TVB Anniversary Awards after being awarded Best Actress in a Leading Role for her role in Curse of the Royal Harem and My Favorite Female Character for her role in Ghetto Justice. She was also voted by the audience as the Most Extraordinary Elegant Actress (Bosco Wong won the male equivalent) during the awards, making her the first ever TVB actress to win 3 awards at the same award ceremony.

Music career[edit]

Myolie took the first step in her singing career through singing the theme song for her television series War and Destiny in 2007.

She then signed on to the music label Neway Star in 2008 and released her first EP entitled Evolve. In 2009, she released her second EP Loveholic and held her first solo mini-concert. The concert version Liveholic of her EP Loveholic was then released in early 2010.

Myolie continues to sing theme songs for TVB's television series.

Personal life[edit]

In 2012, Myolie ended her 8-year relationship with her ex-boyfriend Bosco Wong.[6] Reflecting on it, Myolie stated: “Falling in love is up to fate. We tried our best and gave our best, but there’s nothing we can do if our ending doesn’t turn out to be what we predicted. I can only say that we were not fated to be”.[7]
