Angela Tong, born 30 June 1975 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada with family roots in Shunde, Guangdong, China, is a Hong Kong actress and was Miss Chinese Montreal 1995. Angela was educated in Concordia University.

Pageant life[edit]

After winning the 12th place in Miss Chinese Los Angeles Pageant in 1994, she represented Los Angeles to compete in the Miss Chinese International Pageant 1995. Although she only reached the Top 12 in the pageant, she was approached by TVB with an acting contract.[1]

Acting career[edit]

Angela has been in numerous TVB dramas since 1995, but mostly supporting roles and is mostly cast as a showgirl or "the other woman". After waiting for 10 years, her big break finally came with the TVB series "Life Made Simple (阿旺新傳)" playing the physically unattractive girl with a heart of gold and a wonderful singing voice called "Lee Siu Ho (李笑好)".

The role won her critical acclaim, winning the Best Supporting Actress award at the TVB 37th Anniversary Awards in November 2005.

Her portrayal of Lee Siu Ho was so popular that TVB composed a primetime special called "Ho Is Beside You (好在你左右)" as well as the 12-episode variety program "Always Smiling (笑口常開)", both with Angela hosting in character as Lee Siu Ho.

Personal life[edit]

Ting married Chin Ka-lok, who she had been dating for five years, on 13 November 2012, the two becoming the first couple to marry in Ocean Park's panda enclosure. They held a wedding banquet on the 15th, an event attended by many co-stars and colleagues of Hong Kong's entertainment industry. Tong has two daughters, Alyssa and Kassidy.
