Joey Meng Yee-man (born 2 October 1970) is a Hong Kong actress, model, and beauty spokesperson. She originally worked for ATV, but later moved over to TVB.

Life & Career[edit]

Joey participated in the 1989 Miss Asia [1] Pageant and emerged as first runner-up. She joined Hong Kong television station ATV on a contract that year. Meng is best known for her role as "Ma Siu-ling" in the My Date with a Vampire television series trilogy. In August 2000, she married Chan Sap-sam (the screenwriter of the My Date with a Vampire trilogy) in the United States after dating for about four months.

By 2012, after over twenty years working with ATV, Joey didn't renew her contract and transferred over to ATV's competitor, TVB. Her first television drama was Inbound Troubles, which is 2013's highest-rated television drama for the first half of the year. By February 2015, Joey completed her contract with TVB and decided not to renew for some personal time away; she recently decided to work with TVB on a per-series basis to give herself the time and freedom to choose between projects and balance personal life.[2] [3]
