Priscilla Wong (born 23 October 1981) is a Hong Kong television actress and host, currently under TVB management.[1] Wong is a devoted Christian. She speaks Cantonese, Mandarin and English.

Wong made her debut in 2003 anchoring i-Cable entertainment news program before signing with TVB in 2012 as an actress.

Biography[edit]

Wong was born the second oldest of five girls. She grew up in a family where money was tight. Her father worked as a fish monger while her mother was a homemaker.[2] She graduated from Pentecostal Lam Hon Kwong middle school in 2000.

Wong later attended and graduated from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2003, majoring in communications and public relations. During University Wong took an internship at i-Cable and was later offered a full-time job as a host when she graduated from university.[3]

Career[edit]

Hosting[edit]

Wong was discovered while she was in Secondary School at the age of 17 by Sandy Yu who was then an artiste management exec and later became a top TVB drama production executive. Signed under management by Sundream Motion Pictures she did not fully start her career in the entertainment industry until after graduating from university. Wong worked as an anchor for travelogue programs and entertainment news reporter for i-Cable. She was dubbed as "Stephen Chow’s personal host.", due to her easy access to interview the legendary comic actor.[4]

In 2010 Wong left i-Cable for Now TV, only to return one year later.

Acting[edit]

In 2008, Wong starred opposite Dicky Cheung in Sundream’s 2008 film The Champions (奪標), and earned critical praise for her performance.[4] She also had some previous acting experience from the film Love Dog Doc (妙狗仁心) [4]

In 2012, Wong signed with Hong Kong television station TVB as an actor. Her move to TVB proved successful as she gained a recognition as an actress and in 2014 Won the "Most Improved Female Artiste award".[5]

Personal life[edit]

In 2014 Priscilla Wong and Edwin Siu started dating after Madam Cutie On Duty finished filming. The two became close after filming the drama in which they played undercover police officers posing as husband and wife.
