Maggie Cheung Man Yuk was born on 20 September 1964 and emigrated to England with her family when she was eight. At the age of seventeen, she visited Hong Kong and caught the attention of a talent scout which led to first TV commercial appearence. She then became a model. In 1983, she came in second at the Miss Hong Kong Beauty Contest organized by the television Broadcasts Limited and thereafter her showbiz career began.
Maggie made her TV debut in the drama series "Police Cadet 1984" together with Tony Leung Chiu Wai and won her popularity. She stepped onto the silver screen after the expiry of her contract with TVB. She made her first movie appearence in "Prince Charming". After all these years, Maggie had starred in more than 60 movies and got lots of film awards. In "Full Moon in New York", "A Fishy Story" and "Center Stage", Maggie won her best actress accolades in Golden Horse Film Award, Hong Kong Film Award and Berlin Film Festival respectively. In recent years, her well-honed acting skill gained recognition from international directors and was invited to star in foreign films such as the French movie "Irma Vep".

She does not deliberately pick up those artistic or solemn movies. Maggie thinks that movies of any subject can be filmed if the screenplay is sensible, even crazy comedy is possible. The most important is that artists can exhibit their potential. It should not be a film that embarrasses her. It is crucial for her to enjoy the filming process and a harmonious working relationship during the production period can also be a very good experience. Maggie had numerous unusual adventures and finally she figured out a balance point between career, romance, living and family. All these go hand-in-hand practically and cheery. In this era, it is doubted how many people can break through from the net of fame and romance. In a generation full of enticement and illusions, what will be more important than one realizes to treasure oneself.
Beauty and diverse appeal are influential elements for Maggie's succes but her refines performing skill plays the dominant role. She acts vividly in all kinds of character and leaves an ingrained memory in the audiences. In "Conjugal Affairs", "The Soong Sisters" and "Comrades, Almost A Love Story", all had differrent theme and style but they did not bring any difficulty to Maggie. She won the Best Actress Award at the 17th Hong Kong Film Award in "Comarades, Almost, A Love Story".

At present, Maggie always stays overseas and sometimes stars in TV commercials. In "Chinese Box", a movie recently shown in Hong Kong, Maggie was cast as a girl with deformed features. (Universe Laser & Video Co. Ltd.)
