Birthdate : 4/5/1958

Beginning her career in Taiwanese film, she was initially groomed to be the successor to Brigitte Lin in the Taiwanese melodramatic weepie market. By the end of the 70’s Brigitte was of course getting older and a love scandal had made her future in this type of Taiwanese film somewhat questionable. With Sibelle’s debut in A Special Smile (1979) and appearances in a few other films – The Coldest Winter in Peking (in which her co-star was Brigitte’s oft teamed co-star and one time fiance Charlie Chin) and the prostitute drama A Flower in a Storm – Sibelle gained enormous popularity. A Special Smile broke box office records for a Taiwanese film in Hong Kong. At the same time she was able to graduate with a history degree in 1981. The days of the Taiwanese weepie were coming to an end though – and within a few years Taiwanese film would almost completely surrender to the onslaught of film from Hong Kong. Like Brigitte Lin before her, Sibelle turned to Hong Kong to further her career. In 1985 she was invited to be the “dish” in My Lucky Stars. In this Sammo Hung produced series every film had a beautiful female who was the object of desire of the bumbling juvenile men in the cast. The film was a huge hit and Sibelle became a major star in Hong Kong. She also got away from her weepie image and got caught up in the hijinks and the action of the film. She had a classical confrontation with Michiko Nishawaki that was to some degree to foretell the rest of her career. From this point on Sibelle became for better or worse a female action star and was an integral part of the “girls with guns” genre. The problem was of course that she had no training for this sort of thing and many of her action scenes felt less than authentic or graceful (at least compared to the other “GwG” stars). She was also doubled extensively in some of the action scenes. Nevertheless, her good looks and solid acting skills made her very popular. Though these films rarely called for stellar acting, in one of her few dramatic performances of the late 80’s as the frantic mother in Inspector Chocolate she showed what a good actress she could be. She did get a plum role in 1993 as Michelle Reis’s mother in Fong Sai Yuk in which she had a classic match up against Jet Li and Josephine Siao (who played Jet Li’s mother in the movie). In the late 1990’s Sibelle retired, got married and recently (2000) had her first child. Her husband is a wealthy businessman.
