Now, what is it with former celebs and their ability to look impossibly youthful? First, we had Michelle Reis, and now, we have former TVB actress Melissa Ng (吴美珩), who just turned 50 last month.
Melissa joined showbiz in 1996 after a stellar run in the Miss Chinese International pageant the same year.
She quickly rose to fame, and played a number of iconic roles in the early 2000s, including Concubine Mui in 2000’s The Legend of Lady Yang, Keung Sam Yuet in 2002’s A Herbalist Affair, and Consort Yu in 2004’s The Conqueror’s Story.
Her role as Ko Chi Ling in 2006’s La Femme Desparado was particularly well-liked. The drama eventually won the TVB Anniversary Award for Best Series that year.
