MAN OF TAI CHI
Hong Kong born KAREN MOK ("Jing-Si") was educated in London and Italy, a testament to her international lineage (she is part Persian, German, Welsh, and Chinese). A musical artist and stage performer as well as screen actor, she is perhaps best known for her work in Wong Kar Wai's acclaimed FALLEN ANGELS, for which she received the Hong Kong Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her other credits include BLACK MASK with Jet Li; AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS with Jackie Chan and Steve Coogan; and the Stephen Chow comedies THE GOD OF COOKEY, THE KING OF COMEDY and SHAOLIN SOCCER. As a musician, she was the first woman from Hong Kong to receive Golden Melody Award (Taiwan's Grammy) and the first Asian star to perform as a lead in a Broadway production when she was cast in the 10th Anniversary World Tour of "Rent." In addition to releasing fifteen albums, Mok is also a well-known model and spokesperson, serving as ambassador for UNICEF, SPCA and Habitat for Humanity (among others), as well as performing as a torch-bearer and performer at the 2008 Beijing Olympic opening and closing ceremonies.
