16 years with TVB
Mandy made her showbiz debut in 2007, following her participation in the Miss Hong Kong pageant that year.
In her 16 years at TVB, she played many memorable characters in Hong Kong TV dramas, including kind-hearted doctor Chong Tsz-yeuk in The Exorcist's Meter, a barrister with dissociative identity disorder in Threesome and custom officer Yan Kwan in The Line Watchers.
Between 2008 and 2021, Mandy acted in more than 30 drama series and was nominated for Best Actress award seven times, but she never clinched the title.
Over the past two years, she only appeared in Secret Door which was aired in May.
