Brief Bio: Veronica Yip Yuk Hing (葉玉卿) was born in Hong Kong on 12 February 1967. She is 165 cm tall and was the 2nd runner-up in the 1985 Miss Asia beauty pageant. She was a popular singer in Hong Kong in the early ’90s. She released seven albums between 1992-1995 and received two Best New Artist gold awards at the 1992 RTHK Top 10 Gold Songs Awards and 1992 Jade Solid Gold Best Ten Music Awards Presentation. She also had a successful film career. Don Marion, in his IMDb mini-bio for Veronica, says, “Although more acclaimed as a vocalist than an actress, Yip gave several fine performances in successful films, such as her role as the frigid and neglected wife in Stanley Kwan’s Hong meigui, bai meigui (1994).” She also starred in Jeffrey Lau’s The Eagle Shooting Heroes. Veronica married Chinese-American businessman Jeffrey Wu (胡兆明) in 1996, retired from entertainment, and moved to the U.S. They have a daughter and two sons and currently reside on Long Island.
