HistoryDuring her study on university she accepted a modelling assignment from a watch company named City Chain and it was this commercial who caught the attention of film director Lee Chi Ngai who cast her in her very first movie (1995), Doctor Mack 《流氓醫生》 starring Tony Leung. The success of the movie brought her a further role in Sixty Million Dollar Man 《百變星君》 starring Stephen Chow which lead her to have another role in Full Throttle 《烈火戰車》 starring Andy Lau and it was this movie she got nominated for Best Newcomer at the Fifteenth Session Of The Hong Kong Film Awards《第十五屆香港電影金像獎》 year 1995.
Entertainment careerShort hair combine with youthfulness and the image like the girl next door is Gigi's image and this was unusual back then and her short hair have been an icon for her since then. Gigi's singing career began in 1996 with her first cantonese debut album Love Myself 《愛自己》(1996) and she was soon loved by Hong Kong and got the best newcomer singer award on TVB JSG 《勁歌金曲》(1996). In 1997 she released her first mandarin debut album Short Hair 《短髮》 (1997) and it turned out to be a big success and it was from this year her popularity rise in both mainland china and Taiwan.
But in 1999 after Gigi had taken part in a musical starring Ekin Cheng, Miriam Yeung and Jordan Chan, she and Ekin developed some feelings for each other and started to date but back then Ekin hadn't publicated the breakup with his girlfriend Maggie Siu which lead for Gigi to be regared as the "third part" and this had a negative impact in her career and leads to a down hill for her career.
However Gigi managed the drought and succeded to have her first own full-scale live concert in 2002 《G for Girl Live 2002》
