Margaret Denise Quigley

An American who went to Japan and then to Hong Kong to became a supermodel, Maggie Q caught the eyes of HK movie producers who cast her despite the fact that she didn't speak any Chinese at the time! (She's since learned both Cantonese and Mandarin.)
She still models, but tv and films are now her priority. In fact, she's starring in a new tv series; Nikita!
Most of her film roles are action-oriented, but she's also performed in romances, dramas, and comedies.
