Twins (Charlene Choi & Gillian Chung)

A multiple-award winning CantoPop singing duo, The Twins (Charlene Choi & Gillian Chung) are also a pair of gifted actresses who have done numerous films both separately and together. (Curiously, they don't sing in movies where they appear together!)
Besides their singing and acting talents, both women are capable action heroines, doing convincing fight scenes with panache and style.

They've starred in a trilogy of "official" Twins films, playing different characters in each one.
In addition, each flick is a different genre (Vampire / horror, historical fantasy, contemporary action) with a heavy emphasis on martial arts action!

The duo split in 2008 after a scandal involving nude photos of Gillian and actor Edison Chen, with Charlene going solo.
The pair reunited for several live concerts in Hong Kong earlier this year, with a new tour under discussion.

Trivia: The Twins are the advertising spokesmodels for the MicroSoft XBox 360 game in Asia!
