Born in Hong Kong of Welsh, Chinese and Persian descent, Karen Mok is an actress and singer who has enjoyed phenomenal success in Asia since making her debut in 1993.

A winner of the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award, Karen, who speaks five languages (English, Cantonese, Mandarin, French and Italian), also won a two-year scholarship to complete her secondary studies at the United World College in Italy. She then went on to read Italian Literature at London University before returning to Hong Kong to embark on a career in entertainment.

Internationally recognized, the award-winning actress has appeared in nearly 40 films including SHAOLIN SOCCER, one of the highest-grossing films in Hong Kong's history, FALLEN ANGELS, for which she was honored with a Hong Kong Film Award for Best Supporting Actress, and Disney's AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS with Jackie Chan.

In addition, Mok is an accomplished recording artist, with 12 albums released to date.
