Biography
 
  Shum was born in July, 1947 into a well-off large family in Shanghai and ranked the fifth among the family's eight children. She made her film debut in 1960, joined the Hong Kong-based Shaw Brothers, a famous film company, as a child actress and rose to stardom with the free-to-air television broadcaster TVB's variety show Enjoy Yourself Tonight, which was hugely popular in Hong Kong for over 20 years. With her signature smile, dark-rimmed glasses and comic hairstyle, Shum established herself as a comic and dramatic actress. Her successful career spanning almost half a century also included the role as a TV hostess. Shum married Hong Kong actor and singer Adam Cheng in 1985 after they lived together for years. The two split up in 1987, only eight months after their daughter and only child Joyce was born. (english.cri.cn)

Lydia was born in 1945 in Shanghai, China. However, many media reports cite 1947 as year of birth for Lydia.

Brother is the fashion designer Alfred Sung.

The actress and talk-show host was born on June 1, 1945, according to an obituary written by Hong Kong's TVB station, where Shum worked for decades, although there are two other versions of her birth date.
