  Born in Hong Kong to British and Chinese parents, Karen Mok was educated in London and Italy. She entered in the entertainment industry as a singer, and later made her film debut in comedian Stephen Chiau's retelling of the Chinese classic "Journey to the West", "A Chinese Odyssey". She was cast in Wong Kar-Wai's "Fallen Angels" for which she won the Best Supporting Actress at the Hong Kong Film Awards.

From the DVD release of "A Chinese Odyssey Part I".

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 the field of music, Karen has a habit of making history: she was the first female artist from Hong Kong to win Taiwan's prestigious Golden Melody Award (equivalent to the Grammy Award in the Mandarin music market) and the first Asian star to take the lead role in the Broadway hit musical "RENT" on its 10th Anniversary World Tour. In addition, Mok is an accomplished recording artist, with 12 albums released to date.
