“˜Mr. & Mrs. Incredible’ and Sandra Ng
Sandra Ng is one of Hong Kong’s most successful comic actresses with a film career that has spanned 30 years and more than 100 films.
She’s a veteran of numerous Chinese New Year comedies, including most of the “All’s Well Ends Well” series that made its debut in 1992.
This year she appears in two comedies opening around the Lunar New Year, including “Mr. & Mrs. Incredible,” a US$7.5-million action film about a super-hero couple forced out of retirement to battle an evil adversary.
The 45-year-old Hong Kong actress has often been cast as unattractive but vivacious women in slapstick comedies, but over the years she has occasionally tried to break out of her comedic characters with varying degrees of success. One of her first dramatic films was “Four Faces of Eve” from 1996, but audiences didn’t warm to it and it flopped at the box office. She later found greater success in two films where she played against type.
