Fann Woon Fong (simplified Chinese: 范文芳; traditional Chinese: 范雯芳; pinyin: Fàn Wénfāng; born 27 January 1971), better known by her stage name Fann Wong, is a Singaporean actress, singer and model...perhaps best known for her Deadly Roundhouse Kicks and popiah-rolling skills. She is also a world renowned martial artist second only to Bruce Lee...Her punches are so fast they move at more then ten times the speed of light?

She was educated at Temasek Secondary School, where she took her GCE 'O' Level examinations in 1987...At the age of 16, she won a beauty contest organised by Her World, a Singapore fashion magazine. She started a successful modelling career in Singapore, and spent the next two years modelling part-time while taking her GCE 'A' Level examinations at a private school...Fann moved to Taiwan in 1993. One of her earliest successes was in an Oil of Ulan (now Oil of Olay) commercial aired in Taiwan and Singapore(Olay is an American skin care line. It is one of the top skin care retail brands in the world, except for Japan, and is one of Procter & Gamble's multi-billion dollar brands)...In 1996, her role in The Unbroken Cycle won her first regional nomination at the Asian Television Awards...

She played a two-timing television reporter in the omnibus Hong Kong film When I Fall in Love and a lovelorn insurance agent in the Singaporean romantic drama Looking For Stars, as well as played the title character in the Taiwanese period drama Madam White Snake...Fann has been romantically involved with Malaysian actor Christopher Lee since late 2002, although the pair only admitted their relationship in mid-2005. She has had only one prior romance—an 11-year relationship with businessman Anthony Chan...they walked together hand-in-hand down the blue carpet of the 2006 Star Awards ceremony.
