To UK viewers: Check out Katie Leung (梁佩詩) on Channel 4 tonight! Katie, of Harry Potter fame, is starring in the four-part drama Run, detailing the lives of four unconnected people - or so it seems. Katie plays Ying, an illegal immigrant from Fujian province trying to make a life in Brixton, London.
Katie hails from Motherwell, Scotland. Her father is from Hong Kong. She got her big break in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cho Chang, a student at Hogwarts. Since then, she has starred in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (the one where she gets to kiss Harry!), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2. Katie went on to star in ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot: Cat among the Pigeons and Wild Swans - a theatre production detailing the life of Jung Chang ( 張戎), a British Chinese Writer. Katie was also cast by Gold Label Records in the music video Love Coming Home (愛回家) by Leo Ku - who described Katie's acting as professional and mature.
加油 Katie! We look forward to seeing more of you in the future!
