A HK Icon. This Taiwanese actress dominates the screen like very few actors ever. Her every scowl, glare or teasing smile is like a bolt of electricity. During the 1980's & 90's she was cast in a number of fabulous fantasy themed films in which she displayed enormous magical powers - sometimes on the side of good; sometimes not. In her classic film Swordsman II she plays an evil sexually ambiguous tyrant, yet you can't help but be hypnotized by her magnetic screen presence.

After her marriage to a Hong Kong businessman, Brigitte retired from the film business. There are rumors from time to time about a possible return, but she appears to be very happy being a mother and wife. We can only hope that she is offered a film worthy of her comeback.

Here is an interesting if slightly academic article on Brigitte that was published in Film Comment in 1996.
