In racehorses and dazzling young socialites, breeding is everything. Gem-quality debutante China Chow comes equipped with an impeccable pedigree. The exquisite, almond-eyed beauty has Michael Chow, the master chef behind the world-renowned Mr. Chow’s restaurants, as a dad. Sweetly simmering China’s mom was played by model/designer Tina Chow, a haunting beauty who helped bring in the era of the supermodel during the 1970s. That rare combination of taste, style, and substance, China earned a college degree in psychology before launching a modeling career that made her the face of Shiseido cosmetics in Japan. Nothing is finer than China’s acting debut in The Big Hit (1998) as the prototypical Asian schoolgirl who harbors a see-through bra beneath her school uniform.
