About Me

Rosanne Wong is one of the most versatile and dynamic young artistes to emerge from Asia in recent years. Known for her exciting yet sensitive acting and singing performances on stage, film and television, Rosanne can brighten up any occasion with her exuberance and charm, and is in regular demand for guest appearances at gala functions and on television and radio.

Born in a small fishing village in the state of Terengganu, along the north east coast of Malaysia, Rosanne had a simple childhood, where community gatherings and views of the sea and unspoiled stretches of sand took the place of television, cinema and playstations. Such humble beginnings have given Rosanne a deep appreciation for nature and friendships, themes that often inspire her song writing today.

At the age of 10, Rosanne moved to Singapore with her family, and she still calls the city home, even after moving to Australia for her undergraduate degree in Commerce at The University of Curtin, Perth, and having lived in Hong Kong for the past 6 years.

It was during her university life that Rosanne first took to the stage and found a natural talent in acting and singing. Thirsting for a greater adventure and challenge after graduation, Rosanne embarked on a career in entertainment with her younger sister, Race, in Hong Kong. Soon after their arrival, in 2002, they formed the pop group “2R”, which immediately took the local music industry by storm.

In their first year, 2R racked up numerous awards, including the prestigious TVB Most Popular Group Gold Award, TVB Top 10 Songs of the Year Awards, TVB Award for The Best Newcomer. Best New Group Bronze Award - Hong Kong Commercial Radio Music Awards', Most Promising Newcomer (Group) - 26th Annual Top 10 Song of the Year Awards' and Most Explosive Newcomer (Group) - Metro Broadcasting Music Awards'. 2R has recorded many albums including-

2R New + Best Selection (2006),
2R Revolution (2005),
United 2R (2004) and
Two of Us AVEP (2003)

2R has altogether recorded four albums with pop songs and ballads in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, and the sisters continue to win critical acclaim and enjoy a busy schedule of engagements, performances and concerts.

Such recognition so early on in Rosanne’s career encouraged her to pursue her keen interest in acting. Rosanne’s captivating Asian features, coupled with her ability to speak four languages fluently (English, Mandarin, Cantonese and Hokkian), have given her the platform to excel on both the stage and the silver screen. Rosanne has played different characters in both TV and movies. TV appearances include-

“Feel 100%” Now.com Online Series (HK, 2002),
“If The Moon Has Eyes” TV Series(China, 2005),
“The Rainbow Connection” (Singapore, 2005),
“2R Blog” (CETV TV Show, 2006).

She starred in the award-winning movie
“Ab-Normal Beauty” (2004),
“The Next Top Queen” (2005) and the popular
“Love is Many Stupid Thing”(2003),
which allowed her to work with renowned actors.

Most recently, spurred on by her eagerness to explore new challenges, Rosanne appeared bald as the lead actress in the award-winning dance musical The Smiling Proud Wanderer by Jing Yong (Louis Cha) in collaboration with the Hong Kong Dance Company in 2006-2007. Albeit her first time in a musical, Rosanne gave an inspiring and confident performance at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, and her convincing and moving rendition of the song The Smiling Proud Wanderer won international rave reviews.

By popular demand, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre hosted extra performances and they were invited to perform at the world-renowned Shanghai Grand Theatre in 2007, where Rosanne had to perform in Mandarin as well as Cantonese, an achievement by no means easy for any established actress. Her flawless and critically acclaimed performance confirmed her position as a prominent young star with both artistic and technical versatility.

Rosanne’s heartwarming personality, multifaceted talents and cosmopolitan background have also given her the opportunity to star in recent advertisement campaigns of major international companies like Biotherm, IBM, Carlsberg, SAFA MP3 and Microworks.

In addition to contributing to the continued success of 2R, Rosanne plans to develop her acting repertoire in the near future, concentrating on television dramas. Planned ventures include developing her dancing in Korea as well as acting in a television series in Shanghai.

In her spare time, Rosanne enjoys cooking, traveling, and sports. A proud supporter of ORBIS and UNICEF, she dedicates time to help strive to eliminate avoidable blindness in mainland China as well as promoting child survival and development in the Tsunami struck areas of Asia.
