10 Ageless Beauties in TVB Dramas

While TVB is known for recruiting fresh blood from Miss Hong Kong pageants and filling their station with younger artistes, fans still admire the older actresses whose grace and beauty have not decreased with age. Recently, an online poll was created to rank the list of former and current TVB actresses who still look stunning for their age. The results are as follows:

1.Alice Chan (陳煒) – 44 years old
Having previously worked at ATV, Alice instantly became a favorite among viewers after coming to TVB. Besides playing versatile roles, fans complimented the actress’ insanely good looks at 44. After her performance in this year’s Deep in the Realm of Conscience <宮心計2深宮計>, Alice is a hot favorite for Best Actress at the upcoming TVB Anniversary Awards.

2.Griselda Yeung (楊卓娜) – 41 years old
When Griselda joined Miss Hong Kong 2001, she was mainly known as Tavia Yeung’s (楊怡) older sister. Come Home Love <愛‧回家> finally brought Griselda recognition after working in the industry for over a decade. Proving that age is nothing but a number, Griselda still looks stunning at 41.

3.Claire Yiu (姚嘉妮) – 40 years old
Although she has taken more time off to take care of her children, Claire still makes an appearance on TV from time to time. Her most recent role as the sassy caretaker in Who Wants a Baby? <BB來了>, drew a great amount of attention as the 40-year-old showed off her fit physique.

5.Joey Meng (萬綺雯) – 48 years old
While she possesses a pair of 42-inch legs, Joey’s baby face enables her to look young even though the actress is almost 50-years-old. Having taken part in Inbound Troubles <老表,你好野> as her first TVB drama in 2013, many netizens complimented the actress on her youthful look.

  1. agree with this list. and may ng, wow! she does not look her age at all. don’t think it’s natural lol.

    1. @coralie Probably botox, injections etc… but, considering how celebrities all have equal/easy access to these procedures, I suppose the ones who stand out and sustain good results are still worthy of some praise? lol

  2. What about Irene Wan? Ada Choi? Candy Law Lam? Michelle Yim? Joyce Tang? Lee Shan Shan? Florence Kwok? Athena Chu? Flora Chan? Shirley Yeung? Irene Wang? Sharen Tang? Vivian Chow? Elena Kong? Alvina Kong? I think they looked good too for their age.

    1. @cutie777 Agree with the list above, and I agree with your list as well. I would like to also add Noel Leung! she looks amazing still!

  3. May Ng Yue Fong is just unreal. The only one that who aged from above although she is supposed to be the oldest of the lot. I don’t think she was in ‘The Final Verdict’ though…..

    1. @jimmyszeto Yea, wrong series. Whoever wrote the article was probably thinking about Eugenia Lau (who also looks fantastic). But May Ng does look stunning still for her age..if I remember correctly, she was also Miss Photogenic during her MHK year and to be honest, she doesn’t look that much older from that time.

  4. these ladies indeed age a lot better than most ladies their age. i think it mostly has to be with their slender build and of course make-up to hide some minor signs of aging. if they were a little beefier they’d age at least 10 years.

  5. We can tell more if those actresses don’t wear any makeup. They will show their skin, eyes, wrinkles more clearly.

    Also time has changed. A lot of women still look very good at their 40s now, unlike our parents and grandparents years ago. Women usually show them aging now at age 60s.

  6. esther Kwan is ageless. Gigi Lai is sorta ageless. Most here are make up. Charmaine has aged a lot. Joey is ok, younger than her age. But make up helps. Take away the make up and they probably is a tad better than ordinary folks but no better. Don’t forget, most of them had privilege of money and army of assistants and sponsorhips. Their looks are their assets.They probably take very good care of their looks.
