Mini Bio (1)

Born in the former Portuguese colony of Macau to an expatriate Austrian civil engineer father and Chinese mother from Hong Kong, Jenny Tseng was a child of a divorced marriage who was put under parental custody of her estranged father with her Chinese stepmother and step-siblings. Feeling alienated with her newfound situation, she finally left Macau to rejoin her birth-mother back in Hong Kong. Facing difficulties being raised Eurasian and to a single parent in egalitarian conservative Hong Kong, Jenny attributed her perseverance and street smarts to an extended familial support system and the many guardian angels in the business along the way. Known then to the public simply as 'Jenny', Tseng first established herself in Taiwan as a Mando-pop recording artist before launching into fame back in Hong Kong eventually as crossover Canto-pop royalty that allowed her to extend her versatility and international star appeal as a TV/film celebrity. Life's difficulties continued to follow her as she braved through new challenges including a media onslaught by the tabloids that fanned the flames of public criticism as a result of her much publicized fairy-tale courtship and marriage under the spotlight to late Shaw Brothers Kung Fu film idol Alexander Fu Sheng. With a magnitude of sensationalism not unlike that of Bruce Lee's demise 7 years prior, Tseng bore the brunt of harsh public scrutiny being portrayed as a controlling and pressuring wife that precipitated his exploits and untimely death behind the dash of his Porsche 911 even though she was neither present at the scene nor responsible. Yet the media spin was that it was her behavior as his wife that indirectly pressured her superstar husband leading to his reckless and fateful night 'out with the lads'. After this tragedy, the young widow Jenny was once again challenged to pick herself up by her bootstraps, move on and persevere through the next chapter of life's ongoing sojourn, private and public...
