Michelle Yeoh: From Ballerina to Oscar Winner

Michelle Yeoh

Before Michelle Yeoh became a global superstar and the first Asian Best Actress winner at the Oscars, she began by dreaming of becoming a professional ballerina

Michelle Yeoh is the first Asian woman to win the coveted Best Actress Award at the 2023 Oscars. She won this award for her performance in the movie, "Everything Everywhere All at Once."

Michelle Yeoh has been defying Hollywood norms for over four decades. In the 1980s, she became one of Hong Kong’s most popular stars after appearing in a string of successful martial arts films. By the late 1990s, she co-starred alongside Pierce Brosnan in the 007 flick Tomorrow Never Dies. Her performance as Wai Lin was widely considered to be progressive for shattering Asian stereotypes in Western cinema.
