Ella Koon is a multi-talented artiste born in the French Polynesia island of Tahiti, of Chinese descent. She was raised in Hong Kong and attended high school in Birmingham, England. Koon is multi-lingual and speaks Cantonese, English, French and Mandarin.
After completing her studies in England, Koon returned to Hong Kong in 2000 where she began her modeling career for various magazines, advertisements and commercials. One of her most memorable commercials was for The Diamond Trading Company (DTC), part of the De Beers family of companies. “We flew to Australia and the set, the story line was so beautiful and so romantic,” said Koon.
Modeling became her full time profession from then on, and in 2001, she landed her first movie role in “I Do”. After the movie, she continued her modeling career; then in 2004 she got an email from an acquaintance she met, who invited her to attend a singing audition. The audition landed her a contract with Boombeat Music and launched her singing career. Even though Ella has released several albums – “Original” the debut album, “Ellacadabra” that was released in late 2005, “Abnormal” in 2006 and the recent EP “Stages” in 2008 — she did not leave a deep impression as a singer. It was not until recently in 2009 was Ella fully recognized as a singer on The Voice (超級巨聲) singing Endless love and therefore re-launched her singing career.
Koon also starred in the popular TVB’s drama series “Revolving Door of Vengeance” in 2005 and “Survivor’s Law II ” in 2007. Viewers instantly fell in love with both of her characters on the shows. In “Revolving Door of Vengeance” she play “Hoi Sum” (which means happy in Chinese) a carefree and happy go lucky girl. In “Survivor’s Law II,” she won the audience again with her character as “Lily” the sassy and stylish lawyer who could hold her own in the courtroom. Besides the drama series, Koon has been invited as a guest to several TVB games shows and was a host a for two food travel shows with notable Hong Kong Chefs.
“I Do” was just the first of many movies Koon appeared and started in. She also landed roles in movies such as My Sweetie (甜絲絲, 2004), Drink, Drank, Drunk (千杯不醉, 2005), Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (冰河世紀二, 2006), The Shopaholics (最愛女人購物狂, 2006), Without Words (地老天荒, 2006), Undercover Hidden Dragon (至尊無賴, 2006), Arthur and the Minimoys (迷你魔界大冒險 , 2007), Muddy but Pure White (泥巴色的純白, 2008), Playboy Cops (花花型警, 2008), Look for a Star (游龍戲鳳, 2008), Short of Love (矮仔多情, 2009) and Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (冰河世紀三, 2009).
