Suan-Li Ong


Suan-Li Ong is a British Chinese actress born to parents originating from Malaysia and Hong Kong. She is a true Londoner having lived there for the majority of her life.

As a child she spent many days after school and weekends training Ballet which led to her very first performance at The Tricycle Theatre. Her passion for performance lent it's hand to fate and at the age of 14 she was scouted by a photographer and was instantly signed to Storm Model Management thus her modelling career began. With her Asian looks and London style she has carved out a successful career in commercial and high fashion.

Suan or 'Swan' to all her friends, soon caught the 'acting bug' after appearing in numerous music videos and television commercials which opened a gateway into acting in TV and Film. This led her onto developing her passion and search for the truth in the art of acting and so she went on to attend 'Method Acting' workshops at The Giles Foreman Centre, the 'Foundation Acting' course at City Lit followed by the full time 2 year training programme with The Poor School in London.

Her 'party trick' is to show you her card skills as she is a fully trained croupier having worked in London's West End and Mayfair clubs. She is highly skilled in dealing casino games Roulette, Black Jack, Baccarat, 3 card, 5 card and Texas Hold 'em Poker. This enabled Suan to help train her fellow actors in the James Bond 'Skyfall' feature film in which she was the head croupier.

Suan-Li is confidently building up her acting repertoire and has made appearances in BBC's Spooks as 'Teng Mei-Zen', Sky 1's Strike Back as 'Fish Girl' and has just completed filming in NBC's 'Emerald City' where you may see her portrayal as 'Isabel' later this year.
