Weibo Fever # 11: Celebrity Childhood Pictures **Edited to include Answers**

As I was doing my daily 'stalking' on Weibo (LOL), I stumbled across a few pictures from a netizen that I thought would be kind of fun to share.

Pictures can speak a thousand words (as the saying goes) and for me, getting the chance to look at baby or childhood pictures of people is fun, as I like to see how much a person may (or may not) have changed. Some people may look the same throughout their lives (and hence even in a baby picture, he/she is easily recognizable) while others may look entirely different when they're adults versus when they were children.

Below are a few childhood pictures of various celebrities who are pretty well-known in the HK entertainment industry (that is, to those of us who follow HK entertainment pretty closely that is).

How many celebrities are you able to identify?

Have fun!! :-)

** All pictures credit as listed **


Pic 1: Female Artists

** Hint: All pictured are TV actresses for the most part (except for 1, who was in very few series) and all of them worked for TVB at one point (I know that's not much of a hint, since almost every celebrity in HK worked for TVB at one point in their lives...LOL).

Answers (highlight to read):

Top row (left to right): Ada Choi (蔡少芬), Jessica Hsuan (宣萱), Esther Kwan (關詠荷)
Middle row (left to right): Monica Chan (陳法蓉), Annie Man (文頌嫻), Flora Chan (陳慧珊)
Bottom row (left to right): Vivian Chow (周慧敏), Noelle Leung (梁小冰), Athena Chu (朱茵)


Pic 2: Male Artists A

** Hint: Again, all the guys pictured are (or were) TV actors (though that doesn't mean they didn't do 'other things' throughout their careers -- such as singing) and all worked for TVB at one point. One of the guys is now a popular movie actor (actually, an 'award-winning' movie actor).

  1. I found the actresses and superstars were easiest to work out. For the male actors, I only guessed Ben Wong and Gordon Lam correctly (they have barely changed!). The one that really surprised me was Stephen Chow. Can't see any trace of this child in him anymore!
