Nancy Wu (Chinese: 胡定欣)(born September 9, 1981) is a Chinese actress contracted to TVB.

Career[edit]

In 1999, she participated in TVB's 18th Annual New Talent Singing Awards competition and finished in the top four. In 2001, she entered TVB's 3rd Annual Cover Girl Competition and won the Most Photogenic Award, the Most Fit Award, the Most Attractive Award, and the Overall Winner Award. Following that, she enrolled in the 18th TVB Acting Class and entered the entertainment industry.[1]

Along with nine other TVB artists, Wu went to Hunan in April 2008 to participate in the show Strictly Come Dancing - Season Two. She became the first participant of the show to achieve full marks in her individual dance. She also achieved full marks twice in the dance with her partner, Nathan Lee. Nancy and her partner were the favourites to win but came third place in the competition. Due to the number of full marks achieve in the competition, Nancy was given the title "Full Marks Dance Queen". Strictly Come Dancing - Season Two also brought Nancy a lot of functions regarding dance, and because of this colleagues in TVB have given her a nickname "TVB Dance Girl".

At the 2008 TVB Anniversary Awards, she won the Most Vastly Improved Actress Award based on Wars of In-Laws II, D.I.E, The Silver Chamber of Sorrows, Legend of the Demigods and Strictly Come Dancing - Season Two. The Silver Chamber of Sorrows also brought Nancy nomination in the Best Supporting Actress of that year.

In November 2012, Nancy received a Long Service Award from TVB for her contributions to the company.[2] She was also awarded the TVB Best Supporting Actress award in December 2012.
