Training for many years as a ballet dancer, Cheng's physical skills helped in her many martial arts roles. The actress caught her big break in the 1964 film "Lovers' Rock" and was subsequently cast in numerous Hong Kong martial arts films throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Cheng is perhaps known best for her role as Golden Swallow, the deft swordswoman and lead character in the 1966 film "Come Drink with Me" by director King Hu.
