Biography

Born and raised in Malaysia of Chinese descent, she currently resides in Petaling Jaya, Selangor with her family. She holds a bachelor's degree in Business Management and can speak fluent Malay, Cantonese and English while also learning Tagalog to help her television acting career in the Philippines.

Modeling
Soo began modelling at age 17 and moved to Hong Kong at age 20 to further her modelling career, which has brought her all over Asia, including Singapore. At 156 cm (just under 5'1") tall, her petite size is not conducive to catwalk modeling, hence most of her shoots tend to be print and television commercials. However, she has graced local magazines' covers such as New Man, V Mag, New Tide GLAM and Nu You. She is a spokesperson for international watch brand Longines along with Malaysian theatre personality Paula Malai Ali, and for Celcom with Singaporean singer JJ Lin.

One in Hong Kong.

In September 2010, she performed opposite Christian Bautista in a 4 part series of Your Song (TV series) entitled Beautiful Girl which was shot through Mid July and August between Malaysia and the Philippines. The next year, Soo returned to the Philippines for a month-long series of TV5 (Philippines) short lived Sunday Afternoon Anthology.
