Born in Hong Kong, Agnes Ng Siu-wan initially worked in distribution and marketing of foreign films while also writing a column in the newspaper Tian Tian Daily News. She went to England to study business in 1973, returning in late 1974 to join Redifusion Television as director. Nine months later, after directing Neighbourhood (1975), Below the Victoria Peak (1975), Four Moods (1975) and other shows, she left for TVB. There, she directed many television dramas, including Golden Age (1975), Dragon, Tiger, Leopard (1976), The Itinerant Boy (1976), CID (1976), Bonjour tristesse (1976), Young People (1977), Strange Tales in the World (1979), Taxi Driver (1979) and Women at Thirty (1979).
Ng then turned to film, directing the woman’s film Once Upon a Rainbow (1982), employing a cast of newcomers. When the film performed a less-than-satisfactory HK$300 million at the box office, she decided to leave the film industry and went to study in Canada.
