Leanne Li, born 25 November 1984, was the 2005 Miss Chinese International Pageant winner hailing from Vancouver, Canada. She is now an actress and a TV host for TVB.



Leanne's family originate from Shanghai, China who later emigrated to Canada when she was a child. The eldest of two girls, she was a second year fine arts student at the University of British Columbia before participating in the pageants at the age of 20.

At the age of 20, Leanne competed as contestant #10 in Miss Chinese Vancouver 2004 Pageant, taking the crown. She also took the titles of Miss Photogenic and Best Posture. As the winner this pageant, she represented the city of Vancouver at Miss Chinese International the following year.

In January, she arrived in Hong Kong to compete for the Miss Chinese International 2005 crown. Being considered just a favorite, she beat out bigger favorite, Fala Chen of New York for the title. Her performance received positive reviews, especially during the final interview portion.

After Leanne won Miss Chinese International 2005, she met and struck up a friendship with Linda Chung, who was Miss Chinese International 2004. They became very good friends and roommates. They have both remained very good friends though they do not live as roommates at present.


After winning Miss Chinese International 2005, she gave up her studies in Vancouver and started her acting career at TVB. Due to her limited Cantonese, she was only able to host some shows on the TVB8 channel. Afterwards, she improved her Cantonese and now stars in TVB series. Her first series was "Love Guaranteed", playing an assistant of Melissa Ng's character, Hazel. She also had a role in the big production The Drive of Life. She played the role of Tavia Yeung's (Freeda in this series) best friend in the TVB series, The Building Blocks of Life.
