Pauline Chan Bo-Lin (Traditional Chinese:陳寶蓮, May 23, 1973 – July 31, 2002) is a deceased Hong Kong adult movie actress who aroused significant attraction and controversies in the Greater China Area during her active years in the 1990s.



Born in Shanghai, Chan's parents divorced when she was very young and she immigrated to Hong Kong with her mother at the age of 12. She started to work as a part-time fashion model at the age of 15 and contested in the 1990 Miss Asia Pageant. Chan did not win any title in this contest but her buxom figure, 175-centimeter length and mature look drew the attention of local pornographic film industry. She entered this industry in 1991 at only 18-year-old, mainly for her mother's expectations to finance their family[1][2]. Until 1997, Chan showed up in more than 25 Hong Kong Category III films and gained widespread attraction for her bold performance, becoming a prominent sex symbol in the Greater China Area at that time.


In 1997 Chan began a relationship with the playboy Taiwanese investment tycoon and celebrity Huang Jen-chung (黃任中, also credited as Wong Yam-Chung in Cantonese) who she got acquainted in 1993, and is 33 years older than she. She moved to Taipei to cohabit with Huang until they broke up in early 1999. After her death, in a media interview Huang revealed that Chan had been involved in drug abuse and sorcery since 1998; Chan did so in anticipation to soothe herself and win his heart back during their emotional low tides[3][4].

Between 1998 and 2001 Chan was involved in a chain of negative news. She attempted suicide during TV interview, repeatedly attacked people or undressed in public, trying to enter foreign countries without valid travel document and was deported as a result, set fire to her residence, and was frequently hospitalized for drug abuse[5][6]. In December 1999 she was briefly imprisoned in United Kingdom for beating unrelated person in public[7][8]. Such behavior practically ended her acting career.


After the downfall Chan secluded herself to her birthplace Shanghai and gave birth to a baby boy in early July 2002 out of wedlock. Around PM 5:30 on July 31, 2002 Chan jumped out of her 24th-floor apartment window to her death[9]: in her suicide note she cited her postpartum depression as her suicide reason, and besides expressing her deepest sorrow and blessing to Huang Jen-chung, she also asked everybody to seek her son's father, a Chinese American Taipei Disk Jockey [10]. Her funeral was high-profiled held in buddhistic ceremony on August 3, 2002 and her body was cremated[11]. Chan was later depicted in a biopic by Crystal Star, an actress who then also committed suicide.[12]
