Gigi Leung Wing-kei birth name is Leung Bik Zi (梁碧芝) but at the age of 7, her name was changed to ‘Wing Kei’ by her mother for superstitious reasons. Leung as a child suffered from frequent asthma attacks and it was believed a change of name would bring better health. At 68.5″ (174 cm), Leung earned the nickname of ‘Tall Girl’.
GiGi Leung attended Maryknoll Convent School. Later, she went to the Hong Kong Polytechnic University where she gained a diploma from the School of Design. It was during her study at university that she accepted a modelling assignment from the watch company City Chain and caught the attention of film director Lee Chi-Ngai who cast her in her very first movie, Doctor Mack (1995). The success of the movie brought her a further role in Full Throttle (1995), shot while she was finishing her diploma. For her supporting role in the film, Leung received a nomination for Best Newcomer at the 1995 Hong Kong Film Awards.
