Gigi Lai Chi (Simplified Chinese: 黎姿, born on 1 October 1971) is a Hong Kong actress under contract to the TVBtelevision channel.

She is the grand-daughter of Mr. Lai Man-Wai (黎文�), who is a key figure of the first generation filmmakers, and have been referred as "Father of Hong Kong Movie". With this kind of background, you would expect Gigi to have grown up in luxury. However, the reality is the complete opposite and she grew up under very poor circumstances.

Gigi is very well known for her beautiful image and her love of beauty, the Hong Kong media has dubbed her the nickname “Goddess of Beauty.� (爱美神). In the past, Gigi would turn down roles if they affected her appearance onscreen. But now Gigi has changed, placing greater emphasis on acting opportunities rather than the need to appear beautiful onscreen.

When Gigi was only 14 years old, she entered the entertainment industry and earned money to support the whole family. She first started out as a singer, she released many albums during the 90's, in both Cantonese and Mandarin. Gigi has made several box office hits, especially for her role as the innocent and stuttering “Smartie� in the popular "Young and Dangerous" movies.

She won the TVB Most Popular Actress Award in 2004 for her portrayal of a scheming and conniving concubine in the hit series "War and Beauty". Gigi has since become very popular with fans from Hong Kong and mainland China and many overseas countries.
