Michelle Monique Reis (born Michele Monique Reis) is a Hong Kong actress, model, and beauty queen of Portuguese-Macanese and Shanghainese descent. In 1988, she won the Miss Chinese International Pageant and Miss Hong Kong beauty pageants. Afterward, she became one of Hong Kong's most prominent actresses in the 1990s, preferring to act in more introspective, higher-quality movies that often were independent films. Reis often played dynamic characters, with a significant number of her roles centering around characters deemed more "difficult" to portray in Hong Kong cinema, such as prostitutes, femme fatales, and professional killers. Known for her youthful beauty and often deemed "one of the most beautiful women in Asia", Reis has continued to remain in the public eye long after her film career subsided in the early 2000s. Outside of the Chinese-speaking world, she is most famous for her role as the Hitman's Assistant in Fallen Angels (1995), which brought her critical acclaim internationally, as well as status as a cult film character and saw her nominated for “Best Actress” at the 1996 Golden Bauhinia Awards.
