I think actors with good Cantonese,Mandarin and English would be Nicholas Tse,Michelle Ye and Melissa Ng .can't think of other .Can you name more stars who are good at the three languages.

Name why you know they are good with three languages? Did you see them on television speaking all three languages, or the radio? Also name the three language(s) if you can. Elaborate.

I agree with Nicholas Tse . and possibly Edison Chen because he speaks all of those languages, he just sorta needs to improve [although he did]

Nnadia Chan can speak pretty good for all three of these languages. I've seen her singapore series and she spoke very well in mandarin. She has also spoke some English in her series too, and they were good as well.

Jessica Hsuan could be added to that list. Cantonese is a given. She studied in England when she was 13 till her graduation from Imperial College. Her english is really good, with a British accent of course. Her Grammer is perfect, I never seen a mistake on any of the messages she writes but there is a hint of Britsh slang? Not sure where she learned her Mandarin from but she can go though an entire interview without converting to Cantonese and without hesistation. I don't speak Mardarin so I cannot judge how well she speaks it.

Michelle Ye speaks Mardarin better than Cantonese (as I heard) and her english is really good as she moved to NY when she was around 8? Born somewhere in China if I'm not mistaken.

Nnadia Chan~~she's definitely good in canto since she grew up speaking in it....she's also VERY fluent in mando ---had filmed several mando series, released a few mando albums and had numorous mando interviews...that shows how good her mando is...as for her English, its also good...she had a american boyfriend from New York for 10 years, hosted a whole show in English when Hk was returned back to China and in her series, there would be times she spoke in english....eventho Nnadia has an accent given that its not her 1st language but she can carry on long conversations w/o a problem and it can be understood clearly ^_^

Michelle Ye and Melissa Ng definitely speak good can, man and eng.
As for Jessica, not sure about her mandarin, somehow it's more towards HK Mandarin. It is not a perfect one..

It's hard to find actors/actresses that are fluent in all three languages.

I know Nnadia Chan and Melissa Ng can speak really good Cantonese, Mandarin and English.

Michele Ye, I've never heard her speak mandarin so i dont' know but she should be fluent in cantonese and english since she graduate from college in New york(?)

Raymond is fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin but never heard him speak English so don't know either.

But Daniel Wu's Cantonese and Mandarin are really bad. He speaks with an accent. Maybe he has improved from when he started, but it's not really good.

I don't know about the actors/actresses/singers. I can't make a judgement on them if I haven't heard them speak in all 3 languages.

NICHOLAS TSE :iloveyou:
Ok, ok, it's because I like him, but still, he can sing in all three languages very fluently!
Of course, his Canto is WAY better than Mando or English, but his English is considered VERY good :wasntme

Myolie Wu, I read somewhere that she talked in near-perfect Madarin, and of course she went to the UK for 6 years, she should be good with English

Julian Cheung grew up in Australia I believe so he is very good in English. Of course he's good in Cantonese as seen from his TVB serials. As for Mandarin, he's pretty fluent also. I'm sure he's also improve in Mando from filming so much in China.

Michelle Ye is pretty fluent in all three. Her English and Cantonese are pretty well from her serials. You can hear her speak English very well in Triumph in the Skies. and as I've heard, she's better in Mandarin than Cantonese

Michelle Ye, definately. Then I would say Nic Tse, he studied abroad (Canada, right?) and his Mandarin is as good as his Cantonese. Umm.. who else? Melissa. I dont really thing there's that many that are FLUENT in ALL three. Edison is good in English and Cantonese and Mandarin hes okay - but not 100% fluent, and he can't read or write Chinese either (just wanted to add that, even though its not that important)

takeshi kaneshiro< can speak alot of languages...and super cute =) drools.
Jessica Hsuan, Raymond lam < Saw a clip he can speak mando pretty good. Roger Kwok, and Kelly Chen is pretty good.

As for Daniel Wu, he doesn't count until he can actually speak, he hurts my ears each time he speaks canto.

if you ask me i don't think any star can speak cantonese, mandarin and english well. they either speak one language better than the other or can't speak the other language at all.

i agree...i don't think any celebrity speak the three languages fluently because they have funny accents in one or the other...It's kinda hard learning all three languages...

i think it would definitely be jessica hsuan, mellisa ng, derik lee and michelle ye. raymond, kelly and roger are quite fluent in both mandrin n cantonese but their english is not tat great. raymond and kelly still has the chinese accent and roger english is not close to good. havent heard nnadia speak engligh b4 so cant really judge. i think most of them can speak all 3 language but they'll have at least a certain accent in one of them... either hk aacent in mandrin or chinese accent in eng.

Nic tse is pretty good...and sry ppl, i'm in LOVE with edison, but his canto is HORRIBLE. his mando is good, and his english is ok, i guess...he tries 2 sound gangsta a lot though...and it bugs me a little, but that's how he talks.

Edison's Mandarin is not that fluent at all. There's a huge American accent, but he improved a lot from the last time I heard him speak it.

All I can think of is Michelle Ye and Nicholas Tse. I've heard them speak all three languages, and they are fluent in all three.

Is Nnadia Chan fluent in three languages? I've never seen her Mandarin series before.

Not just HK, but Taiwan as well. Coco Lee is fluent in all three languages. At first I thought she was Taiwanese, but once I heard her sing in Cantonese, I was surprised. It turned out that Coco Lee is actually Cantonese, not Taiwanese. o______O Leehom Wang is fluent in all three as well, although he can only speak Cantonese conversationally. (He understands it fluently and has no accent when he tries to speak it... at least now he doesn't, lol)

For someone who hasn't gone to school abroad, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai speaks really great English.

And Kenneth Chan Kai Tai speaks fluent English and good Mandarin.
