While she was in Taiwan and preparingfor her album release, Anya, became the first girl DJ in Taiwan clubs.
She caught alot of media attention, even media from Hong Kong. With somuch public attention, her interview in a magazine caught the eye ofDirector Jingle Ma, who then convinced Golden Harvest, a filmproduction, distribution and exhibition company to relocate her to HongKong and sign her.

So her debut film became Born To Be King, the final installment ofthe Young & Dangerous series,as Jordan Chan's wife, Nanako.

In 2002, Anya began work onthe "remake/sequel" to Naked Killer, titled Naked Weapon as Kat, thebest friend to Charlene, Maggie Q's character.

After the liquidationof Golden Harvest's talent agency, Anya decided to go back to hernative Taiwan and experiment on some TV series there.
