She waited for a total of 4 hours before she got in.

Some Quotes:

[on acting] “I wouldn’t want to be in a film because I’m Asian. I want to get respect as an actress.”
(would she want to be on a website because she’s Asian? Or just want respect as a woman? ;-))

[on hate sites regarding her and her role in Harry Potter] “This kind of stuff is inevitable because Dan has so many female fans – millions of them – so I’m nor surprised some of them don’t like me.”
(well, now we have a fan-post which may lead to millions of male fans! ;-))

  1. I’m going to have to admit, but the first time that I saw her I didn’t think she looked all that attractive. However, as time has gone on she has grown to intrigue me. I don’t think she’s “hot” exactly but there’s something about her that really interests me.

  2. I think she was woefully underused in both movies, but that’s probably due to time constraints. In fact, the latest movie felt really incomplete and rushed. Anyway, I’d love to hear her talk more.

  3. Very pretty.
    How fitting that she would be Harry Potter’s love interest.
    Harry Potter is the ULTRA TODD.

  4. ..usually meaning hair that hangs straight down over the forehead, as in photos #2, 3, & 5. I like the schoolgirl look for her, so the hairstyle fits just fine.

  5. That combination of looking at her and listening to that voice would make me fall in love. Whew. I hope we get to see more of her in the future.

  6. She’s more pretty than hot and that’s the way I like it. Katie is wonderful and looks quite adoring on the magazine cover. Damn it, now I want her.

  7. shes NOT half chinese shes full chinese. she even looks full chinese. where’d you get that she was half-chinese from?

  8. lol, christine, i’m pretty sure Robin must know what that means, if not… I pity him. 😉

    Anyways, this girl is pretty i think, perhaps not stunning, but definately pretty. And I agree, she was underused in the movies, but the movies overall were missing a lot so I cant really pick at that too much.

    Great post, Its girls like this that I would like to see featured more here. 🙂

  9. She is full Chinese.

    ***** Born in Scotland to Chinese Parents:

    “Leung was born in Motherwell, North Lanarkshire to Peter and Kar Wai Li Leung. Her parents are now divorced, and she currently resides with her father (a native of Hong Kong), two brothers, and a sister.[citation “

  10. Christine, I usually agree with a lot of your posts but I’ll have to take exception to your misgivings about bangs.

    God… how I love bangs…


    That said, while I don’t find her “gorgeous” by any means, I definitely would say she is super cute. She kind of has that girl next door approachability going on.

    However, to be honest, I see girls like this all of the time in Toronto. Not that I’m complaining. Toronto is a very good place to live. 😉

  11. hey sevendeuce, the bangs look fine on her because she’s pretty, but i feel like the sideswept look is a lot more flattering for her. i like blunt bangs too! i think they look great on some people, but katie would look better without them 🙂

    i hear toronto has a large chinese population! no wonder.

  12. Actually, I have to agree with Christine on this one: I think sideswept looks best. I also think Christine herself looks best that way too. 😉

  13. Mmmmmmmm, Daddy like… haha! I’m sure her Daddy won’t like what I have in mine. Are you sure she’s full chinese? She looks like she has a “Little Irish” in her… oh, hee hee that’s just me!

  14. She does look full Chinese so it makes sense that’s she is full Chinese…This girl really is a sweety pie. There are far too many posts in my opinion on this site of the Asian girls who make themselves look like porn stars. Katie L is a beautiful Asian woman and it’s too bad most guys probably prefer a whory looking woman over a true beauty.

    It’s girls like these that make me feel sorry for the women who aren’t born with natural physical beauty. I’ve only gone out with girls I’ve been physically attracted to. Does that make me a dirt bag? It’s not fair to be ugly in a superficial world.

  15. Boy, what a hotie. Gentlemans, I need
    help please. I’ve find beautiful oriental ladies in newsgroup
    – alt.japanese.neojapan.gazou , and I
    need to know if there is more of these
    models, and who they are? Is it japanese
    vietnam or thailand. They are whole
    series, very large pictures, but incomplete, but very beautiful.
    Can somebody please take a look, and
    tell me where to get more of them?

    Thank you. william

  16. William, your request is way too general to really be answerable, and if you have something to share with us, please send us a message via the “Contact Asian Sirens” link in the left column. Please keep our threads on topic!

  17. LawBoy…you wonder if she has a little vietnamese in her? or maybe she wants a little vietnamese in her? I bet GoodTaste loves her blunt bangs also. 🙂

  18. Her bangs aren’t that bad, especially being on her sexy head. She could be bald and possibly tear most women to pieces. I’m going to have to marry this girl; her speaking english makes it a hell of a lot easier.

  19. I think she is cute and would love to show her my magic wand, but she ain’t stylish. Not when she be rockin’ some ugly ass shoes and could do a better job with her hair. And Scotland must be full of fuglies for her to be the hottest Scot, but I guess that was said to generate publicity for the movie. She’s cute but she’s ain’t all that.

  20. Got to disagree with GoodTaste on this one. She’s certainly cute enough, but pretty average by Chinese standards – hardly outstanding IMHO.

  21. Whatever. She’s a true beauty and if you guys can’t see it I don’t know what to say…Too bad? Just wait till she ages a couple of years. I do admit she does gives off the vibe of being “childish” often in her personality, so the best is still to come. She just has to start acting in some real movies.

  22. Personally, I like the youthfullness that she exudes. She probably isn’t going to change too much as she gets older. Most asian women are like that… at least from what I’ve seen myself. Her accent is ridiculous! I think I came a little when I first heard her speak. There is a Filipino term called: nanggigigil that best discribes how I feel about this particular Asian Siren. It kinda-sorta means that I wanna put my hands on her but I’m not sure if I wanna punch her, caress her, press my body up against hers, squeeze her, play with her or whatever… I just want to touch her and be with her in the worst way. No violence intended, by any means! There is that kind of tenseness there though… haha! I wouldn’t mind waking up next to her every morning. I’d cook and clean house for a woman like her. She’d have to make all the money though (ofcourse).

  23. hey, we dont want to hear about your bodily functions Irish boy…a tad too much infor dude….

  24. Eeeeew! That is a little weird back there. I really don’t think there’s many of us who are into the whole punching thing. I don’t get it.

  25. Hahaha! Sorry guys… I didn’t mean to come across as gross or demented. I was just trying to make a silly point.. tee hee. I would never punch anyone… I’m nowhere near a tough guy. But, like I said, I get a weird tense kinda feeling when I see her. And I don’t mean in my undies… Bwaahahahahahahaha! Much love for putting up with my banter guys!

  26. I think you need to punch your monkey maybe when you see her. Or quite possibly spank it. It’s the bluntness of them bangs, damit. They’ll drive a man wild. I feel funny now. 🙂

  27. Try punching you monkey… I did and it was soooooooo gooooooodddd! Haha! I think he may be angry at me now though… weird, huh?

  28. Those bangs will destroy a man, I agree! I grieve for the creation of bangs such as the ones that grace the visage of this lovely Scot!

  29. I just clicked on this page right now to see if this girl was still amazing, and yes she still is.

  30. People! Stop with the comments on this page already! SCIENCE DAMN IT! I am getting sick and tired of having to come back to this page to read your silly little comments. Haha! Sick because Katie’s killing me with the hotness and tired because… well… er… nevermind…

  31. Hey FlipnIrish, my wife uses nanggigigil too! In my experience, it usually means “I am especially attracted to you right now” and can be followed by pinching or a soft (usually) bite to the chin. Never knew how to spell it, though. Don’t think I should tell her I know now — she might think I learned it at work and then watch out!
    Katie is cute, but she’s the same age as my daughter and looks even younger, so I think I’ll have to turn my attentions elsewhere.

  32. Nanggigigil can have lots of meanings… its kinda funny. Mostly a form of affection though from what I gather. Playful violence between friends or lovers. I’ve heard it used (much like your wife’s usage) as a word for being horny… haha!

    It kinda sucks that you have a daughter around the ages of many of the posted women here. It must ruin it for you a bit. I’m 28 and it seems that, in the last few years, I have been more attracted to women who are closer to my age or a bit older. I like to look at the young ones but I would be hard pressed to date one much younger than me. Older, more experienced women know what they want and the best thing about it is that they don’t play games or waste your time. Haha! I’m ranting… When they’re young they’re corruptable though… sigh. I can never win. Haha!

  33. Bangs or not, I’d bang…wait is minute. Damn it Dick you stole the words right out of my mouth.

  34. I try not too think too much about how young they are (as long as they’re not 12 or something). If I see someone that looks like my daughter, I just burn my retinas and it’s all better:-)
