Kenneth Ma (Chinese: 馬國明) is a Hong Kong TVB actor. He was born on 13 Feb, 1974. He graduated from University of British Columbia majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Although he initially intended to pursue a career in engineering, he decided the industry did not suit his personality and enrolled in acting classes at TVB instead despite the better pay and more stable prospects of the former. Initially in his career Kenneth often played supporting roles, however in recent years TVB has started to promote him. He won the 'Most improved actor award' at the 39th TVB Awards in 2006. He was recently handed his first leading role in the drama serial Survivor's Law II opposite Hong Kong singer Ella Koon. The drama aired in 2008 and achieved credible ratings of 31 points in the second half of its broadcast as well as a favourable reception.

Kenneth was rumoured to be dating Margie Tsang, a former TVB actress ten years his senior and ex-girlfriend of Tony Leung Chiu Wai.
