Zhang Ziyi

Born: Beijing, China

Considered one of the top Chinese film actresses of modern times, Ziyi has managed to turn that into an international career, unlike her compatriots. First getting international recognition, and awards, for her performance in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, she continued a run of successes including Rush Hour 2, Hero, House of Flying Daggers, and Memoirs of a Geisha. All of these films received serious accolades, and Ziyi herself has been nominated for BAFTA and Golden Globe awards. In addition to acting, she has been a mentor on China’s version of The X Factor while being the international endorser for Visa, Maybelline, and currently, Omega Watches.


Yang Mi

Born: Beijing, China

In film and television since the age of four, Mi already has dozens of movies and television shows behind her. She started on the show Tang Ming Huang in 1993, and earned accolades for her role, with the show itself winning multiple awards for Best Children’s Series. Not satisfied with almost two decades of roles on the screen, she released her first album in 2012, winning the Beijing Pop Music Awards "Most Popular Newcomer" for her effort. With endorsement deals with Pepsi, she is poised to emerge onto the international scene.
