There’s More Than Action That Meets the Eye with Chinese Actress Yu Nan

Born in Dalian, Yu Nan studied at the Beijing Film Academy, where she graduated in 1999. The Beijing Film Academy is the Harvard of film schools.  Her feature film debut, in Lunar Eclipse (1999), which earned her the Best Actress of the Deauville Asian Film Festival, started her career working with several of China’s Sixth-Generation film directors. She subsequently starred in three more films with Wang Quan’an: Jingzhe (2003), which earned her the Best Actress Golden Rooster Award and the Best Actress prize of the Paris International Film Festival in 2003; Tuya’s MarriageGolden Bear in 2007 at the Berlin International Film Festival for which she won the Best Actress prize from the Chicago International Film Festival[citation needed]; and Weaving Girl (2009), which won Jury Special Grand prix and the FIPRESCI prize from the 2009 Montreal World Film Festival.  If seems to be a running theme, yes she is a stellar actress.  

Getting to play alongside Hollywood legendary action stars in the bigger and better Expendables 2 (SEE Review) could be a great break for the actress in the American film scene.   Moreover, she is fluent in MandarinFrench, and English.
