    About me

    I'm a bilingual actress based in London. I was trained at China Central Television (CCTV) in Beijing for seven years as a child actor, singer and voice-over artist, and performed regularly on TV and stage in 1990s. I graduated from Zhejiang University with BA (Hons) in Drama and Theatre Arts before moving to the UK. After gaining an MBA at Imperial College London, I worked in corporate finance for a few years before returning to acting as it had always been my passion. I re-trained as an actor with City Lit between 2014 and 2016; in the meantime I appeared in a number of corporate and commercials in both English and Mandarin. After City Lit, I've been working on various acting projects. In 2017, I played the leading role for Mark Lanegan's music video 'Beehive'. In 2018, I played Yi Di in From Shore to Shore - a play by Mary Cooper and M W Sun based on true stories of the Chinese community in Manchester, playing at associated venues of West Yorkshire Playhouse, Royal Exchange Manchester, Oxford Playhouse, Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse, and York Theatre Royal. I also appeared on Sky Arts for a poetry reading alongside Jemma Redgrave for a special programme about Chinese artist Ai Weiwei at Royal Academy of Arts. In 2019, I played Jing Fei in James Soldan's short film Semi-Skimmed starring Tony Award winner Lee Sharpe - the film has been screened at various film festivals in Europe. In 2020, I starred in a Zee 5 original spy thriller London Confidential acting opposite Mouni Roy as Chinese spy Yuki. Most recently, I have been cast as Marie Yuen in BBC's Silent Witness Season 24 which will be released in September 2021.
