SHU QI (Lai) has made 45 movies in a six-year period. Her breakthrough
came when Hou Hsiao-hsien cast her in "Millenium Mambo" as Vicky, a
nightclub hostess torn between two men. "Millenium Mambo" put Shu Qi
under the tutelage of director Hou, a serious cinefile who almost
single-handedly put Taiwanese art films on the global map. Some of her recent
films include "For Bad Boys Only," directed by Raymond Yip,
"Martial Angels," directed by Clarence Fok and "Skyline
Cruisers," directed by Wilson Yip.
Shu appeared with Jackie Chan in the romantic-comedy "Gorgeous" and
starred in the Hong Kong horror film box-office hit "Visible Secret."
She currently plays one of the three nubile nymphets who can kick butt as well
as curl on mascara in Hong Kong's answer to "Charlie's Angels,"
Shu Qi has proved her acting credibility by winning the prestigious Golden
Horse awards in Taiwan (regarded as the "Asian Oscars") for best
supporting actress. She has also received a nomination for Best Actress from the
Golden Horse Awards.
