The multi-award winning ZHANG ZIYI (Gong Er) is a three-times BAFTA nominee and a regular presence on lists of the world's
most beautiful women. She initially trained as a dancer in her native
Beijing. She came to international attention at nineteen for her role in
Zhang Yimou's 1999 The Long Road Home and achieved mega-
stardom as the young girl in Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Her range is remarkably diverse, from action roles to the lead in the
2005 Memoirs of a Geisha. She first worked with Wong Kar Wai in 2046.
Her delicate beauty belies exceptional physical strength, flexibility and
stamina which, together with her dancer's training (she studied dance
before she studied acting) made her the perfect choice for the
character of Gong Er, who is a master of the dance-like, flowing and
circular Bagua style of kung fu.
