An actress who does not speak English fluently has to learn everything perfectly in English and give the impression she does, but the script keeps changing. That sounds challenging for anyone, to me.


I don't doubt that, but remembering lines, dealing with script changes and so on is part of any actor's job. If she couldn't cope then she was miscast. However, the real reason for her casting is obvious.

That she had to overcome these difficulties is kind of a sign that she did cope. It's not like the article says the challenge was as impossible for her to deal with as you're making this out to sound like. It was just tough for her, plain and simple. Lots of actors face hard tasks in their acting that they have to overcome.

Would you still feel the same if this were about a man instead? Or if she wasn't that attractive?

Your inference is incorrect. One only has to look at Jackie Chan for an example of an actor who overcame their challenges, and in a lead role as well. The current trend for major films to shoehorn in scenarios and actors to promote the film in certain markets has the potential to hobble the story for the sake of consumption. This is the reason for her casting, otherwise it would have been simple to find someone with the right gender and look who had none of her "challenges".

An actor who views certain acting experiences as challenging is "actually acting." Please look up Li Bing Bing's acting career before commenting. Ignorance is not appreciated. She's a great actress in every way. She's not the biggest Asian star because she can't act in movies. Speaking a foreign language presents difficulties for everyone. But I wonder. Why can't she speaks Chinese and have it dubbed? It is shot in Shanghai/china. Whatever the situation. She is not "miscast!"

Yeah, that could have been a good solution, at least for the scenes where it's just her and other Chinese characters. If she spoke in Chinese to the other actors who are supposed to be American (Cade, Tessa, etc.) it wouldn't work.

And is she the "biggest Asian star?" I find that hard to believe, true it may be. I haven't heard of her before, and I do know Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh, Jet Li, and a few others, though mostly because they came to Hollywood. But they had successful and accomplished careers in Asia before they did.

In the Asian communities, she's extremely big. She's in resident evil, and a few other American movies. In terms of acting, she's really good. International stars are usually well-known for action movies, and comedies making fun of each other (Rush Hour) :). Don't get me wrong, I love Jackie Chan movies. Check out his Chinese movies. He's a great actor. I suggest anyone still on the fence about her to youtube or check out some of her movies. Otherwise, wait a could week and judge for yourself.

She was recently cast as blink in Days of Future Past X-men movie. Hollywood is making a big push for her as the go to Young Asian in a movie.

FYI to other posters, jackie chan would say lines in movies he did not know what it meant. for reference watch any jackie chan movie with bloopers.

I know very well who she is, and you prove my point. She was cast specifically to sell the movie in Asia, like many other blockbusters are these days. I would have thought a challenge in acting in a Transformers movie would be something along the lines of interacting with giant robots that are not really there, etc.

In the end, are any of us here really going to watch this movie because Li Bingbing, Mark Wahlberg or hot actress of the week is in it? No. This is simply to get the non-fan audience in to watch the movie. I get that - it is a business after all, and there is nothing wrong with promoting a movie. However please do not expect me to care about her complaints about her "challenges" which have nothing to with giant transforming robots and everything to do with the business of film-making.

Wrong asian actress. X-Men DOFP features Fan Binbing who is 32.

Transformers AOE features Li Bingbing who is 41. They are almost 10 years apart and look very different from one another. Li Bingbing is a famous asian actress, but currently Fan Bingbing is faaaaaaaar more popular.

I am asian, and to have me think that is ignorant, but i figured there couldn't possibly be two bingbing actresses as the amount of hollywood asian actors are so minimal.

plus with her glasses on in the picture and the other actress blink in x-men in costume, i didn't know. LOL
