Everything about the talented Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi
Welcome to Zhang Ziyi Infos, your best source for the Chinese actress since 2007. Zhang Ziyi is a famous actress known for her roles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Grandmaster and so many other great films. Zhang Ziyi currently stars in The Rebel Princess, a 68 episodes Chinese period drama. Read her full biographyhere.
It was rumoured a while ago. Ziyi’s characters in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the “Mothra Twins”, were supposed to reunite in a post-credit scene that was never filmed. Director Michael Dougherty posted the concept art of the scene on his Instagram.
The artwork shows the character of Doctor Ilene Chen, played by Zhang Ziyi, walking through a ramen bar towards a secret tunnel. There she meets with her twin sister Doctor Ling Chen, and they have a brief conversation. Then Ilene Chen enters a room containing the egg of the noble kaiju Mothra, being taken care of by her twin daughters.
The full importance of this scene will be readily apparent to those versed in early Godzilla movies lore. Traditionally, Mothra was depicted as a deity and protector of a group of humans living on an island. Mothra interacted with the islanders through the Shobijin, which refers to twin sisters who have the ability to commune with Mothra.
While the lore of the Shobjin was not explored in King of the Monsters, the post-credit scene would have confirmed they were indeed a part of the movie. It would have also confirmed that the responsibility of taking care of the Mothra egg has been passed on from Doctor Chen and her twin sister to her twin daughters, who are the new Shobjin.
Instead, the special relationship between the two Chen sisters and Mothra was only hinted at in the film. However, with the reveal of the scrapped post-credits scene, Dougherty has pretty much confirmed that a reborn Mothra will be making an appearance in the next film in the series.

Later the same day, Ziyi attended the special screening of “The Road Home“. The actress shared her memories ‘I didn’t really know what I was doing in the movie and what kind of art it was. At that time, of course, there was no acting technique and I just lived as a girl.‘ Source
A retrospective of Ziyi’s career was organized in a theater in Beijing to mark her 20 years long career. She showed up and sat with Hou Yong and others to talk about her work and movies such as Crouching Tiger, 2046, The Grandmaster, and more.
The actor, China’s reigning box-office king thanks to mega-blockbusters Wolf Warrior 2 and The Wandering Earth, bounded to the stage at a packed gala hosted by Shanghai Film Group to unveil the first official trailer for his next action spectacle.
The Climbers dramatizes the real-life expedition of Chinese mountaineers Wang Fuzhou, Gonpo and Qu Yinhua, who made a historic ascent up Mount Everest’s North Ridge in 1960. The Chinese team was the first to successfully climb Everest’s north side, which is known to be especially perilous. The trio famously left a small statue of Chairman Mao atop the summit before returning midway down the mountain to heroically rescue a fourth member of their team who was unable to complete the mission.
The filmmakers also unveiled the release date for The Climbers. The film has lined up a nationwide release on Sept. 30, prime positioning on the eve of China’s patriotic National Day holiday period from Oct. 1-Oct. 7, which is expected to generate a box-office bonanza.
Ziyi was still in Shanghai tonight to attend the 2019 Weibo Movie Awards. Her movie The Climbers won the award of the Most Anticipated Film while Ziyi accepted the prize of the Most Influential Actress.
Yesterday and today, the cast and the crew of The Climbers attended the 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival. The director Daniel Lee, the producer Tsui Hark and the cast members Wu Jing, Hu Ge, Zhang Yi, Jing Boran and Ziyi walked the red carpet of the opening ceremony of the festival.
