Zhang Ziyi: Sharing Secrets of Success

• ‘The film is set several years after the events of the 2014 “Godzilla,” and her character is a significant figure within the covert Monarch organization established in that film.’ -Variety
• The actress remarked that she felt fortunate that her role in the film isn’t very large as it still left time to take care of her daughter. “It was good since I only needed to be on set five days a week.” -Global Times
• Ziyi refused the part 3 times before accepting. She changed her mind after realizing her niece could finally watch one of her film, referring to The Wasted Times and its adult content.
• During the press conference at San Diego Comic-Con, the director was asked more details about Ziyi’s character. Dougherty said she plays “a scientist working for Monarch like her mother and grandmother before her. She specializes in deciphering the mythological backgrounds of the Titans” -Wiki
• At some point, Ziyi was supposed to film a post-credits scene: “the filmmakers planned on filming another one with Dr. Chen and her sister. In that unfilmed scene, the sisters meet inside an ancient temple in Tokyo, and one of the sisters expresses her concerns with something they’re about to do. They then enter a chamber in which a second Mothra egg is revealed with another set of identical twins signing the Mothra song, thus trying to hatch the egg” -Screenrant
