Chen Jia Jia (陈佳佳)

I have featured pictures with Chinese martial arts actress Chen Jia Jia's (Angela Chen being her western name) likeness in some previous entries. This 25-years old budding star with characteristic features has been working on film and TV for mainly domestic market so in this side of the world she's quite unknown. Skilled martial artist with good performances in tournaments under her belt and known for her acrobatic fighting style, Chen is internationally perhaps best known for her impressive debut as general Kualo in Tsui Hark's Seven Swords. Without spoiling too much and giving credit to her strong presence, when she leaves the scene after some 40 minutes the movie becomes completely forgettable wushu wishwash. The first two pictures are modeled after stills of the said movie.

Man, I totally thought she died too soon in Seven Swords and she had such a strong presence in the beginning of the movie. Regardless, I'm glad I saw her anyway. She's really something...
