Successes in recent dramas have propelled Andy Yang (楊紫) to become one of the top actresses in China. In the latest Power Star rankings, which measure celebrities’ popularity levels through Baidu and social media search trends, Andy overpowered Yang Mi (楊冪) who has consistently been in first place, and even managed to push her and Dilraba Dilmurat (also known as Dilireba 迪麗熱巴) out of the top three spots.
Yang Mi and Dilireba dropped down to fourth and fifth places behind actresses Zanila Zhao (趙麗穎) and Tiffany Tang (唐嫣), who came in second and third places respectively.
Similar results are also appearing on other well-known celebrity rankings in which reinforces Andy’s stable status and establishes her as one of the top actresses of the new generation.
Breaking out in the mainstream market with her performance in Ashes of Love <香蜜沉沉燼如霜>, Andy continued to reap success with her role in Go Go Squid <親愛的熱愛的>. She received significant love and attention, as reflected in the overall high ratings and the consistent dominance for both dramas. The most recent work of hers, My Mowgli Boy < 我的莫格利男孩> also achieved a large following, with her portrayal of a domineering character creating mass discussions and her CEO outfits becoming the most searched words.
Another factor that contributed to this result is likely because Yang Mi and Dilreba’s recent projects failed to attract viewers. To add on, Andy has also overtaken Yang Mi’s magical disposition of bringing success to male co-stars and boosting their popularity levels.
