Son of famed director Chen Kaige (陳凱歌), Arthur Chen Feiyu’s (陳飛宇) work studio announced that the 21-year-old star has given up his American citizenship, and became a Chinese citizen.
Began Submissions in 2018
Born in the United States, Chen Feiyu had studied at Tabor Academy, a private boarding school in Massachusetts. He is now studying at Beijing Film Academy.
While netizens had raised doubt about Chen Feiyu’s alleged dual citizenship earlier, the actor’s statement reiterated that China does not allow dual nationality. The statement mentioned that in 2018, the actor has already started preparations to renounce his American citizenship, and has gone through a lengthy process of waiting up until now.
Gaining attention with his clean good boy looks and famous family background, Chen Feiyu had guest-starred in Chen Kaige’s movie Sacrifice <趙氏孤兒> as early as 2010. He has appeared in web drama Ever Night <將夜>, Immortality <皓衣行>, Gold Panning <淘金> and other films in recent years.
Chen Feiyu is also known for being a rumored item with Ouyang Nana (歐陽娜娜). The two had first met on the set of 2017 film Secret Fruit <秘果>, and were spotted dating in Paris, and shared many matching jackets and accessories.
