Fala Chen Stars in “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire”

After Fala Chen (陳法拉) got married to French IT businessman Emmanuel Straschnov in 2019, she gave birth to her daughter in 2021. She currently resides in the United States and is juggling her role as a mother and exciting opportunities in Hollywood. Fala’s latest movie is Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, which will release on March 29, 2024.

After leaving TVB, Fala obtained a master’s degree in acting from Juilliard in 2018. Signing with an American talent agency, Fala landed a role in HBO drama The Undoing alongside Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. Fala then made her official Hollywood movie debut in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, further propelling her recognition overseas. She was then cast in HBO drama Irma Vep, where she played actress Cynthia Keng.

Not slowing down, Fala followed up with Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire in a major supporting role alongside Rebecca Hall and Kaylee Hottle. In the latest trailer, Fala appeared on screen for a split second in her “fall goddess” ensemble. Although the trailer mainly showcased the roars of Godzilla and Kong, netizens are eager to see more of Fala’s screen time in the upcoming film.

  1. Wow!………A major supporting role and a few minutes or few seconds of screen time……..She is sure moving up the Hollywood ladder.

  2. It’s a shame she has not had more chances in Hollywood. I really respected that she left the TVB comfort zone and pursued studies to improve her acting. A decision most actresses probably think is not worth bothering at 30.

  3. She has been doing guest appearances IMHO alongside big actors or in big movies but she has yet to become a force in Hollywood. One would argue that Fan Bing Bing is better known in Hollywood due to her red carpet appearances, endorsements, and powerhouse acting in Japan and Korea and nominations in Cannes. Most of Fala’s endorsements were grandfathered in from her TVB/Asian entertainment days.

  4. Have to agree with everyone’s comment Fala is more like an extra if anything…and whatever agency she signed with is doing her wrong, because you see all these new upcoming Asian stars in these Asian shows that she could have participated in…

    1. To be fair though, she really isn’t a good actor. Too stiff. Even with training from Juilliard. Acting and the arts is unfortunately something that truly requires talent. Sometimes no matter how hard you work, if you lack natural talent, you don’t excel. But I do agree with you that perhaps her management/agent is not the best because with the lack of Asian American artists in Hollywood, her talent or lack of, shouldn’t limit her opportunities for a more beefy Asian role. Problem is, I think she thinks that because she is an A-list actor in HK, and with her masters in Juilliard, she belongs in top Hollywood productions, rather than a smaller film and play lead. Can you imagine her acting as Ali Wong in Beef? Or taking any of Awkwafina’s roles? She always gives me an air of “I’m better than that” so I think she prefers to play small roles in big films than big roles in small films. At least she gets to work among the biggest stars and I think that makes her feel like she’s part of the A-listers.
