Zhang Jingchu Plays CIA Agent in “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”

Looking exquisite in an elegant black dress, Chinese actress Zhang Jingchu (张静初) attended a jewelry function in Beijing yesterday. Jingchu just had her Hollywood debut in the blockbuster Mission: Impossible — Rouge Nation, which was released in North America on July 31. The fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible film franchise, the movie also stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, and Simon Pegg.

Jingchu, who plays the CIA agent “Lauren” in the film, had a two-second appearance in the North American release. In the brief scene, Jingchu was seen wearing professional clothes and stood next to Jeremy Renner inside a CIA situation room. On working with Tom Cruise and Hollywood for the first time, she shared, “It’s an unforgettable and interesting experience, but it wasn’t anything outstanding, because I feel that Chinese films and productions are just as good.”

The actress then revealed that she is currently shooting epic Chinese science fiction film The Three-Body Problem <三体>, a movie adaptation of the best-selling book of the same name written by Liu Cixin (刘慈欣). The movie, which is also produced by Liu Cixin, is set during the Cultural Revolution, and tells the story about a species of alien invading earth to save themselves from extinction.

Asking if Jingchu will be making an appearance in any Chinese reality shows like many of her colleagues, she said, “I have no plans to do that for now.”

Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation will be released in Hong Kong on August 13 and Mainland China on September 8.

      It seems like Hollywood can ever accommodate 1 chinese actress at a time. First Zhang ziyi, now her successor Zhang jingchu.

      Fan Bing Bing or Li Bing Bing doesn’t count. They have no significant part in the movies they were in, especially FBB.

      Japanese actors : 2

      Japanese actresses : more than 1

      Other Chinese actresses from other countries : a few

      Chinese actors : some

          @kolo It’s a start. Someone gotta be the asian girl but then hollywood doesn’t know the difference between a japanese, a korean and a chinese. As long as can speak decent english. Anyway it is a start somewhere. A high profile role. I heard this movie is doing great.

          Just don’t marry Tom Cruise.

      How is appearing for 2 seconds with no dialogue be news worthy??? Idk who she is… is she really big in China? Her answer makes her sound snobbish and ungrateful. You can praise China without jabbing Hollywood. I’m not saying Hollywood is necessarily better, but it is bigger, more renounced and prestige. Or else you wouldn’t get this news article written about you for 2 seconds of screentime. Be poise lady! It could be translation issue too.

        She’s just being truthful that this role is nothing special. Saying this is a big Hollywood breakthrough would only invite ridicule.

        Incidentally, she had more screen time in another Hollywood film years ago with Jackie Chan in one of the Rush Hour sequels.

          @msxie0714 From this article, she’s not saying about her role/character. She’s referencing the filming experience which include filming under Hollywood producer with Hollywood helpers and big name actors. It just sounds like a slap on Hollywood face when she or her agency uses Hollywood as a stepping stone to fame but then turn around to say Hollywood isn’t special.

          Then again, Like I said, it could be lost in translation. She might had meant and said about her role and the translation is off. I’m basing my opinion and interpretation on what’s writing here on this english article.

          why does she have to be extra deferential to Hollywood which has a history of slapping the faces of Asian actors/actresses? Bruce Lee couldn’t even get hired for the role of a Chinese monk, a major role that went to David Carradine.

          @msxie0714 BC she’s essentially using the Hollywood platform to gain more fame. HW is deemed to be more prestige entertainment circle. Is HW flawless? No. Is HW fair? No. But entertainers strive to be in HW. You’re in the “it” or make it “big” if you’re in HW. It just makes her sound like biting the hand that feeding her in this article.

          the hand that feeds her is the Chinese film industry. HW’s just a sideshow.Do you honestly think she’ll make it in HW?

          @msxie0714 I don’t disagree that Chinese Film groomed and nurtured her. Also I don’t know if she’ll make it or not. Even if it’s most likely she won’t, it doesn’t erase the fact that she is using HW as a stepping stone and recognition of her “status”. Or else there wouldn’t be an article written about her and boasting her 2 seconds appearance on a HW film.

          So to use something and turn around saying it’s not all cracked up to be seem ungrateful IMO.
