Biography

Zhang Ziyi was born in Beijing where very early on she entered the Dance Academy, before studying at the Central Drama College. Revealed by Zhang Yimou in The Road Home (1998), she delivered a critically-acclaimed performance in Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Out of Competition at Cannes, 2000). In 2003, she starred in Zhang Yimou's Hero (2002) and Lou Ye's Purple Butterfly (Competition, 2003).
