Lin Zhi became a well known figure in both Mandarin and Cantonese culture for her work as an actress in both Hollywood films and television shows. She began her career in movies as a teenager, where she starred alongside Chow Yun-fat in the hit movie Dumb and Dumber. She went on to appear in a number of other award winning movies including Romance Heart, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and Eternal Love. After appearing in a string of well-received films, she went on to star in her own series, Kung Fu Panda, which was one of the best selling Chinese animated films of all time. Her role in the Kung Fu Panda film set the stage for her later successes in both Hollywood and Taiwanese television.
Because of her association with popular Chinese and Asian television stars, Chen Sisi’s name became synonymous with good fortune for many of those who wished to acquire wealth and fame through traditional means. Chen Sisi was sometimes referred to as the Yang Mi, which means “the woman who dreams of becoming a star”. However, it was not necessarily because of her gender that she was able to obtain this position of power. Instead, it was because of the role that she played in the Kung Fu Panda film franchise that elevated her status from merely actress to singing, performing, and acting sensation. Her career spanned over five decades, during which she was nominated for Academy Awards and won multiple awards for her work in television, movies, and television shows.
Chen Sisi is perhaps best recognized today for her long-running love story between American businessman Jack Jackie and Chinese actress Chen Xian. The two first became lovers while they were attending the University of Alabama. They married in returns to another couple who had also been in their lives at the university. When Chen Xian gave birth to their first child, Jackie Chan required that she be replaced by an American film director for the movie that would eventually become Kung Fu Panda. Jackie Chan was so moved by the idea of using his own daughter in the film that he signed up with Chen Sisi and brought her to Los Angeles where the two began to work together.
Today, Chen Sisi is known to most people as the singer and actress behind the hit internet-based internet series, Powerpuff Girls. She is a main character in the show, which is currently part of a wide cast of cartoons that is paralegally popular in both Asia and America. The show is a joint project between Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, and was created as an English-language update to the original Japanese cartoon hit of the same name. Aside from her starring role as the lead of the show, Chen Sisi is also known to make cameos throughout the show, as well as other colorful supporting characters.
