Huang Biren’s biography in the movie industry was remarkable because her mother was a well known communist activist. Huang Biren was forced to leave school after the mid-sixties because she was arrested for criticizing the military junta leader General Yiu Kit Siang. In an attempt to save herself from further punishment, Huang Biren decided to become a vegetarian. She avoided meats and dairy products during this time. Although Huang Biren was able to produce some good films during the eighties, her career was hit by the collapse of the film industry in the early nineteen nineties.
Huang Biren was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in the same year as Chauffeur (of Love Actually fame) and won the award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. In the same year, she was nominated for the same award for her role in Mulan, which was made by Disney. She also received another nomination for her role in Kung Mangarap Ka’s Kung Fu: The Fist of Shaolin.
Huang Biren was nominated again for an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her role in the film Ancient Chinese Mysteries. This time, Huang Biren was nominated for the award for Best Actress in a Leading Role in the movie King Kong. She also received another Oscar nomination for her role as Lungsheng in the award winning movie Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
Huang Biren now has a film franchise of her own. Her last major release was the action-thriller “Mu Lan” (which translates to “Lion”) in China. Her most recent project is the action-thriller “Zhang Min Mui Lao”, which translates to “The Doll’s House”. Hopefully we will see some more of Huang Biren in the near future.
