Meng Meiqi Net Worth, Measurements, Birthday, Height, weight, Age, Family Facts & Life Story
Meng Meiqi is a Chinese actress who has appeared in a number of Hollywood films. She was only a toddler when she appeared in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, playing Yeoman. However, her role did not come until the following year when she appeared in the second installment of that film as Sulu. It was then that she became one of the most famous Chinese-American actors in Hollywood.
In the late 1980s, Meng Meiqi’s star was on the rise. She appeared in a number of successful Chinese-language films such as Come See What I Do, Romance, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Mingshy (Cantonese for short), and Mystic River. Additionally, she went on to star in the hit Kung Mangarap Ka’s (Cantonese for short) along with Chow Yun Nang. All of this work helped make her one of the best known Chinese Americans of her time.
On the set of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, however, things got hectic between her acting career and her studies in traditional Chinese medicine. Her fans began to wonder if the actress would ever feature in a movie centered on the martial arts. In the fall of 2023, her agent suggested that she take a break from acting to do a study of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. As luck would have it, just before Halloween, the actor was cast as part of another live action/horror movie entitled The Witch’s Pupil.

It was not long after her first appearance in that film that fans had their fingers crossed that Meng Meiqi might release a new film in the fall of 2023. However, the project fizzled out. As with Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, it was rumored that Meiqi wanted to do a western version of The Witch’s Pupil, but her agents claimed that the project was simply too expensive for her at this point in her career. No further details were given. It is possible, though, that Meiqi could produce an entire franchise of Chinese Opera films, the sort of franchise that Studio Canclairs would turn into if they produced The Witch’s Pupil. Or, she could simply continue to focus on her acting career.
One Chinese musical group that will definitely be back for another installment of their popular “Red Packet” series will be the Evening Red Ensemble. The daughter of an ethnic Chinese couple who had defected to Australia, the girl group has always done a great job of interpreting the lyrics of the original songs. If Meiqi can create a theme song that captures the charm and mystique of this heritage Chinese musical tradition, then it will be a winner for any Chinese-Indian artist working on a musical about it. “Red Packet” singer Wang Xiaoming will also be back for another go around in “Red Packet 2.”
Whether or not Meiqi can successfully produce 101 girl group hits, it is clear that she has already captured the attention of both Western and Chinese audiences alike. Her songs are popular not only with the mainland Chinese but also with the Taiwanese and Hong Kong populace. This success has also made Meiqi a name well known among the likes of Lin and Andy Ng, two well-regarded Chinese songwriters. Now, she just needs to come up with a theme song to bring all these songs to life.
