Xu Jiao was born in 1978 in Fujian province in China. Her screen name was Xu Wu Jie. She is now an award winning actress in mainland China. Her biography at the Chinese Film Festival indicated that her parents were farmers and that she grew up on a small ranch in the hills. When she was about eleven years old, her family moved to the city of Ningbo.
Xu Jiao first became interested in acting when she was about twenty years old and was cast in a local drama as a main character. In her audition, her father felt that she lacked direction and wanted to direct her, which was a bit of a disappointment to her since she had never done anything like that before. However, the director gave her a script to read and provided some direction, which helped to prepare her for her career as an actress in China. She did not have a great deal of experience in acting, but she was able to develop her skills in the script that was given to her.
The late nineteen seventies saw Xu Jiao makes her first trip to Hollywood. She had some minor roles in some low budget movies that were made in Hong Kong, but these did not help her career. In the late eighties, however, she was introduced to American cinema by Bill Murray. They became good friends and the two of them went on to have a number of films together. At the time of their break up in the nineties, Murray proposed to her and the two of them decided to get married.

Xu Jiao’s life then took a turn for the worse. She was diagnosed with lung cancer and she lost her ability to speak clearly. Fortunately, doctors were able to remove a portion of her vocal chords and she was able to communicate again. While this might not sound like much, it marked a big change for Xu Jiao who was now a Chinese film actress working in Hollywood.
Xu Jiao has always been able to portray different kinds of roles in her movies and she has managed to raise the eyebrows of film critics over the years. One of the most difficult films to come out in recent years is the movie “Mu Lan” which was directed by Chinese superstar Zhang Yike. The movie was supposed to be a comedy, but instead became a serious drama about a young girl who was also a talented actress in her own right. Her net worth has risen dramatically because of this film.
In the end, it was Su Shen and Chen Kaifeng who brought Xu Jiao to stardom. Although there were many factors that led to their success, one of the main contributing factors was their association with Hollywood. Both of them first appeared on Chinese TV shows where they gained the attention of the audience. Then they appeared in local cinema and gained further popularity. Today, they are both well-established stars in the field of Chinese cinema and have made a name for themselves as professional actors. Whether it was their association with Hollywood or their own artistic talents, these two stars have definitely made it big in China and are enjoying great fame and fortune in their home country.
