Chinese Actress Zhang Jingchu Accepts ‘Mission’ With Tom Cruise (EXCLUSIVE)

Chinese actress Zhang Jingchu has joined the cast of action thriller “Mission: Impossible 5,” in a major role opposite Tom Cruise.

Zhang is currently shooting in the U.K. on the Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Bad Robot production. Her role is supposedly being kept secret as it is integral to a major plot twist. Chinese fans have spotted her out shopping in London, but she has not communicated why she is in the British capital.

Zhang, who trained as a director and speaks fluent English, previously appeared in “Rush Hour 3” and Florian Gallenberger’s China-set “City of War: The John Rabe Story” and joins a growing list of Chinese leading ladies who are making headway in Hollywood.

Versatile, Zhang has impressive resumes in China and Hong Kong. In China she starred in Feng Xiaogang’s blockbuster drama “Aftershock” having made early career impressions in “Peacock” and “Tsui Hark’s “7 Swords.” In Hong Kong she has worked with Dante Lam on “Beast Stalker,” Ann Hui on “Night and Fog” and Felix Chong and Alan Mak on “Overheard.”

Zhang Jingchu is managed by Mimi Fu Xin and Andrew Ooi at Echelon Talent, and represented by Gersh.
