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.

Versatile, Zhang has impressive resumes in China and Hong Kong.
