Chinese actress Fan Bingbing makes her U.S. movie debut as fan favorite X-Men character Blink. Blink is not an Asian character in the comic books, but producers admired Fan enough to cast her as the teleporting mutant.
In China, Fan first gained stardom in the 90s through television acting, which led to movies and various other projects. X-Men: Days of Future Past marks Fan’s first appearance in a film released in the United States.
Will Fan manage to impress English-speaking audiences and do more stateside film roles? Or will Fan’s lack of fluent English limit her from further Hollywood projects?
