Jackie Chan has come forward to sing the praises of his Forbidden CoStar Yifei Lui (Liu Yi Fei in the Chinese reference) and predicts she will be a big star in Hollywood.
Liu Yi Fei has recently signed a contract with a Hollywood management company, Jackie Chan predicts that Liu Yi Fei has a successful career ahead of her, “Liu Yi Fei is very well educated, she can speak both English and Japanese fluently, she is also young and beautiful. When Chinese actresses try to go international, only a few are successful. I can see Liu Yi Fei as Gong Li’s successor to become the next Hollywood superstar.”
Hollywood will get their first real taste of Yifei when Forbidden Kingdom comes out (which came out yesterday in China) on the 18th of April.
Let’s hope Jackie is right.
