Shu Qi (born 16 April 1976 / birth name Lin Li-Hui) is an internationally known model and actress and very popular and recognized in Asia and Europe. She has appeared on over 100 magazine covers and has acted in numerous films, produced primarily in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia. She is virtually unknown in North America and realized some popularity in The Transporter film. Although some of the critics and supporters of the movie were rather harsh on her performance in The Transporter film this was mostly due to the language barrier(s) on the set on and it proved difficult for Jason Statham and other actors to accomodate her inability to speak English. Prior to filming The Transporter both Shu Qi and Francois Berleand were working with language coaches to ensure that they both had the ability to speak the lines in the script. The producers cut Shu Qi's lines down to very short sentences and the language coaches taught her exactly how to speak the lines, not how to speak English. In interviews, Shu Qi has stated that she had a very difficult time interacting with Jason Statham during the filming of The Transporter because of the language barrier.....quote: "working with Jason was like a rooster and duck trying to communicate all day".
Note: Shu Qi was working with Corey Yuen on an action movie in Hong Kong just prior to The Transporter and the film (So Close) has some great action sequences that are very similar to Jason's action scenes in The Transporter. See YouTube link below to watch a 6 minute version of Shu Qi in the film "So Close".....directed by Corey Yuen. Both Shu Qi and Corey Yuen traveled to France immediatly after shooting "So Close" to begin shooting The Transporter. The film (So Close) was produced by Sony China and was a Chinese version of "Charlies Angels".
