Top Beautiful Photos of Jing Tian 2018
Jing Tian (Chinese: 景甜, born 21 July 1988) is a Chinese actress. She is known for her roles in war epic The Warring States (2011) and the action films Special ID and Police Story 2013 (both in 2013). She has had prominent roles in three Legendary Pictures films, The Great Wall (2016), Kong: Skull Island (2017), and Pacific Rim Uprising (2018). Jing gained renewed attention for her acting in the historical drama The Glory of Tang Dynasty (2017). She graduated from the Beijing Dance Academy and Beijing Film Academy.
In the last few years, 28-year-old starlet Jing Tian has ascended with unusual speed into the white-hot center of China’s entertainment world. After studying at both the Beijing Dance Academy and the Beijing Film Academy, both reliable feeders into China’s show business ecosystem, she spent relatively little time working her way up via supporting roles and television series before finding herself thrust into the spotlight alongside stars like Sun Honglei, Jackie Chan, and Chow Yun-Fat.
When Legendary Entertainment began production on its megabudget US-China co-production, The Great Wall, Jing was chosen to star opposite Matt Damon as a woman warrior commanding a vast army against fearsome supernatural monsters. Evidently, someone at the studio liked what they saw: before the film was finished, Jing was slotted into Legendary’s blockbuster titles, Pacific Rim: Uprising and the just-released Kong: Skull Island, immediately lifting her to heights of international visibility above Tang Wei, Fan Bingbing, Zhou Xun or nearly any of China’s other well-established superstar “Heavenly Queens.”
Since one of the main things Hollywood producers look for in a crossover superstar is fluent English, we can say with near certainty on the basis of her stilted delivery in The Great Wall that Jing’s elocution is not a factor in her getting Hollywood gigs. Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the director of Kong: Skull Island recently told the Singapore Straits Times that working with Jing was difficult in large part because of her limited English, and that her role in the film had to undergo significant cuts.
