The star and producer of her new TV show, Fan Bingbing is a force to be reckoned with

With over 40 films under her belt, Chinese actress Fan Bingbing is a bonafide household name in her own country; but it was her role as Blink in X-Men: Days of Future Past that catapulted her to international stardom. And with a string of movies in the pipeline — not to mention show-stealing red carpet appearances at this year's Met Gala and Cannes Film Festival – her star will only continue to rise.

But don't be fooled by those enchanting doe-eyes and smooth porcelain skin, Fan has more to offer than just a pretty face. The 33-year old is a triple threat: she is an accomplished actress, television producer and singer. However, amidst the flurry of success, Fan stays down to earth: "I'm actually very, very willing to be goofy and act a little childish," she said in an interview with F*** Magazine. Bless.

If you've been drawn in like we have, you can catch Fan in her new TV drama, The Empress of China
