Known as "Fairy Sister" by the public, Liu starred on several TV shows in the mid-2000s and has acted in movies alongside Jackie Chan and Jet Li. After a long worldwide search for the flawless actress to take on the colossal role, Disney has finally announced that the leading lady for the upcoming live-action Mulan film is none other than Chinese actress Liu Yifei!
The casting process reportedly involved a year-long worldwide search, during which nearly 1000 actresses auditioned for the role of Hua Mulan, who posed as a man in order to take her father's place in the army in fifth-century China.
The 30-year-old (who also goes by the name Crystal Liu) hails from the Wuhan, Hubei, province of China, but is fluent in English from time spent living in Queens, NY, during part of her childhood. A master of the regal red carpet look, she regularly chooses high-drama pieces that highlight her delicate beauty. Disney was under pressure to make the correct casting choice due to cultural accuracy and they focused on locally ethnically Chinese young women to play Hua Mulan.
