Actress and series highlight women’s rights and personal power
Award winning Chinese actress and producer Xiaoqing Liu stars in Empress, the new American series about the formidable 7th and 8th century Empress Wu Zetian, the only reigning Empress in China’s 4,000 year history. This is Liu’s fifth rendition of the Empress role, and who better to play it than the actress Xiaoqing Liu who is considered a living treasure in China. As she informed President Obama when they met, “in China everybody knows you, but everybody loves me.” American audiences will soon be under Liu’s spell.
Known for her ageless beauty and commanding presence, the Chinese actress dazzles at 61. Liu will join forces with Game of Thrones executive producer Christopher Newman; Starlight Media; and Kia Jam, CEO of K.Jam Media on the new American TV series Empress airing in late 2018.
