Sparks fly when China's “Robert Downey Jr” meets China's “Angelina Jolie”
Last year, when British Media Telegraph interviewed Yao Chen, the leading actress in Divorce Lawyer, it published an article on “meet China's answer to Angelina Jolie.”
As one of the most powerful social influencer, Yao has 71 million followers on Weibo (China’s version of Twitter) more than the population of Britain.The second thing you notice is her heart-shaped face, tapering to her wide mouth. Her beauty might best be described as extraterrestrial. It’s no surprise that four years ago she was approached by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to be its Goodwill Ambassador in China, à la Angelina Jolie (who Yao says was one of the reasons she was inspired to accept the role).
Well, in Divorce Lawyer, Yao met with Chinese “Robert Downey Jr”, Wu Xiubo–a stylish uncle type. Sina called him “A different kind of actor”, 46 year old, looks sharp in his slim-fit suits and vintage coiffure, and speaks gently with a shy smile. Last year, he was nominated for an International Emmy Award for Best Actor.
