King Of Kung Fu: An interview with rising female star Xu Huihui (Jade)
Posted November 19, 2012 by kingofkungfu in Features
Xu Huihui is relatively new to the Kung Fu world, recently starring in the Chinese TV Series ‘The Legend of Wing Chun’, she as also landed a part in the upcoming movie ‘Tai Chi Hero’, along side Tony Leung, Yuen Biao and many more.
Xu Huihui was born on the 9th February 1986, she started learning in the art of Wu Shu at just the young age of 6 under her teacher and mother Xu Guan Guan. At the age of 9 she left China and went to live in Italy, not long after she won her first tournament and since that day, she as never looked back winning many tournaments and trophies along the way including National and International tournaments.
Her skills and life long practice of the Martial Arts have got her great roles so far and i feel she will only get better and better in the years to come and expect to see many movies from her. Her jump from the winner-podium to the movie screen is therefore the logical continuation of her dream, to live the life of an artist and to promote the tradition of the Chinese martial arts throughout the whole world!
So i would like to say thank you to Xu Huihui for agreeing to this interview and hope you enjoy what she as to say.
1.When did you first learn you wanted to study and compete in martial arts?
I was 6 years old when I was introduced to the Chinese martial arts. My mother Xu Guanguan, a professional athlete
and coach herself brought me into it and coached me until I retired from competition in 2009.
I never planned or were forced to go for competitions, it developed very naturally. I guess that’s the reason for my success.
2.Whats been your favorite movie/tv series you have worked on so far?
Tai Chi Zero
3.Can you tell us about your character in the upcoming movie Tai Chi Hero?
I am playing Sister Mahjong, one of the strongest members of the Chen Clan and obviously a master of Mahjong as well.
4.What was it like working with a legend Yuen Biao in The Legend Of Wing Chun?
It was a great pleasure. He is a Kungfu Movie Legend and to see him live in action
was simply awesome. He is still very agile and besides his skills, he is a very kind person.
5.If you could star in any remake, which one would it be and why?
I’d like to play a heroine in ancient chinese times.
A remake of ‘Once upon a time in China’ with a female version of Wong Fei Hung would be nice.
6.Who are your kung fu idols?
Many artists have been an inspiration, but the most important is my mother.
7.If you could work with anyone, male and female who would you choose?
I’d like to work with Quentin Tarantino. I love his style and he has Italian roots, so I guess it would be great working with him.
8.What future movies can we expect to see you involved with?
Some projects are in the planning, but I can’t tell much about it by now. Stay tuned!
o you have a dream project and what would it involve, weather it
would be movies or in real life?
My dream project is to have a happy and healthy life.
10.Do you have a message for your fans around the world and here on
Asian Movie Pulse?
I want to thank all my fans for their support and I hope they will continue supporting me and my projects in the future.
