Celina Jade (born June 10, 1985), is a Chinese American actress, model, and singer who worked in Hollywood films.
Jade played the lead role in her first film, Legendary Assassin. She also starred in Love Connected, and All's Well Ends Well; TV shows like Dolce Vita, Jade Solid Gold; and, regular appearances across TV channels in China including CCTV, Hunan TV, and CETV. There after, she landed her first role in a U.S. movie, The Man with the Iron Fists, as directed by the RZA. During the same year, she lent her voice as a character in the Square Enix game Sleeping Dogs. She also began filming her first web series, Wish Upon a Star, as lead actress alongside Asian superstar Peter Ho. This coincided with her first role in the CW network series Arrow, where she plays the role of Shado. She appeared in six episodes in the first season and will be continuing her role in upcoming episodes.
At age 14, Jade won an Asia-wide singing competition, which led to a record deal with Japanese producer, Tetsuya Komuro. Together, they released two EPs, Good News Bad News and 'Kwong Ying Zi Gan'. In July, 2000, she performed alongside Namie Amuro at the G8 Summit in Okinawa, Japan for the World Leaders. At age 15, she had her first No. 1 hit with the song, "Kwong Ying Zi Gan" in Taiwan. She has since then been featured in multiple ad campaigns for Marks & Spencer, Cathay Pacific, Motorola and Ponds globally.
Jade signed with music mogul Paco Wong (EMI) in 2007. She also sang the theme song for Legendary Assassin, "Ceng Jing Xin Teng", which was performed live on TV and radio stations across Asia. In 2009, she left Golden Typhoon (EMI) and signed with Terry McBride, CEO of Nettwerk Music Group (the force behind Avril Lavigne, Sarah McLachlan, Dido). In late 2012, Jade independently released her first self-written album across the internet.
