Biography[edit]

Happy Camp, 2009. Xie Na is third from the right.

Prior to becoming a host, Xie Na extended her career by being an actress. She starred in many movies, TV series and also stage productions. In 2006, she also released her autobiography Na Shi Yi Zhen Feng(Chinese:娜是一阵疯).[4] In 2008, her second book "Na Xie Nian Hua".(Chinese:娜写年华)also came onto the market.[5]
This year, 2008, is a milestone in Xie Na's career. Ten years ago, Xie Na, as an 18-year-old North Drifter, went to Beijing to seek her fortune all by herself. Ten years later, she was at the peak of her career. In addition, Xie Na signed a contract with Huayi Brothers Musical Record Company in 2006. At the end of 2006, she launched her debut album 'Bo Luo Bo Luo Mi' (Chinese:菠萝菠萝蜜)[6]

Offscreen Life[edit]

Personal life[edit]

On 26 September 2011, Xie Na was married to Zhang Jie, a singer from China. Their wedding is set in Shangri-La County, Diqing in Yunnan(Chinese:云南迪庆州香格里拉).Shangri-La is famous for its natural scenery and is called "somewhere closest to paradise".[7] In the wedding site, popular Chinese hosts like He Jiong, Li Weijia, Du Haitao, Wu Xin from Happy Camp, as well as actors like Wu Qilong, Su Youpeng, Zhao Benshan and so on.[8]

Love Experience[edit]

The puppy love in Xie Na's adolescence stage is mysterious and indeterminate, so this part will be omitted. The love experience here means the love story of Xie Na since she became a public figure. In short, there are two men involved--Liu Ye and Zhang Jie.

Liu Ye, was the first man Xie Na fell in love with when she came to Beijing. At that time, Xie Na was still a utility cast and nobody. It was the Chinese TV series Street of Happiness in 2000 that familiarized Xie Na and Liu Ye. In this series, Liu Ye was the protagonist while Xie Na just acted an insignificant character. During the process of making the series, Xie Na and Liu Ye treated each other like normal friends. Until one day, Liu Ye broke the window paper and they started a romantic relationship. The relationship went on smoothly as Liu Ye grew more and more famous. In the 38th Golden Horse Film Festival and Awards,[9] Liu Ye won the Best Leading Actor because of the excellent acting skill in Lanyu. But this sudden fame gave Xie Na much pressure, like a label of Liu Ye’s girlfriend was attached to her. Later, they relationship drifted apart as from 2004, Xie Na’s career began to prosper. Liu Ye once said in an interview: “If Xie Na is willing to be my wife, I won’t hesitate to marry her in a day.” The words were still there but they broke up after 6-year relationship.
[10] The end of the romantic relationship tortured Xie Na for a long time until she ran into Zhang Jie in a TV reality show- Super Boy, which was organized by Hunan Satellite Television in 2007. Xie Na was the hostess of the 2007 Super Boy while Zhang Jie was just a participant of it . On 6 July 2007, after Zhang Jie won the 4 to 3 knockoff round, he thanked Xie Na in front of the public. Gossip of them had the wings from then. Their relationship was vague and fogged at that time. In 2008, Zhang Jie released an album called The Day After Tomorrow. In the MV of the title track, Xie Na and Zhang Jie acted as a couple who were facing a dilemma but finally overcame it. This is one of the milestone in their love story. Their relationship finally came onto the surface in 2009 when Zhang Jie admitted it on the red carpet of Baidu Recreation Boiling Point. Although there were still many people who held a critical attitude towards their love, they responded to these consensus by action. On 5 May 2011, Xie Na and Zhang Jie registered their marriage in Chengdu. Shortly after, they held their wedding ceremony in Yunnan (Chinese: 云南迪庆州香格里拉) on 26 September 2011.

Commercial Activity[edit]

More and more stars begin to have their own brand, including Xie Na. On 15 October 2010, Xie Na founded her personal brand “HUANXING”.[11] There is a story behind the brand. The Happy Family always pronounce the word “fashion” with a Hunan accent, making the word sounds like “Huashion”. Xie Na herself uses this twisted pronunciation most frequently and makes the pronunciation “Huashion” a fashion. So when she was preparing for the business, she chose “HUANXING” as its brand name. The business is a success through varied ways of marketing. First, Xie Na takes many photos of the clothes and uploads them onto the Twitter. At the same time, many popular stars like Zhang Jie, He Jiong, Su Xing, Cao Ying backs Xie Na by wearing clothes of her brand to attend different activities. In this way, increasing number of people get to know the brand. To make the commodities more available, Xie Na opened a flagship store in Taobao Mall online.
