When she was studying at the Taipei National University of the Arts, Chen was spotted by Edward Yang when he walked by her acting class. She then appeared in two of Yang's films. After her performance in A Confucian Confusion, which was premiered in the competition section of the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, she decided to go to New York City to study performing arts. She graduated from the Educational Theatre master's program in the Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions at New York University.

After she returned to Taiwan, she had starring roles in many of Tsai Ming-liang's films. She also appeared in Lin Cheng-sheng's Sweet Degeneration (1997), which was entered into the 48th Berlin International Film Festival.[2] In 2014, she won the Best Actress award at the Golden Horse Film Festival for her performance in Exit.[3]
