Huang Shengyi (born February 11, 1983), also known as Eva Huang, is a Chinese actress and singer.


Huang was born and raised in Shanghai. Her father was educated in the United States and lived there in the early 1990s, while her mother worked as an editor in a newspaper agency in Shanghai. She graduated from the Beijing Film Academy in 2001.


Eva Huang rose to fame after starring in Stephen Chow's action comedy film Kung Fu Hustle (2004).[1] In August the following year, she ended her contract with Chow's company after appearing in a magazine photo shoot without their consent.[1][2]

Huang then starred in Dragon Squad (2005), which received critical acclaim and was among the first films to be listed in the permanent collection by the National Museum of China.[3]

Starting in 2006, Huang worked with China Juli Group on a number of television series, including Fairy Couple (2007) and The Shadow of Empress Wu (2007). Fairy Couple was the highest rated drama of the year, and led to increased recognition for Huang.[4] She also starred in the television adaptation of Louis Cha's novel Sword Stained with Royal Blood.[5]

In 2009, Huang became the CEO of China Juli Group's Entertainment Media Co., Ltd, drawing a six-figure salary annually.[6] The same year, she made her Hollywood film debut in Race to Witch Mountain.

Huang starred alongside Jet Li and Raymond Lam in The Sorcerer and the White Snake (2011) where she played the White Snake Demon.[7] She then starred in The Locked Door (2012), a film which tells about the life story of a girl from noble family, who was raped at young age.[8] The film won the Best Feature at the Monaco Charity Film Festival.[9]

Huang won the Best Actress award at the Huading Awards for her performance in Iceman co-starring Donnie Yen.[10]
