Fan Bingbing (born 16 September 1981) is a Chinese actress, television producer and pop singer.
Fan rose to fame in East Asia in 1998–1999 with the mega-hit TV series My Fair Princess. In 2003, she starred in Cell Phone, which became the highest-grossing Chinese film of the year, and received critical acclaim at the Hundred Flowers Award. Since then, she has starred in many films, most notably The Matrimony (2007), Lost in Beijing (2007), Buddha Mountain (2011) and Double Xposure (2012), where she received awards from prestigious award ceremonies such as the Golden Horse Film Festival and Awards, Eurasia International Film Festival, Tokyo International Film Festival, Beijing College Student Film Festival and Huading Awards. Fan has also participated in many foreign-language films, such as the French film Stretch (2011), the Korean film My Way (2011) and the Hollywood blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
Fan topped the Forbes China Celebrity 100 list in 2013, 2014 and 2015, after ranking in the top 10 every year since 2006. She is one of the highest-paid actresses in the world and has also been called a fashion icon due to frequent appearances on the red carpet, movie premieres, and fashion shows.
Fan debuted in the television series Powerful Woman and played minor roles for two years, before she rose to stardom in 1999 for her supporting role as Jin Suo in the first two seasons of the Chinese television series My Fair Princess, which were adapted from Taiwanese writer Chiung Yao's story. She was recommended by Taiwanese actress Leanne Liu to join the cast of My Fair Princess. The comedic period drama enjoyed widespread success and swept the TV ratings in Taiwan, mainland China, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asian countries such as Singapore and Vietnam; Fan became a household name in Asia for her work in the series. After that, Fan signed an eight-year contract with Chiung Yao's company, which produced My Fair Princess. However, as the company had yet to establish any branches in mainland China, many mainland Chinese television advertising firms had to make calls to Taiwan for negotiations, resulting in a waste of time and effort. When Fan and her mother wanted to end the contract, Chiung Yao's company asked for ¥1 million in compensation, but eventually the court ordered Fan to pay ¥200,000 because the contract was illegal due to her age.
In 2000, Fan joined a company owned by Wang Jinghua, a well-known artists manager in Mainland China. At the end of 2000, Wang became the general manager of Huayi Brothers, so Fan followed Wang and signed a six-year contract with Huayi. During her time with Huayi, Fan starred in many television series, such as Young Justice Bao II (2001), Red Poppies (2002), adapted from the Mao Dun Literature Prize novel, and The Proud Twins (2005), adapted from Gu Long's novel Juedai Shuangjiao. From 1999 to 2002, Fan acted in a total of 17 TV series.
Fan also acted in many films. In 2003, she starred in Feng Xiaogang's Cell Phone, which became the highest grossing film of the year in China. Fan won a Best Actress Award at the 27th Hundred Flowers Awards, a Best Supporting Actress nomination from the 24th Golden Rooster Awards and an Outstanding New Actress nomination at the 10th Huabiao Awards. She also appeared in The Lion Roars (2002), The Twins Effect II (2004), A Chinese Tall Story (2005), and A Battle of Wits (2006). She received a Golden Bauhinia Awards nomination for her role in A Battle of Wits.
Fan released her first album, Just Begun in 2005. She worked with many renowned music producers and composers in order to incorporate a wide variety of genres into the album. In 2006, Forbes China gave its most prized award, the Star of the Year, to Fan for her popularity, high press coverage, and website hits throughout that year.
Regarding her six-year cooperation with Huayi Brothers, Fan said,
"Huayi gave me a lot of opportunities. It has a very good team and the spirit of cooperation. I also tried my best. The six years really are a non-stop time. In the company, everyone calls me Astro Boy. I did the most works, and I am the person who able to endure the most hardship. I am 25 years old now, from 25 years old to 30 years old, I think that whatever life will experience or career will confront, the period is a very important juncture, or a crossroad for me, and I do not want to be too hasty to make any decisions."
Fan left Huayi Brothers in February 2007 and then started her own studio, Fan Bingbing Studio. She starred in eight films in 2007, winning the Best Supporting Actress Award at the 44th Golden Horse Film Awards for her role in The Matrimony. She also won the Best Actress Award at the 4th Eurasia International Film Festival for her role in the film Lost in Beijing.
In 2008, Fan started an arts school in Huairou, Beijing, and served as its principal, but the school was actually run by her parents. She also became the leader of the acting team of West Movie Group's arts centre. That year, her studio made its first television production, Rouge Snow (2008), adapted from the novel of the same name. Fan played the starring role in the production, portraying a poor girl who fights for freedom against fate after being sold to a wealthy and influential clan.
In 2009, her studio produced The Last Night of Madam Chin, a story about a beautiful dancer's legendary life, adapted from the novel of the same name by Bai Xianyong. That year, Fan starred in Shinjuku Incident and was praised by critics for her performance. She also challenged her first comedy role in Sophie's Revenge alongside Zhang Ziyi. Fan then featured in Bodyguards and Assassins, which earned her a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Hong Kong Film Awards.
In 2010, Fan starred in Chen Kaige’s historical epic, Sacrifice. Fan said that she chose the role as she was moved by Princess Zhuang Ji's great courage and a very fierce maternal love. On October 24, Buddha Mountain starring Fan premiered at the 23rd Tokyo International Film Festival, and earned her the Best Actress Award. In April 2010, Fan was ranked first on the "50 Most Beautiful People in China" list by the newspaper Beijing News.
In 2011, Fan starred in the martial arts film Shaolin alongside Andy Lau and Jackie Chan and The Founding of a Party, which was released to mark the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party of China. The same year, she participated in French film Stretch with Nicolas Cazalé and David Carradine, as well as South Korean production My Way. In May, she appeared at the 64th Cannes Film Festival to promote My Way together with director Kang Je-gyu and actors Jang Dong-gun and Joe Odagiri. In October, she became a member of the International Competition Jury of 24th Tokyo International Film Festival.
For the first half of 2012, Fan attended many fashion shows in Paris. On 16 May, she attended the opening ceremony of the 65th Cannes Film Festival as the only East Asian global spokesperson on behalf of L'Oreal Paris. Forbes ranked Fan third on the 2012 Forbes China Celebrity 100 List based on her success in that year.
On July 17, she appeared at the first press conference to promote the film Double Xposure, which was released in China on September 29. In this film, she portrays a girl who, after suffering trauma during childhood, experiences visual hallucinations after witnessing her father kill her mother. Most film critics gave overwhelmingly high praise to Fan's performance, and she won the Huading Awards for Best Actress. The film was a huge financial success, with a domestic gross of more than ¥100 million, which broke the box office record for a domestic art film in China. On December 12, Fan appeared in Lost in Thailand, in which she did an unpaid cameo so as to "help" her first-time filmmaker friend, Xu Zheng. The film broke the box office record for Chinese films in China to become one of the highest-grossing Chinese films of all time.
In 2013, Fan appeared as Dr. Wu's assistant, Wu Jiaqi, in the mainland Chinese version of Iron Man 3, which was released on May 1. Commenting on her role, Fan said, "People familiar with me know that I am willing to help friends. The production of Iron Man 3 asked me whether I had time to shoot for half-day to help, so I went. ... Helping friends makes me feel at ease." The same year, she starred alongside Aarif Rahman in the romantic comedy One Night Surprise, which aired on Chinese Valentine's Day. The low-budget film became a commercial success and received positive reviews.
Fan topped the 2013 Forbes China Celebrity 100 List. She became the first Asian celebrity ambassador for the Champagne House Moët & Chandon, and also the brand ambassador for Chopard. On May 18, Fan was honoured as the International Artist of the Year in Cannes by The Hollywood Reporter.

In 2014, Fan portrayed the mutant Blink (Clarice Ferguson) in the American superhero film X-Men: Days of Future Past. She also announced that she has a four-film contract with 20th Century Fox. The film was released globally and resulted in increased international fame and recognition for Fan. On May 31, Barbie announced the launch of the Fan Bingbing Celebrity Specialty doll in Shanghai. Fan became the first actress from China to be invited to join the Barbie global celebrity Hall of Fame. Louis Vuitton also chose Fan as the first Asian actress to be provided with a specially tailored dress for their red carpet.
Fan then returned to television after a 6-year hiatus in The Empress of China, the third television production by Fan Bingbing Studio. Boasting a total budget of over ¥300 million (roughly US$49.53 million), it is believed to be the among most expensive TV series in Chinese history. In the series, Fan portrays the titular character Wu Zetian, the only female emperor in Chinese history. The 82-episode TV series was broadcast on Hunan Television from December 21, 2014 to February 5, 2015, and recorded the highest ratings for the year. The same year, she starred in wuxia fantasy film The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom.
In 2015, Fan joined the CCTV variety show as a judge in Amazing Chinese and as a contestant in the reality television show Challenger's Alliance. She starred in Ever Since We Love, her fourth collaboration with director Li Yu. Fan won the Best Actress award at the 1st Berlin Chinese Film Festival for her role in the film.

Heart Ali, a project started by Fan and Chen Lizhi (the general manager of Beijing Maxtimes Culture Development Co.Ltd), is aimed at helping children suffering from congenital heart disease in Ngari Prefecture in Tibet. Fan has visited them several times with medical teams to identify children in need of treatment. After identification, the children and their parents are brought in groups to Beijing or Shanghai for surgery.
The first screening was held on 8 August 2010, when Fan and several others from Beijing went to Ngari to screen children with congenital heart disease. They diagnosed 267 children with congenital heart disease. The second screening was In June 2011. A volunteer group, convened by Fan Bingbing Studio and Chen Lizhi, including members from Fan's studio, two doctors from Tsinghua University First Affiliated Hospital Heart Diseases Center and nine other volunteers, carrying portable echocardiography equipment, went to Ngari to diagnose children with congenital heart disease.

Since August 2010, more than 200 children with congenital heart disease have received medical treatment in Beijing and Shanghai.
On 13 May 2010, Fan wore a "Dragon Robe" on the red carpet of the 63rd Cannes Film Festival. The dress, co-designed by Chinese designer Laurence Hsu and Fan herself, features two leaping dragons and crashing waves on the hem, in the bright yellow colour that was exclusively used by emperors in ancient China. The dress was collected by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London on 12 March 2012. Laurence Hsu announced that the dress shown at the museum is a modified version of the original, which was bought by Madame Tussauds.
On 11 May 2011, Fan, wearing a crane dress, appeared on the red carpet at the opening ceremony of the 64th Cannes Film Festival. The dress was auctioned off by Fan herself for about a million RMB for her charity project, Heart Ali, on 27 April 2012.
On the red carpet of the opening ceremony of the 65th Cannes Film Festival, Fan wore an elegant pale strapless gown designed by her friend Christopher Bu, decorated with bright floral designs and stories about the Four Beauties of ancient China.
