Zhang Hanyu (born 19 December 1964) is a Chinese actor.


Zhang graduated from the Beijing Central Academy of Drama in 1988. He started his career by doing Mandarin voice dubbing[1][2] for films such as Shark Tale,[3] The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, and Troy.[4] Zhang subsequently played minor roles in some television series before appearing as supporting characters in films directed by Feng Xiaogang, such as Sorry Baby, Cell Phone, Big Shot's Funeral, and A World Without Thieves.[5] He was called "Feng Xiaogang's imperial dragon casing" (馮小剛御用龍套),[6] and earned the appreciation of Feng.[7]

In 2007, Zhang was cast as a lead character for the first time in the war drama film Assembly, which grossed a record 260 million RMB in box office earnings.[8] Zhang's performance propelled him to fame and placed him among the ranks of first-class Chinese film stars. In 2008, Zhang also won the Best Actor Award at the 29th Hundred Flowers Awards[9] and the Best Leading Actor Award at the Golden Horse Film Awards.[10] The following year, Zhang won the Outstanding Actor Award at the Huabiao Awards.
