In many ways, Chinese-American actresses Joan Chen and Vivian Wu have similar trajectories in life. They both became movie stars in their native Shanghai, went on to attend college in the U.S. and become American citizens, were shot into fame in Hollywood with The Last Emperor, spent years playing mostly supporting roles in Hollywood, and now have returned to the Chinese entertainment industry, even guest starring together in Ruyi’s Royal Love. Joan Chen recently directed her second Chinese-languge film English 英格力士 , while Vivian Wu recently produced and starred in Dead Pigs 海上浮城, the directorial debut of Cathy Yan ( who is currently directing DC’s Birds of Prey ).

And now, here’s their first cover together in the 30+ years they’ve known each other, as photographed by Feng Hai.

Chen Feiyu in The Forbidden Palace, someone cast him as The Last Emperor!

This photoshoot of Chen Feiyu in The Forbidden Palace is not only visually stunning but gives me so much Puyi (China’s last emperor) vibes that after starring at the photos long enough, I decided Chen Feiyu could definitely pass for a better-looking Puyi. Someone hurry and make another drama or film about him while Chen Feiyu is still young. Hey Chen Kaige, here’s your chance for a great Puyi bioepic.

Chen Feiyu just finished up filming for  Legend of Awakening and has been seen at auditions for the Beijing Film Academy. He was also studying for the SAT’s last year, so he may also come back to the US for college.
