Michelle Yeoh aka Michelle Khan (Yang Zi Chong)

An absolutely magnificent woman!
Superb actress with an acting range from drama to comedy to action with equal aplomb.
Has no actual martial arts training, but her extensive dance background enables her to perform fight choreography to perfection!
Has done her own fights and stunts whenever allowed.
Over 30 films, and I've seen every one (Even Owl and Dumbo!)
Genre credits include
Kung Fu Panda 2 (Soothsayer)
Reign of Assassins (Xi Yu aka Drizzle)
True Legend (Sister Yu)
Doraemon the New Record of Nobita: Spaceblazer (Tamako)
Babylon A.D. (Sister Rebekka)
Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor [3rd Mummy film] (Zi Juan)
SunShine (Corazon)
Tomorrow Never Dies [18th Eon James Bond film] (Wai Lin)
SilverHawk (Lulu Wong)
Heroic Trio [one of my favorite flicks] (Ching aka Invisible Woman)
Executioners [Heroic Trio II] (Ching)
Magnificent Warriors (Fok Ming-Ming)
Plus a number of police action and historical period pieces,
particularly SuperCop (Police Story III) and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon!
It's rumored she was offered the role of Seraph in the second and third Matrix movies, but turned it down. (The role went to a male actor)

Note: The Invisible Woman in Heroic Trio is not the Marvel Comics character.
Nor is Wonder Woman (played by Anita Mui) the DC Comics character.
From her latest film "The Lady", due for release later this year.
