Ming-Na Wen (Aanes/Zee)

Also known as "Ming-Na" or "Ming Wen", she has one of the more distinctive voices in the business, as shown by the extensive amount of animation voice-over work she's done in both tv and film!
Ming's demonstrated her acting chops in The Joy Luck Club and ER and her action prowess in the first Street Fighter film and Push (which is, ironically, opening shortly before the new Street Fighter film debuts).
Note: I complained about her lack of fighting ability in Street Fighter, but she has improved, as shown by her performanaces in Vanished and Push!
UPDATE: Ming's been cast as Agent Melinda May in Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV pilot!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Agent Melinda May)
