Biography

Zhao Wei, or Vicki Zhao(赵薇) was born on March 12, 1976. She attended the Beijing Film Academy and began her interest for acting when she first started working as an extra on the set of a film. A prolific singer and actor, she has acted in over 30 films and television series with 7 albums. Her role in the 1999 television series Princess Pearl was the catalyst for her rise to stardom. Eventually she went on to win the coveted Golden Eagle Award for Best Actress, not an easy feat considering she was the youngest actress to win it. In recent news Vicki has churned out many critically acclaimed albums which has also earned multiple awards. Some include the "Best Stage Performance Award", "Mainland's Most Popular Female Singer", and "Most Popular Female Artist." Vicki has been in the spotlight not only because of her acting and music career, she is the subject of much controversy. She was featured on the cover of Bazaar Magazine in a military dress with a Japanese flag. Due to historical tensions between China and Japan, Zhao received a lot of flack and backlash from fans and the government.
