Disney has cast Chinese actress Liu Yifei to star in its live-action version of “Mulan”. The past few years have seen an increasing number of Asian stars making it big in Hollywood, with Singapore’s very own Chin Han having been signed on by Creative Artists Agency in the United States, an American talent agency that manages the likes of Lady Gaga, Brad Pitt, and Will Smith.
Malaysian actress Raja Ilya has been in the spotlight since the start of 2017 after it was revealed that she will be joining the Marvel universe for an as-yet-unknown role. The 32-year-old confirmed with Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore on Thursday (30 November) that she has not been given a standalone character and will be heading to the United States for filming in February 2018. Raja Ilya was in Singapore to sign a Memorandum of Understanding related to a new movie she has produced, entitled “Rafira”.
