The 10 Best Qualities Most Chinese Actresses Possess
As the country of China displays more outgoing influence on the modern world, attention gets focused on its own film and acting industry and Chinese actresses in particular.
Given the expanding influence, the differences in what is appealing to an actress from a Chinese crowd compared to a Western audience has briefly become more prominent. While a Chinese audience prefers a more traditional and polite actress, the Western crowd enjoys physical strength and attitude as well as beauty. So the typical Chinese actress that is popular back in China may not be as popular abroad and vice versa.
Having noted that, there are still some very distinct qualities Chinese actresses have that many find appealing. The following is a list of the 10 general qualities found in a typical Chinese actress, from 10 to 1.
10) They are fair-skinned
Good facial skin is key point of what many Chinese view as a form of beauty. Despite the comments about being tan or golden-skinned, many actresses from China have pale and clean complexions.
9) They have deep, round eyes
Also contrary to the belief that Asian people have small, flat eyes, Chinese culture believes that round, almond-shaped eyes show more beauty. As a result, many of top actresses and models from China display these qualities where their large eyes makes it feel that you are looking into their soul through them.
8) They are tall and slender
Again belying normal stereotypes of a nationality that tends to have, on average, a shorter stature than the rest of the world, the Chinese view of beauty means a female should be tall, almost statuesque, but also lean and slender. Thus, many of the more popular actresses in China tend to be several inches taller than the typical 5-foot, 3-inch average height of a Chinese woman. As for being lean, that almost goes in hand with the next quality on the list.
7) They usually have long, illustrious hair
While this isn’t always the case, but the more popular actresses within China tend to have long, flowing straight hair. There are few curves in their hair, but rather their strands tend to cascade over their shoulders and down toward the back. This is another popular view of what Chinese tend to think as beautiful.
6) They are generally fit
Many Chinese actresses are lean not only because that is the favored look of their national audience, but they are generally fit too. Many engage in physical activities because that is the Chinese tradition. The country generally has a lean diet that is big on rice and vegetables as well as more traditional meats and spices. Many residents of all ages practice meditative techniques such as tai chi in the mornings, helping them to stay light with their frames.
5) They aren’t obsessed with their chest size
Unlike Western culture, the Chinese don’t goggle at large breasts, fake or real. Their beliefs in having a nice, lean figure means that the typical actress in China is more concerned with their overall appearance rather than a particular part of their anatomy. In fact, good facial features may be considered more important in Chinese culture compared to whether a female has D-cups.
4) They tend to be professional
One belief about the Chinese people does carry over to the world of acting and that is their tendency to be committed to their work and always show professionalism. This is the case for female actresses in China. You rarely hear any of them putting up diva acts backstage or behind the scenes. They don’t demand as much from their directors and co-workers and instead tend to blend in with the rest of the crew.
3) They always seem to show poise
Some would say that their acting style is rigid, but a typical Chinese actress tends to show good poise and posture even when acting in scenes. There is a formality in their acting technique and can sometimes be short on emotion, but long on projecting a steady demeanor, whether it is a demure look or a more fierce one.
2) They are good with choreography
Many of the leading ladies of China are fairly fluent in hand-to-hand fighting or with weapons. Because martial arts films remain a big part of the Chinese film industry, many of these ladies have likely acted out a fighting scene at some point of their careers. Because of this, they are very disciplined about how they move in scenes.
1) They are graceful
Because of their strong with the way they move and generally show good poise, many of the asian actresses have acquired a sort of gracefulness toward their movements during scenes. Even in fighting scenes, there is a certain amount of grace in which they move through each action. That carries over to even in general scenes.
Because of the way Chinese traditionally view beauty and tend to live their lives, there are certain qualities a typical actress from China would have. They appear more graceful and poised than their Western counterparts. They also have a more distinct figure of being tall, long-haired, with large eyes, and soft, smooth skin. A certain look and the way she moves about is of much greater concern to a Chinese as opposed to the rest of the world.
