Talking about her casting in the TV series reboot of Ang Lee‘s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Chan said she was honored for the chance not only to be in the show – but to be a fighter.

“Truly honored,” she said of the casting, adding. “I feel even more honored because I was one of only four women – aside from Michelle Yeoh – cast in a fighting role.”

Yeoh, reprising her role as Yu Shu Lien, will serve as the mentor to Chan’s character, Silver Dart Shi.

“She’s one of the four swordsman recruited by Donnie Yen’s character to go on a journey with him to retrieve the Sword of Destiny,” Chan revealed about her character. “Everyone wants the sword because the one who controls it rules the martial world. So, basically, we help Yen in his journey so the bad guys don’t get the sword.”
