Bio
Ling Bai (BAI Ling / (白靈) 白灵) is a United States actress, born on Monday, October 10, 1966, in Chengdu, China.
Trivia
  • One of People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World 1998"
  • Bai Ling served three years in the People Liberation's Army in China entertaining troops in Tibet. She had a bout of depression which sent her to a mental hospital. She then became a Chinese movie star. All of this occurred before she was 18.
  • Had a four line appearance in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005). Unfortunately her appearance (along with a small cameo of George Lucas's daughter) got cut out (G. Lucas: "It wasn't like it was a major thing to begin with and I just cut that whole secondary story out of the movie quite a while ago").
  • Lives in Marina Del Rey
  • Name means 'white spirit' in English
  • Member of jury at the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) in 2005; for her light dresses that didn't always cover her essentials all the time, German tabloids nicknamed her "die Berlinackte" ("the Berlinaked").
  • Claimed that her role on Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) was cut during editing because of her posing for the June 2005 issue of US "Playboy" magazine. She was the first woman from the People's Republic of China on its cover. George Lucas strongly denied that this was the reason she was cut.
  • She took classes at The Lee Strasberg Institute (1991) and New York University. (1991)
  • Cut off most of her waist-length hair for her role in Anna and the King (1999).
  • Was the July 2007 entry in Stuff magazine's 2006-2007 pin up calendar.
  • She turned in one of the most acclaimed performances for her first Hong Kong movie Sam gang yi (2004) ( "Three Extremes: Dumplings"). Her character is a creepy 60 year old ageless beauty, and she helps women by performing illegal abortions, but she also uses the unwanted fetuses to be made into dumplings which is her secret for ageless beauty.
  • Good friends with Kimberly Stewart.
  • Arrested for shoplifting at Los Angeles International Airport on February 13, 2008.
  • Perhaps her first public appearance in the U.S. was on Jan. 16, 1994 when she accepted the Best Supporting Actress Award on behalf of the winner, her countrywoman Li Gong, who could not attend, at the annual New York Film Critics Circle ceremony held at the Pegasus Room (Rockefeller Ctr.).
  • Ziyi Zhang's character in 2046 (2004) is called Bai Ling.
