YesAsia Editorial Description

Maybe Liu Xiaoqing was born to play Wu Zetian. The legendary Chinese actress/producer/tycoon/ex-convict portrayed the Tang Dynasty Empress in a 1995 television series, and recently reprised the role in the new CCTV production The Shadow of Empress Wu, a role tailor-made for her.

This time, the story centers on Wu's later years of her life, from her forties (when she was still the Queen) until her death at 82. The drama attempts to vindicate the controversial Empress who has often been condemned as an ambitious woman who usurped power from her husband, the Emperor. Here, Wu's rise to power is depicted as driven by responsibility and love. Her friendship with a Sichuan female official played by Eva Huang (Kung Fu Hustle) gives the story forward momentum.

Apart from starring, Liu doubles as art director, leaving her fingerprints all over this epic, expensive and extravagant period production. Other significant cast members include Taiwan actor Vincent Jiao, Mainland actor Yang Zi, and famous actor/director Jiang Wen, who was a former boyfriend of Liu's, and makes a cameo appearance here.
