Biography

Jing Tian was born on July 21, 1988. She grew up in Xi’an, Shanxi Province, where the vast armies of Terracotta Warriors were discovered, dating from Qin dynasty and the first Emperor of China. In 2001, at the age of 13 years old, she moved to Beijing in order to pursue her dream of becoming a movie actress. In the capital, she attended and graduated from both the Beijing Dance and Beijing Film academies

For the past two years she has portrayed a number of roles in action films and historical Chinese TV dramas. This has provided an opportunity to work with some of China’s greats in the movie and TV industry. In early 2014, she worked in Yu Zheng’s TV production of Ban Shu Chuan Qi, an historical drama set in the Han dynasty. She played the lead role of “ Ban Shu “ , a beautiful young Teacher at the Imperial Palace kindergarten, who captures the attention and heart of the Emperor. She’s currently on set for another TV show called “Da Yue’ Er”, where she is also working in a lead role playing the Qing Empress “Da Yue’ Er”.

In late 2013, she collaborated with director Clarence Fok and action movie star Donnie Yen on “Special ID”. In this film she played the role of “Fang Jing”, an undercover police detective. Following this production, her next project “Police Story 2013” was released. Here she had the opportunity to work with Chinese legend Jackie Chan and actor Liu Ye. In this action packed thriller, she played the role of Jackie Chan’s rebellious daughter. Just coming off of the “Special ID” production, she already had experience working in an action film. However, her experience working side-by-side with Jackie Chan allowed her to learn a lot more, taking in tips and advice from one of the best in the business. In early 2014, she was able to collaborate with another of China’s top actors in Chow-Yun Fat, as well as Nicholas Tse. For all three of these projects, vigorous training was necessary, especially for “Special ID”. Despite having a lot of experience in dance and martial arts prior to the start of her acting career, she still had to go through two months of training for this film. She was able to train with Donnie Yen’s professional team from Japan. Since the character of “Fang Jing” is very tough and strong, various exercises and activities were performed in and outside the gym. Like “Police Story 2013 ”, “Special ID” is packed with action scenes from start to finish. One of the most exciting scenes from the movie is a car chase where she is literally hanging out of the car trying to shoot and catch the villain. It proved to be an exciting and physically demanding role, which drew on her extensive training of dance and martial arts. Through these specialized skills, she’s been able to learn how to coordinate her body with movements needed for these films. It’s very important to be able to balance and control your body at your command and not the other way around. 

Outside of her hectic schedule, Jing Tian often devotes time to help others less fortunate than herself. Most recently this has involved supporting humanitarian missions in earthquake stricken areas, as well as helping disadvantaged children.
