Happy Birthday today to Michelle Yeoh who was born on this day in 1962, she turns 39.
Yeoh came to the attention of the Bond community when she was cast as Chinese Agent Wai Lin in 1997's 'Tomorrow Never Dies'. Before Tomorrow Never Dies her films had been limited to the Asian Community. However, in the year 2000 one such Asian film won her a world wide recognition that not even Bond could give her. The film was Wo hu cang long aka. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Yeoh recently talked of returning to the Bond films as Wai Lin and revealed her agent had contacted EON Productions about the prospect. Will we see her in Bond 20? We'll just have to wait and see!
Happy Birthday Michelle! And a big thank you to NJ for the tip off!
