Naalala niyo pa ang magaling na child star sa sikat na movie na Cj7? Magugulat ka na lang sa itsura niya ngayon


Many were surprised with the new look of Xu Jiao, the kid in the movie CJ7.

In 2008, Xu Jiao became a household name at the age of nine.

When she was selected by Hong Kong comedy superstar Stephen Chow Sing-chi to feature in his Chinese science-fiction comedy CJ7.

Xu Jiao played the role of a boy in the film CJ7 back in 2008. Out of 10,000 children screened for the part, Hong Kong actor-director Stephen Chow picked her.

Her long tresses shaved to play Chow’s son, and starring opposite an alien dog in the film, Xu impressed audiences with her acting skills.

Chow played the role of Ti, a poor widower who works long hours at a construction site so he can send his son to a posh school.

The film took US$54 million at the global box office, catapulted Xu to overnight stardom.

She won the best new performer award at the 28th Hong Kong Film Awards for her performance.

The emotional challenge of portraying such a character proved daunting for Xu Jiao, who had no acting experience.

The Chinese actress admitted Filming CJ7 was a traumatic experience for her because Chow is so strict.

They have to play every scene 20 to 30 times on average.

Apparently, Xu Jiao has grown up to become a goddess after many years. She not only possesses the cuteness of a girl, but also the confident charm of a supermodel.

Because Xu Jiao loves the culture of Hanfu very much, she often wears Hanfu to show the appearance of “Xianqi”.

At the same time, she actively develops sideline business, establishes a clothing brand, and sells her favorite Hanfu herself.

Take a look at her photos below:

What can you say? Do you also think that she’s a Lil boy before?

Maymay has been linked to onscreen partner Edward Barber ever since they got out of the Pinoy Big Brother house.

But much to their fans’ dismay, the two later on confirmed that they are better off as friends and will be pursuing solo projects for the mean time.

Pareho po namin na-realize na sa estado ng buhay namin ngayon, we both are still very young, and there is so much more we still want to achieve in our lives,” they said in the joint statement.

“We both agree there is no need to rush into anything. This means not having a romantic relationship between us at this point,” they added.

In an interview in January of this year, Edward also stressed out his content with his friendship with Maymay.

Going back on her interview with Mega, the actress said that she has now a direct path as an artist.

“Dahil sa experience ko po for five years dito sa industriya, mas nakilala ko ang sarili ko. Now I know my strengths and weaknesses. And, because of that I can now face problems and difficulties head on. My direction in life has also become clearer– lalo na’t alam kong nakakapagbigay ito ng saya at tulong sa iba,” she stated.
