Even at 48, Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh has lost none of her finesse when it comes to shooting an action film.
While it has been a decade since she last appeared in a martial arts movie – Lee Ang’s seminal “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” – Yeoh still managed to do 95 per cent of her own stunts in her latest movie, the John Woo-produced Wuxia (martial arts chivalry) film “Reign of Assassins” (RoA).
Dedication, it seems, is Yeoh’s middle name.
“I’ve always believed in submitting my best in whatever I do. The end result usually takes my breath away, as I reflect on it at the end of the day.
