Life and Career
Zhou was born to a middle class family. Zhou Xun later enrolled at the Zhejiang Arts Institute (浙江省藝術學校), a decision which her parents initially objected as they wanted her to graduate from a university. Nonetheless, Zhou fought to further her interest in the dramatic arts and was accepted. While she was in her teens and schooling, she was handpicked for a role in a movie Strange Tales amongst Old and desolute Tombs《古墓荒斋》.

In 2002, she starred in the television remake of Jinyong's wuxia novel The Legend of the Condor Heroes (射鵰英雄傳) as "Huang Rong" with actor Li Yapeng as her male lead. The series was one of the most watched in mainland China in 2003. Zhou then successfully entered the Hong Kong film market in Peter Chan's musical film Perhaps Love in 2005. This role won her the "Best Actress" award in the Hong Kong Film Awards. Aside from acting, she has also released solo albums in 2003 titled Summer (夏天) and in 2005 Come Across (偶遇), and sang for soundtracks for the motion picture Baober In Love, Xin Bian Guo Le Xi San Meng You Xian Jing, and Perhaps Love.

After The Legend of the Condor Heroes, her next wuxia project was Feng Xiaogang's The Banquet, in which she played a supporting role. Her singing was also featured in the movie and on the soundtrack. Taking on two roles in the Susie Au Shuet-Yi directed Ming Ming, Zhou first played the role of Ming Ming who is in love with D and stole things for him and then she played Na Na who has also fallen in love with D. The film is also known by the name Na Na On The Run and was released in 2007. The film won high praise at the 11th Pusan International Film Festival held in South Korea in the month of October, 2006. On the day of the film release, she also released her new music video, the song of which is the theme song of her film Ming Ming.

Zhou will be playing the part of a taxi driver on the look out for her missing boyfriend in the Beijing Film Academy professor Cao Baoping directed urban romance movie, The Encounter of Li Mi. The shooting of the movie in the southern Yunnan province of China is expected to start on 21st Aug, 2007 and will take around 2 months to complete.

It's interesting to see just how pervasive virtual memory has become in our every day lives. It's like everywhere I turn, I see something with a card slot or USB port, haha. I guess it makes sense though, considering how much cheaper memory has become as of late...

Ahhh... who am I to complain. I can't get by a day without using my R4 / R4i!
