Xun Zhou Biography
- Zhou Xun (born October 18, 1974) is a Chinese actress and singer. She is regarded as one of the "Four Young Dan actresses" in China (Ã¥Â›Â›Ã¥Â°ÂÃ¨ÂŠÂ±Ã¦Â—Â¦) in the early 2000s, along with Zhang Ziyi, Xu Jinglei and Zhao Wei. Zhou was born to a middle-class family. Her father, Zhou Tianning (Chinese: Ã¥Â‘Â¨Ã¥Â¤Â©Ã¥Â®Â; pinyin: ZhÃ…Âu TiÃ„ÂnnÃƒÂng) was a local film projectionist and her mother, Chen Yiqin (Chinese: Ã©Â™ÂˆÃ¤Â»Â¥Ã§ÂÂ´; pinyin: ChÃƒÂ©n YÃ‡ÂqÃƒÂn) was a salesperson at a department store.
