In this video, Maggie Q says, “Out of all the Asian artists, I mean, if there was gonna be anyone who had the right style and the talent, Faye Wong (王菲) is it. I don’t think there’s any other Chinese artist who compares to her. No way. Not even close. There’s not even a close second, in my opinion. No.”

From the moment I saw this video and heard her words, Maggie Q — who starred in Die Hard 4.0 (2007), Mission: Impossible III (2006), Rogue’s Gallery (2009), and many other films — has had my highest respect. Seldom are actors completely candid with the public, especially when it comes to the glowing qualities of another actor, but Maggie Q does just that in this video. She says exactly what fayenatics have known all along, that Faye is so far above her peers that second isn’t even close.
