Biography

From modeling to acting, the worldly Maggie Q managed to find success with a steady climb into the gaze of global movie-going audiences. A petite, but alluring presence, Q put her days of merely posing for the camera behind her after she was championed by Hong Kong cinema icon Jackie Chan and, taking a cue from him, tapped into her inner action star for roles in "Manhattan Midnight" (2001) and "Rush Hour 2" (2001). With looks and agility, Q vaulted to a place alongside Hollywood's top action stars, particularly with summer hits in which she more than kept up with the lead male star in films like "Mission Impossible III" (2006) and "Live Free or Die Hard" (2007). She broadened her horizons with a part in the comedy "Balls of Fury" (2007) while co-starring opposite Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor in the thriller "Deception" (2008). Q moved over to television and starred on the reboot series, "Nikita" (The CW, 2010- ), which quickly established a loyal fanbase and cemented her action star bona fides.
