Wei Min zhi - update on her current life

Real life is sometimes even better than art! :-)

Some info about Min zhi's life after the movie. A wonderful opportunity for a talented actress.


the link does not load

can you try again - as i really like to read about her.

If you can open it - maybe you can cut and paste onto this board


"Don't laugh! This ain't reality TV!


Strange, I just tried the link and it does work. It's not a direct link, it needs to be cut and pasted into your browser address bar.

If that still doesn't work, try going to the main link to the site: and do a search for Wei Minzhi.

I just did and found an older link below.


yes thanks - its works now

Really interesting article.

"Don't laugh! This ain't reality TV!


Wow, thank you so much for this. I haven't read the entire article, but saw her picture and it made me happy! :-) I heard after the movie she did some tea commercials in China, wearing the same clothes in the movie! :-) I've always wondered about what happened to her! And the boy in the movie, too.

Thanks again for this.. This is one of my, if not my, all time favorite movies!


Glad to see her life changed for good after her wonderful performance in Not One Less.

More important than to become a famous actress (or director as she wishes), is the fact that, thanks to the film's success, she have had some opportunities that other kids in her same situation never will have.

Well done, Teacher Mei! I wish you the best. Same to the other kids.


Thanks for this , I adore this film and was wandering what happened to its unique and excellent cast.


Congrats to Wei, I hope the same happens to Zhang. Hopefully China tackles her rural poverty problems so all kids get to go to elementary school at least.


More about her remarkable life after Not One Less. She's now 30, married and has a son Qian Liu.

An article from 2011:

The following are all in Mandarin, but it's pretty easy to get an idea of what's being said. If someone would kindly translate these, that would be greatly appreciated!

A (unknown date) Chinese TV news spot about her marriage and son.

A 2009? interview on Chinese TV (CCTV).
This is an amazing interview in which Minzhi speaks a few times in fluent English, we are introduced to her husband, Jinhui Liu and I believe, her sister and nieces.
