The Celina Jade Q&A!

Celina Jade, is a Chinese American actress, model, and singer currently starring as Shado on the CW series Arrow.

Born in Hong Kong to American Kung Fu star, Roy Horan (who shared the big screen with the legendary Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan), action fighting has been in Celina’s blood from an early age and her passion shows in her lead role in Legendary Assassin.

It was evident that Celina would be an entertainer from a young age. Her love for music led to her winning an Asia-wide singing competition at 14 in which she landed a record deal with Japanese producer, Tetsuya Komuro. Together, they released two EPs, ”Good News Bad News” and ‘Kwong Ying Zi Gan’. In July, 2000, she performed alongside Namie Amuro at the G8 Summit in Okinawa, Japan for the World Leaders. At age 15, she had her first No. 1 hit with the song, “Kwong Ying Zi Gan” in Taiwan. She has since then been featured in multiple ad campaigns for Marks & Spencer, Cathay Pacific, Motorola and Ponds globally.

Celina’s ambitions did not stop here. In 2003, she went on to pursue a a degree in Management from the prestigious London School of Economics and graduated at the top of her class with First Class Honors. Despite this penchant for the analytical, Celina followed her passion for the creative arts. She signed with music mogul Paco Wong (EMI) in 2007.

Since her role in Legendary Assassin, she has garnered a solid fan base from her roles in the films Love Connected, and All’s Well Ends Well; TV shows like Dolce Vita, Jade Solid Gold; and, regular appearances across TV channels in China including CCTV, Hunan TV, and CETV.

Celina also sang the theme song for Legendary Assassin, “Ceng Jing Xin Teng”, which was performed live on TV and radio stations across Asia.

In 2009, she left Golden Typhoon (EMI) and signed with Terry McBride, CEO of Nettwerk Music Group (the force behind Avril Lavigne, Sarah McLachlan, Dido).

Thereafter, she landed her first role in a US movie, the Man With the Iron Fists, as directed by the RZA. She also began filming her first web series, Wish Upon a Star, as lead actress alongside Asian superstar Peter Ho.
