Jing Lusi : Puteri Meng Li-Hua~Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa

Jing Lusi

Born in Shanghai, Jing moved to England at the age of five and was raised in Hampshire.  Despite being born to an academic family, Jing fell into performing when she was selected to appear alongside Phillip Schofield and Ria Jones in The Really Useful Group's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at just 10 years old.  Jing went on to study at Peter Symonds' College, Winchester (alumni includes Alexa Chung, Jack Dee and Ben Ainslie) before graduating from University College London in Law. 

Opting out of a privileged legal lifestyle at a top London City firm to pursue her acting career,  Jing's screen debut was in Porcelain Film's 2008 feature filmBreathe, an urban British drama starring Ricci Harnett. Originally auditioning for a minor role, Jing was recast several times during pre-production before finally being offered the part of Lauren, lead support to Harnett's character. Breathe went on to pick up a nomination for Best British Feature Film at the London Independent Film Festival 2010, with Nicholas Winter taking home the Best Director award. 

Jing's next major film role was as Princess Meng Li Hua in KRU Studio's epic historical blockbuster The Malay Chronicles: Bloodlines. She described the job as 'every girl's dream role', landing the part after a chance meeting with lead actor Stephen Rahman Hughes in London, who promptly recommended her to the Studio. After an online audition, Jing secured the role and was flown out to Kuala Lumpur to begin the two month shoot. For her character, Jing learned Bahasa Melayu phonetically, as well as train in stunts and wires with the prestigious Hong Kong Jackie Chan Stunt Crew. Back on home turf, Jing recently completed filming on Jack Falls with Press On Features. 

The film is the concluding part of theJack trilogy, starring Simon Phillips in the title role, with a hearty British cast including Tamer Hussan, Dexter Fletcher, Olivia Hallinan, Jason Flemyng and Martin Kemp.  Aside from acting and modelling, Jing presented a TV series called London Files with Suck My Pop presenter Will Best. The duo undertook various activities that embodied 'cool London', including parkour, Pimp My Bike, and riding on Routemasters.  When not in front of the camera, Jing is currently developing her first feature film, and is part of the Young Vic's directors' network. 

"I want to say a big thank you to everyone for your kind words and support for 'Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa'. It was a joy to be in Malaysia and work on the film.  I am so proud to be part of a film that has received such positive responses and also to have broken records and be at No. 1 at the Box Office. It was a challenging shoot at times, but it has all been worthwhile to receive such great comments from the Malaysian audience. We all had such an amazing time shooting, so I'm glad people are enjoying it as much as we did making it." ~Jing Lusi.
