In 1980, Chen moved to the USA, and studied film. Her first Hollywood role was in ''[[Literature/AsianSaga Tai-Pan]]''. She also acted in ''Film/TheLastEmperor'' and ''Heaven And Earth'', and played DragonLady Jocelyn Packard in the Creator/DavidLynch series ''Series/TwinPeaks''. But she grew tired of playing the "exotic Asian lady," and began directing both Chinese and American films, such as ''Xiu Xiu The Sent Down Girl'' and ''Autumn In UsefulNotes/NewYork''.

She was born in Shanghai as Chen Chong, and grew up during the CulturalRevolution. When she was in high school, Jiang Qing (the wife of MaoZedong) saw her excel in target shooting. This led to the young Chen Chong being inducted into the Young Actors' Training Program of the Shanghai Film Studio. She graduated school at 17, and began acting while studying English in university. In 1979, she starred in ''Little Flower'', and the fame she received from this role led to ''Time'' calling her "the Creator/ElizabethTaylor of China."
